We are: A team of engineers and real estate geeks evolving the real estate industry. Backed by Ben Kinney Companies, we are a B2B2C enterprise SAAS company making software that allows our customers to maximize home sales. Our development team is headquartered in Bellingham, WA with remote developers working throughout North America, from Florida to Hawaii and Costa Rica to Washington.

Our company has a strong mission ensuring our tools make Brivity the only system that guarantees success in real estate. We are always striving to be better engineers, evaluating ourselves through retrospectives, putting the resulting action items into practice and supporting personal growth by sharing techniques and best practices through lunch-and-learns and group discussions on new technology.

We're growing at a rapid rate and we’re looking to build new technology to scale our business. We're looking for team members who want to build impactful solutions to a really challenging problem: keeping the real estate agent relevant in the home buying/selling process.

The Core team owns several software products built as individual offerings and as a platform solution. These products are built using a services approach, communicating through API calls and message queue technologies. As these systems provide the foundational information about all client data, building and supporting services that are robust at scale is central to our mission.

We are looking for strong coders. While our development is primarily in Ruby on Rails and React, programming expertise in Javascript/Node.js or C# is also appropriate.

ROLE/RESPONSIBILITES:
  • Designing, coding, testing, and supporting reliable, robust inbound lead ingestion and outbound reporting for customers
  • Defining the architecture for continued decomposing existing monolithic, Rails-centric services into a future where multiple services, each with a dedicated focus, can be deployed and scaled independently
  • Responding to pull/merge requests and providing timely feedback to other engineers
  • Participating actively in cross-functional feature requirements gathering, design, and implementation
  • Collaborating with product management on the right units of work to include in each development sprint
  • Representing Engineering to the Implementation Team for discussing and resolving technical issues with a business impact

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS:
  • BA/BS in Computer Science or related technical field, or equivalent experience
  • At least 4+ years of professional software development experience.
  • Development experience utilizing Ruby on Rails desired, but JavaScript or C# will be considered.
  • At least 3+ years building and supporting back-end services with non-trivial scaling needs
  • At least 1+ years of experience in service-oriented architecture for cloud-based services
  • At least 2+ years experience with cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS)

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:
  • Experience building out data integration solutions with business partners
  • Strong knowledge of infrastructure supporting large-scale applications: you haven't just written and supported applications that scale to large volumes of traffic, data, or users, you understand the tradeoffs that make it possible to scale
  • Experience with multiple programming languages - extra bonus for Ruby on Rails and/or JavaScript/Node.js languages.
  • Be resourceful and able to work independently with minimal direction while communicating effectively with the team: self-starter/self-motivated
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
