Job Description:

Who We Are

Realtor.com is your one stop shop for homebuyers, sellers, and dreamers, with comprehensive for-sale and for-rent listings, insightful information, valuable tools and professional expertise. We're excited and hungry to make a difference to the millions of people in the US who buy a home each year. Our aspiration starts with treating our home buyer as our focal point - we believe that delivering on experiences that truly help people through this seemingly difficult life event will lead us to continued and greater success as a company.

What You Will Be Doing---

Property Content is the foundation on which our user experiences are built, and as a product manager focused on content, your role will be to work across the organization to ensure that Realtor.com delivers the data that new home buyers and renters seek out, and rely upon.

In order to meet our users' needs for great real estate data, you'll focus on three elements in particular: listing breadth , depth , and speed .

Listing breadth is a very challenging problem to solve, that will require strong product execution, as well as creative problem solving. Real estate searchers seek a comprehensive set of results that they can be confident includes all of the homes that are available for sale or for rent. However, there is no one place that has all of the available listings aggregated, so you'll need to identify who has the listing data, and develop solutions that enable them to display those available homes on Realtor.com. There is great diversity in terms of who has the data (independent landlords, big apartment REITS, custom home builders, national builders, etc), so you'll need to understand who they are, how they operate, and tailor solutions that enable them to deliver their content to Realtor.com.

Aggregating great content breadth is only part of the challenge though, because you'll also focus on listing depth, to ensure that for the properties we display, we can paint the richest possible picture for a user, of what it would be like to live in that home. That could mean capturing all of the property facts and details from the property owner, it could mean pulling in vivid photos or virtual tours or floorplans, or it could mean augmenting the property info with 3rd party data like reviews, or utility costs.

Finally, since properties move on and off of the market very quickly, listing speed matters greatly, so that buyers and renters can act fast. To ensure timely data, you'll need to focus on our platform architecture and processes, to ensure that the listings we aggregate, can make it on (and off) of Realtor.com as rapidly as possible.

You won't be alone on this journey. You'll motivate and guide content focused product strategy and development as a part of a small, empowered team of designers and engineers. Together, with a clear mission in your head and heart, you'll ship a lot of engaging, beautiful and personalized new product solutions that build the strongest content foundation anywhere.
