Background to Vacancy

Method Apps Limited is a young B2B SasS software company. Our solution (Method Grid) is an innovative platform that facilitates the capture of structured, repeatable “best practice” (e.g. playbooks, standard operating procedures, staff on-boarding programmes) and the harnessing of such grids as a project/workflow management tool. Our core focus is the enterprise-level professional services buyer. 

The company was founded in Spring 2018 by four co-founders (who developed the product from its beta foundations in 2016). We now have multiple paying, tier-one paying companies (and a community of “searing advocate” users). 

This is a new position created as a function of growth-enabling funding and with the focus on accelerating the development of the solution. 

This is a great opportunity to work on and influence the development of an early stage web application with the potential for exciting, future growth.
