We seek mission-driven candidates who want to be part of an organization dedicated to improving the lives of low-income people. During the recruitment process, we try to ensure that candidates have an opportunity to engage with various members of both the hiring teams and the Human Resources department. Our goal is to identify exceptional candidates who will thrive and deliver exceptional results once hired. An applicant can expect to be engaged in the process anywhere from an average of two to six weeks.

Let’s go over the steps of the hiring process:

The Application

Potential hires should complete the application per the requirements listed for the position that they are interested in. Some applications will require a writing sample or a sample of the applicant’s coding skills depending on the responsibilities of the position. The uploaded documents may be course-related materials or documents from an independent project that was monitored by someone with a professional background in research. Please note that applicants will not proceed to the next step if they have not followed the application instructions.
