HousingAnywhere is hiring a

Frontend Software Engineer

Rotterdam, Netherlands

Our Vision 🌏🏡

To help people with housing, anywhere.

Our Mission 💻✨

Building a safe, efficient and global rental marketplace for anyone looking for or renting out a place.

Our Core Values 💛

We Care. We Perform. We Evolve.

Your Impact 💥

As a Software Engineer within the Product Development department, you will work closely with talented designers, product owners, and other Frontend and Backend Engineers to bring a superb user experience to the tenants and hosts on HousingAnywhere.

You will join the Bookings and Users team and will be responsible for building the most crucial part of the rental experience - the booking. You will make sure that the future tenants can seamlessly move from signing up on the platform to renting their new home. Our team's domains include user registration and profiles, rental application, chat, and bookings tracking. We have lots of exciting features and experiments planned for the upcoming months and cannot wait for you to join and help us make them happen.

And our stack? 🔧

We use React. Our codebase has been almost entirely migrated to Typescript. While historically we relied on Redux for state management, we are increasingly adopting React Hooks and React Context API. 

We strongly focus on performance and optimization to improve the SEO rank of the product.

We pay great attention to the way we test our code to ensure the quality of code, allow refactoring over time, and increase confidence that what we build is right.
