Orbital Witness is a PropTech-meets-LegalTech startup aiming to become the universal risk rating for real estate transactions - an ‘Experian for land and property’. We are backed by leading seed stage tech (LocalGlobe, Seedcamp) and PropTech focused (Outward VC, JLL Spark) venture capital and have just completed our latest investment round.
We’re a growing team of driven, talented individuals from a diverse set of backgrounds. We work collaboratively to build a valuable product for our customers in some of the largest companies in the legal, property and insurance sectors (examples: Clifford Chance, Slaughter & May, TfL, Stewart Title, etc). We enjoy delighting our users and exploring new technologies to deliver a fantastic product in these traditional industries.
There is a fundamental problem with the way the world’s largest asset class is transacted. Whether you’re a homebuyer or a private equity real estate fund, lender or developer, you have to incur the time and cost of legal searches and due diligence to understand a property before you can complete a transaction. With every other aspect of the technical stack of a real estate professional starting to be automated (from valuation models to site sourcing), the legal portion of a real estate transaction is the final process to be disrupted.
Our mission is to help anyone involved in a property transaction to properly understand what they are getting into, from the outset, without incurring legal fees.
Humility - Disrupting an industry takes courage. So does admitting when we don't know something or need help. We’re unafraid to listen, ask questions and we don't let ego get in the way.
Bold and ambitious - There is no blueprint for what we are building. We learn and adapt continuously, we are at ease with uncertainty, and we act decisively even where there is risk.
Empowerment - Founded by first time founders, we believe in giving talented people a platform to deliver their best work.
As an early stage startup with ambitious growth plans, we recognise the need for sustainable pace in order to achieve the long term vision. We work hard and we measure success on team goals, not the clock, and we care deeply about making our workplace a friendly, flexible, and supportive environment where everyone can learn and develop.
