Senior Product Manager Emma, values the flexibility at EstimateOne which enables her to spend quality time with her daughter each Wednesday.

Here’s a little from Emma herself!

Hi, I’m Emma and I’m a Senior Product Manager within our Supplier audience team. Suppliers being those organisations that provide goods and materials to be used in completing the construction of a building.

In my role I work closely with the General Manager for Supplier to determine our audience and product strategy, and build out our roadmap and OKRs to achieve this in collaboration with the broader cross-functional Supplier team. I also work really closely with our Engineering Manager and Product Designer to identify the key customer problems we need to solve and how we should best solve these.  The value I add for our customers comes from putting ‘cranes before code’, and understanding the needs of our customers and the key problems they’re trying to solve at different levels in their organisation, and how myself and the Supplier team can best solve these. 

I joined the EstimateOne team in November 2021, so I’ve been here 4 months so far, but feel a solid part of the team already, very much due to the warm welcome and openness of the team to share their wealth of knowledge about the construction industry with me.

I’ve worked in various product management roles over the last 10 years, my most recent role was as Lead Product Manager at Culture Amp, before that I worked at InspectRealestate and the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, and I started my product career at realestate.com.au where I spent 6 amazing years learning from some of the best in the business.

Why did you choose EstimateOne?

I wasn’t actually looking for a new role at the time, but I had the opportunity to read Nuts and Bolts and I was hooked! Seeing the inspiring vision, clarity of strategy, and values that resonated strongly with me, I HAD to find out more about the organisation and role. I had an amazing recruitment experience, the recruiter was so friendly and responsive in letting me know what was happening, and the leaders that I had my interviews with all gave me positive and constructive feedback at the end of the chat, which I’ve never experienced in any other interview, and found very valuable. An early reflection of the open and transparent feedback culture at E1 that is not just talked about, but actually happens!

The top 3 things I love about working here are:

The Culture – I know it’s cliche but the culture at E1 is really amazing! A group of down to earth, super friendly people, but all very ambitious and passionate about making a difference for our customers, business and the construction industry as a whole. The level of collaboration across functions to make this happen is something I haven’t experienced in previous roles. It makes coming to work everyday a delight!

Leadership – for a small organisation we pack a significant punch with our SLT and Executive team, with their knowledge and expertise from other tech companies and direct construction industry experience. It’s great to have these people to lean on and learn from.

Opportunity – I feel that there is so much opportunity for us in the industry and the value that we can deliver to our customers, we’re only just scratching the surface! It’s really exciting to improve existing features and drive acquisition and retention, but also to experiment and learn with how we can use our wealth of data to assist customers with their strategic and business planning.

My advice to something considering EstimateOne for their next job:

I can’t recommend EstimateOne enough – the amazing culture, the strength of our team and leaders that you can learn and grow with, the values that are lived and breathed every day, the opportunity to have an impact in connecting and delivering value to all involved in the construction industry!
