Your impact

Over the past couple of years, HousingAnywhere grew exponentially and we are currently with 150 colleagues. We have the ambition to at least double our business in the upcoming years and improved internal tooling is at the cornerstone of that ambition. Our technology and tooling should facilitate us to grow in an efficient way, meaning that the same amount of people should be able to support a much larger business a few years from now.

As a Frontend Software Engineer in HousingAnywhere, you will become part of one of our product teams and work directly with other engineers and product managers towards the specific team mission and goals.

By becoming more efficient and effective we will be able to scale our operations at a much faster pace. On a more human level, we're going to positively reinforce the daily work lives of our colleagues and empower them to grow and to spend their time on those matters that really matter and make an impact.

Besides empowering our colleagues we will also make an active commitment to embedding data privacy and security standards into our internal tooling.

Our stack

Our backend runs on Golang, with PostgreSQL database(s). We run our services inside Docker containers in a Kubernetes cluster, all running in GCP. We use gRPC and messaging queue(s) in addition to HTTP for communication. Our Frontend stack is built on React/TypeScript. We love Git. We are quickly moving towards cross-platform Domain and Event-driven architecture.

Your profile:

  • You're a Javascript expert, and you know how a web application runs in the browser

  • A problem solver. You start from the problems and not the solutions, and you go the extra mile to find innovative and pragmatic solutions to the problems at hand.
  • A pragmatic and quality-driven engineer. You believe in the importance of writing good unit, integration and E2E tests.
  • An advocate of clean and simple solutions. When writing code you take into account who will read your code, and make your intentions clear and explicit for others to work with it.
