Engineering at Luxury Presence

Engineering team and processes

We are a flat organization putting emphasis on ownership on the product-level. For day to day and week to week management we operate on 2 week sprints using a standard scrumboard. It's important to us that everyone is able to weigh in on technical decisions for the products he/she is working on, often seeing a project through from design to release to users. All work is code-reviewed on Github and merged to staging where CI/CD processes take over. Everyone on the team works remote on Fridays!

Technical Challenges

1) Scaling our platform from hundreds to tens of thousands of users over the next 12 months. 2) Creating a component based website builder for the real estate sector. 3) Creating the next generation of real estate home search tools. 4) Building out powerful publishing, property management, and marketing/follow-up automation features.

Projects you might work on
  • We are building a website/page builder from the ground up - giving users the ability to easily create beautiful websites. There are multiple components and challenges, including the transformation and serialization of intermediate formats to html/css, modelling all website interactions, and the eventual hosting of static content behind a cdn. On the frontend, we are going above and beyond to create a delightful, interactive experience, taking all the user inputs required and presenting the user with their work in progress.

  • One of our key product offerings is our property search, involving syncing property data with 3rd party vendors and indexing in elasticsearch. Real Estate agents can take advantage of these features to maintain dynamic data on their websites and to provide property-search features.

  • Marketing tools and lead management are important to our users. As we prepare to scale, we'll need to examine our data warehousing options and how to best provide reporting and automation to real-estate agents.

Working at Luxury Presence

The engineering team strongly values learning. We want to hear about your side projects or that blog post you read! This spills over in to our attitude towards how we build the platform and ultimately make technical decisions. For example, we use React with Apollo/GraphQL because we saw an opportunity to better do manage state with our app with how we were already building API endpoints in Node. In our broader company culture, we want everyone to participate in the company vision and to dream big. Obsess over customers. Think like an owner.
