Senior Full Stack Engineer

Providence, RI
Engineering – Frontend
Full-time
Zumper is the largest real estate startup tackling a problem that affects over 100 million renters across the US and Canada. We believe that renters shouldn't engage with technology only to search for their next home or apartment rental. We believe that you should be able to walk into an open house or appointment, pull out your phone, and make a binding application and offer for that unit right there. This is how the next generation of the rental market will function, and Zumper — with a unique twinned B2B and Consumer approach — is leading the way.

We are looking for a Senior Full Stack Developer to write the code that underpins every single company initiative, critical to every new product, and have a massive impact on technology choices and product direction. You'll write the core services and APIs used across multiple platforms and two major brands (Zumper and Padmapper), and help craft the next generation of apartment finding technology!
