For the first time ever, we are launching an engineering office in Taipei!
RentHop and RealtyHop are two very rapidly growing real estate platforms in the US. We serve over 1 million unique visitors each month looking to buy, rent, sell, or lease their residential properties. Our paying customers include the full spectrum of real estate entities, from very large management firms down to individual small landlords with 1 unit.
As a data engineer, you will work to integrate our platform with dozens of API and 3rd party data feeds. You will work with our front-end engineering team and our content marketing team to explore new product and research possibilities. The database architecture, server framework, content hosting, and 3rd party data integrations are all challenging components that must work together seamlessly.
Transferring to the New York office is also possible in future years, but for the majority of 2021, must be full-time in Taipei. Work hours will be local time in Taiwan.
Comfortable communicating in English during work.
Experience warehousing or analyzing open data sources and APIs
Python or PHP proficiency (either is ok)

The two founders graduated from MIT and Wharton, and attended graduate school at Harvard Business School and Princeton. We launched in the Summer 2009 Y Combinator class and have remained bootstrapped and profitable ever since.
