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.

About the role:
We are looking for an Engineering Manager for our Data Platform team who can help us build the systems to scale up our data acquisition, ingestion, and processing efforts to 100x where it is today. Data is core to everything that Opendoor does – we use it to price homes, make business decisions, and power experiences for our customers. As we grow as a company, we will have to scale up our systems to handle ever-increasing amounts of data. As the engineering manager for this team, you will mentor and lead the software engineers that will be at the center of this data. Your team will build the platform to empower the rest of the company to seamlessly ingest and process data, track data quality, report reliability metrics, and catalog output tables. Our future data science research direction, machine learning strategy, and analytics will run through your team. As a hands-on leader for this team, we will be looking to you to steward the vision and lead the charge to support that future.

As an Engineer Manager, you will:

  • Help build and lead great software teams to deliver world-class systems
  • Support and grow your direct reports and peer teams
  • Champion engineering and data science, establishing metrics and process for regular assessment and improvement
  • Provide technical leadership and guidance to both your team members and your project peers
  • Working closely with product and data science, help engineers gain business context, improve prioritization skills, and hone their craft
  • Promote an engaged, product-focused, positive engineering culture
  • Uncover better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it

We are looking for teammates who have:

  • BS or higher degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related technical field
  • Quantitative experience, either via previous job experience or a degree in Mathematics, Statistics, or a related field
  • 4+ years of experience building production software systems
  • 2+ years managing data platform related products (data processing, data warehousing, data ingestion)
  • Prior experience with data processing technology (e.g. Spark, Hadoop) and workflow management tools (e.g. Airflow, dbt)
  • Prior experience handling complex external data ingestion involving a variety of types of data
  • Proven ability to use data and metrics to drive decisions
  • History of independently leading cross-functional projects and prioritizing work based on business impact
  • Ability to understand the needs of stakeholders, define business requirements, and architect systems that will scale and extend to accommodate them over time
  • Expertise in breaking down complex problems, documenting solutions, and sequencing work to make iterative improvements
  • A sense of ownership and a passion for delighting customers through innovation and creative solutions to complex problems
  • Excellent communication skills and high attention to detail
  • Experience hiring, mentoring, and leading teams of software engineers, data engineers, and project managers

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.
