A Better opportunity:

We are looking for a release engineer to codify and iterate on our release practices at Better. We want to support our engineering teams to release as frequently as they want, while building reliability and quality into our releases and release procedures. This position will have a wide impact and influence across engineering. You’re a great match if you have worked on release mechanisms in past roles, and are passionate about delivering quality software to production.


Responsibilities Include:

  • Prepare releases from our fast moving teams.
  • Partner with Engineering, Product, and Operations to understand what is being released and work with teams to ensure the changes are validated
  • Define our release strategies, and educate the entire engineering team on them
  • Work with Engineering, including the Test Engineering team, to help define quality gates
  • Communicate status during the release and hotfix process
  • Gather metrics about our releases so we can understand what is working and iterate
  • Build dashboards to illustrate the work of the release engineering team

About you:

  • You have 3-5 years of experience on a release team
  • You have experience configuring build pipelines (buildkite, spinnaker, jenkins), including approval steps or gates and blue green deploys.
  • You are familiar with git branching strategies, and have implemented them in the past.
  • You are not satisfied with manual steps and are comfortable working on internal tooling to automate anything repeatable
  • You have scaled release practices in the past
  • You are able to work cross functionally and across teams
  • Preferably a degree in computer science or requisite experience

Better is requiring all US employees to be fully vaccinated in order to go into the office. Our priority is first and foremost the safety of our employees and we require COVID-19 vaccination to help ensure their safety in the workplace. Please note that Better will offer a reasonable accommodation process for employees who are not vaccinated for medical or religious reasons.

The Better mission is rooted in values that drive us.

  • We do what’s in the best interest of the consumer, not ourselves
  • We have growth mindsets, not fixed ones
  • We believe that success lies in execution, not credentials
  • We act like owners, not just employees
  • We work to find answers on our own, not wait for them to be given to us
  • We optimize for mission, not ego

Our mission speaks for itself—we continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We’ve joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank, and our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, Ally Bank, and others have invested in our vision for what homeownership can be.
