Ailo exists to improve the lives of every single renter or property investor, and make the property manager’s role more rewarding and straightforward. We create rich interactions that help create transparency and trust within the industry. Our role is to bring innovation into property management practices and challenge the old ways by looking at the root of the problem.

As a platform engineer, you will be working in the technology platform team, building out the next generation technology platform and related tooling that allows engineering to work in a reliable, simple and scalable way.

We value a culture of innovation, where our people can not only share their ideas but see them work and deliver value. Along the way you’ll be supported by experienced and likeminded sisters and brothers in the engineering space.

All this supports the product delivery teams (PDT) who themselves are building next generation solutions to improve every human interaction in the rental experience.

  • Be familiar with, and driven by, an agile and lean working environment
  • Have experience in building and supporting IT infrastructure in a HA and zero-downtime way

  • Enjoy keeping up to date with the latest technologies and bringing new ideas not only to the platform team but the broader delivery space
  • Sharing an excitement for solving real world problems that allow us to impact millions of users and continually improve their overall experience

What’s in it for you?

  • It’s a great place to learn. You'll work with people who are knowledgeable and experienced in software design patterns and passionate about modern practices in system development (and we hope you are too).
