Company Overview

LandTech empowers property developers to build the places that communities need to thrive.

The UK is in the middle of a housing shortage 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 sight sourcing and assessment, and we’re a multi-million-pound business carving a path to international success.

At 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 remote-first, flexible working and unlimited holiday 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. We’re just focused on being a great place to work, but we’re happy to have picked up some awards along the way:

  • Winner of the UK Customer Experience - Employee Empowerment Awards 2020
  • Winner at the UK Employee Experience Awards - Employee Engagement 2020
  • Top 10 SaaS Companies to work for - Sales Confidence, 2018 & 2019
  • Excellence in People Development - PropTech, 2018
  • Fastest-growing Business - PropTech, 2018
