Overview

Ever wondered how it would be to revolutionise one of the least digitised industries in the market, alongside a growing and switched-on team? Read on! 
_______________________________________________________________________________

We are Shape.Construction! 

We are digitising the largest and most fundamental industry in the world, the industry that literally builds the foundations of the civilisation we all depend on to spare us from a brutal hunter-gatherer life: CONSTRUCTION
It is one of the least digitised industries in the world but also the largest – 1 in 9 people globally work in the construction industry and it constitutes 11% of global GDP.
Improving construction strengthens the very foundation of human civilisation. (Watch our short film about it).
We got our start as a high-end construction project management consultancy. As a consultancy, we are focused on genuinely upgrading the way construction projects are delivered. We then take the deep understanding of the projects we work on to develop construction management software products that anyone can use to deliver their projects better.
We are building a full suite of products one module at a time – kind of like office 365 but for construction management. (Check out Shape, our construction management tech and watch this video about what we are doing)
The core of all this is our true secret sauce; people. We only recruit the very best both in capability and personality. We are deeply focused on designing a new type of organisation that is optimised for the flourishing of the people in the team first and foremost. People that join us develop fast as a whole person in ways they never imagined. (Read more about our vision and mission).
This approach has allowed us to grow from just 2 people in 2017 to over 170 today (including consultancy) and we are still very much at the beginning! Joining us isn’t just some “job”, it is a transformative educational experience. We challenge you to be your best self in all aspects of life.

Our vision is designed to align how we operate with the fundamental aspects that enable anyone to have a fulfilled life: 

– Connects us with meaningful relationships
– Inspires us to develop ourselves to become better humans
– Empowers us to pursue our own learning adventures

4 core values for a good life 

We believe a life of human flourishing is all about meaningful relationships with others and challenging yourself to create a positive impact. Our four core values are grow yourself, care about people, execute to greatness and build civilisation. This philosophy goes much deeper and you can see more on our website.

We are achieving this vision through the following two missions:  

1. To fully digitise the construction of human civilisation
2. To create a new type of organisation that enables human flourishing while delivering a huge positive impact on society

Salary and Benefits 

Standard Stuff

– Competitive salary dependent on location and capability
– Paid Annual Leave 20 days in addition to 4 day weeks
– Private health insurance
– Discretionary bonus scheme for all team members

The Life-Changing Stuff 

– 4 Day Weeks: That’s right, 4 day weeks

With Shape, development is unbounded
