Having a new house is great. Getting a new house isn’t. It's a big life moment and can be complicated and scary for all of us.

That's why we’re on a mission to remove risk so people can move fearlessly. We use tech, design and data to make dealing with clients secure and friction-free for lawyers and professional services across the property sector.

Since our co-founders, Jack and Olly, founded Thirdfort in 2017, we’ve grown from a single London office to an amazing, international team of over 90 with team members also in Manchester and Sri Lanka. We are backed by big-hitting investors, including Alex Chesterman (Founder of Zoopla and Cazoo), leading law firm Mishcon de Reya and HM Land Registry. We already work with over 550 property and legal businesses to help streamline their processes and keep security top of mind, and we're growing. We're serious and we're ambitious. Come join us.

The role

We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to join our engineering team and contribute across all areas of our stack. You will be helping build out our back end working with APIs and advanced data structures, and contributing towards developing our beautiful front end web portal.

The role will be mainly office based (when the Covid situation improves), as we want you to be part of all the conversations within the team, but we offer very flexible hours and the possibility to work from home sometimes.

About Thirdfort

Help us fundamentally change the existing property buying and selling experience which is needlessly stressful, risky and inefficient. This isn’t just consumer pain; property lawyers, estate agents and mortgage brokers manually input data many times over and have very little visibility over what’s going on.

We address these challenges with a consumer facing App and professional facing web portal. We leverage Open Banking, electronic ID checking, data analytics and AI to streamline much of the front-end transaction admin and radically improve the lawyer and client experience. Long term we'll become the trusted transaction platform for the sector.

Our first version of the platform is focused on property lawyers and has reduced the time it takes for them to onboard new clients from 20 days to 5.

Tech stack

We have native IOS & Android mobile apps which are the key consumer facing interface. We also have a detailed web portal that is used by the lawyers and estate agents in the UK (built in React). We are cloud hosted and have a JSON REST API backend (primarily Node.js and GO), microservices architecture and cryptographically secure sensitive data storage.

What we're looking for:

  • Be able to demonstrate enthusiasm for coding
  • Good understanding of software engineering principles (data structures, searching and sorting algorithms, etc)
  • You have relevant work experience, not necessarily with the same tech stack.
  • Flexible, lean and nimble approach to building software
  • Customer centric and work well with product owners
  • Can work with or can quickly get comfortable with: React, Go, Node.js, Kubernetes, Git.
  • Great communicator and decision maker that understands the commercial impact of technical and design decisions.
  • Humble worker, strong team player and knows how to get the best out of others
  • Wisdom - Strong opinions weakly held. The ability to argue your corner but give it up easily when consensus is against you even if you're right
