Zoopla is set to hire 120 new employees in 2020 as part of “ambitious” plans to grow its business.
The new roles will include dozens of “highly skilled experts” in product development, software engineering and data analysis, reflecting the company’s “major” focus on innovation and product and technology.
Roles will also be created in teams throughout Zoopla including marketing, customer success and other business support functions.
Commenting on the new roles Charlie Bryant, Zoopla CEO, said: “We have ambitious growth plans for 2020 and the creation of 120 new roles will be vital to us meeting our goals of reinvigorating the home buying process and providing an even better experience for agents.
“While there have no doubt been improvements since the launch of portals we know customer expectations rightly always increase. This is why we believe the process of buying, selling or renting a home is one that could still benefit from both innovation and a renewed focus on improving the customer experience.”
He added: “These new hires will bolster the strong teams of property experts we already have across the UK and will help us build a truly unique offer for home hunters and agents alike.”
The new roles will primarily be based in Zoopla’s head office, a stone’s throw from Tower Bridge on the banks of the river Thames.
Founded in 2007, Zoopla is a property marketplace offering services to renters, buyers, sellers and landlords.
