About Us

 

why social impact?

Career success is no longer defined only by how much you make but also by how much impact you have. More professionals are choosing their jobs by the impact they can have on the world. 30% of millennials identify meaningful work as the single most important factor for a successful career.

All our job descriptions require a short impact statement to appeal to the job seeker's search for meaning. The statement speaks to what companies and departments posting with Bmeaningful are doing to make a difference.
 

how we're different

We're founded on the belief that there's more to a job than a paycheque (but that's still important). We're a career site that connects professionals and companies looking to make a difference; your single source for everything there is to know about meaningful work. Whether that means turning your passion into your career, hiring the right person or insights on how to do your job better.

Our mission is to empower and educate professionals looking to make a difference and connect them with the companies that need their time, skills and passion.
 

what's with the purple sheep?

The Purple Sheep metaphor was inspired by conversations describing the pressure to go into high profile corporate jobs (aka the corporate herd) and the feeling that the herd mentality had led them astray.

After interviewing professionals in corporate social responsibility, non-profit and social purpose businesses, we realized there were alternative career options that allowed you to use your skills for good without sacrificing a paycheque. We started calling these professionals, the Purple Sheep, as they've successfully broken away from the herd. The image of a Purple Sheep has become our symbol for the corporate dreamer who uses their skills for good.
 

How do we define meaningful?

Our definition of meaningful is community defined. Words in quotation marks are from people like you and may continue to evolve.

Examples of Bmeaningful jobs include a sustainability manager for a retailer, a social finance professional for an investment firm, an accountant for a non-profit or a marketing manager for a B Corp. Focusing on meaningful jobs ensures that you get access to talented professionals with the skills and the passion you are looking for.
 

The team

Founded in 2013 by MBA school colleagues and friends, Amanda Minuk and Devon Huber.
As two self-proclaimed Purple Sheep, Amanda and Devon know the importance of doing meaningful work.

During business School, Amanda worked as a marketing intern for a consumer package goods company and realized that it was more important for her to believe in the mission of the brand than selling one more cracker. With that “AHA” moment, she broke away from the herd and pursued marketing for a global NGO before starting Bmeaningful.

Early in Devon's professional career, he also worked for a consumer packaged goods company putting his Engineering training to use. The company was great and the people were amazing but he couldn't get past the idea that there had to be more to a job than what amounted to packaging cookies. Devon made his move and broke away from herd, changing his career path to work in renewable energy.
