Brave is more than a place to work. It’s a way to make a meaningful difference. We’re on a mission to end overdose fatalities. We can’t do it alone. It takes a team.
See what it’s like to work at Brave.
Our values are the backbone of Brave. They guide our choices, actions, products, culture, and how we show up in this world.
Every person has the right to autonomy. This acknowledgement guides how we work with each other, how we design our products, and how we engage with communities.
The overdose epidemic is fundamentally an issue of social justice that has disproportionately affected marginalized communities. We stand in solidarity and co-design our products for and with those who are systemically excluded.
Collaboration is key to ending overdose deaths. We openly exchange knowledge and create solutions with the many other organizations and people on this shared mission.
Human connection is the antithesis of isolation and sits at the heart of everything we do. We work to lower and remove the barriers that promote social isolation.
We trust in one another to make decisions that are aligned with our mission, good for humanity, and based on mutual respect.
Working at Brave is a bit different than what most people are used to.
Creating a more just world starts with us, in how we show up for the job and how we show up for each other.
We’re a lateral organization, which means we all report to each other. We don’t have superiors. We give all team members autonomy over how they work and expect a high degree of accountability from everyone.
We aspire to be a ‘teal’ organization, characterised by self-management, wholeness, and a deeper sense of purpose. If that’s not a familiar term, have a look at the book Reinventing Organizations.
This results in a unique working environment that you won’t find anywhere else.
"I’ve learned a great deal about LOVE, harm reduction and compassion through everyone I've met through Brave. Many are keen to learn more and supportive of any effort to prevent overdose and death, and then there are a few who step up and SERVE this community. Some fine folks share a belief that it’s not "every man for themselves", rather we're building a culture of awareness and action to demonstrate what's possible."
