Posted 9 days ago

EstimateOne is a team of 65 people (and growing) with a mission to better connect the commercial construction industry in Australia and abroad. We want to enable people to do more of the things that matter, and less of the things that don’t.

With 12 years in the game, we're both a profitable and fast growing business. We're the market leader in Australia & New Zealand and have recently expanded to the UK as well. Our Vision is for our platform to become the industry standard. 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.

Here at EstimateOne, we build our products collaboratively working in cross-functional teams. We draw from Lean product development and Design Thinking - which means we put our users first and work together rather than in silos.

About the role

We’re looking for a creative, friendly end to end Product Designer to join our team on an initial 3 month contract (and the potential to go permanent). You’ll contribute to the ongoing design and user experience of EstimateOne by participating in end to end design activities including user research, prototyping, user interface design, testing, synthesis and communicating design decisions to cross-functional teams.

You will be passionate about solving and identifying user problems and will be responsible for actively contributing to the ongoing design and user experience of EstimateOne by participating in design activities under the guidance of the Lead Designer.

What you will be doing

  • User research, prototyping, visualization, testing, analyzing, and communicating design decisions, documenting detailed interaction models and UI specifications.
  • With the collaboration and guidance of the wider design team, you will articulate and share design thinking, decisions and solutions with the organisation showing how a user will experience your solution using data, user insights, research, best practise etc
  • Collaborate with the design and product development teams to ensure project delivery meets deadlines and quality standards
  • Advocate for our users and promote human-centred design thinking across the organisation.

About you

You’ll be eager to get stuff done and deliver value for our customers as part of a cross-functional team.

You will be skilled at each stage of the design process with a focus on the needs of the customer, employing human-centred design principles to uncover appropriate solutions.


  • 3+ years working full-time in product design, UX design and research or interaction design
  • 2+ years experience working in Agile teams delivering SaaS products
  • Strong experience working collaboratively with PMs and Engineers to deliver end-to-end product design, from ideation to production.
  • You'll need to be able to WFH until we are allowed to return to our office in Richmond, Melbourne.
  • We are flexible about hours. You don't have to work full time, although we'd love it if you did.
  • You'll need to be a great communicator and a fluent English speaker.
  • You'll need to be legally eligible to work in Australia and located in Melbourne.
  • Formal training/education is nice, but not a hard requirement (after all, our CEO dropped out of university after six weeks...)


Once you join and if you move into a ermanent role, we offer 1 week entrepreneurial leave and double any pre tax donation you make to a charity. We also offer a $5,000 development budget to spend on training or conferences as well as primary and secondary caregiver leave, volunteer leave and the opportunity to make a difference in a self managed cross functional team environment.

Oh, and every 7th week we spend half a day doing a fun activity to celebrate the work you've done over the 6 weeks of our cycle.
