Who we are. 

We Are WeShape. 

WeShape is a technical consultancy with a mission to provide expertise on demand, at scale, to solve the hardest technical and organisational challenges to deliver continuous and lasting value. 

Our vision is to change the landscape of consulting within the technology industry. 

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. 

We recently were awarded best DevOps consulting firm of the year 2022. 

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.

  • Design, organise and host our virtual & physical associate networking events 
  • Work with our marketing team and create innovate ideas on how to build our Associate network and spread the advantages of joining our network


  • Engaging our leading Associate network to deliver cutting-edge solutions for our customers. 
  • Collaborate with our sales teams, understand technical briefs and deploy suitable expertise. 
  • Continuously engage and source industry leading associates through LinkedIn, wider tools, and our internal CRM (Vincere) 
  • 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 good amount of responsibility for this function, so whatever the future brings - expansion, hiring, new tools and processes - will be in your hands to develop over time. 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. 

Coming in at the start of WeShape’s journey in Europe, you will have the opportunity to support, grow and improve a new business unit and implement new ideas and ways of working.
