OpenRent is the way people rent property online. Our platform empowers landlords and tenants to arrange successful tenancies quickly, cheaply, and efficiently. We’re dedicated to fixing an industry tarnished by rip-off agencies. Thanks to an unrelenting focus on technology and the customer experience, we now let more properties than any high street agency in the UK and continue to grow rapidly.
Although we’ve grown our user base to a vast 1.8 million users, we’re very much of the startup mindset – a close-knit team of around 20 looking to transform an industry and have fun while we’re doing it. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a small team who are having a huge impact and building a household name brand.
ABOUT THE ROLE
Core Team members respond to customer queries (email / SMS / phone) and work to optimise our customer service processes. They also manage relationships with our many suppliers and work directly with our developers to make changes to our product – if you can demonstrate that something is worth building or changing, then you’ll have the power to do something about it.

- Gain extensive industry knowledge and a deep understanding of the OpenRent product.
- Start suggesting improvements to our product and service.
Within 6 months, you’ll…
- Be empowered to improve team processes and customer service operations as needed.
