We're a marketplace for new types of real estate created by changes in car ownership habits. We help homeowners with extra room in their garage earn income from neighbors who need to store things.

Why join us?
  • We've taken a lean startup approach to validating our model, and are operating with real paying customers pre-product. Our early customers love the service and are our biggest source of new customers.

  • Our team comes from leadership roles at Dropbox and Doordash, having helped grow those businesses through some of their fastest periods.

  • We're fundamentally a software company - not a real estate or logistics company - and believe we can build software that changes the customer experience and pricing structure of the $30B self-storage industry.


Engineering at Sharespace
Engineering team and processes

We're a small engineering team that believes in using the right tool for the job, and in building tool supported workflows to give every engineer leverage and keep our team small and nimble. We think strong engineers can quickly learn new languages and technologies so we bias towards generalists over specialists.

Each engineer has broad responsibility across the stack for the features they own, both in terms of architecture and usability. We look for engineers who are excited about engaging with customer feedback to develop user empathy and take initiative to improve the customer experience.

Prioritization of larger projects takes place across the entire team in a collaborative discussion with the business and customer teams. Engineers cost features and set the milestones and deadlines for the projects they will own.

We use Github to manage code reviews and TravisCI along with a robust suite of tests to deploy to production multiple times a day. We believe shipping is an important feature.

Our current stack uses Java on the backend and React with Typescript on the frontend. We think the benefit of types in large codebases helps prevent technical debt and encourages well thought through abstractions.

Technical Challenges

We're building a real-time auction system that manages the allocation of real world items and real world spaces. This is a hard, messy challenge at the intersection of mechanism design and computer vision.

We're also building a delightful consumer experience that helps homeowners generate extra income and needs to be simple, fast, intuitive, and blend online and offline actions into a trustworthy service.

Projects you might work on
  • Payment systems to process revenue, Auction systems to set dynamic pricing, User facing messaging and scheduling systems to coordinate real world actions, AR experiences to capture 3D models of physical spaces
