We’re growing our team to help shape the vision of our products by delivering iterative value to market and mitigate the risks along the way.

Our Product Managers work across a broad range of tasks and relish the day to day variety they encounter. This is sometimes high-level theoretical work, such as opportunity assessment and understanding the value chain of the property market. Other times our work can be deep, detailed and focussed with an emphasis on owning and refining backlogs.

A dedication to learning and improving, both self and team

A passion for our domain

A drive to satisfy the needs of our customers through best-in-class technology solutions
