Altos Research is the premier resource for real-time real estate data. We offer weekly market statistics, analysis and reporting for over 90% of the counties and 98% of the zip codes in the U.S., helping real estate investors, financial institutions, realtors and their clients make better-informed decisions.
Founded in 2006, Altos is led by CEO Mike Simonsen, a real estate market expert whose insights are regularly cited in national media such as Forbes, New York Times, Bloomberg BusinessWeek and the Wall Street Journal.
We’re building the next generation of real estate data products that fuel the housing market and empower home buyers and sellers, and we’re looking for people to help us develop them.
• Proficiency in web design best practices, usability techniques, and the technical capabilities and limitations of the web
• Proven knowledge of cutting-edge current and emerging web technologies, including:
o HTML 5
o CSS 3
o AWS and Git
o Twitter Bootstrap
o Mobile platforms
• Proficiency in mobile first design practices and methodology
• Experience with, and critical consideration of, responsive design principles
• Experience working with Agile or SCRUM development
• Real products, real data, real customers. You’ll get all the benefits of working at a start-up – flexibility, low bureaucracy, room for creativity, financial upside – knowing that there’s established, recurring revenue and nearly a decade of success behind the company.
• Ownership. You’ll play a major role in defining and developing our products and own much of the development process from start to finish, with support from your colleagues.
• Autonomy. We’re looking for people who want to build things, who can take a little direction and create amazing products. And as an independently-funded company, we’re not beholden to VCs… we only have to answer to our customers and ourselves.
• Work/life balance. Working at a start-up doesn’t have to be a 24/7 proposition. We value efficiency over long hours. We forgo unnecessary meetings and late-night development sessions in favor of spending time with our friends and families.
