Put simply, we’re a SaaS company headquartered in Melbourne, Australia whose ambition is to become the industry standard procurement platform in the commercial construction industry. In the last year more than 94,000 organisations have used our platform to tender over 14,000 projects worth a total of $137 billion! We’re the market leaders in Australia & NZ, and now we are expanding our reach so that we can extend our product offering and enter new international markets.

At EstimateOne, we believe that by looking after our whole ecosystem of users, and balancing the needs of our team, our shareholders and the industry, we can achieve our vision to become a global leader in construction technology; famous for the positive impact on the industry we serve. To do that we'll need to make sure we're unlocking value from what we've already built while also inventing new stuff. It's equal parts optimisation and innovation.

Having successfully raised capital from outside investors at the end of 2021, we’re looking to double our team size and launch our product in the UK, while maintaining our established startup vibe. We’ve come a long way in 14 years, and seeing what we’ve achieved in that time, get’s us pretty excited for the next 14.

We are seeking a talented Senior Business Development Manager to drive opportunity through our emerging data and reporting products for our Supplier audience. You’ll lead our largest supplier customers through the detail and opportunity of data in providing deeper levels of insights on projects in the marketplace.

  • Record insights from pitches, phone conversations, and events, to feed into the CRM and back to key stakeholders
  • Support the creation of new customer accounts and facilitate training on the fundamentals of our free service
  • Work closely with our Customer Success Team to ensure rapid onboarding of their new reporting and adat purchase

About You
