We Are What We Do is looking for an experienced, energetic Digital Director to
take hold of our portfolio of digital projects, as well as our approach to
devising new ones, and run with them.

  
Digital development is at the heart of our work to change behaviours in
positive ways and affect major social and environmental issues. This is
reflected in an existing portfolio of digital behaviour change projects, such
as Historypin and Internet Buttons, and our continuing commitment to
generating a stream of successful, powerful products and tools.

  
Our existing projects and future plans are made up of big social ambitions --
we aim to harness the potential of new technology to make a difference to a
massive mainstream audience, intelligently, creatively and practically. We
want someone who shares our ambitions and to help lead the organisation into
the next phase of its growth.

  
With 8 years experience, We Are What We Do, a not-for-profit company, sets out
to reinvent the sector of creative behaviour change by applying our
"Incidental Effect" approach -- which builds positive behaviors into useful,
desirable products -- to major social and environmental problems.

  
We Are What We Do's digital potential has also been shown both by our rapid
international growth and our racking up of accolades. In the last year alone,
our innovative community engagement and user interface design has earned us
awards around the world, including a Webby, a Lovie, and a Tech4Good
Innovation Award.

  
Could you be the right person to join our team of dedicated, creative
individuals? Someone who is constantly coming up with ways of improving things
and knows how to get them done? Someone who's a perfectionist, who sees every
target as the start of the next challenge? Someone with big expectations, who
thinks in terms of millions of visitors, billions of page views, cabinets of
awards, new frontiers crossed, boundaries broken, radical new ways of doing
things? If so read on…
