We make innovative tech that's changing how communities and planners connect, forever

We're a technology company with a social mission to accelerate the development of smart, sustainable and people-focused places.

 

Between us we’ve mobilised tens of thousands of people to make changes to their neighbourhoods, creating new interactive digital experiences. 

We created PlaceBuilder to advance high-impact street environment changes with community support; we now work across planning use cases, using our platform PlaceBuilder, where it's imperative to integrate public opinion. We help our clients bring their communities closer, and empower citizens with the information they need to make informed choices.​

Join Our Team!

We’re a London-based GovTech/PropTech startup on a mission to accelerate the development of smart, sustainable and people-focused cities & places. Three years in, our SaaS is used at scale by two governments, and a range of public and private sector clients in the urban planning sector to engage communities meaningfully at scale; we are delivering at the cutting edge of the transformation of the UK planning system. We’re one of the only female-led companies in our market, and we’re excited to be growing the team. 

 

We are primarily a remote company, but we love to get together and connect in ‘real life’. We meet up once a month in London to brainstorm new ideas, collaborate and grab a drink. 

 

We are a small, growing team that is passionate about communities and our customers. We believe that PlaceBuilder is the key to empowering communities and giving planners insight into making great places that people love. If you’re excited by the potential of working on some of the most important projects in planning today and harnessing tech to create a more positive and sustainable future, we’d love to hear from you.
