    • Help build an environment and culture centred around:
    • Independence and proactiveness
    • Working end to end on business problems in collaboration with other departments

We are IMMO. Here to revolutionize the real estate industry, for consumers and investors alike.

Residential real estate is the biggest asset class in the world and the market in Europe is worth an estimated $50 trillion. It’s a huge untapped market, but it’s also completely fragmented! 

Homeowners wrestle with huge fees and uncertain processes when they want to sell. Tenants struggle to find high-quality homes and often deal with unsympathetic landlords. Financial institutions can’t invest large pools of money into the sector without hiring an army of disparate third parties. And to complicate matters further, building new homes churns out gigatons of carbon, all whilst we face a housing crisis and a global climate emergency.

IMMO is Europe's first technology powered and fully integrated residential real estate platform, designed to create portfolios of existing single family rental (SFR) and multifamily housing (MFH). Our proprietary technology allows us to unlock investment access to 98% of the residential market currently being overlooked, at scale and speed.
At the same time, we offer better solutions to consumers – empowering homeowners with quick and transparent sales, and providing a next-gen renting experience for our residents to enjoy living in beautiful homes.
With technology in our DNA, data is at the heart of decision making, and we do things sustainably by up-cycling existing properties that are responsibly retrofitted.
Among our investors are some of the world’s top venture capital firms. IMMO has been awarded “Tech Pioneer” by the World Economic Forum and has been titled “Real Estate Asset Manager of the Future” by Goldman Sachs.

We are 170+ strong with experienced professionals working across Capital Investment, Technology, Business Functions and Operations.

IMMO exists to solve a fundamental human need: We aim to create and scale a residential ecosystem that is socially responsible, safe, well-managed, and fairly priced. We’re funded by institutional investors and supported by diverse, globally distributed teams in the UK, Germany, Spain, and India.
To further our mission, we’re looking for creative problem solvers who would like to develop the next big innovation within the real estate industry.
We believe in creating a workplace where every employee is valued, respected, and provided with equal opportunities for growth and advancement, regardless of their race, gender, or any other personal characteristic.
