Head of Delivery & Operations

We’re a software and services company on an exciting growth trajectory with 25+ years’ experience in delivering world-class geospatial software and spatial data science expertise to customers in the public sector.

We’re building a team that is hungry for success with a culture that is fun, supportive yet challenging, and we’re looking for talented like-minded people to join us on this journey. We’re also looking for people who are comfortable with challenging the norm so we can get truly diverse thinking when solving problems and not just senior management making decisions – we live by the principles of empowerment and this role is pivotal to the success of the business.

What do we do? In short, we solve complex data problems to help our customers make better and faster decisions where location is a large part of our customers’ operations. We do this through our team of data consultants or through our software products or solutions where we enable customers to search for, and then visualise, data so they have great situational awareness and can make better decisions. The company went through a Private Equity backed Management Buy Out in 2020 and is now structuring for the next stage of growth.

Our culture

Envitia has a valuable mix of people and backgrounds, from the brightest mathematicians and data technologists, to pragmatic program managers and energetic customer partners. Across this group there is a common thread – the need to create a defined outcome with measurable business value combined with a world class experience for our customers. If you’re looking for a place where you can explore, learn, grow, and experiment in an environment that values you for what you bring, then come and have a chat. Our engineers and data scientists excel at what they do and are at the heart of who we are. As a company, we’re big enough to make a real difference to our customers but small enough to know each other well, have fun, be flexible, and appreciate what each other brings to the company.
