Job Description

Company Overview

Fundrise is the first investment platform to create a simple, low-cost way for anyone to unlock real estate’s historically consistent and exceptional returns. Our technology and world-class real estate private equity management provide access to a level of investment performance that only the wealthiest investors have enjoyed — until now.

We're proud to be a Washington Post 2018 "Top Workplace". We exclusively hire creative, collaborative, and results-driven people with a penchant for bold ideas and an obsession with solving problems.

Job Summary

We’re seeking a talented, passionate software engineer with front-end expertise to help us realize our vision of a world-class online investing experience. You will work on a daily basis with the rest of the engineering team and other teams across the business to improve existing features on the website and implement new ones, constantly iterating and improving them along the way.

Our engineering team is small, so you will have a chance to have a significant and immediate impact on our growing user base and the overall success of our business. This means you'll have ownership over your work from approach through development to validating its performance in a production environment.

Ideally, you are:

  • Meticulous. You're constantly and thoroughly testing your own and your teammates’ code. You test edge cases across operating systems, browsers, and devices - documenting and/or resolving issues along the way. A little paranoia is good.
  • Organized. You judiciously maintain and organize DRY code. You constantly look for opportunities to improve the quality of your code to better prepare the team for future work. 
  • Pragmatic. You think critically about the task at hand and are constantly discussing and evaluating the trade-offs in different approaches - recognizing there are different ways to solve a problem.
  • Curious. You are naturally curious about things you don't understand and actively look for opportunities to grow and learn from those around you.
