Role Description

Clever Real Estate is seeking a Senior Frontend Engineer to join our team.

We're particularly interested in candidates who show depth in either product design or application architecture.

The day-to-day work We're currently rebuilding our legacy WordPress site in Gatsby (a React framework static site generation). We deploy our Gatsby pages to S3 and use CloudFront to selectively route traffic to the new or legacy pages, based on what's been rebuilt. We'd like to accelerate our transition to a robust CI/CD pipeline that runs a comprehensive set of tests on every commit. We're very excited about candidates with DevOps or application architecture experience who could help us improve our build pipeline.

As we rebuild the legacy site, we're aiming to increase conversion rates by using well-designed components that can be reused throughout the site. To that end, we're very excited about candidates with experience in UI/UX design who can draw on design principles to level up how we build and use our component library.

Technologies / skills that could be helpful in this role

  • React (most important). Bonus points if you've worked with Gatsby or GraphQL
  • UI / UX design experience
  • DevOps knowledge (we're on AWS and make heavy use of CloudFront, Route 53, and S3. We plan to use CircleCI for CI/CD)
  • Testing React applications

About Clever Real Estate

We help folks save money on real estate commissions while connecting them with the best real estate agents in their area.

Our concierge team of licensed real estate experts answers customers' questions, offer advice, and learn exactly what they're looking for in an agent. We decide which agents to recommend based on customers' specific goals and needs. They get to meet each agent and decide which one they'd like to work with. They can also request to be introduced to more agents if they don't feel they've found a fit.

In all cases, our service is completely free for customers. We make money by taking a percentage of the commission made by the real estate agent. Agents happily pay this in exchange for the consistent deal-flow that we send their way.

Since our inception in 2017 we've helped homeowners buy and sell over a billion dollars in real estate, while saving over $25,000,000 in real estate fees.

We've built a product that helps consumers save thousands, while providing a consistent source of business for great agents.

Company Culture

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.


Here's an excerpt from our Blameless Post-Mortem template that is particularly illustrative of our team culture:

Remember: We're trying to prepare for a future where we're as humanly fallible as we are today. It's not productive for us to come out of this meeting with a decision tobe less stupidorbe more careful". Rather, we should try to identify fool-proof countermeasures that we can use to avoid issues in the future. This may involve an automated system or a documented process that captures organizational learning.

We should explicitly disallow the phrases would have and could have. It's much more productive to think about why we chose a course of action and what we'll do in the future to improve our incident prevention and response practices.

Finally, remember that this meeting is not about naming, blaming, and shaming others. It's about improving ourselves as a team."
