GoFundMe is changing the way the world gives. Every day, friends, family and members of the community come together to support one another and the causes they care about most. Our campaigners have raised over $5 billion for medical expenses, education, community projects, sports, emergencies, pets, and other personal causes and life events--making us the world's largest crowdfunding platform.
GoFundMe has assembled one of the best management teams to go build the next leading consumer Internet company - including leaders from Facebook, Twitter, Uber, Change.org, Groupon, YouTube, Linkedin, Intuit, GoPro, and several others. We are also funded by some of Silicon Valley’s best venture capital firms, including Accel, Greylock, TCV, and others.
After experiencing exponential growth across North America and Europe, we're putting our first team into Australia, and we're looking for the “best of the best” to do it. We need an experienced, local expert to lead our efforts in Australia. You'll develop a strategy based on local insights and manage external communications, community building, marketing, partnerships, and PR initiatives. You'll work with a small team in Australia to execute on local strategy while partnering closely with the product teams to build a top quality experience for GoFundMe campaign organisers. We are a fast growing company and you will have the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and help the company move from strategy to execution.
