Our Mission:

Rent Easy, Live Free.

We are empowering people to live wherever and however they choose. To find comfort and peace of mind on the other side of the world or the other side of town. All while feeling confident and totally at ease, whatever their adventure might involve. We are doing it by creating a new standard of renting. Safe. Harmonious. More options. Less hassle. With the help of our trusted networks of landlords and partners.

The team:

The product development team at HousingAnywhere is organised in Product Engineering, Platform Engineering and Data Science and Engineering. The Cloud Infrastructure team is part of the Platform Engineering team. The mission of the Platform Engineering teams is to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the Product Engineering teams. The Cloud Infrastructure team contributes to this mission by providing a secure, scalable and reliable infrastructure to support the product needs. The cloud infrastructure team does so by empowering the product teams to build and manage their workloads via an easy-to-use internal developer platform.

Our stack:

At the Backend we mostly use Go, Postgres and Redis. At the Frontend we use React, Typescript, NodeJs.

Our infrastructure runs on GCP, and are heavy users of Kubernetes.

Our Architecture is a distributed architecture with several “Modular Monoliths”.

We practise DevOps, Continuous Engineering, Domain Driven Design and Contract Driven Development.

Your role and Impact:

You will contribute to the evolution and maintenance of various infrastructure systems and components. You will support the systems and services owned by your team and strive to improve the developer experience for these.

You will be expected to lead initiatives and development efforts on developer tooling and platforms. You will build golden paths and self-serve APIs that empower the product teams to fully own the operations of their services.

You contribute to the growth of HousingAnywhere by reducing complexity that the product teams have to deal with and empower them to own and operate their services with ease. You enable them to deliver value and innovation fast by reducing friction between product and platform concerns and letting them focus on the evolution of the product.

Who we look for:

The type of profile that could excel in the role typically has around 5 years of relevant experience in managing infrastructure for complex distributed systems at scale. 3 years of previous experience with cloud infrastructure (AWS, GCP, Azure) is desirable. We use GCP so we expect a willingness to learn it if it isn’t the Cloud provider in your toolbelt.

Our systems are Linux based, so experience working with Linux based systems is a must. We use Go, Python and JavaScript. Knowledge of these languages is not needed on a daily basis for the role, but you may need to learn.
