Overview

WHY YOU’LL LOVE SHOWCASE IDX:

Put Customers First. Team Over Self. Outcomes Over Activity. Bias Towards Action. Improve Lives.

These are some of the values we hold. They’re more than words on our “about us” page. This is what you’ll see in our culture and what we strive for in ourselves.

Our roster has a role for a highly motivated, organized, and proven content director to drive the content creation efforts on our new nationwide home search portal and other country specific sites. With your help, our home search portal will quickly become one of the top real estate search portals in the US.

Showcase IDX is a leader in home search, consumer engagement, and lead generation, enabling thousands of real estate professionals across 100+ brokerages and teams to harness the full marketing potential of modern marketing. Our consumer-facing tools were used by 12,000,000+ consumers in the last year for 30 million minutes – that’s like watching Avengers Endgame 282,625 times.

In August 2020, we were acquired by eXp World Holdings (Nasdaq: EXPI), and we will continue to operate as an independent company. For our sister company, eXp Realty, we will be developing a national and international search portal product, while maintaining the growth of our existing business.

As the Content Director, you will be responsible for growing our organic audience by working with our internal and external team members to produce content that reaches our target audience. The primary focus is on eXp’s key organic growth channels through our home search and related platforms.

This is a rare opportunity to join a fully-remote/distributed team at the beginning of a new mission, as we look to redefine how people find and buy homes on a national and eventually international scale. This role reports to our CMO and is on our growth team.

Our team is made up of experienced, talented people who see opportunities where others may not. We understand that innovation comes from experience, experimentation, iteration, taking smart risks, and rejecting the idea that the status quo is the only or best way to solve a problem. You’ll be challenged by big ideas, and have the opportunity to influence a product that truly impacts one of the biggest decisions in 100s of millions of people’s lives in very real ways by connecting them with eXp’s 80,000+ real estate agents and unlocking property ownership opportunities for individuals across the world.
