Why work at Trulia?
Engineering gets respect.
We use the phrase 'we're a tech company that does Real Estate' to emphasize how important engineering is to the company. Engineering is the team that drives our apps, tools, data, and interfaces forward. This attitude comes not only from engineers, but from our CEO and other top management. They believe in us.
Innovation happens every day. http://youtu.be/YJHsr2ep1cw
Trulia is focused on creating the very best technology in the industry. We don't just talk about innovation; we actually dedicate time to work the magic. Engineers get to build the products they want to build. We need your ideas to keep it going.
We have awesome problems to solve.
The housing market provides a fantastic blend of problems. We need creative people to help us combine the data on every address in America while making it easier for people find a home that makes them feel safe, happy, and comfortable.
Stability is wonderful.
We're that rare company that holds the culture of its startup roots, while blending in the sanity of a regular work schedule with an emphasis on work/life/family balance.
What you'll work on:
Join a small team to build and shape products that create relationships with our users and have an immediate and measurable impact. You'll interface with product and marketing teams to create and improve email templates and do A/B tests. Use your creative skills to find innovative uses of technology to improve systems for processing large datasets. We are currently delivering tens of millions of emails a week and reaching an audience of 30 million+ unique monthly users.
- 1-2 years professional programming experience (PHP preferred)
- Experience creating robust and responsive HTML
- Excellent communication skills & attention to detail
- You've worked effectively with Design & Marketing teams
- BSCS or equivalent
Preferred but not required:
- Understanding of mobile technologies
- Experience with SQL databases (MySQL preferred)
- Experience with marketing email systems

What you'll work with:
Our base web stack is LAMP, which interfaces with Solr/Lucene, Hadoop, Python, Couchbase, StrongMail, ActiveMQ, Open Street Maps, and more. Utilizing a homegrown distributed PHP system, we crunch through several gigabytes of data daily. We're also in the process of folding SASS into our workflow. Git is our version control system of choice. If there's something that's a good idea for the team, we'll do our best to implement it.
How we work:
The engineering team is about a hundred people, and we break into small teams of 2-4 to focus on specific projects. We release weekly, but new features are always under development and often span releases. Our local QA team writes automation tests and does hand testing of your features, working with you to ensure that only high quality code gets to production. Organizationally, we're pretty flat, though you'll have a mentor with whom you'll have weekly 1-on-1 meetings, to review code, exchange ideas, and ensure we're doing everything we can for you to thrive in your role.
