About Orchard

Orchard is radically simplifying the way people buy and sell their homes. For the average American, the home purchase and sale process takes months, creates anxiety, and is filled with uncertainty and hassle. Orchard has reimagined the end-to-end experience of buying and selling, from innovative home search tools to find the perfect home to the ability to buy a new home before selling your current one. Orchard customers manage the entire experience through a personalized online dashboard, while also getting the support of best-in-class Orchard real estate agents. 

Headquartered in New York City and with offices throughout Texas, Colorado, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia, Orchard has over 700 employees and growing. We've recently raised $100 million in Series D funding at a valuation over $1 billion and have financing from top-tier investors including Revolution, Firstmark, Accomplice, Navitas and Juxtapose. Our investors have also backed the likes of Pinterest, AirBnb, Shopify and Sweetgreen. We're proud to be recognized by Glassdoor, Inc. Magazine, Fast Company and Forbes on their lists of best places to work.

About the Role and Team

This is an exciting opportunity to join a high-growth team and play an instrumental role in making the home buying and selling experience frictionless for our customers.

Orchard’s engineering culture is centered around product empathy and autonomous teams with high feature ownership. Engineers take ownership of feature development end to end. This means we partner with Product Managers and Designers to solve ambiguous business problems and have a high degree of collaborative input before writing code. We strive to keep common infrastructure and dependencies simple (or only as complex as necessary), to keep the coordination costs of infrastructure deployments low, and support lean & nimble product engineering teams. 

We’re looking for engineers that are passionate about building delightful customer experiences for both web and mobile, design scalable architecture for our API platform & internal tools, and orchestrate data processing across different data sources. 

We are interested in all qualified candidates who are eligible to work in the United States. However, we are not able to sponsor visas at this time.

This is a full-time role based out of our New York City office that will start during the summer of 2022.

What You’ll Do Here

  • Build and continuously deploy both internal tools and consumer-facing products.
  • Scale web services to support consumer web-scale traffic volume
  • Design reliable & secure systems which our customers can trust for managing sensitive data
  • Develop business workflow features supporting user roles ranging from home advisors to title agents, lenders and even construction teams
  • Work with the following technologies: Python3, TypeScript, Angular, PostgreSQL, Kafka, Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, Airflow

We’d Love to Hear From You if You Have

  • Experience with web stack languages (including Python/Ruby/JavaScript/Java/C#) preferred; openness to learning and working in Python required
  • Working knowledge of building web applications using single page technologies and service-oriented architecture
  • Prior internship experience working with a team to plan, prioritize, build, and deploy code
  • Currently have, or are in the process of attaining, BS or MS in Computer Science or related field
  • A results-oriented attitude with attention to detail: we expect engineers to own projects from planning to production deployment (and production operations!)
  • Low ego with appetite for feedback: we value humility and sharing + receiving feedback for growth and continuous improvement
  • Business empathy & clear communication: we work with product, design & business stakeholders collaboratively from early in the design process. We look for engineers to frame technical problems in the context of business value and be able to communicate with cross-functional teams
  • Prioritization & value orientation: we operate with agile principles and balance long-term planning with re-evaluating priorities based on new data and assumptions
  • Problem solving & ownership: we look for a willingness to take on problems in a growing organization where there's not yet a defined solution

An Insider's view of Orchard

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Each home is unique and comes with its own challenges and surprises. Even though our team has been through hundreds of transactions, we're always learning, growing, and improving our process with each home we acquire. On the engineering side, that means never being satisfied and constantly pushing ourselves to iterate quickly and deliver quality.

How does the company support your career growth?

Culturally, Orchard encourages a growth mindset, from early career employees to senior executives. Every employee is offered an incredible amount of learning opportunities – both formally and on the job -- to hone existing skills and gain new ones. This not only makes employees feel valued but is critical for teams to perform at the highest level.

What is your vision for the company?

We're looking to make buying and selling a home as easy as trading in a car. We believe that through technology, human-centered design, and exceptional operations we can remove the friction from the biggest financial transaction of our customers' lives. As a team, we get to make real progress towards achieving this vision every day.

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of Orchard's core values is "Create Raving Fans" and that means there is no task that is too big or too small for any one employee so long as we're working to deliver the best customer experience possible. Everybody is collaborating to ensure our customers have a seamless home buying and selling experience, and ego is left at the door.
