Apartment List is hiring a backend engineer to help us solve one of the biggest problems that exists today.

Do you dream of making an impact on peoples lives by bringing amazing products to life? Here is your opportunity.Who You Are

- Work in a small team of like-minded software engineers
- Use the right tool for the job. Our backend is powered by Ruby, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, Kinesis, Go and AMQP, and we are always open to new ideas on how to make us more productive
