Three years ago, this week, Zillow went public. The Seattle-based real estate database saw tremendous success in its initial IPO and it seems to be on a relentless upswing. Shares are currently valued at $127.60 each, and that kind of momentum means one thing — expansion.
So, it comes as no surprise that Zillow is on a hiring spree. The company recently posted a slew of job listings on GeekWork, our site for technology jobs in the Pacific Northwest. One interesting prospect is a full-time Group Program Manager position. The job includes end-to-end product and team management, working with designers, and providing project management and prioritization guidance for home shopping and data import pipelines.
Zillow says it’s seeking candidates “with a passion for User Experience to continue building the core of our company.”
