Account Executive


About us

Varicon is on a mission to transform one of the biggest and oldest industries globally.  Construction has one of the highest rates of insolvency among all industries (it accounts for 10% of GDP and 25% of insolvencies).  This is a consequence of the huge level of financial risk that these companies are exposed to.  We’re changing this by helping construction contractors make better data-driven decisions to reduce financial risk.

Varicon is a fast-growing venture funding backed startup transforming the way construction costs are managed.  Varicon enables our customers greater visibility into financial performance of their projects to reduce overall financial risk for the business and improve internal governance processes.

We’re looking for a motivated Account Executive to help us fuel our rapid growth.  This is a unique opportunity to join a high performance team as our first sales hire at the start of our journey.  Your opportunities for personal growth and career progression are limited only by your drive, ability to deliver and willingness to learn new things.  At Varicon you can make a real impact on the way one of the biggest global industries operates.
