Job Description

Goodlord’s mission is to make renting simple and transparent for everyone. Our aim is to remove the complications of the rental process, by eliminating the inefficiencies involved with renting. Our 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.

We recently closed a funding round at £7m led by Finch Capital with Rocket Internet and Global Founders Capital also contributing. The new funding will be used to build new products, grow our customer base, and invest in the further development of our technology platform.
