ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION:
Team Rubicon is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves communities by mobilizing military veterans to continue their service, leveraging their skills and experience to help people prepare, respond, and recover from disasters and humanitarian crises. Founded in 2010 with an initial team of eight, Team Rubicon (TR) now has more than 100,000 volunteers and has conducted over 400 disaster response operations across the country and around the world.
Through continued service, Team Rubicon seeks to provide veterans with three things they lose after leaving the military: a purpose, gained through disaster relief; community, built by serving with others; and identity, from recognizing the impact one individual can make. Coupled with leadership development and other opportunities, Team Rubicon looks to help veterans transition from military to civilian life.
Across the world, disasters are a part of life. No corner of the globe is spared from severe weather – be it crippling winter storms, catastrophic hurricanes, or unchecked wildfires. By focusing on underserved or economically-challenged communities, Team Rubicon seeks to makes the largest impact possible. Disasters represent a massive financial cost, and by providing immediate relief work, free of cost, TR aims to help communities begin recovery sooner.
Team Rubicon’s rapid growth is built upon our unique business model that connects the unparalleled capabilities of veterans with a new, humanitarian mission. But more importantly, our success is built on the grit, talent and commitment of our people. Our culture requires individuals foolish enough to think they can change the world, and smart enough to have a shot. Every day is a challenge, but every challenge brings opportunities to help disaster-affected communities when they need it most. We’re looking for a leader with demonstrated ability to adapt, overcome and achieve in a fast-moving, fast-growing, mission-driven environment. Only the most awesome candidates should apply, period.
Team Rubicon has won numerous industry awards, but more notably has been named to Inc.’s “Best Workplaces” list in 2018 and 2019, and the Nonprofit Times’ “Top Nonprofits to Work For in America” in 2015, 2016, and 2017 - when they were #1.
