We are a small start up that just launched a unique food, a highly sustainable product containing 20% cricket flour. Edible insects are the new big thing in food because they are healthy and farming takes a lot less resources compared with cattle.
Our pasta has already received wide press coverage and social media attention. But we are a very small team and we need some help. We come from different countries and we speak English in our office. We are based in Thailand because this is the motherland of edible insects, with 20,000 cricket farmers. And also because is an amazing life experience.

Bangkok is an International city with 300,000 western expats and a vivid social life. The city is very safe, safer than most of the western cities. Here you can learn about the Asian way of living and thinking, which is incredibly peculiar and interesting. And you can learn about marketing communication and other tasks we perform here.
The start up founder had been a marketing executive for 20 years before leaving Italy and heading East. Since July 2017, he is sharing his time between Shanghai (for another edible insect project) and Bangkok. When in Shanghai, he usually connects via Skype for daily updates with the volunteers.
We need help with content production, and social media marketing for 5 hours per day, 5 days a week (from 10 am to 4 pm, with one hour lunch break). Content are about food sustainability, edible insects and sometimes our products and our initiatives. Marketing and sales activities are rare and are never more than 10 or 20% of your time.
The ideal period is 2 months (or more), because there is a learning curve - you may need a couple of weeks before you know enough. We do not have spare computers, therefore we expect you to come with your own laptop.
As of now, the team includes an American and a German. We work in a nice townhouse in the city center, in a quiet alley but a few hundred meters from restaurants and clubs.
Since most of the work is about content production, marketing and so on, we require volunteer to have a computer (their own laptop).
If a volunteer is accepted, we strongly suggest to read some articles about edible insects as a healthy and sustainable source of food. That would help being quickly part of what we do here. We can provide some readings and pointers.
We offer free accommodation in our townhouse or a room in an apartment not far from the office.
In rare cases and for a few days we may have a guest and ask you to share the room with another volunteer, if the gender is the same. But usually you have your own exclusive room and you only share the bathroom with another volunteer.
We provide a very simple breakfast (bread, butter, jam, coffee, tea), and during working days we also provide lunch (at a small Thai family eatery near our place). You can also use the kitchen in the office to make your own food.
Our place is in the city center, a few meters from the skytrain and not far from the underground and the airport link train. The surroundings are packed with coffee shops and restaurants and a multi-cultural environment.
