"Being a dev here is highly rewarding"


You can make an impact on a relatable product, and you can directly see the results of your decisions. You also get to order your own mochi for the office too!

  • Have you received funding?

    We run OpenRent at a profit, but also have backing from some of the largest VCs in the world. As such, we have an extremely solid foundation to build from.

  • What will I be working on?

    In a broad sense, whatever is best for our users - but the direction comes from our developers and core team. From utilising our massive data set and machine learning to improve the experience on site, to building a greenfield solution for a new product, or simply iterating our current product - we're building a scalable, lovable platform for millions of people.

  • Do you offer remote working?

    We currently have a hybrid office policy with 2 set office days per week (Tuesday and Thursday). We encourage new starters to be office based for their initial training and onboarding period so they can be supported by fellow team members.

  • How quick is the application & hiring process?

    Once you have submitted your CV and cover letter, if successful, we will aim to get back to you within 1 week for an introductory call, which is usually followed by an in person interview at our office in Brixton. This varies depending on role but we try to keep interview processes as straightforward as possible!

  • What's OpenRent's company culture like?

    Our team, now close to 50 strong, thrives on collaboration. Everyone works closely together and is aware of what others are working on. Communication is quick and easy, creating minimal barriers to progress. Each person plays a vital role and takes on many responsibilities. Having a substantial impact on our work here at OpenRent is very rewarding.
