Do you want to work with us as a  Product Manager?

Your work has an incredible impact on the daily life of real estate agents and consumers alike. According to Peter, our Chief Product Officer, this is a unique opportunity to make a difference to all aspects of how real estate is bought, sold, rented, built and found in the Netherlands.

As a Product Manager, you are instrumental in achieving this goal by taking the right product decisions and inspiring your team.


Together with your truly cross-functional team, you own and drive our strategic roadmap. You work closely with your UX, Research, Marketing and Customer Success colleagues.
