The Brookings Institution estimates that the theoretical amount of money required to move everyone from below the poverty line up to the poverty line is $80B a year. The government aid sector currently spends $140B each year, while US charitable giving is about $400B annually. Much of those funds go towards interventions known not to work or lacking any evidence at all. We want to change that by establishing cash as a benchmark (like Vanguard did with index funds for the financial industry), and in the process accelerate the end of extreme poverty.
GD has raised over $200m since launching in 2011, delivered cash to more than 125,000 families, and launched offices in 7 countries. We’ve also supported large-scale, experimental research that indicates strong recipient impact of our programs. As a result GD has been celebrated as one of the most innovative non-profit companies by Fast Company, while the growing cash transfer movement and GD’s leading role within it have been featured in the New York Times Magazine, This American Life, Foreign Affairs, and The Economist.
We’re looking for exceptional talent to create and administer processes that are critical to GD's mission and next phase of growth. Our culture is blunt, analytical, non-hierarchical, and fast-paced. We recruit candidates from top organizations across all industries - our team has hailed from consultancies, investment banks, start-ups, non-profits, and government to name a few. We offer competitive salary and benefits and performance-based bonuses. Read more about our values below.
You'll be responsible for creating and managing processes to protect GD's recipients and team, ensuring GD can continue to deliver funds to some of the poorest people in the world.
