At Compass, we envision a world where the experience of selling or buying a home is simple and pleasant for everyone. Founded in 2012, Compass provides an end-to-end platform that empowers residential real estate agents to deliver exceptional service to their seller and buyer clients, all in service of our mission to help everyone find their place in the world.

The Mobile Productivity Apps Team is a cross-functional group focused on creating unique product solutions in support of our efforts to help everyone find their place in the world. We are responsible for rebuilding the traditional home buying experience and our wide scope of ownership includes essential Compass tools, such as Collections, Market Watch, Notifications, Tours, Open House, Marketing Center, etc. We are the team that builds the pipeline that guides a customer from their initial home search all the way through to the listing they consider "the one". This pipeline includes hundreds of interactions, from minor nudges encouraging agents and clients to connect, to key events like attending a live-streamed tour of a home. Your role would be to lead this pipeline’s technical architecture, with a focus on the iOS platform.
