Job description:

what3words is a global addressing company that has given every 3m x 3m square on the planet an address of 3 random words – for example, our London office is located at ///index.home.raft. 3 word addresses are more accurate than street addresses or postcodes, but much easier to remember and communicate than 16 digit lat-long coordinates. Please read more here: [HIDDEN] and do follow the links to have a look at our map too. You may also be interested in this example of a current project using our technology, in South Africa: [HIDDEN]

We are currently working to launch a variety of Indian language versions of our map, so that every 3m2 of the globe will have its own unique 3 word address in six or more Indian languages. The job comprises two main phases:

1) making sure that the best, most common words in your language are used, and
2) making sure that no unsuitable words end up in the 3 word addresses.

If you are interested in working with us, please write to me at [HIDDEN] - attaching your CV and using “what3words [LANGUAGE] consultancy” as the email subject header. Before expressing your interest in our project, please familiarise yourself with our website thoroughly and explore our map. We’d love to hear what you think of what3words as well as what your English 3 word address at home is (you can find this on our map at [HIDDEN] - the search bar accepts usual street addresses as well as 3 word addresses).

Work: freelance from home (computer and internet access needed)

Duration: 4 months in total from commencement of project. The deadline for applying to the role is Sunday 18 March.
