screen-shot-2016-08-26-at-10-18-18-pm We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors.
We borrow it from our children.

Earth Company is an award-winning social enterprise empowering change-makers in the Asia Pacific. Our mission? To leave behind a better world for future generations.


We’re looking for people who share our values to join us on this mission.


At Earth Company, we take a modern, flexible approach to our work. Our team is a collective of digital nomads – without a fixed location or office, we work across continents and time-zones, making the most of the technologies available to us to work in whatever place and at whatever time suits us.


We believe that by respecting a work style that suits our individual lifestyles and circumstances, we will be a happier and more productive team, attracting highly talented and capable individuals whose circumstances may not lend themselves to more traditional work styles. So whether you’re a recent mother who needs to work in the evenings from home in the mountains of Japan, or you prefer to work early mornings from a café in San Francisco, we believe you should be able to do work that you find rewarding, in a way that best suits you.

Currently Hiring – Program Manager:


We are currently looking for an exceptional program manager who can lead the organization’s flagship program that empowers change-makers from around the Asia Pacific region.  This is a unique opportunity to work in an innovative, international team consisting of passionate, driven people working from their homes in Tokyo, Nagano, and Bali, while contributing to something meaningful and fulfilling.

  • We expect the program manager to work at least half-time (50%) and up to full-time (100%) depending on expertise, availability, etc. Starting as early as 1 April 2018 (start date negotiable).    
  • While Earth Company believes in nomadic workstyle in general, we prefer the program manager to be located either in Tokyo, Japan or Bali, Indonesia, with occasional work trips between the two locations and other geographies.
