This is an opportunity to join a young company that maps the seas using crowdsourcing with boats and ships. Having sorted the technology, they are now ready to significantly grow the number of participating boats. They need the right person to drive this, as they launch their new web site and roll out tools for improved management of participating boats.

The job is primarily to create a global community of boats participating in the company, using digital marketing, social media, press releases etc. to raise awareness, getting people to participate, and supporting them as they participate. You will be presenting the company in a non-technical way, showing people what it is about and why they should participate. Whilst most participants to date are leisure craft owners, they will expand this to include fishing vessels and ships. To help things scale, you will work with their IT team to automate processes. You will also be involved in the launch of new products and services, some of which will use Kickstarter.

Working in the company

They are a team of 7, operating as a virtual company. All staff work remotely and, as far as meetings and other work events permit, can do flexible hours. This requires someone who doesn't have to go to the office to get into work mode, and doesn't need face to face contact with colleagues.

You may need to attend project meetings, and represent them at exhibitions, conferences etc.

Being a small company, your activities will have a direct effect on their results. You will have a high level of responsibility and autonomy, and will be able to grow with the business.

You may be based in the UK or any other EU state, so long as it is not too onerous or expensive to set up the necessary structure for employing you in your country of residence.
