We are also creating a Fintech / Crowdfunding platform to allow investors to share in our success and gain access to a niche investment strategy on London property.

Based in our City office you will be immersing yourself in an engaging and unique culture – where openness, collaboration and intellectual curiosity is fostered in a buzzing environment.

- A technology background, backed up by a technical degree, high quality intensive training course or at least two years of professional experience.
- Comfortable working with Agile methods
- Strong ability in HTML 5, CSS 3, preprocessor (i.e. SCSS/SASS) and JavaScript
- Experience of integrating with back end platforms, comfortable with full stack development concepts
- Team working with GitHub, Grunt or other build and version control systems
