Engineering at Homepolish: 

Homepolish is building a serious engineering culture. We desire to be a place engineers come to innovate and drive technology forward while meeting our business needs. At Homepolish we have an awesome group of engineers with a common goal to improve at all levels of the stack. Be part of a team that values input, empowers its members, and helps you grow.

The majority of our team is remote, maybe you are too, so being a part of our team requires constant communication. Working together across continents means being clear, concise, and active in the tools we use to collaborate, such as Slack and GitHub.

What We Are Doing:

Our team is currently building out new infrastructure to power our business. We’re excited about emerging languages and technologies like Elixir and GraphQL on the backend. Our front-end applications are being built using React and Redux to take advantage of modern frameworks and paradigms. As we transition to a new code base, we are establishing best practices and solving complex problems. We believe that code should be well tested and documented, but also fun to write. We want to use the best tools to make this happen.

Who We Need:

Homepolish wants exceptional problem solvers, first and foremost. We need people who can apply solid application design to real world problems and get things done in a distributed, fast paced environment. 

Applicants should have a solid understanding of design principles, but also know when to take pragmatic approaches without introducing excessive tech-debt. We expect our engineers to be self-directed, self-learning, and motivated.


Although we would like engineers with Elixir experience, we know programming is not just syntactical knowledge; polyglots with solid backgrounds across the stack are also welcome to apply.


Homepolish strives to be a diverse and inclusive company. We know that different voices, experiences and points of view will only strengthen our work and culture. We welcome and encourage people from all walks of life, all genders, orientations, races, ethnicities, and religions, to apply!
