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.


Marketing & Product

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.
