Job Description

You’ll be leading the frontend technology team (ReactJS/React Native) on our Auctm product. Think of the role as a Tech Lead EM kind of role.

You will work together with multiple stakeholders in cross-functional teams - Great products aren’t built with engineering silos. We believe that in early-stage startups, there are no Engineering teams. There are only Product Teams

If you are interested, Kevin from our Engineering Team wrote a blog that offers a comprehensive window to the coding culture and ethics at Squadstack: Squadstack takes the Joel Test.

About Auctm

At Auctm, we are building the operating system for the US real estate teams of the future (~$100B industry in just annual commissions).

Despite being a huge market it is extremely fragmented with lots of inefficiencies. The industry has been behind on tech. The systems and tools are reminiscent of Web 1.0, poor user interfaces, highly siloed, and built without consideration for data science, machine learning, design, open APIs, and other themes we’d consider fundamental to product and technology. There are systems of record, but there are no systems of intelligence.

For Brokers; Auctm fixes this all by giving the broker CEO a dashboard (ReactJS) that helps them visualize their most important leading and lagging indicators and providing them with their most important insights. This allows them to focus on what’s driving delta in their business, and correct or double down on it. 

For Agents; To close the loop, we provide a voice assistant (React Native app) to agents that integrates with the CRM. We built the app after conducting 100s of interviews with agents so that they’d love it. It functions as an Executive Assistant from their phone & helps them automate/delegate all the grunt-work (leads prioritization, meetings scheduling, dictating notes etc.). This smart assistant is powered using our data science models which are continuously improving as we acquire more data.

Business Model; The commission-driven pricing model native to real estate allows us to charge a percentage of transaction fees on top of the SaaS fee, similar to a fintech model (which is much higher upside and aligned incentives to the broker team).
