We are looking for a Principal Risk Engineer to join our Customer Success team.

You’ll play a critical role in working with our clients from around the world, empowering them to understand the insights we produce and take action on a range of exciting and dynamic projects.

Using the world's largest dataset of construction projects, and nPlan's advanced machine learning models, you can help nPlan forever change how construction projects are managed and executed.
You will play a key role in delivering deep insights and maximum value to our growing client base.

nPlan are working with some of the largest infrastructure projects in the world (think new railways, airports and power stations), which means an opportunity to have a significant impact on the world around us, and what it will look like in the future, from the very first day.

Using your expertise in communicating risk, we’re excited by the changes we can bring to the risk analysis process and the impact this could make in the construction market. You’ll be joining a world-class and very well funded team, backed by top investors including GV (formerly known as Google Ventures) that all believe in the future we are creating.
We’ve been on a tremendous growth trajectory for the last three years, and thanks to our latest $18.5m investment round we have even more ambitious growth plans for 2022 and beyond, scaling our product and team at an exciting pace.

We know that taking your next career move is a big decision. If you'd like to ask us any questions before applying (role-related or company-related) please use this link to book in a short chat with our Talent Acquisition Manager, Jack

What you’ll get to do as our Principal Risk Engineer:

  • Partner with our clients, the largest infrastructure contractors and owners, to help them understand our insights and most importantly, guide them to take action.
  • Work with our product team to help them understand the perspective of the user and test out new product features.
  • Assist junior team members with opportunities for mentoring and management available.

What you bring to nPlan - If you do not meet all the criteria, we'd still love to hear from you

  • You’ve got strong experience in modelling risk quantitatively (cost or schedule). It's a plus if you're well versed in Quantitative Schedule Risk Analysis (QSRA) from its basic principles to the use of software tools like Primavera Risk Analysis (Pertmaster), @Risk or similar.
  • You’ve been able to communicate your work (especially verbally) with a wide variety of stakeholders on a variety of projects and can demonstrate your ability to influence decision makers.
  • Your experiences in risk give you perspective to bring to the table but more importantly, you are excited about how nPlan’s approach is fundamentally different and valuable.
  • You have strong quantitative skills, with a good understanding of statistics.
  • You will be comfortable interrogating results and solving novel problems based on experience and understanding of QSRA.
  • You're excited about the impact of what we're building: your energy, determination and drive inspire others to push for ambitious targets.

The typical nPlanauts are:

  • Generally curious about the world.
  • Serious, without taking themselves too seriously.
  • Able to define their own work independently.
  • Proactive about improving the world around them.
  • Open-minded about new technical ideas.
  • Willing to change their mind on the basis of the evidence.

What working at nPlan will be like:

  • We are still a small team so there is plenty of opportunity for a high degree of ownership over different areas of the product, and you will be directly exposed to all areas of the business.
  • Your voice will always be heard. What you do or say counts, not who you are or where you're from.
  • We have three core values that underlie everything we do: Learn from Everything, Be Radically Truthful, and Aim High, Run Fast. These enable us to create a collaborative, inclusive environment where we can move effectively and efficiently to implement the best solutions.
  • We are a cross-disciplinary team, and come from all backgrounds and countries. We offer Visa sponsorship and contribute to relocation costs.
  • Fantastic benefits package for Health & Wellbeing, Learning & Development, family leave, weekly team lunches and more.
  • We give all employees share options in the company - these have the potential to grow in value significantly if we continue on our current trajectory (though it’s important to know that the value of shares can go down as well as up)
  • We are committed to addressing the diversity problem in the tech industry, and that starts with making sure we have a diverse team where everyone feels at home and can contribute as an equal.
  • Having time to yourself and a private life is important. We offer a very flexible work environment and a generous holiday policy.
