🔭 Our mission & vision

Job Description

Not all heroes wear capes — but plenty of them use toilet paper

Want to challenge yourself at a high-growth startup AND make a difference in the world? Come join the revolootion!

Funny name, serious business

We make eco-friendly products and donate 50% of our profits to help build toilets for the billions of people who lack proper access. So far, we’ve contributed over $10 million AUD (roughly $7.4 million USD) to fund sanitation projects around the globe. Basically, we’re really good at doing good. 

With hubs in Australia, the Philippines, China, the US, UK and Europe, our ambitious team of 170+ work tirelessly to make the biggest possible impact for people and the planet. Over the next couple of years, we’re working to increase our annual donation tenfold and we won’t rest until everyone in the world has access to clean water and sanitation services.

A bit about the role

As a brand new roll (woop, pun intended!) on our Strategy Team, our Strategy Analyst, Supply Chain & Special Projects will take us deeper into our business data, inform and guide our supply-chain related decision making, champion sustainability and execute cross-functional projects that will enable the next steps in our journey. You will use your analytical expertise to help us identify our biggest opportunities, manage risks, support the development and implementation of high-impact projects across our supply chain and help to surface key insights and provide reporting to track our progress along the way. 

You will not only be a key expert in the Strategy Team, but will be a key collaborator and thought leader cross-functionally throughout our business. With data to support and key partnerships in place, you’ll be the spotter for overarching trends and will pull together the right people and information to focus us on the most impactful projects. You will be in the unique position to find new ways to structure our goals and new ways to improve the way we work together to increase our impact (more bums wiping, and more toilets built!).

If you worked here this past month here are some things you might have been involved in: 

You’ve conducted an in depth analysis and re-thought the way we apply shipping charges and shared back your insights through a combination of delightful presentation design and digestible data visualisation and modelling to help our Leadership Team enjoy some “ah-a” moments and punny gifs. 

You’ve initiated, ideated and led a brainstorm session with the rest of the Strategy Team (and some super curious stakeholders) to go big on crazy ideas for our FY23 focuses and devised a plan of attack to kick the tires to identify the best ones. 

You’ve found yourself uncovering more questions than answers as you’ve worked through a meaty project and, before getting stuck, you quickly carved out time with our VP of Strategy to help you unlock the next steps. 

You’ve worked with the Supply Chain team to help understand our cost drivers, to improve our margins and build more toilets!

You’ve partnered with external consultants to lead the development for our TP environmental Sustainability Report, explored the commercials for new sales channels and helped spin up new marketing channels.

You’ve taken the lead this month to share the Strategy Team update during our Town Hall Zoom meeting with the rest of the company and patted yourself on the back for some of your finest data visualisation work.

You’ve helped the VP of Supply chain build a dashboard focused on our gross margins for board reporting. 


Let’s talk about you

You’ve likely honed your skills in a management consulting capacity and found yourself craving the opportunity to see your hard work drive impact long term. Your sweet spot is when you’re deep in a partnership and see your ability to blend your commercial acumen with your amazing data chops  bring your analysis to life for your stakeholders. You find yourself building models in your sleep and wake up energised by new ways to present your data and craft a narrative to help get your peers as excited as you are. 

You dive (and dive deeeep) into the data

Spreadsheets and charts are your best friends, and you’ve got a proven ability to digest detailed data sets and distil them down into meaningful insights and recommendations. You’re a pro with all the common data visualisation tools and don’t blink an eye at large, meaty datasets that might leave others with their tail between their legs! Well, not actually, but you get the point. 

You’re a creative problem solver 

You have a drive to find a solution - whatever the challenge may be - and you won’t just take the straight path to get there. You’ll leverage your understanding of our business, your own strategic acumen, and below-the-surface trends (that you’ve made sure to dig out) in order to think outside the box for new ways to approach projects or challenges at hand. 

Collaboration is key to your success

You’ve honed the ability to interact with all business functions to not only uncover their needs, but to understand how to best support and enable them through your partnership and collaboration. You find it equally rewarding supporting a team member in understanding an important data set as you do presenting a business-wide project plan to a Leadership team. Ultimately, you’re out to enable us all to work better together and maximise our impact business-wide.

You see the forest, and the trees. Wait, wow, how cool is that leaf?

You’re a strategic operator and you’re always zooming out to see the big picture, but you never lose sight of the detail and what it will take to execute at an operational level.

Why should you work with us?

First off, there’s the feel good stuff. As a certified B Corp™, we work to make a difference every day while maintaining the highest standards of social and environmental impact. We also believe that helping to make the world a better place shouldn’t have to mean getting paid peanuts — it’s why we offer super competitive salaries, benefits like tailored learning and development opportunities, generous paid parental leave and free toilet paper (yes, you read that right). 

But you don’t have to take our word for it — our employees recently gave us our sixth consecutive Culture Amp engagement score of 90+ and we’ve been named one of BuiltInLA’s “100 Best Places to Work” two years in a row.

Have you made it this far?

If you’re still reading, we think there’s a strong chance you might be our kind of person. Here’s the thing, though — research suggests that 60% of women and underrepresented folks might have already talked themselves out of applying. Even if you don’t check every box above, we want to encourage you to introduce yourself. We believe a diversity of perspectives and experiences makes a team stronger — and the stronger our team, the closer we are to delivering toilets and clean water for all.
