Welcome to Kitt

The world of property is changing, and we’re at the forefront of this change. We are on a mission to give businesses space that brings people together, optimised to help  grow. We’re a well funded scale-up backed by one of London’s major prop-tech investors.

We partner with landlords to provide our tenants with tailored managed offices that they can call their own; using the latest technology to help digitise the space (Using 3D property scans, VR designs, virtual receptionists and a Tenant App to name a few). We’re leading the charge in an unexplored segment of the market and hope that you can help us!


In less than 2 years we have grown to become London’s second biggest operator (by number of buildings) and we are just getting started. 
Our team is 32 strong and growing and we’re looking for passionate and ambitious individuals to join us. 


Requirements
We are re-thinking the way space is delivered to businesses, with the projects team central to our product and business success. We need a forward-thinking, entrepreneurial leader to continue to innovate and build out our approach, helping us become a world-class project delivery function.


Reporting into our COO, you will be responsible for managing and growing our Project Management team. You will be working very closely with the commercial and other operational teams and will need to have excellent communication skills, an ability to problem solve amongst plenty of ambiguity and think creatively to build something truly different.


You will be:
1. Building an industry leading Project Management function: We are only just getting started, and expect the PM team to be growing significantly to handle our growth. We are looking for someone to build a fantastic, high performing team. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Building a great medium term plan which improves the way we deliver projects. 
  • Clear KPIs 
  • Effective project resource allocation and great project monitoring
  • Results - lots of projects delivered on time and to budget
  • Recruitment and training


2. Refining and improve the way we do things: We believe our approach to the industry is unique, and we know scaling will come with its challenges. We want a candidate who can understand our vision, strategy and goals and dramatically improve the way we deliver projects. Once you have had the chance to get your feet under the table we would love to see you: 

  • Supporting the evolution and implementation of project management standards, processes, templates and procedures
  • Enforcing these standards and milestone tracking, reporting on variations
  • Owning and improving processes along the delivery workflows
  • Ensuring client liaison is of the highest quality during the design and build process
  • Evolve the Kitt design & build product and process in line with our client needs


3. Collaborating closely across the business and with our external suppliers: The Project Management function is the pivotal point for so much of our work at Kitt. We are looking for someone who can lift not only their team but others as well. Some things we’d love to see:

  • Working with the sales team to demystify client briefs and create certainty for the delivery team
  • Build tools and training for the commercial teams to help them better serve our clients
  • Engaging with our Design team to create amazing spaces for our clients, in a robust way that is future-proof
  • Understanding our project requirements and building systems to allow for scale
  • Working closely with the finance team to make sure our clients and suppliers have a seamless experience with Kitt
  • Working closely with the Head of Procurement to ensure our supply chain is effective and engaged
  • Building and integrating with systems to hold our supply chain accountable for the highest quality under pressure


Are you the right person? 
Ideally you will have at least 7+ years professional experience in a similar function in a fast-paced high growth environment, with plenty of exposure to interior fit-out projects and construction.

The skills we need you to have include: 

  • Highly organised, focused and disciplined with the ability to prioritise 
  • Great communicator
  • A natural leader 
  • Excited by problem solving and finding solutions to difficult problems
  • Great at building solutions that scale. 
  • Digitally literate
  • Entrepreneurial 
  • To become a part of the team you must be passionate, enthusiastic, willing to learn and values driven. We know that experience is important, but attitude and finding the right ‘fit’ comes first for us.


Benefits
If you join us, we’ll always make sure you know how much we value your contribution and hard work. For sure we are competitive on salary and generous with our stock option plan. We will also expect you to rest for 28 days a year. But beyond all that expect some fun with our away days and company trips and team lunches. 
It goes without saying that as we are growing fast there will be plenty of opportunity for challenge and career progression.
