Excited to create impact together?

You will join an entrepreneurial, agile and professional team who empowers each other through trust and transparency to drive change. We will set our priorities together but you will have the opportunity to self-manage your own time and efforts, while knowing you will be supported. Above all, you will join a team who sees each other as fellow humans, not always perfect but we will build together, fail together, laugh together, learn together and grow together!

Who are we looking for?

You have a knack for planning while maintaining financial oversight. You take initiative to extend outcomes and impact. You are interested and have experience in one or more of the following topics: healthcare, technology and digital, education, circular economy, zero waste, sustainability and space design.

Operations Manager

You are excited to run a purpose-driven co-working space on a daily basis. You have a knack for details but can also be strategic when setting up new processes that are scalable. You enjoy creating templates and standards to make life easier for your team and community.

Community Manager

You love hosting and taking care of the big and small needs of our members on a regular and daily basis. You are passionate about connecting people, businesses and partners around the globe. You are energized from being within our community, and enjoy bringing positive vibes to our co-working space.

As part of our activities we are creating an Impact Hub Space in the Dreispitz area in Basel.

There is an existing building office that needs rebuilding to truly reflect Impact Hub values and inspiration for day to day work. The building is owned by Christoph Merian Stiftung (CMS) and is part of a long term project in transforming the Dreispitz from a logistics and industrial area to an urban city cluster. Our Impact Hub Basel will be one of the entry points into this new Dreispitz.

We will be collaborating with CMS and the architects that will transform the building. There will be office/coworking spaces, an event area and a zero-waste café. We will be part of the rebuilding project and we will guide the project from the requirements side, defining what makes a space a typical Impact Hub space. Together with an external consultancy, we defined the requirement from the Impact Hub Basel side. We are planning to include part of our future community in the process and conduct design thinking workshops to define our members requirements of the space. During the planning and rebuilding phase, we will be an active part of the project and will make sure our requirements are met within an appropriate budget.

The planning process from the architects has started in early August 2018, rebuilding the space will start in the fall of 2018 and we should be able to open the space and the café Q2/2019. You will be part of the Impact Hub team, with one of the co-founders as your project partner and most of the current Impact Hub Basel team as your supporter (and vice versa).
