Plentific is one of the fastest-growing property technology companies in the UK, with offices in Germany and Turkey. Our mission is to improve lives by making housing and property work better for everyone.

We empower landlords and property managers with a platform to manage their properties. We utilise great local trade talent to create more jobs, build community cohesion and provide better services than ever before.

Since our humble beginnings in 2013, we’ve achieved a lot at Plentific:

  • We’re growing fast. We work with many of the biggest property providers in the UK.
  • Dramatically improved outcomes for housing providers, speeding up service delivery fivefold and creating economic opportunities within their local communities.
  • Set a new industry benchmark on responsive repairs by reducing typical time frames (20 days) to less than 4 days.
  • Recognised as ‘Deal of the Year - Residential’ at the UK PropTech Awards 2018,
  • Recognised as ‘Professional Services Partner’ at the UK Housing Awards 2019 and;
  • Repairs and Maintenance Provider of the Year at the 24Housing Awards 2019.
  • Entered partnerships with social enterprises such as Beam, with whom we help co-fund training for homeless people into trades jobs, and thus rebuild their lives.

2019 was an exciting year for Plentific - we were celebrated as leaders of transformative change - not just in our sector - but across business in the UK (UKBA Business Change/Transformation winner). Following a major funding round, we’re now expanding into the wider professional/commercial real estate sector in Europe, with plans to launch into the US multi-family market later this year.

We're a technology led business. We're proud to develop cutting-edge solutions for our customers, and that's only possible to do with a great team. Our culture is open. Empowering. Fast paced. If you're tenacious, passionate and driven, you'll fit right in.

The Role

We are looking for an experienced QA Engineer to join the engineering team test our functional and non-functional areas of our product solutions using both automation and manual techniques. You’ll be working alongside a highly technical and motivated team and report to the technical co-founder.

Our backend engineers mostly work with Python and Django on an increasingly more service-oriented architecture. The tech stack includes Django REST Framework, PostgreSQL, PostGIS, JavaScript (ES6, React.js, Alt.js, Node.js, Express), AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, Redis, Celery, Pandas, Numpy, Scrapy, Git (with Zenhub), Jenkins, Elasticsearch, Logstash and lots of raw SQL for analytics. We have a very large and clean code base as we put significant emphasis on design patterns, code readability, testability, maintainability and extendability.

  • Ensure all software is reliable, scaleable and quality

  • Passionate about designing test coverage and the creation of automated and manual tests
  • Experience of working with a variety of QA tools

  • Ability to think out of the box with a can-do attitude to get things done efficiently
  • Excellent communication skills with ability to articulate technical concepts in plain English
  • BSc (at least 2:1) essential in computer science, engineering, computational physics, mathematics or another field with strong computational curriculum. MSc/PhD in similar subjects desirable

Benefits

  • A competitive compensation package.
