We’d like to help applicants and hiring managers coordinate, so we’ve set up two hiring threads. 

So: consider sharing your information if you are hiring for positions in EA!

Please only post if you personally are part of the hiring company—no recruiting firms or job boards. Only one post per company, per month.

If it isn't a household name, please explain what your company does.[1]

See the latest similar thread on Hacker News for example postings.

This was inspired by the talks around an EA common application, especially this comment. We thought it might be useful to replicate the "Who wants to be hired?" and "Who's hiring?" threads from the Hacker News forum.

This thread is a test

We’re not sure how much it will help, or how we should improve future similar attempts. So if you have any feedback, we’d love to hear it. (Please leave it as a comment or message us.)

ALERT (the active longtermist emergency response team) is looking for a Director to lead the project.

The role is fully funded and we've organised fiscal sponsorship from a UK registered charity. We have a longlist of reservists and interest from people at Rethink Priorities, Our World in Data, Bluedot, ALLFED, and CEA.

Some good characteristics for the job:

  • Resilience. It's possible that your decisions will have major consequences, in a relatively short time.
  • Ability to function well in crisis situations. Our impression is that this is a relatively stable trait in people - if you repeatedly find yourself, for example, being the first one to stop at a car accident, or dealing with first aid or work emergencies, you're probably the right kind of person. If, on the other hand, you dread situations like this and hope someone else will respond, it's probably not the role for you.
  • Excellent operations skills.
  • Experience with either research or research management.

And responsibilities:

Building readiness

  • You’ll build teams specialising in biosecurity, AI, great power conflict, and Other. Each to share ops, comms, software, and data science support.
  • Track team skills, encourage training to fill gaps
  • Responsible for activating teams in response to early warnings
  • Maintain a register of the team’s wider network 
  • Liaise with related organisations 
  • Commission relevant forecasts 
  • Prepare annual horizon scanning report

Operations

  • Make the call to activate based on forecaster input
  • Co-organise an annual wargame for each team, likely in-person 
  • Collect status reports from reservists
  • Deploy discretionary budget towards reservists (e.g. researchers, forecasters, ops), contractors, project management / HR software, etc. as needed.

Strategy

  • Leading ALERT strategy-setting, choice of triggers.

 

Apply here!

Is there a physical location or office? Whom does the role report to? What are example emergencies where reservists would be activated? What would they do when activated? Are there comparable orgs in other domains I should index to when thinking about ALERT? How many hours / week, roughly? What does it mean that the role would not be on duty most days? Is there an existing staff or would one need to be hired? When the National Guard is activated they are called away to a physical space to work with others, is it like that?

Great questions. Most of the below could be reshaped by the director:

  • No physical location - director has discretion. (One cool idea we had was to enlist existing teams at EA orgs, so that they're constantly building readiness and already colocated or functionally remote.)
  • Role reports to the board, currently Jan Kulveit, Vishal Maini, Ales Flidr and me but likely to need more.
  • Some unvetted examples we came up with: COVID in late December 2019; Russia-Ukraine (minor investigation from December 2021, expanding to active nuclear risk forecasting by end January); nuclear explosion of any kind; new large leaks of Snowden type; new physics apparently discovered; someone attempts climate engineering; global stilling; volcano acting weird; etc.
  • See what we did during covid: massive fast data collection, fast great research, visualisation, pro bono consulting, serving on government advisory boards, policy design, making up for inadequate institutions of all kinds, coordination, countering bullshit.  (This was all improvised; next time we'll do better.) 1DaySooner are a big inspiration too.
  • Comparable orgs are Epidemic Forecasting, RAMP, MeSES, ALLFED, the strategic side of FEMA. None have

One cool idea would be embedding a physical EOC [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_operations_center] into refuges, and calling reservists in once some crisis threshold was crossed.
2Kbrown5d
"New large leaks of the Snowden type." I agree that effective altruists should do more to encourage these.
5N N5d
Maybe they should, maybe the shouldn't, but I don't think Gavin was saying such things should be encouraged. I think he was saying that there should be some kind of response if such leaks happen.

More questions from offline:

How are reservists incentivized to prioritize ALERT over their other work when activated?

It's a good question. I doubt that binding contracts are the right way to do this. We will probably do peacetime stipends and emergency pay. But I suppose it's a matter of self-selection: we will be responding to the current most important thing in the world and, in this crowd, that should be enough.

After the director, what is the org most limited by?

Org strategy > org ops (existence, banking, authorisation, etc) > hiring > fundraising > wargame planning. Reservists and forecasters are fairly ready to go.

2Gavin2mo
Also a question about seniority [https://twitter.com/ChrisPainterYup/status/1536504758755786757]: Pardon: asks that it not be your first rodeo, that you can handle founding (especially hiring and culture-setting). But we don't need VP or C-level.

Arb is a new research consultancy led by Misha Yagudin and Gavin Leech.

