at Land Insight in London
(₤50000 - ₤60000 per year)
We’re a startup based about to move in to the Alphabeta Building in Shoreditch, London. There are seven people working here. You would be numero eight. But we pack a punch, and with the background, skills and experience of the team, we’re taking on a big challenge: the ‘Housing Crisis’.
We believe that by using technology to crack open the land market like the claws of a prize winning lobster, we’re in the process of making a big business that will uncover the places on which more houses can be built, by a wider range of people. This vision is backed the same investors behind Love Film, TransferWise, Zoopla, Shazaam and Property Partner. Real issues, real tech, underpinned by a real economic opportunity.
We hold it in high importance to build a team. In working for us you’ll be in constant contact with the company founders, so you’ll be in environment where you can learn about the conception of and running of a startup company that is scaling up. More so, you’ll be invited into the vision. Goalposts move all the time, we need help from other bright people that can build on the firm foundations we’ve put in place. This isn’t the average tech role, this is a problem solving role. Adopt our (proverbial) child, and help to mould and grow it. In return, we’ll stretch you and give you the space to thrive.
