Senior Software Engineer



Software Engineering
Irvine, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, November 14, 2023


Revive is a VC-backed, fast-growing proptech company focused on delivering the best renovation experience for homeowners, real estate agents, and contractors. Remodeling should be exciting, but oftentimes is a nightmare. Revive’s platform brings peace of mind by combining friendly-financing, contractor support, and award-winning technology to drive predictability & transparency.

Revive is based in Orange County, CA but supports projects in 11 states with a plan to provide nation-wide support within 2 years. In 2022, Revive won the Real Estate Innovation Award at the National Associations of Real Estate iOi Summit and Revive’s Mobile App was recognized for an award at the Ad Federation Awards.


As a Senior Software Engineer you will be joining a software engineering department that has built award-winning technology and is changing the home renovation industry. You will be part of a small but mighty team of engineers working on the best website in the industry, a custom-built dashboard used by all Revivers, a Silver Medal winning mobile app, and new products that include AI, ML, and computer vision.

A successful Revive engineer will be excited about contributing to all of the above, but will also be interested as being the lead engineer role for the application/tool of their choice. In this role you will be the go-to point of contact for all user requests, manage external resources as they support you in bug fixing, and you will collaborate with our Head of Engineering in new feature planning and development.

This is an exciting role for someone looking to jump from a mid-level to senior engineer role or for a veteran engineer who is tired of the slow pace of releases in the world of big tech. You have fullstack skills, but your strength is on the backend with Node and Express.

This is an onsite role and you will need to work from our Irvine office. While we do love creating opportunities for people to grow, this role is not open to bootcamp or college graduates.
