#LI-BP1

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING

  • As a member of the Core Transaction Engineering team, you will deliver small to medium projects and features to our 2 React applications -- one uses React 15 and the other uses React 17, and our Node.js backend. You will also write a full suite of automated tests with every new feature and bug fix to ensure production stability (unit, integration, e2e)
  • You will also be in charge of evaluating and articulating end-to-end designs for strengths and weaknesses (e.g., complexity, quality, scalability, security, performance, etc) as well as identifying tech debt and making recommendations on how to tackle it
  • You will work with and help mentor other engineers, help in designing solutions to problems, and communicate with leadership about the needs of the team
  • Lastly, you will uphold application performance, security, and standard methodologies within the team by providing constructive criticism during code reviews

WHAT WOULD MAKE YOU A STRONG FIT FOR THE ROLE?

  • We are looking for someone with at least 3 to 5 years of experience building web applications in production environments. You should be able to write clean, documented, and well-tested code
  • Ideally, JavaScript is your main programming language. You have worked with React for the last 2 years. You should be comfortable with React 16/17, you should know the standard methodologies and patterns (like hooks). You also have some kind of experience with Node.js
  • You should also have experience with testing. At Side, we use Jest for unit tests and Cypress for End to End tests. You should have experience writing meaningful unit tests
  • On top of being a great engineer, you must have a great team-player mentality
  • It would be a plus if you have experience with GraphQL, Firebase, Typescript, security best practices, or accessibility but it is not required

COMPENSATION/BENEFITS

  • Competitive salary
  • Stock options
  • Best-in-class benefits, including 100% healthcare coverage (medical, vision and dental)
  • Flexible PTO
  • Learning & Development credit
  • Pet friendly environment

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

I’ve been at Side for almost 3 years, and it’s been the most fun I’ve ever had at work. We know what we’re doing, we know why, and we know how. And, the cherry on top, is that the work we’re doing has a huge impact on the lives and businesses of our clients and is transforming the real estate industry along the way.

How does the company support your career growth?

I've found a company where I can constantly grow and evolve, be supported by my peers and management, and truly make an impact on both the company and our customers. Side empowers employees by providing transparency, and a culture of open communication and collaboration. We're recognized for our successes and never punished for owning our mistakes.

Jess Lawrence

Manager, Agent Success

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

In operations, creativity is about finding a better way to complete a task or solve a problem. It is very focused on the process and pushing the team to consider different ways to get to the end goal. It is my responsibility to set very clear goals and give the team the latitude to figure out how to achieve these goals.

Jake Lyman

Head of Broker Operations

What does career growth look like on your team?

We have a recruiter/sourcer model at Side. Two of our Sourcers were promoted in the last year from Recruiter Coordinator positions. I love this! I really like growing talent within when possible, and investing in training and development. To do this well, I think it is important to give stretch opportunities so someone can grow their capabilities.
