Who We Are

Vesta Dry has invented the world’s first super-compact, energy efficient clothes dryer made from sustainable materials. Our flagship product, the Vesta 1, can dry a mixed load of laundry 4x faster than a drying rack while using 95% less electricity than a traditional tumble dryer.

Why You?

You care about our mission to improve the planet and you are excited about representing a sustainable, environmentally-conscious lifestyle brand.

Why Now?

In just a few months we are launching our crowdfunding campaign. We need someone who can help us achieve our goal of running the most successful Kickstarter campaign of all time.

Your Role

As the Global Brand Ambassador, you are an enthusiastic and hard-working team player who loves solving problems. You are bursting with passion, energy and enthusiasm and you’re a serial overachiever who lives for the big moments in life.

  • Get smart. Your first step is to build a comprehensive database of like-minded communities to help us spread the word about Vesta Dry.
  • Get hustling. Once you understand the community ecosystem, your goal is to connect with these communities to build win-win partnerships.
  • Get social. You have a knack for social media and you know how to mobilize a passionate group of followers. We are building one of the largest communities of laundry obsessors, environmentalists and sustainability enthusiasts. You will be responsible for working directly with our community and mobilizing them to help spread the word.
  • Get loud. As our biggest advocate, your #1 job is to get out there and get loud. Whether it’s partaking in online discussions, joining in-person events in your local city, networking with in-field professionals or even just speaking with your friends and family, you aren’t afraid to put yourself out there and share our story with the world.
  • Get assistance. We are building one of the world’s largest networks of city ambassadors and volunteers who have offered to help us in our mission. As their leader, you will be responsible for coordinating marketing and community efforts with individuals located around the globe. You will identify which types of guerrilla marketing efforts are working best and communicate these best practices to our network of volunteers.
  • Get excited. This is your chance to leave your mark on the world.

A day in the life...

Unlike everyone else, Monday is your favourite day of the week. You run your morning meeting with our global team of city ambassadors (volunteers) and set the strategy for the entire group. You’ve gleaned some insights and feedback from one particularly successful city ambassador, and wrote up a summary of those tactics to share with the rest of the community. By mid-day you’re going through your email and booking meetings with online community leaders (bloggers, vloggers, influencers, etc.) to tell them about our upcoming Kickstarter launch. In the late afternoon you shift focus and head over to Linkedin where you’re looking to connect with industry leaders who can give us feedback and advice.

You’re on the phone with our graphic design ninja to set the priorities for the week. You’ve thought up a creative social media campaign and you need some help perfecting the artwork. By early afternoon you’re scheduling some social media posts for all of our major platforms. Later in the evening you’re applying for startup awards that will help raise awareness of our innovative product. You help us put together a compelling application that rises to the top of the pile. During our weekly meeting later that night, you tell everyone about the great news: Vesta Dry has been awarded a slot to pitch at a highly-regarded pitch competition!

Today you have a bunch of research to do. We figured out that there is a whole community of people who are obsessed with products designed for small spaces. Through your research and a bit of hacking around, you compile a list of 50 communities that would benefit from learning about Vesta Dry. Because you’re a go-getter, you stop at nothing to get their attention and try whatever means necessary to establish a connection. For one popular instagram account, you send a DM. For one of the leading newsletters, you subscribe to their newsletter and work backwards by replying to your welcome email. Once you finally break through, you book a calendar invite for a quick video call and tell them the Vesta Dry story. You figure out if their members/readers/followers would benefit from something like Vesta Dry and propose a partnership angle that is compelling and mutually beneficial.

Thursday starts with great news. You’ve heard back from 5 new volunteers over the weekend who would like to be city ambassadors. You reach out to each of them individually and send them the link to the online application where they can formally apply for the role. Then someone emails you to tell you that the application has a bug. You quickly jump into the backend of the form to patch up the bug. While you’re there, you decide to download a report and you see that website referrals from our facebook page are up 300% week-over-week. You make note of this in Slack to notify the rest of the team and present your assumptions at our next team meeting. While you’re on Slack, you ping the head of growth marketing and ask for his help with an A/B test that you want to run.

You worked all day on Saturday and Sunday last week, leaving you breathing room to take this Friday off. You’re enjoying a long weekend with friends and family.

Why You'll Love It

  • It’s exciting. You will get to work in a fast-paced startup environment with a group of smart and ambitious team members.

  • Have a real impact. At Vesta Dry you will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with our core team, including the Founder and CEO, to help us in our mission to deliver forward-thinking innovation for the home and our environment.
