About Rentola

Rentola is an online marketplace, where tenants can browse through the catalog of thousands of available rental properties. With just a few clicks, a tenant can start a conversation with a landlord. The company is only about 5 years old, but today we're active in 20 countries, and still expanding.

On our network of websites, we service over 5M users per month, and we’re growing at a rapid tempo.

We have a central office in Copenhagen, but most of our technical team is working remotely. In total we have about 25 people employed, and more than half work remotely

Why is it interesting to work at Rentola?

- Shape the direction of the company as an early team member: Rentola has been in the business for a few years, but it’s only during the last 6-12 months that we have transitioned from a start up to a scale up. That means you have a huge influence on which projects we should take on, how to manage our tech stack and just how we approach things in general. - We promote freedom under responsibility.

- Proof of product: Good news - We already have several profitable websites and products that our users enjoy using. The even better news is there’s still plenty left to work on, and that’s where we hope you come in.

- Work-life balance: Thrive at work, but know that it doesn’t take over your life.

- Ship fast, fail fast, recover and learn (we deploy multiple times a day to production).

Modern Tech Stack:

- Modern databases: Postgres, ElasticSearch and Redis.
- Rails 5 and 6 projects with some greenfield, fresh and early stage projects.
- All infrastructure and deployments are running on Docker, managed and orchestrated by Dokku.
- Distributed systems with high availability and scalability in mind (we serve ~5k requests per second on all rentola sites).
- State of the art observability and monitoring tools: NewRelic, Sentry, and other in-house tools.
- In-house built analytics and data collection and streaming service that helps us take informative and data-driven business decisions.
