Shape

We are bringing our collective experience together to build the digital backbone of a construction organisation, app by app.

  • 4 x 8hr days
  • 100-500 employees
  • 100% remote

What we do

We are Shape.Construction!

We are digitising the largest and most fundamental industry in the world, the industry that literally builds the foundations of the civilisation we all depend on to spare us from a brutal hunter-gatherer life: CONSTRUCTION.

Construction is one of the least digitised industries in the world but also the largest – 1 in 9 people globally work in the construction industry and it constitutes 11% of global GDP.

Improving construction strengthens the very foundation of human civilisation. (Watch our short film about it).

Shape app

We got our start as a high-end construction project management consultancy. As a consultancy, we are focused on genuinely upgrading the way construction projects are delivered. We then take the deep understanding of the projects we work on to develop construction management software products that anyone can use to deliver their projects better.

We are building a full suite of products one module at a time – kind of like office 365 but for construction management. (Check out Shape, our construction management tech and watch this video about what we are doing)

The core of all this is our true secret sauce; people. We only recruit the very best both in capability and personality. We are deeply focused on designing a new type of organisation that is optimised for the flourishing of the people in the team first and foremost. People that join us develop fast as a whole person in ways they never imagined. (Read more about our vision and mission).

This approach has allowed us to grow from just 2 people in 2017 to over 120 today (including consultancy) and we are still very much at the beginning! Joining us isn’t just some “job”, it is a transformative educational experience. We challenge you to be your best self in all aspects of life.rkers to know about every on-going project on the site.

4 core values for a good life

We believe a life of human flourishing is all about meaningful relationships with others and challenging yourself to create a positive impact. So our values reflect the 4 levels of relationships that each of us has:

  • Grow yourself – Your relationship with yourself
  • Care about people – Your relationship with others around you
  • Execute to greatness – Your relationship with your team
  • Build civilisation – Your relationship with humanity and the world

This goes much deeper but for the sake of brevity, we will keep the summary version!

Working at Laminar

We enshrined our values in our vision:

We exist so that everyone in our team can thrive in a high-impact community that: 

  • Connects us with meaningful relationships
  • Inspires us to develop ourselves to become better humans
  • Empowers us to pursue our own learning adventures

We believe that, by first doing this, we can achieve the highest levels of value for the world. 

And enable the achievement of our vision through our dual missions: 

  • To fully digitise the construction of human civilisation
  • To create a new type of organisation that enables human flourishing while delivering a huge positive impact on society

Our team

We'e a team of 125+ who are disrupting the construction industry. We are mostly based in the UK, Phillipines, India and Portugal but work completely remotely.

  1. We understand: As construction people, we’ve experienced all the problems that people face on chaotic projects.
  2. We’re pragmatic: We’ve seen crappy tools making people’s lives harder. Our tools are built for you.
  3. We are digital pioneers: We are leading the way in the digitisation of a very under-served industry.
