Bloomberg Philanthropies works to create catalytic change across five areas of focus: arts and culture, education, the environment, government innovation, and public health. Our mission is to ensure better, longer lives for the greatest number of people. Our approach is rooted in Mike Bloomberg's unique experience and success across the field of business, government, and philanthropy.
The Government Innovation programs build the capacity of local governments to solve problems effectively. Its initiatives – ranging from large-scale international innovation competitions to domestic efforts that help mayors hone their management skills and better use data in decision-making – equip local leaders with practical tools and approaches they can use to address local challenges. We currently invest in more than 200 municipal governments worldwide through grants, technical assistance, and participation programs. Our team strives to be collegial and collaborative with an orientation toward learning at the individual, group, and portfolio levels. We are energized to advance our mission, while also working to ensure team members have full and balanced lives and opportunities for growth.
We are seeking a Senior Program Manager to oversee What Works Cities – one of the largest-ever philanthropic efforts to improve cities’ use of data and evidence. In this role we will trust you to monitor and ensure success of program initiatives and to provide strategic guidance for program expansion and scale. You’ll serve as a “thought partner” to grantees and partners, helping to solve problems and drive project success.
You will also provide day-to-day management and oversight of multi-million dollar, multi-year investments in key cities. You will be joining our team at a critical time, as Bloomberg Philanthropies is significantly scaling up its data programming across the Americas; for the first time, Latin American and Canadian cities are eligible to participate in these robust technical assistance and networking efforts.
