MyBuilder.com is an innovative start-up based in East London, enabling homeowners to find reliable tradesmen through the power of online reviews. We are a hard working, close-knit team dedicated to creating an incredible product. Our headquarters reflect our unique culture; we have an office bar, guitars, drawing club and a volunteer Food Team who make lunches for their colleagues.
We have a team of specialists who read and evaluate every job posted on MyBuilder. Your role will be to manage this team and also take on plenty of the work yourself. Because of the nature of the activity, the team is comprised of remote agents working from home - though you will be based in the office in central London. Because the team is disparate, it’s crucial that they have an effective manager who keeps them motivated, is supportive and helps the team to improve and work well together. It’s also important that the function integrates with and gets visibility from the rest of the team.
The job evaluation activity is core to the business and to our revenue mechanism. Part of the function is estimating the value of every job that is posted in order to set the lead fee - in effect setting our prices job by job. We have more than 30 trade categories and jobs can be one-offs that span or combine categories. Peak will see up to 2,000 jobs in a single day (and we’re growing). Primary knowledge of the building trades helps you to quickly understand what is needed and the value each lead will bring to our tradespeople and our business.
Building knowledge and analytical skills are a must, yet, our primary criteria for this role is people management skills. The jobs team needs an experienced leader and someone who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the rest of our management team. If you think you are that person, please get in touch.
