Building a safe, efficient and global rental marketplace for anyone looking for or renting out a place.
Our Core Values
We Care. We Perform. We Evolve.
As a Lead for the Data Engineering and Data Science team, you will be at the center of the action. The team has been designed to facilitate the collection, transformation, and exploration of all of HousingAnywhere's data in a way that we can improve our product, make better decisions, and accelerate our growth. While working in close collaboration with engineering, the team sits outside of the regular product development to allow for more flexibility and independence in shaping the company's vision around data.
The Team Lead will be given the opportunity to build upon the foundations built so far and take leadership in developing it further, both technically as well as in terms of internal dynamics and strategic goals. The ideal candidate shall be a self-starter with an entrepreneurial, hands-on approach to work and deliverables.
At HousingAnywhere, our data warehouse is powered by Snowflake. Our ETL pipelines are built using Stitch, dbt and Airflow. We are using Google Cloud Platform where we have deployed several Machine Learning models in production via Docker containers running on a Kubernetes cluster which are fully integrated with HousingAnywhere's marketplace. Our models are built using a variety of libraries such as Tensorflow, scikit-learn, XGBoost and LightGBM.
