Who we are.


We Are WeShape.


Our mission is to provide expertise on demand, at scale, to solve the hardest technical and organizational challenges to deliver continuous and lasting value.


Utilising our expertise within the DevOps, Digital, Data and Cloud market, we engage our network of Associates, some of the brightest minds within industry. We consult, guide and deliver solutions for some of the world’s leading brands within the market.


The problem you’ll be solving.


WeShape is building a gig economy of the top 5% of DevOps, Digital, Data and Cloud native specialists within the market, and as an early hire within this function, you’ll be directly responsible for developing and scaling this network.


We already have an extensive network of specialists, but we haven’t even scratched the surface on what this community could become and how we can scale this model globally.


What you’ll be doing.


As with any fast growing company, no two days will be the same, and you’ll take ownership for how you spend your time and the direction you take this function, supported by a collaborative management team.


Primarily though, this role will revolve around three core areas:



Building relationships, networking and maintaining our network of the top 5% of associates.


  • Continuous build of our pipeline of diverse, top-tier technical talent across our core disciplines

  • Use our cutting-edge CRM to build, code and track talent pools

  • Design, organise and host our virtual & physical associate networking events

  • Initial screening of potential associates, ahead of technical competency calls.

  • Manage delivery budgets, conduct reference and background checks



Ensuring our Associate network is fully engaged throughout deployments and thereafter.


  • Taking ownership of new Associate onboarding processes / timesheets / day to day support

  • Managing monthly Associate events

  • Ensuring deployed Associates are achieving deliverables and targets

  • Building a community of WeShape brand evangelists 


What the future looks like. 


You’ll be given a huge amount of responsibility for this function, so whatever the future brings - expansion, hiring, new tools and processes - will be in your hands. There’s a huge opportunity for personal growth in this role and as with any high-growth business, this role has the scope to expand over time. 


You’ll be given the full support of the business who will heavily invest in your development with new tools, processes and training. 


It will be massively rewarding, we have huge plans for WeShape and the growth of our functions and you’ll have a share in helping us achieve this.
