Job description

Our team is passionate about creating world-class apps (like this, this and this) and we want you to make us even better. If this sounds like it might fit what you’re looking for too, read on, and get in touch.


Manager of One

Great people should be empowered to be great. We’re looking for someone who wants to make big things and shape how they’re built.

This role materially shapes the products, platforms and features that our award-winning team will produce.



We work within numerous levels of mid-to-large companies. It takes a strong relational range to connect with Directors, VPs and C-suites alike. We want someone that can read a room, relate to different people and discern what matters to each of their roles when communicating solutions.
