Visual commerce platform for real estate
Oda Studio is developing cutting edge technology and a proprietary photo management platform to transform the way images are utilized in real estate and e-commerce. Oda is backed by Y Combinator and founded by a team with a collective 10+ years of experience bringing automation to the real estate industry.
Oda upgrades and virtually stages real estate photos using machine learning. Our software streamlines the process of virtually adding furniture, decor, electronics, and art to property photos, providing every prospective buyer and renter the opportunity to see their future home furnished with personalized items.
Here at Oda, we’re looking for software engineers who enjoy iterating & shipping quickly, and exhibit a strong sense of ownership and autonomy.
Our interview process is designed to find these kinds of engineers. Moreover, we try to ask questions that are relevant to the types of products we build -- mostly full stack work, with bits of internal tooling, MLOps, analysis and customer interaction.
Below is what to expect in our interview process. If you have questions, email us at email@example.com
This stage is a more informal call to get to know more about the role, and for you to evaluate whether it’s a good fit for you. We are looking for people with a strong interest in startups and motivation to help them; this is usually exhibited by past experience working at or starting one yourself. We will cover some light technical discussion about your past projects. Mostly, we want to know that you can code and ship fairly involved systems, and speak to them with clarity on the details. This tends to be a good indication that an engineer had strong ownership and showed autonomy in making product or technical decisions.
We’re a small & scrappy software team. In this chat, you’re welcome to ask lots of questions about whether working at Oda makes sense for you.
Debugging / API design
Working with existing code is required for most engineers, so we’ve built an interview to test for it. You’ll be given code to debug and fix, and communicate your process of doing so.
This is a discussion about how you would build a feature and your decision making. You’ll be mostly brainstorming & writing (not coding) on a shared notion doc.
This interview is more behavioral and is a chance to ask your questions to all co-founders. Besides, we will cover your past experiences, interest in startups and how you operate in smaller teams.
The typical interview process takes 4 days to 2 weeks from start to finish. We can move quickly and look to accommodate candidates who might have a short timeline or competing offers.
