We are looking for a programmer / “hacker” / software developer – someone who can deliver new software solutions to users daily, thrives on problem solving challenges, and is passionate about solving real-world problems.

You will be joining a small, focused team of problem solvers, working directly with our tech-focused founders. That means a company that understands programmers, and knows how to deliver quality software. Being a small team means we can move quickly, and get lots done.

With a ban on admin fees, and a focus on fairness, OpenRent is a force for good in an industry often tarnished by rip-off agencies. With an unrelenting focus on technology, we now let more properties than any other agency in the UK. Operating nationwide, there are over 1.2 million OpenRenters – the opportunity is huge and we continue to grow rapidly, breaking new records every month. OpenRent is very much of the startup mindset, a close-knit team looking for stellar growth and to transform an industry. When you make a change to the OpenRent code base, you’re affecting the real lives of millions of tenants and landlords across the UK – this is a job with a big impact, and big reward.

We expect everyone at OpenRent to have a good understanding of product, dive into customer development issues, and come up with simple / novel / unique (whatever fits the requirement) solutions to the problems our users face every day. We’re revolutionising the lettings industry, and it takes constant creative thinking and problem solving to do that effectively.

As an engineer, you’ll be expected to turn these solutions into code, and not only deliver on the promise of turning a problem into a solution, but into something that seems obvious once it becomes used by millions of people nationwide.

Before OpenRent, it was normal to rent a property by visiting the high street, signing paperwork in an office, and paying crazy high fees – not so any more – and now we’re working on re-shaping the industry so that in 5 years it’s barely recognisable from where we are today.

- Core hire into our development team

- Industry experience preferred but not necessary. Happy to work with a smart, focused, and eager to learn graduate.

- Early hire into the development team – have a huge impact on how we write code.

- C# competency a must

- Opportunity to craft a role to your desire, and make company wide decisions

- Dedicated to the cause of dramatically improving the rental market


- Monthly team events

- Weekly team (free!) lunches

- Holidays encouraged (seriously)

- Flexible working hours

- Free office drinks + snacks

- Build your own machine (if desired!)

- The genuine ability to add to this list...

We are looking for superstars (like you!) to join the company, help us take over the industry, and share in our success.


Why is the salary band so wide?

We’re looking for great developers – that means a mix of people with experience from other top startups / companies, and those with fewer years in industry. The wide salary band reflects that.

Where are your dev team based?

In Brixton, London. We’re close to the tube (Victoria line), which has great transport links across London, as well as lots of good places for lunch (our main concern).

Have you received funding?

We run OpenRent at a profit, but also have backing from some of the largest VCs in the world. As such, we have an extremely solid foundation to build from.

What will I be working on?

In a broad sense, whatever is best for our users – but the direction comes from our developers and core team. From utilising our massive data set and machine learning to improve the experience on site, to building a greenfield solution for a new product, or simply iterating our current product – we’re building a scalable, lovable platform for millions of people
