Software Engineer, Data Scientist

Mountain View, United States
Full-Time

Thousands of real estate agents have chosen RealScout to help convert $20 leads into $10,000 commission checks. We amass hundreds of data points on every single property, track buyer preferences and behavior, and expose analytics and insights to agents so they can appear super-human to their clients.

We're backed by Joe Lonsdale (Palantir founder), Ken DeLeon (2012's #1 Realtor) and several others - $7m to date [1].

ABOUT THE TEAM

We value continuous improvement and having fun [2]. We have a small team focused on shipping great product and being the #1 engineering team in real estate. We believe in sharing knowledge - whether it be through pair programming, speaking at and attending meetups, holding weekly Lunch & Learns, or Hack Days every other Friday.

We're open source across the stack - Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, ElasticSearch, PostgreSQL, Redis with a bit of Python and ReactJS - and welcome new technologies that best fit the problem at hand.

ABOUT YOU

You laugh in unstructured data's face. You're able to suck in data from messy sources, whip it into shape, and make magic. Whether it's using a deep learning library like Torch or Caffe to classify images into 1 of 9 room types, predicting time on market and final sale price for homes or performing a graph analysis on what percentage of the market our RealScout agents have transacted with, you're able expose intelligent insights using machine learning and statistical analysis.

YOUR PLAYGROUND

More than 10 million homebuyer events (home views, saves, hides, email opens, etc)

~ 1 million active and sold homes directly from the regional MLS apis

Over 1 million human-annotated photos of homes

NEXT STEPS

Feel free to mention any online presence you may have (Github, Twitter, Stackoverflow, etc) and provide links to any of your open source projects, blogs, or anything else you think helps convey your interests and abilities.
