Zoopla, the UK’s most comprehensive property destination, has named the ninth most desirable employer brand in London in Hired’s Annual Brand Health Survey, a poll of 4,100 tech job hunters.
The Hired Brand Health Survey highlights the companies tech professionals most want to work for. Each of the respondents is asked to give a comprehensive insight into what they want in their next career opportunity, the industry leaders and local employers that catch their eyes, and the factors that influence their decision to take a new role.

Commenting on the results Dave Wascha, Zoopla’s Chief Product & Technology Officer, said: “We are working hard to meet our goal of revolutionising the property industry so we’re thrilled to have placed so highly in such a prestigious list. It’s increasingly clear that Zoopla is fast becoming an employer of choice for experts in technology, software and engineering, design and data who are looking for an exciting brand that can match their ambitions.
“Despite making great strides, the exciting thing is we still have plenty of challenging work ahead of us. This is why we’re looking for the best and brightest and have hired leaders from some of Europe’s most innovative companies to join us for a once-in-a-career opportunity to reinvent the way people buy, rent and sell property.”
Over the last year Zoopla has made a series of announcements about ambitious expansion plans in its Product & Technology teams as it seeks to develop an industry-leading platform for agents and homemovers. The company also announced in February that it had launched its first apprenticeship in Software Engineering, in conjunction with the Tech She Can Charter, with ten roles available. 70% of the roles were awarded to female candidates.
Founded in 2007, Zoopla is a successful, multi-tiered property business offering services to renters, buyers, sellers and landlords. The company returned to private ownership in July 2018 after a purchase by a group led by global private equity firm Silver Lake. Since the purchase a new leadership team has been implementing a focused strategy investing substantially in talent, technology, marketing and sales to help Zoopla enhance the service it offers consumers and to meet its ambitious growth plans.
