Frontend Software Engineer - Rotterdam/Remote

Our Vision  

To help people with housing, anywhere.

Our Mission  

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

Our Core Values  

We Care. We Perform. We Evolve.

Your impact

As an engineer in the Internal Ops team, you will be part of a newly founded team that is focused on improving and automating internal tooling. Over the past couple of years, HousingAnywhere grew exponentially and we are currently with 150 colleagues. We have the ambition to at least double our business in the upcoming years and improved internal tooling is at the cornerstone of that ambition. Our technology and tooling should facilitate us to grow in an efficient way, meaning that the same amount of people should be able to support a much larger business a few years from now.

Our internal teams such as customer support, sales and marketing are leveraging tooling that has been built throughout the years to support them on a daily basis. Much of these processes are eligible to be simplified or automated. This is where we come in. 

By becoming more efficient and effective we will be able to scale our operations at a much faster pace. On a more human level, we’re going to positively reinforce the daily work lives of our colleagues and empower them to grow and to spend their time on those matters that really matter and make an impact.

Besides empowering our colleagues we will also make an active commitment to embedding data privacy and security standards into our internal tooling.

The team

At the moment we are forming the team. The team will consist of six members. Among them, there will be a Product Owner, both frontend and backend engineers and one team lead. 

Our stack

Our backend runs on Golang, with PostgreSQL database(s). We run our services inside Docker containers in a Kubernetes cluster, all running in GCP. We use gRPC and messaging queue(s) in addition to HTTP for communication. Our Frontend stack is built on React/TypeScript. We love Git. We are quickly moving towards cross-platform Domain and Event-driven architecture.

Who we look for:

  • You’re a Javascript expert, and you know how a web application runs in the browser
  • Experience with React, Typescript. Node.js or Go is a strong asset
  • You’re experienced with test automation and you are interested in TDD best practices
  • Experience with online marketplaces, service providers and/or API development would be a great strength
  • You preferably have around 5 years of experience in web development 
  • Who you are:

  • A product-oriented person: you love developing products that help people and you’re driven by the impact you can make.
  • A real team player. You understand your colleagues may have different opinions and you consider them to make our product better. You understand how to challenge ideas, disagree and still commit to team decisions
  • A strategic thinker. You take initiative and are comfortable in interacting with stakeholders to elicit and clarify requirements and to create a plan to deliver your work in a timely manner.
  • A problem solver. You start from the problems and not the solutions, and you go the extra mile to find innovative and pragmatic solutions to the problems at hand.
  • A pragmatic and quality-driven engineer. You believe in the importance of writing good unit, integration and E2E tests.
  • An advocate of clean and simple solutions. When writing code you take into account who will read your code, and make your intentions clear and explicit for others to work with it.
  • A tech enthusiast! You are interested in new technologies and you constantly seek to improve yourself.
  • What about working at HousingAnywhere?

    Our team of colleagues exists out of many ethnicities, religions, countries of origin, sexual orientations, genders and abilities. We welcome everyone. 

    Over the past couple of months, the majority of our staff has worked from home, wherever that is, and we will continue to do so in the future. You are always welcome in our newly built office in the heart of Rotterdam, the most beautiful city of the Netherlands, where you find modern equipment, meet your colleagues in person, and enjoy a stunning view of the city.

    The team culture is very open and we’re all motivated by our vision to help people with housing, anywhere. This is what drives us every day and we invite you to do the same.
