The Opportunity

JLL’s Digital Business Group is where real estate disruption is born. We build new businesses whose intent is to change the industry landscape through- applying new technologies and models to open up new markets, changing the way existing needs are met and generating break-out growth and profits.

The Digital Business Group is a collection of wholly owned tech based subsidiaries where each is focused on a compelling opportunity. The Digital Business Group portfolio team envisions, plans and launches these new tech ventures. Each effort is aligned to a corporate strategy but operates independently and is organized outside day-to-day JLL operations to ensure they maintain an agile start up environment.

This is about as exciting as it gets. We are part of an amazing corporate organization in an industry in the middle of transformation. We have legions of excited customers asking for the type of disruption we deliver. In short, we have a huge opportunity. Join us in capturing it.
