Series A

We help folks sell their homes for a lower commission than usual by partnering with thousands of real estate agents nationwide. Agents are willing to work for a discount because we're filling up their idle time. They view the discount as marketing spend, and they only pay us when deals close.

Active Roles
Why join us?
  • We are experiencing rapid growth. Revenue is consistently growing by 35% month-over-month.

  • Our internal tools have tripled the volume of leads that each salesperson can handle per week. Backend engineers will play a large role in developing these tools.

  • Our website, which was built in WordPress and we're migrating to React/Gatsby, has a lot of low-hanging fruit that will help us increase conversion rates and grow the business even more.

  • We have been profitable for most of the company's life. After a stint of investing in growth, we are rapidly approaching profitability again.

Engineering at Clever Real Estate
Engineering team and processes

We follow a scrum(ish) process with one week sprints. We use GitHub w/ PRs for version control, though our code reviews are often a quick sanity-check, rather than close inspections.

We're honest with ourselves about which products can break and which cannot. We regularly push experimental code for our internal sales tooling, for example. This lets us get feedback extremely quickly and ensure we're not wasting our time barking up the wrong tree. Changes to our website, on the other hand, undergo thorough QA before release.

Soon, all of our infrastructure (which lives on AWS) will be declaratively described with Terraform. That way, we'll be able to check Terraform code into version control and know exactly what our infrastructure looked like at a particular point in time.

Technical Challenges

We've built (and are continuing to refine) an agent recommendation system that suggests which real estate agents a person should work with. This is currently an internal tool used by our sales team, but we're working towards making it an autonomous tool.

Projects you might work on
  • We built an agent recommendation engine that suggests which real estate agents a customer should be matched with. (It's a work in progress, and we could use your help to speed up its development!)

  • We built an update system that automatically reaches out to agents in our network and collects information on how deals are going so far. This allows our small customer success team to manage many deals efficiently and provide a peak customer experience.

  • We're shifting to Terraform as a way of describing our infrastructure as code. This will allow us to check in these declarative descriptions of our infra into version control.

Tech stack

Working at Clever Real Estate

We believe in shipping code frequently and measuring outcomes. We take a validated-learning approach to writing code.

We value having a bias towards action and a drive for documenting your work.

We love pair programming for sharing context, and we regularly invoke swarming — or, flash collaboration — to unblock each other. We believe that the improvement of daily work is work, and it should be at the forefront of our minds all of the time.
