Job Details


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 sight 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. We champion a culture of 'continuous learning/improvement' and 'respect for people'.

Our tech is always evolving and best defined by our Tech Radar. As a summary here's some of our more commonly used tech:
  • TypeScript, Node.js, Vue.js, Docker
  • AWS - CDK, Lambda, Beanstalk, EC2, SQS, CloudWatch
  • Data stores - S3, Mongo, Postgres/PostGIS (Aurora), ElasticSearch
  • CI/CD via CircleCI. We deploy on average ~500 times a month


You will be working in a cross-functional product development team, reporting to the Head Of Engineering.
  • You'll play a central role in developing our products and re-designing our platform to work across multiple regions over the next 12 months
  • You'll help grow the team and mature our engineering culture, improving our craft and capacity to deliver


You will be accountable for:
  • Technical Leadership - alongside the Product Manager, helping drive the technical and product direction with the team.
  • Growth - enhancing those around you. Supporting, mentoring and pairing with other engineers so that they may learn from your direction and experiences.
  • 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.
  • Empathising with users and colleagues to understand the problems they face
  • Understanding, importing and connecting datasets as part of our product... fast, automated, repeatedly.
  • Building systems for storing and accessing our data, moving it to where it needs to be, easily.


You care about the impact your work has to customers and believe that successful software comes from close collaboration; with customers and the people you work with. You flourish in an Agile, autonomous, cross-functional environment.
  • You design solutions that are simple for any engineer to pick up, understand and build upon. You maximise the work not done, leveraging tools and libraries to deliver faster.
  • You write test-driven, clean code and have a good understanding of programming paradigms (such as object orientated and functional), concepts and principles.
  • You have a grounded understanding of algorithms, data structures and design patterns knowing when (and when not) to use them.

You are experienced in:
  • Technically leading in delivering high quality solutions to complex problems, helping define delivery timescales as part of tactical and strategic planning
  • Supporting, mentoring and guiding people around you
  • Conflict resolution, and awareness of those around you
  • Working in an Agile, automated, continuous integration + continuous deployment environment
  • Cloud-based services and architecture (we use AWS) with infra-as-code (CDK)
  • Code craft and test-driven development. We primarily work in TypeScript/Node/JavaScript so experience in them is beneficial

  • Result & Quality Focused - Advanced Level
  • Management - Advanced Level
