Description

About us

We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, landlord and tenant. We knew generation rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution.

And we did. Like all startups it’s been a bit of a roller coaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with over 400 happy customers and exciting new products. We have ambitious plans for 2019 but with Mr William Reeve at the helm alongside co-founder Tom Mundy, CTO Donovan Frew and a brilliant team of over 75 talented Goodlordians we're confident we’ll achieve these.

Our values guide our decisions, the way we work, our culture and the people we ask to join the team. We work hard, have fun and support each other. We’re not afraid to make mistakes (we’d never learn if we didn’t) and we’re always looking to challenge ourselves. Our style is collaboration based on honesty, friendship and respect.

About the team that drives our platform

We're a PropTech start-up about to go into Series C funding. We’ve created a revolutionary, cloud-based software platform to bring together agents, landlords and tenants online and process all the paperwork electronically.

Our small, self-organising squads build the platforms and tools to help us achieve our mission. We're disrupting an industry, so there's plenty of thorny, real-world problems to solve on behalf of the agents, landlords and tenants that use our system.

If you want to develop new skills, there'll be plenty of opportunities: many of our current team joined as back-end or front-end developers, and are now working across the full stack. We are keen advocates of agile delivery; we work closely with our stakeholders and use Kanban to iterate quickly on customer feedback. You'll be learning every day, from the team around you and senior members of the team who you'll have daily exposure to.

The tech we use

The application comprises a PHP (7.3) app that communicates with a number of internal (Scala) and third party services via HTTP. Our UI is a mixture of jQuery and React (using Typescript) and we’re actively pushing to have everything in React.

The app and all services are deployed in Docker containers running in a Kubernetes cluster on AWS.

We use Github for version control and Circle CI for building, testing and deploying code to the staging and production environments. All data is persisted in a MYSQL (AWS Aurora) database.

About the role

Our mission is to provide the best renting experience in the world and you'll play a key part in helping us achieve this by making sure our platforms is best in class.

No two days are ever the same at Goodlord so what you’ll be up to will vary. The pace we move at also means priorities will change and you’ll need to be comfortable with this (we’ll support you!). But these are the things that will be core to your role and will keep you busy.
