Open Philanthropy has been growing a lot (we’ve roughly doubled our staff size over the past year and a half), and the Recruiting Team is responsible for making sure we can continue to rapidly add to our headcount without lowering our bar for talent. Our core areas of work include:
- Helping hiring managers and teams at Open Philanthropy hire top talent as seamlessly as possible. Recruiters typically manage several rounds at a time, and are responsible for maintaining a clean candidate pipeline and high standards for hiring manager and candidate experience.
- Developing Open Philanthropy’s strategy for proactive candidate outreach and pipeline building, with a focus on helping Open Philanthropy reach out to a broader and more diverse set of candidates.
- Integrating candidate and hiring manager feedback to improve our hiring practices and resources. We have many different internal hiring teams with different norms, talent pools and cultures — our goal is to design flexible solutions that work for as many teams as possible, while maintaining a cohesive candidate experience and employer brand.
As a team, we especially value finding ways to make our process more truth-seeking and calibrated over time, identifying “superstar” candidates who will add unusual amounts of value to Open Phil, and treating candidates well.
Who we’re looking for
No recruiting experience is required, but we will be looking for at least a year or two of operations-relevant experience, as well as evidence that you’ve successfully managed fast-moving processes without dropping balls. You might be a great fit for this work if you:
- Like to move fast, get things done and prioritize aggressively; we generally treat all recruiting work as urgent by default.
- Are conscientious and attentive to detail — you’ll obsess over maintaining a clean candidate pipeline and make sure (almost) nothing falls through the cracks.
- Get granular about systems; you’re skilled at breaking complex workflows down and taking them apart to make sure they’re working as well as possible.
- Enjoy thinking about people, and figuring out what they’d be good at and where they could contribute — we’re often trying to take a broad view of each candidate to figure out what the ideal role for them might look like, taking the entire organization’s needs into account.
- Are excited about Open Philanthropy’s mission, core cultural values and the work we’re doing across cause areas and worldviews. You’ll be able to convey what’s special about the organization to candidates, while remaining open and calibrated (we try to keep our process transparent, not salesy).
Bonus points for:
- Experience with CRM system design or data management and reconciliation (we have a lot of data we’d like to manage more effectively).
- Strong, existing networks relevant to our talent needs (particularly within the longtermist, rationality and/or effective altruism communities).
Role details & benefits
- Compensation: The baseline compensation for this role is $104,132.47, which (for US hires) would be distributed as a base salary of $90,549.97 and an unconditional 401(k) grant of $13,582.50.
- These compensation figures assume a remote location; there would be geographic adjustments upwards for candidates based in the San Francisco Bay Area or Washington, D.C.
- All compensation will be distributed in the form of take-home salary for internationally-based hires.
- Time zones and location: You can work from anywhere. While we are not able to sponsor visas for this role, we are open to hires outside the US willing to consistently overlap with US business hours for 5-6 hours of the day.
- Benefits: Our benefits package includes:
- Excellent health insurance (we cover 100% of premiums within the US for you and any dependents)
- Dental, vision and life insurance for you and your family
- Four weeks of PTO recommended per year
- Four months of fully paid family leave
- A generous and flexible expense policy — we encourage staff to expense the ergonomic equipment, software and other services that they need to stay healthy and productive
- Support for remote work — we’ll cover a remote workspace outside your home if you need one, or connect you with an Open Phil co-working hub in your city
- We can’t always provide every benefit we offer US staff to international hires, but we’re working on it (and will usually provide cash equivalents of any benefits we can’t offer in your country)
- Start date: We’d like a candidate to start as soon as possible after receiving an offer, but are willing to wait for the right candidate.
We’re considering applicants on a rolling basis. Please apply as soon as you’re able — we may give priority to candidates who are able to move through the process sooner.
We aim to employ people with many different experiences, perspectives and backgrounds who share our passion for accomplishing as much good as we can. We are committed to creating an environment where all employees have the opportunity to succeed, and we do not discriminate based on race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or any other legally protected status.
