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 support the development of an early stage web application with the potential for exciting, future growth. It would be ideally suited to a software tester looking to expand into product management or vice versa. The candidate must also enjoy working with a great team of co-workers who embody the cultural values of: Team-to-Tribe (highly collaborative), Central Rock (client-centricity), Never Settle (never ending pursuit of excellence coupled with humility to recognise we never get there), Egos at the Door (take our work seriously but not ourselves) and Fast Craft (ruthless speed when it comes to product development). You will work closely with the Head of Product and others in the team to help plan, manage and deliver the Method Grid product roadmap. You will also be responsible for the product testing.
