Apply to this job


  • You are an experienced software engineer. DevOps is your passion, but breadth of knowledge is your strength.
  • You have solid knowledge of AWS platform, and exposure to other cloud platforms (like GCP, Linode, or DigitalOcean).
  • You are inspired by the efficient development workflows made possible with platforms like Heroku, and would not settle for anything less.
  • You value logs and metrics, and are familiar with tools that let you collect and analyze those (from Statsd and Grafana to NewRelic and Librato to Elastic).
  • You know the value that Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment bring to an organization, and have experience building tools that support it.
  • You understand systems security, access control, and credential management. You strike the right balance between secure and efficient.


  • Improve productivity of all Apartment List engineers by giving them a development and deployment experience that is magically friction free and efficient.
  • Automation is the name of the game: you will not do anything manually twice--even if we ask you to. Use the right tool for the job: whether it is Jenkins, Heroku, Docker, Vagrant, Kubernetes, Travis-CI, Heroku, or Elastic Beanstalk--you stay focused on a goal and let the tools support it.
  • Educate the team on best practices of running a scalable micro-services architecture in the Cloud.
  • Write code. Lots of it.

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 $30M in our series B 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.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
