At Founders Pledge, our mission is to empower entrepreneurs to do immense good. Since launching in 2015, we’ve raised over $5 billion for the most impactful social causes. We offer the simplest path to impact for successful entrepreneurs, providing end-to-end giving infrastructure, pioneering research, and access to a worldwide network of experts. In other words, we help tech leaders become strategic philanthropists. Our 1600+ members include the people behind industry-leading companies such as Airbnb, UiPath, Dropbox, Skype, Spotify, and Uber.
We’re looking for a passionate Growth Lead to join our global Growth team, to help us build relationships with founders and executives of the top tech companies in the US. You’ll invite them to pledge to commit to giving a portion of their exit proceeds to charity, and will personally raise over $100m in pledges per year for charity, contributing to our team’s $1bn+ annual target. You’ll also help grow participants in our Equity for Impact program, bringing on-board tech companies anticipating liquidity events, to encourage individual employee giving. Combined with Founders Pledge’s focus on high impact philanthropy, there are few roles which can have as much positive social impact. You’ll report to our Growth Director.
This is a brilliant opportunity to lead and build our presence in the US, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on finding entrepreneurs based in the Bay Area and New York who are committed to maximizing the impact of their future philanthropy. If you’re energized by meeting interesting entrepreneurs and have strong sales skills, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
You'll be responsible for:
Location: San Francisco
Salary: $100k-$120k DOE
This role is perfect for someone who has:
WHY WORK WITH US?
You can find more about the benefits we offer here, but what makes us truly special is both our mission and our people. We’re a diverse team, from both charitable and commercial backgrounds, who believe that amazing things can happen when we tackle problems together. We offer a flat structure and an opportunity to help shape the future of philanthropy.
We have a global flexible first approach to working, which means that although for this role you’ll need to be based in/around San Francisco, we offer the flexibility to work from home. You’ll need a reliable home wifi connection, but we’ll provide you with everything else you need to be successful in your role. You’ll have the option to use a desk in a co-working space close to your home, as often as you like. On top of this, we bring the global team together twice per year!
There is no closing date for applications and we will interview on a rolling basis.
