Job Description:

Hi, We're AppFolio.

We're innovators, changemakers, and collaborators. We're more than just a software company - we're a cloud-based powerhouse that creates products to make our customers' lives easier. We're revolutionizing the way people do business, and we want your ideas, your enthusiasm, and your passion to help us keep on innovating.

We love where we work, and you can, too.

AppFolio was founded with a vision to revolutionize businesses through cloud-based software that is purpose-built for specific verticals. The first vertical we entered was a massive one: real estate. We focused first on property management then expanded into other facets of real estate over time. Real estate was the first of many on our quest to pioneer the multi-vertical SaaS strategy.

The most recent vertical we entered is equally massive: investment management. Starting with private equity real estate, we are helping our customers build and manage their businesses with purpose-built software that enables them to do everything from investor relations to fundraising to managing the elaborate capital formation stacks common in modern-day private equity deals.

We're looking for a Tech Lead to help lead and grow the engineering team building AppFolio Investment Management. You'll help manage and grow a strong team of developers, and you'll work closely with other leaders (e.g. product and UX), guiding your team to build innovative solutions for investment management. You'll learn about the inner workings of private equity investing, and you'll help champion our vision to streamline and automate the industry. This is a unique opportunity to get in early and help shape the future of both the team and the product that will be used by the next generation of investment managers.

You will:

  • Lead, coach, and support a highly effective team of passionate engineers
  • Empower the engineering team to deliver valuable solutions to our customers with high technical and product quality
  • Help recruit a diverse team of industry-best engineers, from sourcing to closing
  • Build trusting relationships and collaborate cross-functionally to achieve ambitious goals
  • Foster a culture of creativity, collaboration, speed, innovation, and technical excellence
  • Sustain a productive and supportive environment, keeping the team focused and engaged

We're looking for someone who has:

  • The ability to thrive with high levels of autonomy and responsibility
  • Strong recruiting skills, with a record of hiring team members who are highly effective over the long term
  • Experience building SaaS products, especially B2B or financial products
  • Experience leading highly agile and effective engineering teams that ship constantly
  • Experience with modern cloud software tools and methodologies
  • Experience with modern web frameworks and methodologies
  • Excellent collaboration skills with product and UX to rapidly launch new products and iterate on existing ones

Bonus points if you have:

  • A passion for investing and investment management, with the commitment to build an industry-transforming product over the long term
  • Strong React.js experience
  • Experience with AI/ML technologies, especially in a B2B setting
