Job Description

How is it like working at 99.co?
99.co is the fastest growing property portal in Singapore. Our obsession is to make the property market in Singapore and Asia more transparent, honest and reliable.

We dream deep. We believe in taking the red pill and working on things that have a sustainable and deep impact. We work to change real world industries rather than sit in ivory towers of software.

We work hard as a team — in the end, that’s the best part of the journey. Being part of something bigger than yourself, learning about yourself and learning how to trust someone else completely.

Read about our culture here before you apply! :)

You'll be responsible for tasks ranging between writing the application API and maintaining the infrastructure that keeps 99.co running. The backend/infrastructure team is responsible for ensuring the client apps have a clean and sensible API to call into, the operations team have reliable and accurate data to use, and that the technological infrastructure required runs smoothly.

You are the person we are looking for if:

  • You can't stand sloppily designed APIs
  • 'Uptime'- now that's something that makes you smile
  • You swell with pride when front-end devs compliment you on the neatness of your API design
  • You agree that code is for humans to read and only incidentally for computers to execute
  • Also, messy data annoys you
  • You have no problem setting up and configuring a Linux/UNIX server from scratch
  • You are obsessive about collecting and making sense of large sets of incomplete and messy data
  • You are able to conceive, convince, implement and maintain reasonable APIs for our data
  • You thrive in an startup environment and embrace changes
  • You RTFM and will paste an html peace character somewhere in your application.

We believe in maximising life. We don't mean some unsatisfying ‘work-life balance’ crap. We believe you can have your cake and eat it too. We believe in taking control of our time to make the most out of it. We believe in fighting to make every day, every decision count. We believe our limited time here matters. We believe you can live healthily, work hard to build a startup and have a great time at the same time.
