At Grid, we have a desire to innovate and make a positive impact on how everyone can use the kerb, through a patented concept, building it out with some government funded projects and progressive partners. We have also developed and established internal teams that bring Design Thinking and new Software Development as close together as possible, in order to develop products that meet the needs of users and stakeholders. 

What we need now is someone to help us not only translate all that we have built to those that need to know about it, but to help us understand the market, the users and stakeholders more closely. We don’t just have a strong story to tell, but we have strong teams that need feeding, pushing and exploiting.

Grid needs someone that is comfortable with the day-to-day along with setting out the strategy for way beyond tomorrow. As the need is immediate and includes the day-to-day, deadlines will be tight, so working in that environment against dynamic needs is key, as is being strong to ensure Grid delivers the best it can against its ambitious plans.

Grid is an investor-backed start-up, and as such we have a growing and evolving culture. At times our week can change rapidly, but we do so with a focus on a target.
