Overview

WHY YOU’LL LOVE SHOWCASE IDX:

We 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.

We are 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.

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. We are rethinking today’s generic home search experience and creating a set of next-generation tools that will help millions of people around the world find and buy their next home.

It’s important to us that work is as enjoyable and provides opportunities for individual growth. We like making well-reasoned decisions and making them quickly. We don’t particularly like too many meetings, but we love working together to figure things out. We’re laid back with each other, don’t take ourselves too seriously, and laugh (probably more than we should), but we always focus on staying close to our customers and adding value to their daily lives.

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.

We believe that delivering value outweighs how many hours you work or where you work. We provide a flexible work schedule, generous vacation, a relaxed work environment, and opportunities for professional growth and development.

  • Amazing work/life balance – sane & flexible work schedule, generous vacation.
  • Work on interesting customer and product challenges in an environment that encourages creativity, fun, and the use of new tools to deliver the best results.

  • Have your work be seen and used by millions of people.
  • Spend your day looking for ways to make customers successful, not simply solving problems.
  • Great benefits like Health Insurance and flexible vacation scheduling.
