Open Philanthropy is aiming to hire a Finance Associate (title flexible, e.g. we would consider “Finance Operations Lead” or “Financial Controller” depending on experience level) to oversee our bookkeeping and finance operations. Our staff of ~40 currently gives away over $150 million per year with the aim of doing as much good as we can per dollar, in causes like criminal justice reform, farm animal welfare, and potential risks from advanced artificial intelligence. Over the next decade, we plan to increase our giving by several times while continuing to raise our bar for impact.
We will be evaluating applications on a rolling basis, and will keep this job posting up until the role is filled. If you have any questions about applying, please contact email@example.com.

We think this might be a particularly exciting role for someone interested in taking ownership of building out a young, growing organization’s finance function. While we’re open to many levels of seniority and experience, a successful candidate with a solid background in accounting can expect to have significant autonomy in deciding what projects to take on, how their work should be done, and how we should plan for the future of our finance operations.
You might be a good fit if you:
If this sounds like you, and if you are interested in using your finance and accounting expertise at an organization dedicated to improving the world as much as possible, we hope you’ll apply. We’d also be willing to consider individuals with significantly more experience and would be open to customizing and expanding the job duties based on skills, experience, and fit with Open Phil’s needs.
We are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and encourage individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply. We especially encourage applications from self-identified women and people of color who are excited about contributing to our mission. Open Philanthropy is an equal opportunity employer. If you need assistance or an accommodation due to a disability, or have any other questions about applying, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
