We’re a team of passionate individuals, hell bent on making your life easier

Our team consists of diverse professionals from diverse backgrounds, but we all have one thing in common - we want to make great user experiences, and have fun whilst we’re doing it.

Our Team

  • Hey, I'm Andrew.... although most call me Ritchie. I co-founded EstimateOne with Mike, and currently serve as CEO. I'm passionate about improving the lives of our customers, helping them do a great job at work, and helping them leave on time to spend time with their families. Before EstimateOne, I worked at a bank. Needless to say, EstimateOne is a lot more fun.

  • My name is Michael, but I prefer Mike. Together with Andrew, I co-founded EstimateOne and continue to serve as a non-executive director and shareholder in the business - offering support and guidance to Andrew as required. Before EstimateOne, I worked as an estimator at Kane and Becton. I love watches, whiskey and big hikes in the country.

  • Hey, I'm Alicia, also known as Badger. I was the first to jump on board with Mike and Ritchie way back when, and have been assisting and supporting our customers ever since. Before joining the EstimateOne family, I was working for a tour operator in (warmer) Adelaide. When not answering your calls and emails, you'll find me digging for, playing, boogying to, or talking about music.

  • Hey, I'm Melanie, EstimateOne's Business Development Manager. My particular focus is growing and managing our portfolio of Head Contractor clients. I love working for a business that truly wants to improve the lives of its clients. Unfortunately, I am often caught doing, or saying something I wish I hadn't.

  • Hi, I'm Rami. As a developer at EstimateOne I am tasked with automating all the tedious stuff out of our clients lives via computer magic. Outside of work you will find me trying to understand the magic behind computers, exploring new breakfast spots or dancing (really really badly).

  • I'm Tom, Software Development Manager here at EstimateOne. Before I joined EstimateOne I wrote software for the financial services industry and started a company providing rostering software to the catering industry. You may also recognise me as the author of the Latin translation of Rasmus Lerdorf's Programming PHP which remains to this day the standard Latin version of that work.

  • Hi, I'm Marni, one of the frontline soldiers of EstimateOne's Customer Support Team. I'm here to keep our users happy and engaged with our service, answering incoming queries and making outgoing queries of my own to help us maintain the awesome user base we currently have. I was a struggling New York actor of the musical theatre genre before moving to Australia for love and finding EstimateOne.

  • I'm Will, a developer at EstimateOne. As a developer, I press buttons on my keyboard until the pixels on my screen light up correctly, thereby bettering the construction industry. Sometimes I have to use my mouse as well. Outside of work, I enjoy having opposable thumbs.

  • Hello. I'm Chris. Most people call me Chris. As a web developer here at EstimateOne, my time is divided between sitting in front of a computer with a puzzled look, and sitting in front of a computer with an accomplished one. I moved to Melbourne from the UK in 2016, having previously been rained on every day since I was born. Outside of work I do a lot of running and cycling, which I fuel by eating as many consecutive brunches as possible.

  • I'm Nick, one of EstimateOne's dedicated web developers. Like most of the development team, my day-to-day role involves taking, and bringing to life the great ideas that both our team and customers come up with. Before coming on-board with EstimateOne, I worked numerous positions in the software and technology industry throughout Melbourne. I spend most of my weekends and spare time either playing games or hacking away on my own software projects.

  • Hey, I'm Sivan (aka Siv), EstimateOne's Data & Business Analyst. Armed with extensive experience in system analysis, and a background in industrial engineering and information science, I'm passionate about analysing data and processes, supporting rational informed decision making. In my free time, I like making up new soup flavours and being an eternal optimist, I'm always sure they turn out delish. For a second opinion, you can ask my hubby... :)

  • My name is Tony. I was the sharpest looking construction estimator in town before jumping to EstimateOne. As a project manager my role is to be a human guinea pig and trial new initiatives to grow the business and retain our loyal users (that's you!). I'm a motorcycle riding, Crossfit training, Brazilian jiu jitsu junkie. That's why my nickname is Zeus.

  • I'm Thejana, a Developer here at EstimateOne. I gave myself the nickname TJ to help people remember my name. I'm in charge of making sure our customers have a pleasant experience using our product. I'm a huge cricket fan and a bit of a musician outside of work. I'm trying to finish my Bachelors, explore Australia and understand footy, which is proving to be quite a hefty workload.

  • Hey there! I'm Michelle and I am the Bookkeeper at EstimateOne. It's my role to help look after the finances of EstimateOne through the cycle of sales to collections. I have spent a lot of my life working in finance in the automotive industry and am finding the construction industry very different but quite exciting. On any given weekend you can usually find me on a basketball court!

  • Hey, I'm Daniel, the Junior BDM/CSM here at EstimateOne. It's my job to help grow our list of Head Contractors and make sure they're getting the most out of our service. Before EstimateOne I was your stereotypical university student, working part-time at Coles only to blow it all on the weekend. Outside of work I bash around golf balls, try to travel as much as possible and support/criticise the mighty Geelong Football Club.

