Senior Frontend Engineer - Customer Platform (Modus)

About Modus

Modus is creating the world’s most simple, modernized real estate closing experience available to everyone. As part of Compass' vision to build the first end-to-end real estate platform, Modus' closing experience brings together agents, buyers, sellers and lenders with technology to streamline and empower their transactions.

About the Customer Platform Team

We want to give agents and clients new ways to manage their team and communicate with the closing team and improve collaboration.

There are many steps in the closing process, and we want to increase transparency to make sure each person has the information they need to understand where they are in the process. 

We are creating the most intuitive platform we can. Everything a client needs to do to close should be available within the platform with minimal guidance from the Modus support team.

As a Senior Frontend Engineer your responsibilities will be twofold, working on both feature development and the overall frontend architecture and supporting infrastructure. To provide the best experience for all real estate agents you will work closely with counterparts in Product and UX on new features and improvements to existing features.

You will also collaborate with your engineering peers on the technical strategy we need to support our current and future aspirations and ensure a reliable and delightful experience for our customers.

  • Work closely with the design and product team to ensure delivery of best-in-class user experiences and features
  • Be hands-on while mentoring junior members of the team by way of code-reviews, pair programming exercises and continuous feedback

You're a Good Fit if You:

  • Can continually push the team to strive for higher standards on the frontend
  • Have 5+ years of experience with modern JavaScript (ES2016+)
  • Have experience with modern frameworks like React, Angular, Vue, or Ember, state management libraries like Redux or MobX, and modern bundlers like Webpack, Rollup, or Parcel
