Associate Developer – Mumbai

Job Opening

Mumbai, India


Help us develop products that inspire and ignite human beings worldwide to act and to make organizations, brands, and the planet more meaningful.

Voluntās is a young, busy, and borderline chaotic advisory firm. Armed with a purpose-driven mentality (and a lot of diligence), we work together to make a meaningful impact on our beautiful world.

With our roots in humanistic capitalism, we strive to grasp at the core of meaningfulness. We do this to anchor meaningfulness in leadership, culture, strategy, performance management, and brands – from building purpose to developing strategic narratives, the focus is on measuring and operationalizing meaningfulness.

The Center for Applied Meaningfulness at Voluntas is seeking an Associate to assist in the development of products based on our global research into meaningfulness. From our office in Mumbai, you will join a team of human beings who are management consultants by profession and philosophers by heart. To help our clients leverage the potential of our data-driven insights, we take a humble approach to collecting, storing, processing, and analyzing data. As much as we want to let data speak, we recognize that intuitive product design is necessary for deciding what is relevant – and what is simply noise.

As an associate developer with the Center for Applied Meaningfulness, you will be working closely with other Voluntarians who are developing products that showcase our insights and enable our clients to realize their full potential. Specifically, you will be assisting in the development of a web-based platform that portrays compelling stories about how societies, organizations, brands, and the people inhabiting our planet can change for the better. You will also aid in automating internal processes and building software to enable our team to fulfill its potential.