  • Hey, I'm Sophie, Product Specialist at EstimateOne. My role is to ensure that all of our customers get the most out of their EstimateOne experience. Before I joined the team, I was an estimator for a commercial builder in Brisbane. On weekends I'm either exploring the city, heading to the coast, checking out local music or catching up with mates.

  • Hi I'm Oly, Digital Product Designer at EstimateOne. My passion is to create amazing designs and user experience that'll empower your business. Before EstimateOne, I worked closely with public sector and enterprises on their digital transformation journeys, I've also worked in eCommerce for several years as designer, developer and bit of project management. I've just moved to Melbourne from Auckland NZ. I like spicy food, and I look forward to exploring the food scene here.

  • Hello, I'm Simon, I recently joined EstimateOne in the Graduate role. I am here to learn all there is to know about the company and our customers, with the aim of becoming a Swiss Army Knife at EstimateOne. Before EstimateOne I graduated in the UK and travelled the world for two years, drinking craft beer and visiting as many countries as my legs could carry me through. Outside of work I am a keen sports fan, especially of the mighty Aston Villa Football Club.

  • Hey, I'm Milly. You can usually find me doing typical UX stuff like research, testing and prototyping, or whipping up front-end components and wrangling Javascript and CSS. I am equal parts the champion of the user, the design systems thinker and the eternal asker of difficult questions. I have no "spare time" because I spend it all building my own SaaS product, teaching girls how to code with Code Like A Girl and explaining UX to people at General Assembly. I like cats, coffee and running.

  • Hey, I'm Matt, I'm part of the customer service team at EstimateOne. My role is to ensure everyone is getting the most out of their EstimateOne account and to answer any questions people may have. Before I joined the team I worked at a toy shop at the Childrens Hospital. On the weekends you'll usually find me getting upset about the St Kilda Footy Club or the mighty Canberra Raiders.

We'd love to see your mug shot here!

Check out our job listings below!

Keen to join us?

We’re always on the lookout for talented people. Whether you’re a developer or designer, communicator or closer, we’d love to hear from you.

Richmond
Web Developer

Intro: We need smart, friendly engineers to help us build an online product. We’re based in Richmond (Melbourne, Australia) and we’re just about to start weaving in React to our Symfony stack.

About us: EstimateOne is a fully bootstrapped, profitable, growing mid-sized product startup with a mission to better connect the commercial construction industry in Australia and beyond. We need your help to take our SaaS platform to the next level. EstimateOne builds products collaboratively in cross-functional teams, which we call “streams”. We draw from Lean product development and Design Thinking - which means we simply put our users first and work together rather than in silos. As an organisation, we’re doing some cool stuff - we’re passionate about a transparent and fair remuneration structure, a strong employee value proposition (including a paid week to pursue your entrepreneurial dream), heaps of fun perks and a commitment to wellness and happiness that you’ll really feel.

About our product:The platform is 10 years old and there’s a lot already in it. As a company - as a team - our mission is to make sure we’re unlocking value from what we’ve already done and creating value by inventing new stuff. It’s equal parts optimisation and innovation, data-driven and human-centred. The product is built on a Symfony foundation and this year we’re embarking on a React transformation for our front-end. Oh, and we’ve got some juicy machine learning to get involved with too.

About the role: As part of our engineering team your role is definitely not to be a code monkey. We bring engineers into the conversation early (really early) and it’s everyone’s responsibility to think big picture and be strategic. You’ll join a stream and get to know one area of our platform in depth so you won’t be spread too thin. You’ll get to work in a kick-ass cross-functional team and you’ll be encouraged to try new things, like sketching and working directly with users. It’s up to you where you want to specialise and how you want to best use your skill set. Your professional development matters and our company is built around the goals and needs of the unique individuals who work here. We’re looking for smart people who are keen to collaborate - it’s that simple. Forthright and frank is one of our core values. Culture fit matters to us; we care about our team and you’ll be joining a family.

About you:

  • Some experience with some MVC PHP framework. We work in Symfony, so Symfony is preferable, but Laravel is good too.
  • If you’ve got other MVC framework experience like Ruby or Node, talk to us.
  • Are you a React pro? Talk to us.
  • Worked on a rapidly evolving SaaS app before? Talk to us.
  • Passionate about solving user problems with code? Talk to us.
  • Humble and looking to grow your skills in engineering and beyond? Talk to us.
  • A champion of best practice and keen to learn the newest, coolest tech and share it with a team? Talk. To. Us.


The process:If you’re interested in joining our team, send us your CV and a bit about why you think you’d be a good fit. James Law (his sole job is to focus on development on well being which is a pretty sweet gig) will organise a time to catch up, either in person or via video chat if it looks like a good match. Should that catch up go well, we’ll bring you in to meet Tom, our head of development and James. Assuming that goes well you'll come back in to meet Milly our UX Engineer. If you ace that, we’ll do reference checks and send you a letter of offer!

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
