At Zoopla we want to help everyone make intelligent home buying decisions. We are building a team that will have the once in a career opportunity to re-imagine our industry.

It`s an exciting time for us on the frontend as we`re redeveloping our whole site to a unified responsive design served by a new Node.js / Express / Handlebars architecture. Our platform is built on Amazon Web Services and utilises Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery.

Why Zoopla…

  • We're serious about tech but we don't take ourselves too seriously.
  • We are spiritually agile, not religiously agile.
  • We strongly believe in the value of good design. We believe it is a primary differentiator in an increasingly crowded marketplace.
  • We believe in the value of data. We run a team that is data informed. We think being data-driven is soulless and dangerous. Clean, confident, clear data combined with the insights of the team is what drives our decisions.
  • We want to build small, collaborative, cross-functional teams that push each other to create elegant, simple solutions to difficult customer problems.
  • No matter what the role we want everyone to be obsessed with getting inside the minds of our customers.
