Nested is hiring a

Senior Data Engineer

London, United Kingdom

Who we are:

Nested is redefining estate agency in the UK. For too long, sellers have been subjected to unresponsive agents and broken processes. With a combination of groundbreaking technology and expert local agents, Nested is fixing the whole moving experience one problem at a time.

Today, estate agents get away with doing half a job, getting a seller under offer before leaving them to navigate the rest of the process by themselves. Nested is built for movers, the first estate agent to support both the selling and buying process, for no extra fee. We can even make sellers chain-free, with our groundbreaking cash advance securing their ideal home before they sell.

We are a pioneering team, backed by Europe’s top VCs and led by an experienced, hands-on founding team. We're all contributing remotely to build a new era for home movers, with plans to optionally work from home 3 days of the week in the future when we can spend some time in our Farringdon office again. When work is over, there’s always been plenty of socialising, from film nights to sports days or more socially distanced activities in the park.

If redefining an entire industry is something that motivates you, come and join the team at Nested.

The data team:

Our team mission is that data is a superpower for Nested, from powering our customer-facing digital products through to enabling a data-led organisation. We’re a small cross-functional team (engineers & analysts) looking to have an outsized impact for Nested. Our goal is to be a trusted partner for driving new insights and commercial opportunities, and to empower our users (customers and colleagues) to make the best possible choices.


We’re looking for an experienced software/data engineer with a keen interest in data and data-processing technologies, to help us fix the broken process of buying and selling homes in the UK. You’ll be joining the data team at an exciting juncture, focusing on:

  • Modern technologies: our team works within a modern, modular data stack using GCP infrastructure, and follow software engineering best practices
  • Enabling self-serve: For our customers to make the right choices, they need to be data-led. Our self-serve data platform enables this, and our data engineers take responsibility for the reliable and timely ELT processes and data pipelines which sit behind our Looker platform.
  • Building product capabilities: our data engineers work closely with product engineering teams to understand data requirements in our digital products, and turn these requirements into a delivered solution
  • Having a big impact: the success of our data engineers and our team is the business value we create, which means focusing on impactful areas and problems

The candidate:

  • You enjoy getting to grips with product needs and devising the simplest solution you can to them
  • You care about impact and working on the things which will ‘move-the-needle’ and make a startup successful
  • You enjoy working with data (we are language agnostic but use Python and SQL here)
  • You create an environment of great engineering practices (think testing and documentation)
  • You're empathetic and act on that to create a safe environment which cultivates growth in those within it
  • You have a growth mindset yourself
  • It’s helpful, but not required, if you have hands-on experience working with data infrastructure and tooling (you can see a full list of what we use in our stackshare)
  • It’s helpful, but not required, if you know a bit of statistics or machine learning


  • Great salary, with regular performance reviews
  • Generous options grant
  • 4% employer pension contribution
  • Private health insurance with gym discounts & more
  • 27 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Work From Home 3 days a week, and flexible working hours
  • £1,000 personal development budget per year
  • Generous maternity and paternity packages
  • Kitchen stocked with breakfast, coffee and snacks, & catered Friday lunches including dietary options
  • Monthly team social events

We are striving to build a diverse and inclusive team, but we recognise there is always more to be done. In the last year, we’ve focused on running workshops in collaboration with tech bootcamps, promoting self-education through our anti-racism reading list, sponsoring work visas and building diversity into the engineering growth framework. If you would like to talk to us about these efforts, or have suggestions for how we can do better, we would love to hear from you.

Nested is proud to be an equal opportunities employer: At Nested we embrace diversity and see it as a benefit to our company.
