Full Time / San Francisco, CA
Technical Lead /Manager – Full-stack Web Team
Why work for Trulia?
Engineering gets respect.
We use the phrase "we're a tech company that does Real Estate" to emphasize how important engineering is to the company. Engineering is the department that drives our apps, tools, data, and interfaces forward. This attitude comes not only from the Engineers, but from our CEO and other top management. They believe in us.
Awesome problems to solve.
The housing market provides a fantastic blend of problems. We need creative people to help us combine the data about every address in America with the soft side of helping people find a home that makes them feel safe, happy, and comfortable.
Stability is wonderful.
We're that rare company that holds the culture of its startup roots, while blending in the sanity of a regular work schedule with an emphasis on work/life/family balance. It’s like this because we worked hard to make it this way.
What you’ll work on:
What you'll work with:
Our base web stack is LAMP, but that rides on top of Solr/Lucene, Hadoop, Memcache, Python, Couchbase, Open Street Maps, and more. On the client-side, we use jQuery for its simplicity, and JS libraries like d3.js, Raphael.js, and Google’s JS Maps API to make awesome products. We're learning OOCSS and are folding SASS into our workflow as well. We use Git, and are nurturing a code review culture. If there's something that's a good idea for the team, we'll do our best to implement it.
How we work:
The engineering team is about one hundred people. We break into small teams of 2-4 to focus on specific projects, working closely with product managers and designers when appropriate. We release weekly, but new features are always under development and often span releases. Our local and remote QA teams write automated tests, and do hand testing of our products, working with us to ensure that only high quality code gets to production. Organizationally, we're pretty flat, though you'll have a mentor with whom you'll have weekly 1-on-1 meetings, to review code, exchange ideas, and ensure we're doing everything we can for you to thrive in your role.
