Otter makes it easier for people to choose the products and services that are best for them and their world. Our goal is to help overcome the barriers faced by consumers who want to make ethical consumption choices.
Otter is a start-up social enterprise. We develop tools to better enable consumers to make consumption choices consistent with their values, and through those choices promote environmental sustainability, fair trade, human rights, consumer safety and ethical treatment of animals.
In June 2013 we launched Otter as a fortnightly curated eNewsletter that provides readers with hand-picked tips and guides, consumer actions, events and more. We are working on further tools to support consumers make ethical consumption decisions.
The following positions are now available.
- Development director
- Marketing and social media volunteer (or intern)
Inquiries about volunteer work or internships in other roles are welcome. Possibilities include writer/journalist, researcher, photo editor, app programmer, web designer, “growth hacker”.
We are looking for a focused and energetic person who can help us grow through effective engagement with users and potential users, and with the organisations who can provide financial support for our work.
Your key responsibility will be to develop the financial base to make our ideas happen. You will lead work to identify social or socially responsible investors and partners and derive revenue from our existing and new products.
You will also help plan and develop our next product, a web and phone database app, and implement and evaluate new features and better communications to help us understand what our users need most.
We’re a small team, so you’ll need to be happy to pitch in when other tasks need to get done.
You will need to be comfortable in a changing, start-up environment where team members work together to set strategy and implement it without fussing too much about formal job roles or responsibilities.
If this project inspires you and you think you have the creativity, self awareness, motivation and respect for others to make things happen please send a short note telling us why.
This is a part time role based in Sydney.
