About Opendoor

Founded in 2014, Opendoor’s mission is to empower everyone with the freedom to move.

Our engineering team is helping to redefine a $1.9 trillion dollar industry that hasn’t upgraded its technology in decades. And in just a few years, we’ve already turned the traditional real estate model on its head by helping our customers buy and sell more than 100,000 homes across the US. But our work is far from over and we’re seeking exceptional Software Engineering Interns to join us as we continue to to build industry defining services and products for our customers and our team.

Up for the challenge? Transforming an industry takes tenacity and dedication. It takes problem solvers and builders. Creators and innovators. So where do you fit in? Whether you’re passionate about real estate, people, numbers, words, code, or strategy -- we have a place for you.
