Senior Software Engineer, Zillow Offers Platform Team

About the teamEvery month, tens of millions of homeowners come to Zillow to answer one important question: How much is my home worth? Today we answer this question through a suite of products, the cornerstone being the Zestimate. But many homeowners want more than just a single number--they want the details. The challenge is not to drown them in a sea of data, but rather to navigate them through it. And our team 's job is to do just that.

Our mission is to provide the most comprehensive and comprehensible data to homeowners and to empower them to make informed decisions about the future of their largest investment, their home. We build the user experience and back-end of industry-leading products to help homeowners understand the current value of their home and sell it if selling is the right decision for them. We partner with our Data Science teams to ensure that the latest advancements in machine learning, computer vision, and personalization are deeply integrated into these tools for homeowners. Come be the newest member of our team!
