The Company

Orchard is transforming the way people buy and sell their homes, simplifying it to be fair and true to market, straightforward & easy. The U.S. has $1.5 trillion worth of home transactions each year, generating over $120 billion of fees in a process that has changed little in decades. For the average American, the home purchase and sale process takes months, creates anxiety and is filled with uncertainty and hassle.

Orchard offers a modern alternative, making one of life's biggest decisions -- the sale and purchase of a home –stress free, fair and simple.

We are headquartered in New York City, have 200+ employees and have grown 10x year over year. In addition to this incredible growth, we’re proud to have been recognized by Inc. Magazine as a Best Workplace of 2020 while hold a 4.9 Glassdoor rating!

Team and Responsibilities

This is an exciting opportunity to join a high-growth team at the ground floor, 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.

In this role you will

  • 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

Professional Qualifications

  • 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

Personal Qualifications

  • Results-oriented 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

How does your team reward individual success?

We recognize employees in a variety of ways on a regular basis. At Orchard feedback is a gift and every employee truly lives out our company values. Our team makes a point to shout out individual successes in our #shoutouts channel in Slack and every month during Town Hall. Not an ounce of hard work goes unnoticed!

Leah

Executive Assistant

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.

Toni

Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?

Curiosity, scrappiness, and a sense of urgency. We move quickly to accomplish our goals, but leave time and space to think outside the box. All of our functional areas work together to build an exceptional brand, product, and customer experience, so communication and collaboration are key skills as well.

Steph

Marketing

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.

Phil

Growth & CX

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

At Orchard, our mission is to provide the most stress-free, fair and simple way to buy a home. The Investments team that I lead contributes to this mission by providing a fair market value estimation for our customers’ homes. Our approach integrates human judgement alongside an internal valuation algorithm to price every home.
