Hello. We are Homeday.
Homeday is the next generation real estate agent. Easier. More transparent. More digital. And cheaper. Because we believe that good brokerage does not have to be expensive.
With this attitude, we want to change the market. Let’s be honest: real estate agents do not enjoy the best reputation. High commissions meet changing service standards. We think: buyers and sellers deserve better.
They deserve the best service. They deserve the best tools. They deserve the best team. Together we want to take the customer experience to a new level. And save people in Germany hundreds of millions of euros in commission.
Homeday offers great experience to people that are selling or buying their properties. We bring transparency to the German real estate market and are saving our customers millions of euros in agent commissions. We do so by combining people with great real estate experience together with excellent engineers, which results in great products and process optimizations.
How we roll
You will join our Frontend Engineering team. 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 Puppeteer
- Creating a customer web application to manage selling processes, have an overview of their property selling process and have full transparency in the process itself
- And much more… 🙂
We also like to write about things that we do. You can check out our tech blog for much more information.
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.
We have built our own component library (https://blocks.homeday.dev/?path=/story/welcome–welcome) 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.
