Bungalow is the largest and fastest-growing roommate living company in the United States. We’re on a mission to create a world where everyone can truly feel at home, wherever they want to live.

We work with homeowners across the US to take the hassle out of property management and maximize what they earn so we can provide renters with the best homes the market has to offer.

And we know it can be challenging living with roommates, but we believe it’s worth it. We’re removing the hassle from moving and everyday living and providing an affordable product that helps people live in the cities where they have better access to opportunity.

Role Overview

Our core engineering values are being human focused and team centric – we’re continual learners who give each other permission to fail and take ownership over the things that we build. Our fast-paced, ever-changing environment requires us to move-quickly, and constantly adapt. We are ruthlessly analytical, ensuring our decisions are data-driven, well considered, while maintaining a high bar for quality of delivery.
