About goodlord

Who we are

Anyone who has rented a home knows just how bad the process can be. Painful paperwork, endless expense and not a bit, byte, or nibble of technology in sight.

Goodlord is transforming the rental process for tenants, estate agents and landlords. We provide a secure cloud-based platform incorporates everything from contract generation, e-signing and referencing, to insurance. This technology creates a better way to rent. For everyone.

For tenants, it provides the customer experience generation rent expects and makes moving house simple, rather than stressful.

For estate agents, it gives them time back to focus on making deals and providing a great customer experience, without them having to worry about paperwork or compliance.

For landlords, it helps protect their investment with services like rental protection insurance.

We're backed by the team behind Zoopla, Lovefilm, and Onefinestay. Our team has attracted talent from organisations like Google, McKinsey and other successful startups and scaleups from across the London tech scene.

What we're looking for

We believe that extraordinary companies are built by extraordinary people. The Goodlord company culture is progressive. We want to create a place where every Goodlordian feels comfortable bringing their whole self to work. We care about delivering great products and continuously improving our customer experience. Together we're revolutionising the way the world moves home, and we're looking for remarkable people to join us on our journey.

A bit about our interview process

Our interview process begins with an introductory call to help you better understand the opportunity, and give us a glimpse into your interests and your background - more than you can pick up from a CV or a short biography. From there, we'll invite you to come and meet a few different people from within the Engineering and Product team and beyond (we work closely with our stakeholders, so we think its key you meet some of the wider Goodlordian team.) Our onsite interviews assess technical skills, but we also ask a range of situational and behavioural competency based questions about the other things that matter to us - whether you'd thrive in an environment like Goodlord's, and how you work in a team. The goal is to gain a holistic understanding of what you bring to the team and where you shine, and we want to set you up for success, not subject you to an ordeal. There'll also be plenty of opportunity to ask all your interviewers a lot of questions so you can get a good understanding of whether Goodlord will be good for you.
