OUR MISSION

90% of the 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 eight 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…

Put simply, our mission is, “Create an open land market to unlock its potential for everyone.”

We operate in an open, collaborative and cross-functional environment, solving difficult problems for our customers. We empower teams and individuals to build, deliver and operate high quality technical solutions to help our customers, and we're proud of our work!

The Product team at LandTech is made of Designers and Product Managers who share some core values. We’re curious, we have a passion for deeply understanding our users’ needs and we’re determined to deliver high quality user experiences. We do a lot of research to figure out what matters to our users, determine which problems we want to solve and in what order. Once we’ve honed in on a problem we work collaboratively to design and test the solution, build and launch it.

  • Plan and lead structured user testing sessions to validate your overarching solutions as well as the fine detail of the UI/UX.
  • Produce high fidelity designs and prototypes to communicate the final designs to Engineering.
  • As features are being built, work with a highly collaborative cross-functional team to steer the execution from a UI and UX perspective.
