About Opendoor:  
Founded in 2014, Opendoor’s mission is to empower everyone with the freedom to move. We believe the traditional real estate process is broken and our goal is simple: build a digital, end-to-end customer experience that makes buying and selling a home simple, certain and fast. We have assembled a dedicated team with diverse backgrounds to support more than 100,000 homes bought and sold with us and the customers who have selected Opendoor as a trusted partner in handling one of their largest financial transactions. But the work is far from over as we continue to grow in new markets. Transforming the real estate industry takes tenacity and dedication. It takes problem solvers and builders. It takes a tight knit community of teammates doing the best work of their lives, pushing one another to transform a complicated process into a simple one. So where do you fit in? Whether you’re passionate about real estate, people, numbers, words, code, or strategy -- we have a place for you. Real estate is broken. Come help us fix it.

Analytics Platform is on a mission to democratize learning by building systems that enable company-wide analytics and experimentation. By implementing sufficient instrumentation and designing intuitive data models, we will allow for mechanical investigation of the business. By developing self-serve tools for reporting, we will empower non-technical stakeholders to understand performance at a glance. Finally, by building new capabilities for forecasting and alerting, we will enable more, better, and faster decisions.

  • Partner with infrastructure and product engineers to instrument our backend services and end-to-end user journeys to create visibility for the rest of the business
  • Develop and monitor data pipelines and build out new integrations with third-party tools
  • Work with data scientists to design our data models as inputs to metrics and machine learning models
  • Have the autonomy to help shape the future of data engineering by establishing best practices
  • Architect a company-wide analytics platform to inform daily decision-making

We are looking for:

  • BS or MS degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related technical field
  • Strong programming skills, preferably in PythonFamiliarity with software design principles, including test-driven development
  • 6+ years of experience working with instrumentation, data pipelines, and data warehouses, preferably acting as a data architect in a previous role
  • Proficiency with systems design and data modeling
  • Fluency with workflow management tools, like Airflow or dbt
  • Experience with modern data warehouses, like Snowflake or BigQuery
  • Ability to understand the needs of stakeholders, define business requirements, and architect systems that will scale and extend to accommodate them over time
  • History of independently leading cross-functional projects and prioritizing work based on business impact
  • Expertise breaking down complex problems, documenting solutions, and sequencing work to make iterative improvements

An Insider's view of Opendoor

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

My team works with our sales and support operators. We manage our multiple telephony platforms, including our call center software. Last year, we replaced our old call center vendor solution with a new custom-built telephony platform. Building the unique features each team has been one of our central challenges for much of the past year.

Maggie

Sr. Software Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Opendoor as an intern, responsible for small improvements to our home valuation model’s accuracy. Now, I am one of the leaders on our team - I’m responsible for setting team vision, overseeing systems design for other IC’s, and leading P0 initiatives such as a pricing workflow overhaul that we launched after COVID-19.

Daniel

Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Analytical problem solving requires creativity too. I always encourage my team to consider all the tradeoffs between different options - what if you need to solve the problem in 1 day? How about 6 months? How about unlimited compute resources? We often come up with more creative and better solutions when we intentionally consider all options.
