Join the change


Help us on our mission to make homeownership safer, easier and more affordable!

Kodit.io, a PropTech that operates in multiple countries in Europe and that is changing how people buy and sell their house, is launching in France.

The Data Product team mission is to power our Real Estate operations through Real Estate Data. The Data Product team retrieves Real Estate data, and then makes it useful through Data Engineering, Data Science and Machine Learning.

We are looking for someone who will lead all the Data Engineering, Data Science and Machine Learning projects for France, as well as work on multi-country projects. As a data scientist, your first mission will be to lead the implementation of our tools in France, getting data from various sources through APIs & Scraping, designing data models, building transformation pipelines, and building machine learning models. After that, you will continue leading French projects and working in cross-country projects, collaborating with the data product team.

Our Tech & Product team loves working in an agile way and you can count on a lot of flexibility when it comes to working hours or remote work, as long as you are based in France.


Here are a few challenges we have for you:

    • Leading the implementation of our tools in France.
    • Analyzing what the best sources of data are to solve our problems.
    • Ingesting data from multiple sources in all the countries we operate in.
    • Establishing methods for measuring and improving data quality.
    • Building machine learning models and putting them in production.
    • Mentoring & coaching your teammates to help them grow.


You are our perfect match if you have…

  • The energy and knowledge to lead the data science efforts for France in a multi-country and multi-product system.
  • At least 4 years of experience in data roles (Data Science, Data Engineering, Machine Learning) delivering data products in a fast-paced environment.
  • Proficiency in Python and SQL.
  • Experience ingesting and managing data sets that are messy or incomplete at source.
  • Advanced English French.


These will help you to succeed in this role:

  • Previous Real Estate experience.
  • The ideal candidate wants to grow with the company as the company increases several times its size in the next few years, and takes more responsibility leading in multiple countries, as a Manager or Individual Contributor.


    Why you’ll love working at Kodit.io:

    • Make an impact, join the change: You will develop tools that will be used to buy, renovate, sell and broker thousands of houses across Europe, while creating a top-notch customer experience and building the future of homeownership. We are a fast growing company, which means plenty of opportunities for professional development.
    • Flexibility & Ownership: We are result-oriented and value ownership. We strive to hire people with a great sense of responsibility and build relationships based on trust. This means a lot of flexibility when it comes to working hours & the home office.
    • Teamwork: We prefer team spirit and common goals to large egos.
    • International Environment: We have offices in 3 European countries with 9 different nationalities (and counting).
    • Open-minded team: No one has all the answers, we love hearing (and implementing) new ideas.
    • Come as you are: No dress codes. No judging. No discrimination. Be authentic & stay true to yourself, we wouldn’t want it any other way.
    • We offer a permanent contract and we know how to value (and compensate for) your dedication, effort, and commitment.
