About PURE

PURE is the fastest-growing profitable residential property management company in the US. We acquire hyperlocal property management companies and invest in their people, processes, and technology to scale them into market leaders. Founded in 2020, we manage more than 8,000 properties across the U.S.

We’re looking for an awesome people leader to scale our engineering team as we build an industry-transforming and data-centered platform for property managers. If this sounds like you, read on!

What you’ll do

  • Lead and mentor people: We need an experienced and passionate leader of people. You should love building teams, coaching engineers, and helping people grow. Experience with remote teams and a willingness to get up early to work with our Europe-based contract team are big pluses.

  • Listen to and build for our users: We’re building a very user-centered product and our first users work for the company already. You’ll work as part of the technical leadership to set technical strategy and ensure we’re delivering on our vision.

  • Engineer complex web applications: Property managers have a lot going on. Their job covers pretty much anything that a human can do with a building. That means our software is also complex. You’ll work closely with our technical team to design software to make their jobs easier and unlock new opportunities that come from interconnected data.

  • Drive technical delivery: You will be responsible for technical delivery of our software. You should be comfortable driving this effort and regularly communicating progress to senior stakeholders.

  • Bring the data to life: Data is at the core of what we do. It enables our customers to work faster and smarter and to do more for their customers. Empowering our users with data requires a combination of creative and analytical thinking which is a key part of this role and of our success as a company.

What you’ve done

  • People management: You’ve done a lot of this, including for offshore and remote teams.

  • Complex architectures: You’ve designed, implemented, and maintained platforms, engines, or frameworks that others have consumed. You’ve delivered APIs consumed by modern web applications, and you understand the complexities and nuances of microservices and databases.

  • Cloud Experience: you have deep experience deploying apps and services to the cloud (AWS or otherwise), and maintaining and evolving them.

  • Data Visualization: You've built interactive and engaging data visualization components.

  • Modern backend expertise: You've built backend services and systems with languages like Python, Node JS, or Go, and you understand the complexities and nuances of CRUD, Graph API, and microservices.

  • Large scale delivery: It's hard building software, but even harder to maintain it, evolve it, and keep it awesome. You've done this for large-scale software.

  • CS fundamentals: You have demonstrated a deep knowledge of computer science and/or engineering, either through earning a degree or through equivalent professional experience.
