About us

In a world where organisations are facing significant skills challenges, increasing compliance requirements and continuous organisational transformation, current approaches to managing jobs and job data are no longer fit for purpose.

RoleMapper is an AI-powered job description management solution that enables organisations to create, manage and future-proof job architectures and job descriptions. Built with inclusion and diversity at the core – our big vision is that our platform helps organisations build inclusive workplaces and transforms the world of work.

To be successful working with us you will be “Start-up ready”, by this we mean you: are naturally proactive, default to action; have a positive attitude to change; have a continuous improvement mindset; are flexible, always happy to go beyond your brief; enjoy working at pace; are comfortable when not everything is clearly defined!

While our ‘official’ registered office is in Exeter, we all work remotely across different locations. We have regular team working-together days in both Exeter, Wokingham and London, so you would need to live/work somewhere reasonably accessible to one or more of these locations. If you prefer working in an office, we offer flexible memberships to regional workspaces. 

Flexible Working 

We recognize that everyone is different and that the way in which people want to work and deliver at their best is different for everyone too. In this role, we can offer the following flexible working patterns: 

  • Working from home  
  • Working flexible hours - flexing the times when you work in the day to help you fit everything in and work when you are the most productive 


Competitive salary to be discussed.
