About Homeday

HOMEDAY is the next generation estate agent. Easier. Transparent. Digital. And cheaper. Because we believe: Good brokerage does not have to be expensive. Do you want to change the real estate market with us? Then join us on our growth course.

We are looking for people with a creative urge. People with an eye for the big picture - and the little detail that makes the difference. People who want to leave a lasting impression in a dynamic environment.

How we roll

You will join our Frontend Engineering team, however on a daily basis, we are organized in product squads, which consist of frontend engineers, backend engineers, designers, product managers and possibly other professionals that are needed for a squad to work independently (ML, GIS,....). Currently we have 5 squads, focusing on different areas from customer experience to internal processes.

Some of the things, we’ve more recently worked on:

  • Implementing property listings on our website, where buyers can get in direct contact with us

  • Implementing flow for property sellers, so they can book an appointment with us directly online

  • Automatization of document generation (auto pdf generation from web) with Chrome and Puppeter

  • Creating a customer web application to manage selling processes, have overview of their property selling process and have full transparency in the process itself.

  • And much more… :)

Methodology

We use full Scrum, with 2 week sprints, including daily scrum meetings (between 10am - 11am), sprint planning, story telling, sprint reviews and sprint retrospectives. We use Jira as our project management tool. In our frontend team, we follow the forking workflow and use CI and CD for all our products.

Tech stack

Javascript is a major part of our stack. Specifically, we rely on VueJS a lot and encourage using modern Javascript - ES6, ES7. We have built our own component library and do not rely on any CSS framework - nor do we want to. We follow BEM for structuring styles and use SCSS as our preprocessor of choice. On most of our projects we use webpack and all the standard build tools and extensions, that you would normally expect.
