Want to challenge yourself at a high-growth startup AND make a difference in the world?

A bit about us

Hi, we’re Who Gives A Crap! We make eco-friendly toilet paper (as well as tissues and paper towels) and donate 50% of our profits to help build toilets for the 2 billion people in need. We love doing good, and we happen to be exceptionally good at it too! To date, we’ve donated over AUD$10 million (roughly USD$7.4 million) to fund sanitation projects around the globe. 

Our team is made up of over 120 amazing humans in Australia, the Philippines, China, the US and Europe and we’re working hard to reach our ambitious goals to create the greatest impact possible – for people and the planet. How ambitious you ask? Well, it involves increasing our annual donation 10-fold in the next couple of years to get closer to our mission – toilets and clean water for all!

A bit about the role

These are exciting times -  we are bringing our video editing and motion graphics functions in-house to join our fast-growing Video team under our Creative department. As our first official human on our post-production team, this Post Production Manager will help us to define new and more efficient ways of working when it comes to post production project workflow. 

Reporting to our Video Lead, collaborating closely with our two Video Content Creators, and hiring our first in-house editors, you will manage the workload of the global dream team that produces, edits, and processes alllll of our epic video content. 

From project kickoffs and editor onboarding, to footage delivery and file management, you’ll oversee our team’s entire post production process, ensuring all stakeholder’s feedback is addressed on every project, and our videos are being delivered on time and on brand. You’re a forward-thinking process junkie (proficient in Adobe Creative Suite!) who will find big picture ways to scale our video operations, but is still excited about getting your hands dirty to organize a project folder, or help build out GFX, music and sound libraries to take our videos to the next level. 

This role will join a Creative Team who span the US and Australia, with our Video Team currently in New York, Los Angeles and Melbourne. We’re not immune to the effects of challenging timezones but we look to solve this by committing to 4 hours per day of collaboration time which sees our US team aligning to PST afternoons and our Australian team diving into some earlier mornings. 

Currently, the majority of our physical shoots and file storage lives in Los Angeles so we'd love for you to, too! 

If you worked here this past month here are some things you might have been involved in:

  • You led a Zoom meeting to walk the Video team through a new post-production process you’ve just created, ensuring that all are crystal clear on how this will speed up output and help make everyone’s life easier!
  • Juggled (with ease) a variety of demands for a last minute video deadline, ensuring feedback from numerous humans have been incorporated, and that the project is delivered on time and meeting all our creative standards.
  • Onboarded our editors and video content creators onto a new-and-improved folder structure, ensuring consistency across projects, allowing for seamless project transfer across team members.
  • Kicked off a new freelance editor on a video project, making it super simple for them to use our edit tools, download our brand assets, and navigate our folders to find what they need.
  • Jumped in to help the Video team on set during a busy shoot day, offering up your DIT expertise, so that we could move into edit with less AE hoops to jump through  later. 
  • Added your insanely talented network of post personnel (editors, motion designers, VFX artists, colorists, post sound mixers, AEs, post coordinators, etc.) to our Freelance Friends Library and intro’d a couple of them to our Video Team for future freelance engagements.
  • Collaborated with our Creative Team Manager and Video Lead to recognize our video team’s immediate post needs (both staffing and tech tool-related) and anticipate down-the-road needs, enabling our team to scale at a pace like never before.

Let’s talk about you

You set the pace (no, don’t worry, we’re not talking about running here)

You not only keep epic focus for your own work, but you have a natural ability for keeping others up to speed and moving ahead efficiently. You have magical communication powers that allow you to provide updates and reminders in the most clear and encouraging ways to your teammates, essentially acting as the band “conductor” for your team by supporting all post-production workflows and processes. Your efficiency and work ethic allows your team to work at a rate like never before!

You can tell the future (*crystal ball not included)

Based on the company’s overall growth, you’re able to anticipate the needs of our post production team. You’re not afraid to suggest new tools and human hires, so that we are scaling our team as efficiently as possible and always ready to take on a slew of new and exciting projects. 

You <3 organisation

To put it frankly, you can’t rest at night until you know your files are in order and your video assets have been squared away like ducks in a row. Your brain naturally works in an orderly way, and there’s never a desktop you aren’t cleaning up or a file system you aren’t rejigging to be even moooore user-friendly. Your virtual file systems for clips and assets are so beautifully tidied that even Marie Kondo would swoon over them.

You are a high-tech visual gatekeeper

Nothing gets past your keen eye for details. You would never let your videos go out into the world without one final check to make sure that they are upholding our brand standards, are consistent with the quality of content that our audience expects and optimized for all the different channels.

You give a crap

Yep. We’re all here because we genuinely want to make the world a better place with our work, and we want you to want that too! Awwww.

Phew, ok... let’s take a pause. Research suggests that at this point up to 60% of those identifying as women or under-represented folks might have talked themselves out of applying. But here’s the thing, you don’t have to check every box and we are serious about the growth and development of all those who join us. So please - introduce yourself and let us know about you!

Why you should work with us

Every minute you spend working with us, you’re making a difference. The more we grow, the bigger our impact. Sell your soul no longer! We think that’s pretty great, but we don’t stop there…

The job is amazingly flexible, something we’re working hard to hold onto even as we grow quickly.

Our benefits are designed to support and be responsive to our healthy, happy and thriving team. On top of what you’d expect from a people-first team like ours, we offer tailored learning & development opportunities, generous paid parental leave, support through our parent and caregivers portal - Circle In, access to our digital mental wellbeing platform - Uprise… did we mention free TP? Oh, and you get to say the word ‘crap’ more than in any other job. Guaranteed.

We are passionate about fair and equitable remuneration. We pay competitively and thoughtfully based on your experience, the market and our insights. Just because we’re a social enterprise doesn’t mean you’ll get paid peanuts. Think chocolate covered macadamia nuts with some extra perks thrown in.

We’re not the only ones who think that working at Who Gives A Crap is pretty unbeatable. We’re honoured to have been recognised for the second year in a row on BuiltInLA’s “100 Best Places to Work” list, and most recently on their “Best Mid-sized Places to Work” list. 

We’re also humbled to have recently received our sixth consecutive Culture Amp engagement score of 90+ and as a certified B Corp, we're committed to the highest standards of social and environmental impact as a profit-for-purpose business.

How we roll

We believe a diversity of perspectives and experiences is what makes a strong team. The stronger our team, the closer we are to our mission – toilets and clean water for all. So come join us! We're looking for people of all genders, races, ethnicities, orientations, abilities and disabilities to come sit at our table. We don't care about your income, education or employment history either. The only thing we're a stickler on is species – you have to be a person.
