About Aalto:
Aalto has set out to create the modern, self-serve real estate platform homebuyers and sellers have been craving for decades. Beginning in 2021, sellers have been able to list their homes with a flexible and no-risk process, unlocking homes for sale months earlier than traditional real estate. Homebuyers enjoyed Aalto's exclusive homes, unique insights, and rebates. Tens of thousands of buyers and sellers across the Bay Area are already using Aalto.
We are a distributed team of do-ers with five pillars at our core: start by being bold, drive a little over the speed limit, be an owner not a renter, disclose often, and demonstrate radical caring. Learn more at
About The Team:
We are a group of 12 engineers from startups and established companies alike. We aim to delight and gain much satisfaction from solving consumer problems. To do that, we divide and conquer with team members working on the following: growth, discovery, experience, or infrastructure. We operate on a system of values that includes: always doing the right thing (leave things better than when you found them, do what’s best for users, teammates, and the codebase), courageous improvement (continuous improvement, analyzing shippable and pivoting directions in some instances), honesty and openness.
We aim to hire developers who are passionate about changing the way people buy and sell homes
Our modern stack utilizes React, Next.js, Cypress, Node, PostgreSQL, Docker, Kubernetes, and Google Cloud Platform, among other technologies, platforms, and services.

In this role you will…

  • Work with product, design, and marketing to understand growth problems and build growth levers.
  • Be driven by a scientific approach and data-based experiments to optimize the growth process.
  • Drive tasks, features, and projects with a sense of ownership.
  • Write technical plans and break down product specs and designs.
  • Work with teammates to ensure we’re solving consumer needs.
  • Write and maintain code to implement consumer value and deliver a performant, top-tier experience.

You may enjoy working at Aalto if you...

  • Have 3+ years of experience working in a Growth team setting as a software engineer in an evolving codebase.
  • Are team-focused. You’re excited to work with peers across engineering, product, design, marketing, customer advisors, and other roles at Aalto. You understand that success lies with the team's progress (not just your own).
  • Are autonomous. You figure out which way you need to be pointed and are creative in clearing your path.
  • Act with a sense of urgency. An early-stage startup needs to be agile to customer and business needs, and you’re excited to move fast with us.

  • Listen with curiosity. You strive to learn from each conversation and get excited when discovering the unexpected.
  • Are quality-oriented and take pride in your work. You care about the outcome of your team's work and hold yourself to a high standard while keeping an eye on practicality.

Our Values

  • Be bold. Go big with ideas, knowing "different" often beats "better."
  • Drive a little over the speed limit. Embrace the discomfort of speed, as it's our core advantage.
  • Be an owner, not a renter. Make decisions like it's your company... because it is.
  • Disclose often. Make a habit of sharing your plans and learnings widely.
  • Demonstrate radical caring. Go way beyond what other companies consider "normal," both for customers and colleagues.
