Premium Job From LandTech
Recruiter: LandTech
Listed on: 1st October
Location: United Kingdom
Salary Notes: Excellent
Type: Permanent
Start Date: ASAP


LandTech empowers property developers to build the places that communities need to thrive.

The UK is in the middle of a housing shortage and it's too difficult for property developers to build the places we need. To keep up with demand, the property industry needs to keep evolving. LandTech is part of that evolution. We're supercharging the whole development process by building technology for every stage of a property developer's journey towards unlocking land.

We started five years ago, with two co-founders who built a product to help understand the development potential of any piece of land - LandInsight. Fast forward to now, and that product is the industry standard for site sourcing and assessment, and we're a multi-million-pound business carving a path to international success.

At LandTech, we believe in understanding the preferences, passions and life purpose for all our people and meeting them there.

It's understanding that families and outside life are important.

That's why we offer flexible hours, unlimited holiday, and a commitment to transition into a remote-first company by 2021, having listened to employee needs in our internal surveys.

It's understanding that we are all multi-dimensional beings, and not just working ones.

That's why we financially invest in both professional and personal development for all employees to help make that happen; from finally taking those driving lessons, to booking that father-daughter art class they have always wanted to do. We're just focused on being a great place to work, but we're happy to have picked up some awards along the way:

Winner of the UK Customer Experience - Employee Empowerment Awards 2020

Winner at the UK Employee Experience Awards - Employee Engagement 2020

Top 10 SaaS Companies to work for - Sales Confidence, 2018 & 2019

Excellence in People Development - PropTech, 2018

Fastest-growing Business - PropTech, 2018


We're a diverse group of engineers working in an open, collaborative and cross-functional environment, to help understand the difficult challenges within the land and property systems. We empower teams and individuals to solve, build, deliver and operate high quality technical solutions to help our customers... and we're proud of our work!

We are guided by our Engineering Values (Confidence, Creativity, Collaboration and Excellence) and Engineering Principles, centred around a culture of "continuous learning/improvement" and "respect for people".


You will be working as a contributor, remote-first in a cross-functional product development team, reporting to your team's Lead Software Engineer.

Our tech is always evolving and best defined by our Tech Radar. We rely heavily on the following technology and tools:

JavaScript, TypeScript, Node.js, Vue.js, React - for writing application code.

AWS - for our infrastructure (including CDK, Lambda, Docker, Beanstalk, EC2, SQS, CloudWatch, Grafana).

Data stores - S3, Mongo, Postgres/PostGIS (Aurora), ElasticSearch, ELK.

CI/CD via CircleCI / GitHub Actions. We deploy on average ~500 times a month.

What you'll be doing:

You'll play a central role in developing our products and evolving our platform to work across multiple regions over the next 12 months.

You'll help grow the team and mature our engineering culture and processes, improving our craft and capacity to deliver.

You will be accountable for:

Organisation & Planning - working alongside the Product Manager setting product and technical direction for the team. Collaboratively defining and managing scope as part of iterative, incremental delivery.

Growth - identifying product / team / individual opportunity for growth. Supporting, mentoring and working with other engineers so that they may learn from your direction and experiences. Embracing failure as an opportunity to learn and improve.

Collaboration - encouraging cross-functional collaboration, helping clarify, elaborate and iterate technical concepts to assist in delivering our strategy.

Your team will be accountable for:

Designing, building and operating high quality software... You build it, you run it.

Delivering regular, incremental value to our customers, managing scope and stakeholder expectations.

Empathising with users and colleagues to understand the problems they face.


What we're looking for:

  • You have a growth mindset with passion learning, continuous improvement and mentoring those around you.
  • You're humble, enthusiastic, innovative and enjoy working collaboratively as part of a team.
  • You are comfortable leading on work or in technical discussion, keeping those around you engaged.
  • You are confident in application design and architecture, technically leading others in iterative, incremental delivery.
  • You have a strong technical background in cloud native services and architecture, ideally AWS (serverless and container orchestration).
  • You have many years experience in code craft, paradigms and principles. You either have expertise in, or are able to quickly adapt to, working in a JavaScript / TypeScript / Node.js and React environment.
  • You have extensive experience of, and are looking to work in an environment centred around XP (TDD, Pairing, Incremental Change) and accelerating / de-risking delivery through DevSecOps practices (CI/CD, Infra as Code, Continuous Monitoring...).
  • You have a background in understanding complex user problems, defining solutions centred around simplicity and incremental execution / delivery.
  • You are comfortable moving between and learning different technologies / domains (frontend, backend, data), even if it's not your core expertise.
  • You can demonstrate critical thinking (for example, when to build vs buy vs re-use).

What will I need for remote-first working?

To be a UK tax resident. Predominantly located in the UK (keeping within tax residency laws if working outside the UK for a period of time).

A stable internet connection, whereby you can video call / remote pair program / connect to AWS services etc...

An appropriate, healthy working environment so that you can communicate with others (audibly and/or visually).

LandTech provides new starters with a £2,800 (+VAT) equipment budget to purchase kit needed for remote working (we provide 13" Macbook Pro's as standard). As well as a £200 (+VAT) remote working fund.

You may be asked to co-locate for a working day, twice a year (most likely to London). If asked to co-locate, LandTech provides up to £300 in travel expenses per trip.

What would make you a Landtech'er?

Open - We are honest, collaborative and trusting, rooted in humility and a respect for creativity, sensitivity and differences.

Empower - We actively enable personal and professional growth by providing opportunity, autonomy and support.

Home - We are welcoming, inclusive and nurturing, believing work is a place where people can feel comfortable, cared for and happy.

These are our values. And we live them every day. Want proof? 

Do you share our values? Then join our journey.


What we can offer you?

The chance to work in a scale-up environment offering many growth opportunities and challenges... in how we organise, what we build and how we build it.

An emerging, relevant sector (PropTech) and the opportunity to disrupt/challenge the status quo of how the spaces around us are developed... something all the more important since the pandemic changed the world.

A remote-first, work-anywhere environment with flexible working hours... to help you be as productive as possible and support you in all the challenges life can create.

Working within a cross-functional, self-organising team with autonomy around how you work in order to best solve problems. Being cross-functional also offers the opportunity to expand your skill set outside of your core expertise.
