Local Measure is an exciting SaaS company building next-generation customer experience and engagement software for the world’s top brands. We are a passionate and close-knit team of 40+ people, with offices in Sydney, Singapore, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Cape Town and Miami and an all-star set of investors, advisors and senior executives from Google, Twitter, Salesforce, Uber to name a few.

Over the past twelve months, we have been busy building and launching a contact center iteration of our product: an omni-channel agent desktop purpose-built for Amazon Connect. We have actively partnered with the global AWS teams to bring Local Measure Engage for Amazon Connect to market, and are seeing significant momentum with clients with partners and AWS globally. As a result, we are looking for an Implementation Project Manager to help lead and implement new customers onto our platform globally.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity for a talented Project Manager to work alongside Local Measure’s most senior executives to execute successful client implementations that will impact the future trajectory of our business.

We are a values-driven organisation, and our eight Core Values keep us aligned and motivated every day:

  • Zero Ego: We’re all equal players. Anyone can have an idea and everyone’s opinion gets a shot
  • Think Like A Customer: We want our customers to thrive. Our #1 commitment is to their success.
  • Own It: If you have a good idea, run with it. The ball is in your court, ace it.
  • Punch Above: Our size doesn’t hold us back. We’ll go against anyone and outperform on agility and skill.
  • Have Grit: We strive to win. We are scrappy, resourceful, and determined.
  • Laugh Out Loud: Laughter is always heard around our offices. Don’t underestimate the value of a one-liner.
  • Build Each Other Up: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We help each other out and celebrate as a team.
  • Do The Right Thing: We are responsible for what we put into the world. We play by the rules, even when it’s easier not to.
