Want to earn £100 for Christmas shopping?

We’re looking for professionals to talk with about a new product we’re building, in return for a handy £100. Interested?

Over the last few months, we’ve been building a new online supply chain analytics and reporting product inside amee.

Testing the product, not just the app

We’ve been running in private beta for the last few weeks, and we’re now looking for a few key users we can sit down with in person and interview.

These sessions wouldn’t take longer than an hour, and would normally be held in our London offices.

We want to know whether we’re solving problems they care enough about to pay for. 

As a result we’re looking to reach some fairly specific kinds of people for a product testing session:

1) CSR professionals working in medium to large companies

We’re looking for people working in medium to large (500 + employees) companies in a CSR capacity, who have an overall responsibility for understanding a company’s environmental footprint, and reporting its emissions.

2) General managers working in SMEs with more than 30 people in them,

We’re also looking for people without deep experience with sustainability, but have been responsible for filling out paperwork for joining preferred supplier lists, and having to explain their company’s green credentials.

Specifically, if you work in a general management position in a company of between 30 – 500 employees, and this kind of work ends up on your desk, it would be great to hear from you.

3) Environmentally minded SME founders

If you are the founder of a small-medium size (less than 500 employees) company and are using sustainability as a differentiating factor when selling, and consider yourself an early adopter in this field, we’d also like to hear from you too.

Ideally, you’ve been in business a few years, and have a background working outside of sustainability before setting up your most recent company.

What do these involve?

These are not sales demos, and we are not trying to sell anything with these sessions.

Our main goal is understanding the problem we’re solving from a user’s point of view.

Roughly speaking these sessions would comprise of:

  1. a run-through of what we’ve built so far, to check that it’s usable and can be easily understood by people using it.
  2. a conversation about the problem we’re solving for customers, and the solution we’ve come up with.
We’re building a new product, so we’re keen to see how well our understanding of the problem matches that of our users, and what parts of the problem are the most valuable to solve.

We expect each session would take between 45 minutes – 1 hour.

Will you compensate me for the time I am giving?

Yes! We’re a small startup, but we appreciate asking for an hour of your time, so if you fit the descriptions above and can meet us in person, we’d offer a £100 for your time.

If you’d prefer or its easier to sell at work, we’re more than happy to make a donation to a charitable cause in yours or your company’s name instead.

When and where are these being run?

We’re running most of these sessions inside AMEE’s offices by Old Street Roundabout, but we’re also happy to come to you in your office if calendars allow.

We have a few slots left this week on Thursday 13th and Friday 14th December, but we will also be running testing again on in the second week of January.

Where do I sign up?

The best step here is to send an email to me, chris.adams@amee.com, saying which of the three dates listed above you would be free for.

We’ll then follow up to book in a session, and when we’re done testing, you will have an extra £100 for Christmas shopping.
 
Alternatively, if you’d prefer we make a donation to a charity of your choice instead, like one of our earlier testers, we’re more than happy to do that too.
 
Merry Christmas!
 

Update

These sessions turned out to be fantasticly useful, and we’re running some more in 2013, in the week beginning Jan 21st. 

If you missed this the first time round and you think you’re be a good fit for coming along to a testing session with us, we’d love to hear from you. Don’t be shy!
