We're Hiring an Operations Associate – Apply Today!
Looking for a launching pad for a career in social change? New Media Ventures (NMV) is hiring an Operations Associate to help us take our work to the next level! This is a new full-time role based in Oakland, CA and reporting to our Managing Director. The last two years have been an incredibly exciting time for NMV, and we’re thrilled to hire a new team member who will help refine and strengthen our operations. The role will give you unparalleled visibility into the workings of a complex entity, spanning legal, fundraising, investing, and strategy. It will also set up the right candidate to move into a leadership position over time.
NMV invests in entrepreneurs and activists wrestling with the biggest challenges facing our democracy. We work to shift power to benefit more people, and support companies and organizations that are telling new stories, building advocacy movements, and driving civic engagement. In the past 9 years, we have funded over 70 startups, from Upworthy and Blavity to Indivisible, Coworker, Mijente, and Vote.org. Our annual open call receives hundreds of applications from the most innovative leaders in the progressive movement, and gives us an incomparable view of a rapidly changing field. Learn more on our website.
You’re a self-starter who’s extremely organized and thrives in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment. You like to take ownership, solve problems where you see them, and help out when needed. No task is too small for you, but you’re constantly thinking about smarter, faster ways to accomplish what you’re doing without sacrificing quality. You’re the ultimate team player who can pinch hit to push projects to completion.
We particularly encourage people who are underrepresented in the investment and startup space to apply. NMV prioritizes equity and inclusion. We recognize that diversity of perspectives and experiences makes our work better.
Note: NMV has an executive assistant who supports the team with scheduling, travel planning and data entry. These tasks will not be part of the operations associate’s responsibilities.
The application deadline for this role is May 20, 2019.
