Overview
There are over 17,000 estate agent in the UK and they all say they’re the best. My client uses property sales date to measure the agent's performance. So they can tell the homeowner exactly which ones would do the best job of selling their home. In 2018 their client base multiplied by 5 and we’re expecting the same growth again in 2019. Their current focus is scaling up efficiently whilst offering a better service to homeowners and estate agents. As a core member of the team, you will take ownership of existing parts of their platform – this could be as diverse as the home sellers dashboard to the data pipeline processing property data. The platform is not (yet) perfect, so there are lots for you to sink your teeth into. However, the bulk of your day would be spent developing entirely new parts of the platform. You would lead the process from idea generation and goal setting all the way to measuring the Impact of your work. As a result, this role would suit someone entrepreneurial who enjoys taking ownership of a project (rather than just does as they’re told)

About The Tech
The homeowner facing part off the site may appear quite straightforward, but there are lots of complexity hidden away
They have a custom CRM which enables all their interactions with homeowners and estate agents (built with React and uses Plivo/Twilio for telephony) With the increase by 5x in size next year, you could be working on adding to the CRM to enable people to work more efficiently. They have an exciting (and not straightforward) outbound telephony plan that should improve the efficiency of the customer service team substantially – you could lead this project.

They have a comprehensive branch dashboard for their estate agents which include competitor analysis and lead management (including some fun generating PDFs) You may work on adding further features that their estate agents customers request.
They have built a range of tools to help homeowners on their selling journey – including valuing their property, estimation how long the sale will take and the monitoring the performance of their listing, There is a lot more work to be done in this area, such as improving the way we cross-sell ancillaries and giving home sellers more visibility on how their sale is progressing.

So much property data, they digest listing data from all the main UK portals every day and cross-reference it with Land Registry. To leverage their relationship with homeowners and estate agents to enhance the property data even further. You might mine this data to provide housing markets insight, or develop tools to help homeowners sell better.
They use this property data to produce some unique research, they've also used machine learning to predict when someone is going to sell. You could build upon this effort and link it up with a marketing strategy, and we have written and open-sourced our own SASS framework.

Requirements
They use NodeJS (Koa), MySQL, React & jQuery extensively, and as a Senior Developer, you would have a strong technical knowledge across most of these areas. You will be expected to have 5+ years of Javascript development experience.
In addition to this, you're comfortable making architectural decisions and communicating the rationale to other members to the tech and the CTO. Ultimately your career within the company will progress in the direction you choose – either focusing on managing more junior developers or adopting a technical leadership role.
They'd expect that you’re naturally inquisitive and keen to learn new technologies and skills. In return, we’ll ensure you have the opportunity to learn new technologies and skills.

Benefits
  • Very competitive salary based on experience
  • Generous tech budget to buy your perfect set u
  • Opportunity to be a core member of a small but growing tech team in a scale-up company.
  • Stock options that will hopefully one day make a millionaire
  • Flexible hours and remote working.
