by Marilyn Wilson on January 12, 2017

We work with tons of brokerages that say they want to look at their business in completely new ways. Companies that have been in the business for a long time though, cannot fundamentally change their approach for fear of losing agents and decreasing their market share. eXp REALTY is different. This company came out of the gate with a fundamentally different business model and an extremely unique approach to sales coaching, training and management. It is the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage®. Technology is absolutely at the center point of what makes eXp unique. Their industry exclusive use of a 3D immersive cloud office eliminates the need for the costly brick and mortar offices of traditional firms. . These cost efficiencies in turn allow the Company to deliver more value to their agents. They’re growing like gangbusters so they’re looking for a really smart and strategic Chief Technology Officer to help them continue to expand beyond the over 2400 agents and 42 state footprint they have established in a very short time. The ideal candidate will have strong leadership skills and will have a unique mix of understanding the needs of agents and their clients combined with a depth of technology vision and executional skills. As a key member of eXp Realty’s executive management team, this newly created position will act as strategic thought leader who will help drive the growth of the Company through the building of a scalable enterprise application through which eXp can efficiently serve its fast -growing international agent base. In addition, the CTO will drive the evolution of eXp’s Cloud Office to better serve the Company’s agents. The CTO will also be charged with developing a data strategy within the organization to leverage the vast amount of data available to the Company. This is a critical role in helping to shape and drive the future success of eXp Realty.
