We want to inspire the world to forecast correctly and empower it to tackle risk, thanks to our unique ability to forecast the outcomes of construction projects. We can change how construction projects are managed and executed, and will lead us to build the world’s largest infrastructure bank in the process. A crucial part of getting there is being able to deliver deep insights for very large construction schedules. In this role, you’ll be reporting to the co-founder CTO while working directly with our Tech, Design, and Commercial teams to help solve some of the most challenging problems facing the construction industry.
We’re working with some of the largest infrastructure projects in the world (think HS2, Heathrow, Crossrail), which means an opportunity to have significant impact on the world around us, and what it will look like in the future, from the very first day.
You’ll be joining a world class and very well funded team, backed by top investors and VCs from Silicon Valley and the UK that all believe in the future we are creating. We’ve been on a tremendous growth trajectory for the last three years, and have even more ambitious growth plans for 2021 and beyond, scaling product and team at an exciting pace. We won the hottest Proptech startup at the Europas in 2019, Forbes think we are 1 of 10 machine learning companies to look out for, and we recently picked up the best early stage company award at TechCrunch Disrupt. We think a lot of our success is due to our strong sense of culture.
The company’s strategy is heavily focused around product, with engineering squads (we use the Spotify model) that align directly to user needs, and have a lot of autonomy. We have Product Owners and designers that participate in a Product Strategy Group, and the Product Manager will be a significant leader of this group going forward, continuing the work that one of the founders has done in this area so far.
As our first Product Manager, you will have a heavy influence on what we do and why we do it. You will run point on extracting information from a limited, but highly engaged and extremely valuable set of users. Your every day will vary dramatically: It could start by reviewing detailed technical and mathematical descriptions of our technology and end by prioritizing user-centric outcomes. You will be solving challenging problems such as: how can we translate from a multi-layered distribution of fat tailed probabilities given by our ML models, into a metric which is easily legible, meaningful and valuable to our users?
You will report to our co-founder/CTO and work in very tight collaboration with very technical Data Science and Machine Learning teams, trying to convert “what is possible” into “what is valuable”.

We are still a small team so there is plenty of opportunity for a high degree of ownership over different areas of the product, and you will be directly exposed to all areas of the business.
Your voice will always be heard. What you do or say counts, not who you are or where you’re from.
We are a cross-disciplinary team, and come from all backgrounds and countries. We offer Visa sponsorship and contribute to relocation costs.
Fantastic benefits package for Health & Wellbeing, Learning & Development, family leave, weekly team lunches and more.
We are committed to addressing the diversity problem in the tech industry, and that starts with making sure we have a diverse team where everyone feels at home and can contribute as an equal.
Having time to yourself and a private life is important. We offer a very flexible work environment and a generous holiday policy.
