We're EstimateOne, an Australian born SaaS platform and one of AFR’s 2022 Best Places to Work in Australia and NZ. Headquartered in Richmond, Melbourne, our ambition is to become the global industry standard procurement platform in the commercial construction industry.

We’re the market leaders in Australia & NZ, and now we are growing the size of our team (currently 90), so that we can extend our product offering and enter new markets. We recently secured $20M in new investment to support our strategy, so it’s a really exciting time to be joining us.

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.

Our established scaleup vibe keeps things lively. 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’re passionate about transparent and fair expectations and results and we have a commitment to wellness and happiness that you’ll really feel.

The role

We’re on a growth journey that saw our Engineering team double in size over the last 18 months, and we want you to help us continue to shape that. This is an exciting role that will see you as a custodian of the platform's data; in a position to move the needle on customer satisfaction.

As a Senior Data Engineer you'll be leading and proactively designing, building, and nurturing our new Data Platform. You will measure your success by the outcomes that your team achieves. We bring engineers into the conversation early and it's everyone's responsibility to think big-picture and be strategic.

We're looking for smart people who are keen to collaborate - it's that simple. The ability to champion our values matters to us; we care about our team and you'll be joining a group of people who want each other to be happy and successful.

As a Senior Data Engineer in our Infrastructure Team, you will:

  • Be responsible for designing, building and nurturing the data platform.
  • Coach and mentor engineering teams to help them push data into the data platform.
  • Support data scientists and data analysts in the consumption of data from the data platform.
  • Work with product managers to ensure data ownership and governance is in place and clear.

About the platform

We’re building out a brand new data platform on AWS and we’re just beginning the journey. The vision is to have a data mesh architecture where teams who produce the data, own the data and the data team is responsible for providing the platform to enable this.

We’re looking to use AWS services such as S3, Glue, Lake Formation, Athena and DMS as the base of the data platform.

About You:

  • You’ve worked with modern data platforms and have deep knowledge of data pipelines, data lakes and tools such as AWS Glue, Athena, etc.
  • You’re well versed in writing Infrastructure as Code (IaC) using tools such as Terraform and Cloudformation.
  • You’re passionate about data engineering and analytics.
  • You’re eager to build a culture where making data available in the platform is built into the product engineering process.
  • You’re a confident advocate for building data into products.
  • You’re skilled in teaching others how to produce and consume data from the platform.
  • You’re pragmatic around how to build a solution.

The ability to champion our values matters to us; we care about our team and you'll be joining a group of people who want each other to be happy and successful. If you’re a motivated, self-starter and user-orientated person with experience in growing a company and designing products in a construction technology space, we need you in our team.


There’s more to working at EstimateOne than just creating game changing technology for the construction industry. We know that to reach the lofty goals we set ourselves we need to look after our team, our shareholders and the industry we serve. These are just a few of the things we offer:
