Your Responsibilities

HousingAnywhere.com is the global booking platform for mid-term rental accommodation. Being a peer-to-peer marketplace, we create an experience that satisfies both sides of the rental accommodation market and creates a direct connection between tenants and landlords. HousingAnywhere.com is active in 100 countries and 400+ cities. We have partnered with 180+ universities worldwide and currently target the international student market while we are expanding to other audiences as well.

In 2018, we have been honored by being the fastest growing propTech company in the Netherlands as part of the Technology Fast 50 ranking of Deloitte.

Your goal would be to provide our users with a formidable experience when looking for a place to live. At the same time, you would be dealing with the interfaces that we provide to the advertisers who are offering their room. Eventually, we need to provide high-quality matching and drive trust between the marketplace participants. We think about these challenges every day, and we would like to invite you to think along and build a world-class product.

Our Stack

Our client-side app is built using technologies and tools like React, Redux, SASS/CSS-in-JS, TypeScript and Webpack. Our back-end is powered by Go (Golang) backed by a Postgres database and we’re moving to a service oriented architecture (microservices). The server components are hosted on a Google Cloud architecture that allows easy scaling. We've been using React, GraphQL and Golang in production environments since the early days.

Our Team

We're a team of 30 people (product Lead, product owners, front-end engineers, back-end engineers, QA engineers and UX/UI designers) passionate about what we do. To scale up, we are looking for experienced full stack engineers who have proven work experience in solving complex problems in the related domain. Foremost, we need seasoned Javascript developers who have experience with React (or a similar framework) and Go, Node (or other back-end languages) who have the capabilities to help us evolve and improve platform. You will solve complex challenges with the engineering team!
