We have teams in Argentina and the USA, and we are expanding them to Colombia and Canada.

About the role

  • You will work mostly on performance and security related features and in back-end tooling for the rest of the team.
  • We are open to hiring you from the following locations: Argentina, Colombia, Canada and USA.

A typical day as a Back-end engineer at Glide can include the following:

  • Developing internal back-end tools and features in Python (Flask, SQLAlchemy, Pytest). Our stack is completed with PostgreSQL, Redis and also we have a few microservices in JavaScript and Java.
  • Maintaining and improving our internal libraries. Worth to mention we use a super performant in-house developed ORM and a framework we use to build step-by-step wizards.
  • Remotely collaborating via Slack, Notion, Zoom.
  • Reviewing PRs, making releases to production on a daily basis.
  • Helping customer support, identifying and fixing bugs coming through them, making sure cases are resolved for customers. Everyone at Glide helps to support our customers.

About Us

The average real estate transaction includes dozens of siloed technology systems, hundreds of calls, emails and texts, and thousands of pages of documents – not to mention more fees than you will pay for anything else in your life.

Why have we come to expect that it’s reasonable for such a huge and important transaction in one of the largest industries feel like a complete mess? We're here to fix it with intelligent software that takes you through each milestone using a step-by-step, guided expert system and is already being used to conduct over $75 billion in residential real estate transactions a year – and growing fast.

We’re a well funded startup with both consumer-facing and B2B-facing elements. We are revenue generating, late-seed stage on track to raise a Series A in early 2021.
