About Fat Llama

What if owning things was no longer important? What if expensive, niche items could be available to you in seconds? And what if you could generate an extra income from your own belongings? At Fat Llama, we're already bringing about that future. We believe that one day, owning those things we only occasionally need will be as ridiculous as buying a house every time you want to go on holiday.

Our users enjoy on-demand access to anything from high-end cameras to drones to campervans. As a result, they're doing, creating and achieving incredible things every day. Income from rentals is changing the lives of many of our lenders, too - whether it's paying their rent or allowing them to drop corporate jobs and focus on passion projects.

The herd's growing fast, too. Last year we went through Y Combinator and recently announced a $10M raise from amazing investors to superpower our growth and focus on American expansion.

We are looking for a number of motivated and enthusiastic individuals to join the team immediately as Community Managers. You will cover a choice of shifts to suit your preference over weekdays, weekday evenings and/or weekends to support and engage with our growing online community. The role will develop as we expand.

Responsibilities:

Operations: A large part of the role is managing the operations to ensure the rentals and payments go through smoothly. This ranges from monitoring customers through our online verification process, managing our payment system, and resolving any hiccups that might occur along the way.

Community: Dealing with inbound questions from new, curious customers. Across our instant chat platform Intercom, emails, and phone calls. Ensuring we continuously improve the quality of support we offer to our users.

Product Development: Working with the Product Development Team, collecting and responding to feedback through online and offline routes. Liaising with our Product Team about bugs, issues, product feedback, and potential changes to our platform. Focusing on user experience and design.

Growth: As we are just building the office in New York, there will be opportunities early on to contribute significantly in growing the platform in NYC. Successful candidates will work in both operations and marketing and will be equipped with the skills required to launch Fat Llama in a new city. In terms of progression, successful candidates may either choose to settle into a role in NYC or become part of the city launching team and move around the country launching new cities as they go.
