Engineering Manager, Search & Discovery

In San Francisco, California

Apartment List is hiring an Engineering Manager for our Search & Discovery team to help us solve one of the biggest problems that exists today. We spend 2/3 of our time in our homes, and apartment hunting can be a long and weary process. But with Apartment List, it doesn’t have to be! Do you dream of making an impact on people’s lives by bringing amazing products to life? Here is your opportunity. The Search & Discovery team's charter is to surface the best, personalized listings for a renter. Renting is a stressful process. During the 2-4 weeks that a typical renter is looking for a new home, they go online every day to look for more options and evaluate their choices. We won't rest until every day they come back to Apartment List, and not anywhere else. This team owns the core renter experience. "We do the work so you don't have to", backed by modern search technology, and present a best-in-class UI.

About Us

On the surface, building a great renter experience might not sound hard, but it is. Think about all the things that have to be right: gathering detailed data from millions of apartments of all types; matching those apartments with the millions of renters searching; and communicating with landlords when those renters decide they’ve found their perfect next home.

Getting this right is more important now than ever before. Today there are 100 million renters in the US, more than there have ever been and growing.

Our mission is simple, we want renters to be able to find a great home and we want that process to be simple and delightful. In one word, we want their experience and apartment search to be extraordinary.

The extraordinary experience we are building is loved by renters and landlords. In fact, four million Renters used Apartment List last month, 75% of them on mobile. Each month more and more renters are signing their lease thanks to Apartment List.

We recently just raised $50M in our series C to accelerate our growth - think you’re up to the challenge? Check out the team and learn more about us. If you’re game, apply now.
