About the teamWe are on a mission to make buying or selling a home a magical experience for consumers. In the Zillow Offers product, Zillow buys homes directly from interested homeowners, thereby sparing them the tremendous stress and effort of the selling process. As we re-sell these homes, we are building next-generation experiences for buyers to find, tour, and purchase a home with transparency and control. Zillow Offers is a key initiative at Zillow as we aim to define the future of real estate. The product is still in very early stages, so come seize this rare opportunity and apply your expertise in a brand new arena.
