Software Engineer, Platform Development

San Francisco
2nd Address is on a mission to change the way people find a temporary home in a new city. We want to make booking a furnished property as easy as booking a hotel. From search to signing the lease, and even on move out day, we are committed throughout the entire rental process. We are here because we believe business travel is only partly about business. With the power of hospitality and technology,  we will focus on each moment of the business traveler experience and help make their second address a home. Because, if you live better, you can work better.
Our revolutionary product is driving explosive growth and we are backed by top tier VCs (Foundation Capital, Battery Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners and Google Ventures). Our leadership team is obsessed with enabling 2nd Address to achieve its massive potential and building a strong, values-based culture that is visionary, performance-oriented, collaborative, and customer-centric. Through our hard work and passion, we believe we can create a new industry of on-demand housing.
As a Software Engineer, your biggest impact will be as you take the initiative or contribute in building many micro-services as part of the back-end platform. We believe that our next generation platform is essential to accelerating the successes of the business and ensuring the quality and stability necessary to expand the on-demand residential housing category. You will have full creativity in finding solutions for the challenges the platform team is facing, as well as being responsible for balancing urgent actions and long-term excellence. You'll collaborate with engineering, product and other business stakeholders to scope and design products correctly.
