Zillow Set to Hire 2,000 New Employees

The Zillow Group Inc., which is revolutionizing how people purchase, sell, rent, and finance properties, revealed on 11th March 2021 that it plans to hire over 2,000 new employees nationwide in 2021, bringing its overall staff up to 40 percent. A year of remarkable growth around the company, and a historic year in the real estate sector, prompted this substantial hiring target.


The majority of new or soon-to-be-available vacancies in tech, mortgage and lending, product and software engineering, and other fields are classified as remote and hybrid positions, which are open to candidates from all over the world. There is a combination of in-office and field positions in the new roles. Many of these vacancies are now available and taking applications through Zillow's Career Site.

Earlier, Zillow was one of the first organizations to launch an expanded work-from-home opportunity for thousands of employees, making it an early pioneer in the future of work. Since then, this company listed on NASDAQ, has formally introduced the Distributed Workforce Platform, which provides existing and prospective workers with positions in the workplace, remote, and hybrid environments. Employees benefit from this model in various ways, including the ability to manage personal and career obligations better and operate where they feel most relaxed and efficient, whether under one of Zillow's offices or remotely.

Zillow's Distributed Workforce Model has prompted a change in conventional onboarding procedures, with the company onboarding almost 1,500 workers remotely since March 2020, accounting for about 28% of its new workforce. Some of the various programs Zillow has placed in motion to help potential hires include a New Hire Slack Channel and "Virtual New Hire Open House". To achieve its ambitious hiring target for 2021, Zillow is committed to reimagining conventional recruitment and working standards and becoming a pioneer in the future of flexible jobs.

Zillow's hiring decision came after the company was named to two prestigious workplace indexes, the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index and Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index. Both lists praised Zillow for advancing programs and incentives to guarantee equality for employers and their families and create a positive work environment for all workers.
