About Good-Loop

Good-Loop takes money from advertisers, and gives it to charities.
But Good-Loop is not itself a charity: we do this by making ads more effective, and we do make a profit on each ad. We are turning ads from a nuisance to be blocked, into a shared positive moment which funds social and environmental good. We also believe in treating internet users fairly, empowering them to be partners in the advertising and data ecosystem. Clients include Unilever, Kit-Kat, and Pepsi, and we've raised over £2m for charity.

You'll be part of a small dynamic world-class team, led by CEO Amy Williams (Forbes 30 Under 30 | UN Women Global Innovator) and co-founder CTO Daniel Winterstein (Director of the Year, Scotland 2019 | PhD in AI). Join us! Use your skills to improve the world.

About the Job

This job involves project management, team-management, software architecture, and hands-on coding work.

Our software products include dynamic adverts, web-apps such as My.Good-Loop, a browser plugin Tabs-for-Good, and soon a mobile-app.
