We design, prototype, and roll-out IoT devices and smart home tech to help physically manage and solve important business operations.
Amherst employs a wide variety of tech to drive innovation in U.S. residential real estate. We are building RESTful microservices on serverless cloud infrastructures. Our consumer facing tools and websites are built with React.js, Next.js, Tailwind CSS, and Vercel. Our platform tools are built with Nest.js, Typescript, AWS and .Net. We build native and React Native iOS and Android apps. Our BI and data teams are using Hadoop, Hive, and Presto to create the data sets that power the business.
Most importantly, Amherst has a strong, developer friendly culture. We are looking for developers who are scrappy and fast, who focus on solutions not problems, who understand that code is cost, and who aren’t afraid of a tough deadline.
