Senior Software Engineer, Front End
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 Senior Front End Software Engineer, you will be responsible for all customer facing web interfaces across mobile and desktop, as well as all client-side components for 2nd Address' core leasing platform. You’ll be working directly with the Product group, customers, and internal teams to develop clean interfaces that are robust, scalable, and easy-to-use. You will take an active role on both design and technical implementation defining how the application looks as well as how it works. You will work closely with the backend team, and we value breadth and flexibility, so you are welcome to write as much server-side code as you like. At 2nd Address Engineering, we believe clean, elegant interfaces are critical to success, both for our customers and ourselves as we create the the on-demand residential housing category.
