At Neighborhoods.com Engineering, we employ a very flat organization. We value people who are capable of owning all aspects of the product and feature life cycles. Instead of middle management, every engineer has a direct relationship with their product’s stakeholders and our Project Management Organization.

We use Lightweight Decision Records and peer review to effect change in how we build and ship software, what technologies we use, our processes, and how we organize. Any member of the organization can effect change using this system.

We strongly believe that The Best Solution can sprout from anywhere.

  • Experience working with services and asynchronous behaviors
  • Experience with data types and software patterns
  • Bachelor's Degree, vocational training, or equivalent work experience
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills

What would you be doing?

  • Developing new features and technical designs for the product that you own
  • Maintaining and improving the products you own
  • Collaborating with designers, engineers, and product stakeholders to deliver technical solutions to complex problems
  • Creating rich, interactive user-experiences with modern technologies with a focus on performance and maintainability
  • Participating in code reviews, both of your code and of other team members

An Insider's view of Neighborhoods.com

How does your team reward individual success?

Each manager has a keen eye not only for who is maintaining high levels of productivity, but also for who is willing to assist other members of the team who may be overwhelmed with tasks or a busy schedule. Outstanding work is almost always recognized via Cheers on TinyPulse, with frequent social functions, or even with a simple "thank you."

Neil

Neighborhood Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our company culture always encourages cross-team collaboration. On any given day, I could be chatting with Sales about how our agents interact with the site or collaborating with a software engineer about how to develop the best performance indicators for our new service.

Frankie