In our first 6 months we've worked on forecasting, vaccine strategy, AI risk, economics, cause prioritisation, grantmaking, and large-scale data collection. We're also working with Emergent Ventures and Schmidt Futures on their AI talent programme.

Consulting is reactive, but we have lots of ideas of our own which you can help shape.

We're looking for researchers with some background in ML, forecasting, technical writing, blogging, or some other hard thing. We only take work we think is important. Get in touch!

We’re looking for new team members at Charity Entrepreneurship. We’ve recently made a video asking our colleagues about what it’s like to be part of CE, so hopefully, you will check it out and like the vibe and the values we share.

We have now open ongoing applications for the positions of: 

With the Research Analyst role, you will conduct shallow and in-depth research into promising ideas to find the best charity interventions to found.

As a Foundation Program Lead, you will manage and implement our newest program and help the new grantmaking foundations set up and find the best directions to fill the gaps in the philanthropic ecosystem. 

What do we offer?

  • Other than a huge tangible impact on the world? You’ll be learning new skills on the job (so apply even if you don’t check all the boxes) and getting into an informal and supportive work environment.
  • We can promise low bureaucracy, flat hierarchies, and authentic start-up culture.
  • We’re a bunch of dedicated EAs and have a great community of nonprofit entrepreneurs around, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn, grow and connect with talented people.

If you are excited about working with Charity Entrepreneurship but are uncertain whether you are qualified enough for this role, please do apply nonetheless: we care deeply about mindset and value-alignment with our approach and are skilled at finding people with high potential whose growth we are happy to facilitate. Don’t hesitate to make the content of your CV for CE a little unconventional (e.g. mention personal projects, courses, and experiences that are not strictly professional) if that better demonstrates that you can do what we need and are aligned with our values and approach.

Interested and posting so I'll receive notifications of any change to the post :)

Roles

We are expanding our data science team and hiring applied AI practitioners! If you believe you have the skills and passion for contributing to the nascent world of AI governance, we want to hear from you!

To help you figure out if that’s you, I’ll describe some of the near-term challenges we are facing:

  • How can general principles of Responsible AI be operationalized?
  • How can we programmatically assess AI systems for principles like fairness, transparency, etc?
  • How can we make those assessments understandable and actionable for a broad range of stakeholders?

And some characteristics we look for:

  • Have an “owner” mindset. This word gets tossed around a lot, but at a startup our size it truly is a requirement. The ground is fertile and we need people who have the vision and follow through to develop wonderful things.
  • Have an existing passion and knowledge in this space. You don’t have to have previously worked in “AI safety” or “responsible AI”, but this post shouldn’t be the first time you are thinking about these issues!
  • Technical skills and experience in data science, AI development, or similar fields. This is a senior position, so some work experience is needed.

Hiring process and details

Our hiring process starts with you reaching out. We are looking for anyone who read the above section and thinks “that’s me!”. If that’s you, send a message to me at ian@credo.ai. Please include “Effective Altruism Forum” in the subject line so I know where you heard of us. 

Ought is an applied machine learning lab, hiring for:

Our mission is to automate and scale open-ended reasoning. To that end, we’re building Elicit, the AI research assistant. Elicit's architecture is based on supervising reasoning processes, not outcomes. This is better for supporting open-ended reasoning in the short run and better for alignment in the long run.

Over the last year, we built Elicit to support broad reviews of empirical literature. The literature review workflow runs on general-purpose infrastructure for executing compositional language model processes. Going forward, we'll expand to deep literature reviews, then other research workflows, then general-purpose reasoning. (More here)

Hey! I'm very interested in a public AMA with Ought, if you'd open one. (Speaking for myself and at least 2 other EA developers that I can easily remember)

The Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative (BERI) is seeking a Deputy Director to help me grow BERI's university collaborations program and create new programs, all with the mission of improving human civilization’s long-term prospects for survival and flourishing.

This is BERI's first "core" hire since I was hired 3 years ago—all of our hires since then are embedded at some particular research group, and aren't responsible for running BERI as an organization.

This is a great opportunity for an early- to mid-career person with some experience and interest in operations. I expect that the Deputy Director will contribute substantially to BERI's strategy and direction moving forward.

I'd prefer the person to be based in New York City (where I am), but remote is also an option. The position is full-time, and I expect the salary range to be $70-100k/year.

Here's a bunch of links to persuade you to work at BERI:

Ultimately, we're looking for someone who deeply understands Open Philanthropy’s mission, shares our vision for the kind of organization we are working to become, and has the skills and experience to build the recruiting function that can get us there.

Redwood Research is hiring for a number of Technical and Non Technical roles:

Technical

Non-technical


Redwood Research is a research organization with the mission of aligning superhuman AI. In addition to our primary work of applied AI alignment research, Redwood hosts and operates Constellation, a shared office space we created to foster knowledge-sharing and collaboration between longtermist organizations. People from the following organizations often work from the space: Paul Christiano’s Alignment Research Center, MIRI, and Open Philanthropy.

