Estimator success

London, SW19

Who are we?

We’re a software company specialising in highly innovative construction industry estimating and tendering software.

Our flagship product, Countfire, has gained a fantastic reputation across the globe as an essential tool in the electrical estimating process and is the gold standard of automatic takeoff software.

What kind of person are we looking for?

Someone with estimating or construction industry experience, but who can't see themselves doing it forever. Or, maybe you've always been interested in software / computers / the tech industry and want to tap into everything this incredible industry offers.

A self-starter, with great verbal and written communication skills, and able to work within a dynamic and fast paced “startup” environment.

You'll be comfortable bringing new ideas to the table and able to prioritise and execute your workload without needing to be managed.

What's in it for you?

The potential for you to develop here is huge—especially as we grow.

  • Industry change —You’ll be able to help solve real, interesting and exciting problems within the tech industry.
  • Industry improvement —You’ll be in a position to change both the construction industry and how estimating itself is done via our existing and future product suite.
  • Increased pace of learning —You’ll benefit from a significant increase in the pace of learning. There are opportunities to work on problems across the business. You’ll learn something new every day and build an extremely valuable and future proof skill set.
  • Product development —You’ll learn how software products are developed and taken to market. Your knowledge and industry experience will be essential to the development process for our products.
  • Ground floor of tech company —As our 8th team member, you’ll be getting in on the ground floor of a growing tech company with a worldwide customer base and significant opportunities in the market. With your estimating experience, you’ll also be able to influence the design and implementation of Countfire’s products, and see first hand how product ideas and decisions change and improve our customer’s work lives.

What will you get from us?

In return for your hard work and dedication you will get all the good stuff such as flexible working (many of us work from home at least once a week, your birthday off, paid for gym membership, 25 days holiday but more importantly you will get the opportunity to bring your creativity into a team of people who are open to new ideas and not afraid to implement them.

What is the role?

With your experience in the industry we would be looking for you to bring that expertise to all of our interactions with our customers, from initial enquiry, through the pre-sales process, during the trial period, onboarding and the ongoing relationship. Our customers tend to stay with us for years once they are entrenched with us and your expertise will ensure they are successful with all of our products.

Being a SaaS (software as a service) business means that signing up a new user is just the start of our relationship with them. It’s up to us to prove the value of our products to them as estimators, and also their business.

Our growth is reliant on building a solid base of customers who regularly use our products and have adopted our software to the point that it’s essential to the success of their business.

With that in mind, ensuring the estimators who use our products know how to use them properly, get significant value from them and are ultimately more successful in their own roles by doing so, is vital to our success as a business.

"The product saves time, money and resources. Countfire staff are always there 24/7. Great company with a great product."
