Associate, Products & Engagement
- Location: New York, NY
- Contract Type: Full-time
- Closing Date: 29/10/2016
JUST Capital is a social enterprise, structured as a 501(c)3, that is establishing a new market information platform that aligns corporate behavior with the values of the American public. Our goal is to drive tangible and measurable change in the behavior of companies on the issues Americans care most about. Each and every year we will conduct a large-scale nationwide poll, and deploy advanced social media and research techniques to give people a say in how companies should act, and then provide them with information on how companies are acting.
JUST Capital will be the definitive source of information and rankings on how corporations perform on the issues people care most about. The centerpiece of the platform we are building is the JUST Index: an objective, transparent benchmark of corporate performance built around America’s definition of JUST. The Index will allow users to examine the top publicly traded companies in the country to see how they perform on all the issues deemed to be important. Our platform will also provide the tools needed to help consumers, employees, concerned citizens, investors, corporate leaders and others make more informed decisions about where to buy, work and invest.
The American people believe that company value can and should be measured in ways that go beyond simply short-term profits. The JUST Platform, and the research underpinning it, provides companies with a new kind of market guidance based on clear and unfiltered signals from the public. We will help companies cut through the confusion over what it actually means to act in a more balanced and responsible fashion, and help them to better understand and react to the values, preferences, and real-world tradeoffs of their stakeholders.
