London, England, United Kingdom · Tech - Data


Senior Data Engineer

Be part of the team building one of the defining start-ups of our generation, and using technology to fix the housing market and solve a problem affecting a large fraction of all property sales.

This is a senior role and you'll bring with you experience in reliable data-processing & engineering best practices

Who we are

Nested is a London based company rebuilding the process of selling your home from the ground up, by offering an advance which allows the seller to become chain free and start buying their new home before they've sold the old one.

We also believe in continually learning from each other and from what we do, for example, through weekly learning sessions. It'd be short-sighted to stick with whatever was in our heads when we all started at Nested - to achieve what we're trying to do requires a lot more than that.

What would you be working on

We think you’ll probably:
