About OpenCorporates

We live in a world where the future of democracy is no longer assured, and the power and opacity of corporations threatens to undermine society. If you want to make a difference, want to make sure that fundamental rights and democratic values are maintained, join OpenCorporates, the largest open database of companies in the world.

Over the past five years we’ve achieved huge amounts, helping change society for the better, and becoming a key resource for journalists, NGOs, government and more. We’ve helped journalists investigate stories of corruption, money laundering and organized crime. We’ve enabled armchair investigators to build corporate network for powerful organisations and politicians. And our data has been used by many charities including Global Witness, Transparency International, Oxfam, NRGI, and OpenOil for research and investigations.

After 3 years, our wonderful Community Manager, Hera, is moving out of London, and so we need someone to fill her considerable shoes, and build on what’s already been achieved, to make OpenCorporates even more important and impactful in the world.

Closing date: 31st May
