Role overview

Compass is building the first modern end-to-end real estate platform by integrating agents, buyers, and sellers through technology.

  • Experience designing larger systems: particularly web services and RESTful APIs, microservice architectures, and data ingestion with a particular emphasis on industry-standard best practices.
  • In-depth understanding and hands-on experience with PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and Memcached
  • AWS services such as EC2, S3, Lambda, and Kinesis
  • BS in CS or EE or equivalent
  • JavaScript and frontend frameworks are a plus
