StreetEasy – Why Work With Us?


Home matters to everyone. It’s an essential part of our physical security and financial stability; it shapes communities, friendships and weekend plans. We believe that if we can help every person make better, smarter decisions about where they choose to live, we can make a huge impact – at both an individual and a macro level.

At StreetEasy, we build transformational tools and services that help renters, buyers, homeowners and sellers find the home that’s right for them. We are constantly reimagining how people approach and interact with this decision by exploring new technology and investing in great ideas – whether they come from an intern or the CEO.

Our mission is to build the largest, most trusted and vibrant home-related marketplace in New York City, and we remind ourselves of this almost daily. Our mission drives us to stay motivated and work together to accomplish great things.

We’re just getting started.

  • Commuter Reimbursement – Employees are reimbursed for their commuting costs up to $500 in addition to a Citi Bike membership.
  • Equity Choice – As a part of Zillow Group’s compensation package all employees are able to choose how they would like to receive their stock – in the form of restricted stock units (RSUs), stock options or a combination of the two. The program allows employees to tailor their equity-based compensation to their long and short-term financial goals and needs.
  • Eat, Drink and Be Merry: Our kitchens are fully stocked with drinks, fruit and snacks. On Tuesdays, our staff enjoys catered lunches from a rotating list of local restaurants and monthly happy hours.
  • Sabbatical (“ZG R&R”) - After six consecutive years at Zillow Group, employees are eligible to take up to six consecutive weeks off of work to recharge and reboot (“R&R”).

  • ZG is a Team Sport

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at StreetEasy (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews, one with a recruiter and one with the manger of the team. Both of the calls were about 30 minutes and every step of the way was clearly mapped out for me. The recruiter I was working with was extremely accommodating and timely with her responses. After the two phone interviews, I was invited to an on site interview where I met with the director of the team, three of the senior team members, and the manager of the team. The on site interview was a little under 1.5 hours. I was impressed that they had thoroughly read through my resume and asked many of their questions based off of that.
