What Are We Doing?
We are members of an innovative communications venture. Together with our members, we are building a new messaging service (across multiple channels) that will bring closeness to life. This new service addresses people's desire for more open messaging between friends, family and close acquaintances; an environment:
- Without exposure â€“ a safe and secure environment, created through personal invitations and not exposed to strangers;
- Without formality â€“ expressing yourself in a very direct, open and transparent way; 'without dress';
- Without inhibition â€“ â€œrawâ€ content takes precedence over form;
- Without frills â€“ optimized short-form message types enables simpler, single purpose communication;
- Without appointment â€“ an 'in life' way of staying in touch and sharing experiences, without having to co-ordinate or schedule others beforehand.
Open Messaging is a movement as much as a service, and is born through people who
embrace the same purpose and opportunity.

Who Are We Looking For?
Many people can write in a conversational style, but few can engage people effectively across different media. Fewer can combine that skill with the ability to be a good listener, and to reflect collective opinions rather than simply their own. And fewer still can also engage individuals directly and more personally.
We are looking for someone who can do all of the above; someone who will represent the collective voice within Naked, and especially that of all the members in Canada; who will encourage others, particularly in Canada, to participate in open messaging and/or in Naked; who will spark members to share the service and participate in its development.
How Does It Work?
Naked is launching its service across English-speaking markets, with extra emphasis in three countries: UK; Canada; USA. There will be a dedicated Community Voice residing in UK, Canada and USA, to localize the way we engage our members (in terms of communication style; content; cultural/contextual relevance; type of engagement initiatives) both online and offline.
The Naked service is represented by the Community Voice in the UK, when the origin of online visitors/members is either from the UK or unclear. For members in Canada and USA, the Naked service is represented by their own respective Community Voice. All Community Voices are involved in Naked chatter online that occurs outside the service â€“ in respective local websites and collectively in selected larger social networks. Each Community Voice takes the lead in execution of relevant offline communication initiatives in their respective country.
Is This For Me?
In this role you will blog, lead the open messaging debate online, identify and recruit fellow Sparks (like-minded early adopters) to join Naked, work with grassroots partners (existing socially oriented organizations with a community of participants), and lead offline initiatives to bring Naked to life.
