People Operations Coordinator (Part Time)

About OpenCorporates

OpenCorporates exists to make information about companies and the corporate world more accessible, more discoverable, and more usable, and thus give citizens, community groups, journalists, other companies, and society as a whole the ability to understand, monitor and regulate them.

Our mission

OpenCorporates is the largest open database of companies and company data in the world, with in excess of 170 million companies from over 130 jurisdictions. Our primary goal is to make information on companies more usable and more widely available for public benefit, particularly to tackle the use of companies for criminal or anti-social purposes, for example corruption, money laundering and organised crime.

By charging commercial users for proprietary access to the structured data, we can make our data available for free to journalists, NGOs and academics via our website and API. You can read more about the impact we have, and the data side of things, on our blog.
