About Shape Construction

We are bringing our collective experience together to build the digital backbone of a construction organisation.

We are digitising the largest and most fundamental industry in the world, the industry that literally builds the foundations of the civilisation we all depend on to spare us from a brutal hunter-gatherer life: CONSTRUCTION

It is one of the least digitised industries in the world but also the largest – 1 in 9 people globally work in the construction industry and it constitutes 11% of global GDP.

Improving construction strengthens the very foundation of human civilisation.

We got our start as a high-end construction project management consultancy. As a consultancy, we are focused on genuinely upgrading the way construction projects are delivered. We then take the deep understanding of the projects we work on to develop construction management software products that anyone can use to deliver their projects better.

We are building a full suite of products one module at a time – kind of like office 365 but for construction management.

The core of all this is our true secret sauce; people. We only recruit the very best both in capability and personality. We are deeply focused on designing a new type of organisation that is optimised for the flourishing of the people in the team first and foremost. People that join us develop fast as a whole person in ways they never imagined.

This approach has allowed us to grow from just 2 people in 2017 to over 120 today (including consultancy) and we are still very much at the beginning! Joining us isn’t just some “job”, it is a transformative educational experience. We challenge you to be your best self in all aspects of life.

The Position

We are currently looking for senior/lead frontend developers who are really interested in pushing the limits of what a ReactJS PWA (Progressive Web App) can do.

The product you will be creating will be the digital backbone of a construction organization. It will be used by people who are building our roads, railways, buildings, power & water supplies. We are improving the civilisation we live in by digitizing the very process of building it!

Our platform is meant to be used out in the field, office, and board room. It will help people do their jobs by digitising workflows at the coalface and feeding information up to descriptive and predictive analytics.
