The Business

They're an award-winning, global company who are completely revolutionising what they do - I really can't stress how cool their transformation is and this is a one-off opportunity to shape and build their brand-new product offerings. At present their solutions are heavily customised, but they are looking to build a core product offering of Construction related Oracle Cloud solutions, so we are looking for someone with relevant industry experience covering surveying, subcontractor management, contract delivery or project delivery.


You will have the desire to transfer your skills and knowledge from the construction industry to figurehead a new role in business software. You will be able to translate and articulate your experience into documented requirements for system solutions - ultimately to improve the world you know from a business process perspective. You will work closely with former peers in the construction industry and will meet such clients in a pre-sales context, to build the software credibility whilst discussing software capabilities versus their needs. As highlighted above you will enjoy being the Construction expert in a software company and be able to translate and analyse these processes into workable solutions.

As such you will be integral in developing the product roadmap for a suite of Construction related Software products and will have a lot of fun and pride in doing so. You will be user centred in your approach with a great appreciation of client needs and be keen to deliver for some amazing customers. An understanding of Construction Software - Coins, Integrity Software, Eque2, Propman, Qube or MRI would be a huge advantageous but at the very least you will take a proactive interest in the latest trends and appreciate of the market as a whole.

You will be enthusiastic, have a passion for innovation with exceptional communication and stakeholder management skills - as you will closely with cross functional teams and may also get involved in some Pre Sales activities where you can show off some of the stuff that's been built.
