Snap Send Solve/Full-time

Melbourne

Posted 24 Jan 2023

Closes 23 Feb 2023

The role

We’re looking for a full-time Copywriter to join our marketing team. This newly created role will be integral to our brand awareness and content marketing efforts.

We’re a tech company with a purpose to empower everyone to improve shared spaces around them. Be ready to take the reins in a start up environment and together we’ll build and nurture our brand. Hone and develop our tone of voice with the creative freedom to test and collaborate with community groups, government agencies and influencers.

Speak to our app users (we call them Snappers) with exciting and shareable messaging across a range of marketing materials and take part in improving communities across Australia and New Zealand by educating people on the value of taking pride in your local area.

 

 

Why we’re here

We’re a platform that allows anyone to report community issues to local councils, utilities and companies like Telstra, NBN and Australia Post. We exist to empower every person to improve shared spaces around them.

Our community of 350,000+ Snappers send reports about anything from fallen trees or damaged playground equipment to accessibility issues anywhere in Australia and New Zealand.

We provide organisations — whom we call Solvers — a cloud-based SaaS platform enabling easy and reliable communication with their residents and customers. Councils can more efficiently resolve community issues, the University of Melbourne uses Snap Send Solve as a way to engage with students, staff and visitors and we help organisations like the SES monitor flood levels.

Snappers have sent almost 3 million reports and counting. We’re a tech company pursuing real impact in hundreds of communities every day. Our vision is to be the go-to platform for communities to improve shared spaces — everywhere. And if you think that sounds like something worth working on, we’d love you to join us.
