  • You’re able to come up with creative and realistic steps forward as part of a project team. 
  • You are ambitious, thoughtful, and creative. 
  • You are comfortable making decisions based on both qualitative and quantitative assessment.

The Shah Foundation is a focused team and things move quickly here -- we’re looking for someone comfortable in a role that will often look different day-to-day.
