UX Designer / Researcher

The Company

We’re at a unique time in history when things like open banking, blockchain, and regulation are opening up and we’re building a next generation property platform.

If you’ve ever bought or sold a home before, you may well have gone through a ‘nightmare’ experience. In fact, it unfortunately tops the list for life’s unsettled experiences, ahead of divorce and losing your job. We believe it doesn’t have to be that way. Imagine if you could buy or sell a home in a much more streamlined way that you control? So much so that you’ll feel freer to move around from home to home with more fluidity and less fear. We call this the Settled way.

We’re building a team of pioneers who want to connect the dots in a way that no one’s attempted before. To transform an age-old problem and leave us in a Settled state of mind.

Our Team

Settled is a team of creative thinkers who are driven by bringing about a world with less complexity. Led by a former Google exec, Settled is venture capital backed by firms including: 500 startups, Piton Capital and Connect Ventures.
