Career Opportunity /  17 April 2023

Community Manager [Remote]

We are a team of ecologists and technologists who believe good business must be good for nature. We’re building an economy that puts nature and business in balance by incentivising the restoration of nature at scale.

Deadline: 17 April 2023 - 25 days

About Pivotal: 
Economies and societies around the world need our planet’s diverse plant and animal life to create the products and services we take for granted. Protecting and restoring nature is vital to the future of human life as we know it.

For the first time, investment into biodiversity regeneration is being prioritised. Financing is flowing to projects and start-ups that are creating practical, viable solutions. Governments, companies and individuals around the world now need affordable, scalable ways to link biodiversity commitments and actions to real, evidenced outcomes. That’s where we come in. 

Our mission is to provide the data people and companies need to invest in measured, positive outcomes for nature. Our platform enables biodiversity data to be captured, in a coherent way, on the ground using a range of technologies. All the data we collect is organised and analysed first with machine learning, then quality-controlled by ecosystem experts to provide measured, quality-controlled analytics to show evidence of any biodiversity gains on the ground. These measured gains can then be linked to a variety of financial mechanisms which reward positive outcomes – enabling money to flow to those projects and activities that create the most positive change. 

About the role: 

Following our €5.2m seed round investment from some of Europe's leading VCs and advocates for a better planet, we are growing our team to support our next stage of growth. We are here to build an institution that changes the way the world collaboratively works on the largest problems our planet is facing, and the only way we can do that is by bringing together a team who is passionate about restoring nature in new and exciting ways. 
We are looking for an engaged and engaging community builder who is passionate about people and the planet! This role will grow and manage our online community of ecological annotators, responsible for verifying the data gathered from our project sites, as well as explore new opportunities to increase our online presence and shape our external brand.  

Role responsibilities: 

  • Recruit new community members, collaborating with international and local ecological and biodiversity groups and professionals to identify experts to support our data analysis 
  • Building scalable and repeatable processes for attracting new community members and retaining existing ones
  • Researching specific geographic locations to gain a deep understanding of our project sites and the surrounding communities
  • Developing a social media strategy to grow our social networks 
  • Working with translators and technology to translate key messaging to community members from a diverse range of geographies
  • Proactively working cross-functionally with other teams to understand the resources required for each project site
  • Monitoring, analysing and interpreting hiring, engagement and retention metrics to turn insights into new ways of doing

  • Zero ego and a humble approach to ‘jumping in’, learning and adapting as required
  • A passion for the planet and how technology can support the protection and restoration of the natural world
  • A conscientiousness in your approach to your work that enables you to work independently, or as part of a team, to deliver high quality work on time 
  • A default to transparency and trust, ensuring people can debate on best approaches
