Meet your Future Neighbours

Nextdoor’s purpose is to cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on. What does that mean for you? It means you have the chance to join a positive, forward-thinking team of people who care deeply about community and well-being.

We’re looking for a passionate, high energy, yet detail-oriented,  individual who gets excited about creating and implementing global, best-in-class campaigns and processes.  You should be a team player who is passionate about our mission, but also willing to roll up your sleeves to get stuff done. You thrive in a fast-paced and collaborative environment where the work you do has a direct impact on the company’s purpose and growth.

The Impact You’ll Make
