Job description.

My client is a fast-growing property-tech company. Our mission is to make the world’s buildings smarter and better connected to enable a more dynamic, collaborative and innovative future. We do this by advising property professionals on how they can develop commercial and residential buildings with best-in-class connectivity and technology design at their heart. Our vision is to be able to certify any building, anywhere in the world.

You’d be a great fit if some or all the below are true:


  • Confident and capable with software used in typical systems development environments eg database, spreadsheet, flow chart and visualisation tools.
  • Self-starter – self-motivated, hardworking, and ambitious.

  • Team player – knows when to bring other people in to support with delivery or problem-solving.


Previous Experience


  • 4-6 years’ experience working in CRE, ideally industrial technology in the built environment.
  • Proven ability to define detailed project briefs to drive design decisions.
