Community Manager, Australia at Nextdoor

Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbours and your community. Nextdoor’s mission is to provide a trusted platform where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world.

Nextdoor is used by millions of members in over 180,000 neighbourhoods in the US. Since 2016, we have successfully launched Nextdoor in the Netherlands, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain, and we plan to extend our service further internationally in 2018 and beyond.

Neighbours use Nextdoor to share local events, find lost pets, recommend local service providers, give away or sell household items they no longer need, share information about neighbourhood safety, and discuss local issues. Our platform also allows government agencies and emergency response departments to communicate directly with residents, especially when urgent crime and safety issues arise.

As Community Manager for Nextdoor Australia you will be responsible for building engaged communities on  Nextdoor while providing excellent member support. You will also be responsible for identifying member facing issues and work to resolve them directly with our product and engineering team. You will represent the voice of our members to the rest of the organisation to ensure that everyone fully understands our members’ needs.

An ideal candidate has built and fostered online communities and led a support team.

This position is based in Sydney and you will be a member of our international team.

Finally, as part of the small but mighty Australian team, you’ll have the spirit that no job is too small or too large and a strong teamwork ethic.

If this sounds interesting, we want to meet you!
