June 30, 2022


ABOUT LANDTECHLandTech empowers property developers to build the places that communities need to thrive. 90% of 200 top global cities have a housing crisis 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. Who We AreAt 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 unpaid 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.
