Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) sits at the nexus of participatory mapping, community-led development, humanitarian response, open data and tech. With a talented and diverse team spread around the globe, HOT is an NGO which supports a dynamic global community of thousands of dedicated volunteers using maps and open data for humanitarian response and the Sustainable Development Goals. Working with humanitarian and development partners like the Red Cross, Médecins Sans Frontières, UN agencies, governments and others, the HOT community maps in solidarity with those affected by or at risk of disaster, contributing the maps and data aid workers need to do their lifesaving work.
In 2020 the work of the HOT community was recognized by TED’s Audacious Project, a collaborative philanthropic initiative that serves as a springboard for social impact on a grand scale, leading to an exciting new phase of growth. HOT is expanding its activities: opening four regional hubs and scaling up its support to local mapping communities with the audacious goal of mapping an area home to one billion people in 94 countries at high risk of disasters or experiencing poverty - mapping with communities before they are in crisis.
Our preferred candidate is comfortable working in a very fast paced, startup-like environment with a highly motivated and unconventional team. A pro-active, positive, go-getting nature is essential. You should thrive in an environment where you direct your own day-to-day tasks in support of HOT’s mission, together with a team of staff and volunteers. You can choose your own office location or to work from home and should love working with remote teams as you’ll spend significant time on the phone, Slack, and Zoom.
About the Role
HOT is searching for a Corporate Partnerships Assistant to join our Global Philanthropy & External Relations (P&ER) team. The P&ER team is a new, dynamic team at HOT that has been tasked with ensuring the long-term financial sustainability of HOT. We see our relationships with Corporates as being a key piece of securing financial sustainability and this role will play an instrumental part in ensuring the health of those relationships. As a part of its corporate offering, HOT arranges and leads volunteers in events, including mapathons and other training events. The primary responsibility of this role is to lead virtual map training events, which we refer to as ‘mapathons’ for HOT’s corporate partners based in the Americas timezone.
Given this is an evolving team, there are many learning and growth opportunities for this role – across relationship management, philanthropy, external relations, and GIS.
