Front-End Engineer

full-time Kitt London

Welcome! We’re Kitt, a start-up in the commercial property space offering a new model to the office market that’s set to disrupt the industry. We’re on a mission to transform property into thriving workspaces that are optimised to help businesses grow. We’re also a well funded start-up in the early stages, backed by one of London’s major prop-tech investors. In addition we now have our Chairman - previous CEO of Fitness First.

We partner with landlords to provide our tenants with bespoke managed offices that they can call their own; using the latest technology to help digitise the space (such as facial recognition door entry, virtual receptionists, and VR viewings to name a few). We’re leading the charge in an unexplored segment of the market and hope that you can help us!

Kitt came about as our two co-founders realised the frustration in moving office space. They created a managed solution where Kitt do all of the work for our clients making an office move seamless. Our aim as a company is to “help real companies become a real business”.
