Principal Software Engineer
The home search starts online, but the real estate industry is often optimized for in-person, one-on-one service. That's a fantastic experience once you connect with the right professional, but finding the right fit isn't always a smooth process. Opcity built a nationwide real-time data and technology platform combining cutting edge deep learning, business analytics and human intuition with the latest web, mobile and digital telephony technologies to enable our team of professionals, and thousands of real estate agents and brokers, to make sure we connect every home buyer with the right agent at the right time so more time is spent finding a home and less time finding the perfect agent.
ABOUT THE TEAM

If you're seeking to join a team spanning a diverse skill set across scalable distributed systems, advanced predictive analytics and machine learning, bleeding-edge data visualization and gamification, and high-engagement customer experiences across both web and mobile, then this job is for you. Contact us if you care about working on big problems that help tens of thousands of consumers and real estate professionals across the US, or if you love being in an engineering-driven culture that uses state-of-the-art tools to deliver critical high-scale systems.
