Real estate portals are looking for software developers and sales and operations managers. The online real estate market has been creating opportunities to generate new job opportunities. The startup boom has not only increased competition but also created demand for niche roles, as companies try to differentiate their offerings. The most demanding profiles in the real estate sector are software developers and sales managers. There are more opportunities for techies if they scale their abilities to Android and iOS. Major skills industry seeking in software developers are iOS, Android programming, Ruby and Python. There are also huge opportunities for entry level candidates from non tech background people in sales and operations.
Cultural fitment is the major consideration for tech or non tech candidates based on business needs. This is more applicable for senior talent with 15-20 years of experience. This age group will be considered for the function lead level or nothing else. The average age group and culture are synonymous and at any other level, it becomes an uphill task to forge work relationships. Generally real estate portal works on more around innovation and speed.
Here, digital marketing is another area where a candidate can focus on for growth opportunities. Currently there are two roles in digital marketing -brand marketing and performance marketing. Brand marketing increases the brand presence and performance marketing deals with product. Digital marketing is cost effective and much larger on outreach. There is a scope for more growth opportunities within this vertical as there is a talent shortage in this domain. Many of the property portals are not on a hiring spree and the need for manpower will be driven by attrition and not anything else.
