Freelance Marketing Strategist for 2 sided marketplace

Hobby Society – Posted by hobbysociety Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Job Description


Hobby Society(  is a Sydney-based startup that is creating an online community marketplace for hobbyists. In this two sided marketplace, people can either provide or use a service based around 3 areas:

  • Skills transfer (teaching a class, posting blogs, answering questions to forums)
  • Community connections (connecting with those who share your passion in Sydney)
  • Tools, equipment and spaces (renting out elements required to do a hobby)


Initially there is a focus on three hobbies: woodworking, pottery and cooking, but ultimately we want to expand to all creative hobbies. We are still developing our market place- we are currently offering classes and space hire but have yet to deploy the community elements such as forums.


We are a friendly and young team of four (two girls and two guys) with varied backgrounds from engineering (including software), economics, medicine and data. As a company we value creativity, community and connections. We would love the right person to join us on this journey.
