Our business is focused on making real estate more valuable. But for us, it’s more than that. It’s people first, community always. It’s a life-filled career, not just a career-filled life. It’s doing good work, with good humans, and making a difference. It’s excellence in all its forms. Ultimately, we create great places to work, live, and grow. We do that by focusing on leaving people – and places – better than we found them.


Whew! Still with us? Cool. Let’s talk about where you’d fit in:

As a Data Engineer, you’re an artist. You will bring the business needs to life through beautifully crafted and well-thought-out solutions. You are a carpenter, building the scaffolding of the data workflows. You are a geek, always tinkering and making “cool” things. Above all, you are an engineer with the detail and precision often attributed to that title. You are an amazing, well-rounded individual and not “just a coder” who wants to be in a room being fed Mountain Dew and Twinkies under the door (not that we have anything against Mountain Dew or Twinkies, and we’d at least fully open the door to bring them to you). If this sounds like you and you want to be with amazing people, then we are looking for you.

Our culture and values matter to us. A lot. We’re definitely not serious but we take this stuff seriously, if you get what we mean. We want a place that is an ego-free zone. A place where good people do good things together and for the right reasons. It shouldn’t be rocket science in workplaces, but for some reason it still is? We’re absolutely determined to be different, and we think we’re doing a pretty good job at it. We have a CEO who makes fun of himself, and who will encourage you to tell him when he is wrong. In fact, he needs people to – we all do. Supportive challenge is good, it’s how we get better. We like getting better. We also love diversity, of all kinds. We need people who look, sound, speak, love, and exist differently from one another. This isn’t at the end of this paragraph because it’s an afterthought. It’s SO important to us we want it to stand out.


Right. On to the technical stuff that we know matters to you. We offer competitive pay that is commensurate with the market and relevant experience, and a full slate of benefits that even includes things like paid parental leave.


If any of this sounds interesting, then maybe we are a fit. Life is too short to work with people you don’t like. So whatever you do, don’t make that mistake.