Hey! I suggest adding buzzwords here like "software" and "ML", in case people search for those instead of going through all job postings one by one

 

Also, many software developers are surprised to find out they can apply to Redwood with no ML or [AI Alignment research] background, which I'd recommend putting in big red letters or something, assuming it's still true. (I sometimes talk to people who don't apply to you until they finish spending several months learning ML)

Climate Refarm is hiring for a managing director!

We are a public benefit corporation aiming to accelerate the transition to a just, plant-based  food system using the voluntary carbon market. We’re developing the first carbon crediting methodology for plant-based food procurement, which recognizes and quantifies the avoided emissions associated with dietary shifts. Leveraging this methodology, we seek to partner with plant-based advocacy organizations to subsidize plant-based foods in institutions like schools, hospitals, and universities through the sale of carbon credits.

About the role

We are looking for a fourth co-founder to join our team on a full-time basis as a managing director. The Managing Director will play a critical role in developing our program for food procuring institutions. You’ll lead pilot projects with food procurement institutions from customer discovery through implementation and monitoring. This will involve working alongside partner nonprofit organizations to secure plant-based menu commitments from food procuring institutions, and coordinating with menu design and kitchen operations consultants to carry out project implementation. You’ll also help us set up outreach and sales processes for carbon credit purchasers, who provide the up-front funding needed to make projects happen.  Most importantly, you’ll help us translate what we learn from customer discovery and pilot project implementation into an approach that can scale to thousands of institutions and billions of meals.

As a co-founder, you will have substantial responsibilities and discretion to shape the company’s trajectory. We're looking for someone who is entrepreneurial, highly committed to effective environmentalism and animal advocacy, and eager to put their imprint on an exciting social impact company.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, you can learn more about the position, preferred qualifications, working conditions and the application process here. Please direct any questions to careers@climaterefarm.com.

Apply to join the EAGxIndia 2023, the Future Forum and the EAGxBerkeley 2023 teams. The application takes 15 minutes and the deadline is Tuesday May 31st at 11:59pm Pacific Time. We are also seeking (separate application) volunteers to run EAGxSingapore 2022.  Read more.

These roles are a great fit for someone who:

  • Depending on team structure:
    • Has the capacity to take on 5-10 hours of flexible work per week leading up to the conference
    • Is able to work full- or near-fulltime 2 weeks before the conference
  • Could be good fits for any of the following (specific needs will vary based on the location)

  • Location
    • The EAGxBerkeley and India roles are mostly remote—you don’t have to be based in India or the Bay. You’ll likely be expected to attend 1-2 pre-event retreats and a requirement that all core team members are in-person at least 1 week before the event. All else equal we would prefer to have people in similar timezones for better coordination.
    • The Future Forum would prefer in-person roles, in June and July, based in the Bay Area. They can compensate some of the travel cost.
  • Team structure: Team structures are very flexible and depend on the applicants we get and their strengths.

The RESILIENCER Project (Ramifications of Experimentation into SRM In Light of its Impacts on Existential, Negative-state and Civilisational Endangering Risks) are looking to hire some researchers. Currently the team is exceptionally small (me plus a few others advising and mentoring), but we are looking to expand. 

The project is exploring the interaction of solar radiation modification and existential risk, GCRs, societal collapse and negative state risks, with an aim to be as rigorous and thorough in the exploration of the field as possible. Thus, we need to expand to people with appropraite expertise.

In particular, we are looking for people with expertise in at least one of the following areas:

  • SRM
  • Social sciences data analysis
  • STS, in particular the relationship between research and technology deployment and the role of imaginings in the eventual usage of technology in society
  • Collapseology, GCRs and X-Risk
  • Climate Modelling

As the project goes on, our list of needed areas may expand. Moreover, if you have expertise in other areas you think might be relevant, please do apply as well.

These roles will be remote, short term and part time. Rate will be negotiable as the researcher positions will be tailormade for the candidates (apologies we can't advertise the rates upfront, but what exactly the roles will even entail will only be developed once the right candidate(s) have been found).

The application form is pretty short, and if we think you look promising, we will set up a call to discuss what you can offer!

The forum should be the defacto place for job posting.  Allow anyone to submit, jobs are hidden by default, forum users can sort by karma, would be a better way to see all the jobs in one place and filter them.

I wrote about it here https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/uxfWrFNH7jSSGhkkS/unofficial-pr-faq-posting-more-jobs-to-the-forum-but-they 

Just want to say that I think threads like this are a beautiful addition to the Forum and a real step up from the 80k jobs board.

I'm really surprised to read this, I think the 80k jobs board is awesome!

In what ways do you think this format is an improvement?

Decentralized / less gatekept, postings can be voted on, more ability to customize contact info / next steps. 

(Nothing against the 80k board, which is also a valuable service.)

Is there a way to sort answers by newest? I'm not seeing that option. It would be useful for finding new answers I haven't seen yet.

It's now possible to sort answers by date! \o.o/

Lorenzo didn't mention that he built the dang feature himself. Thanks Lorenzo. Also thanks Ryan for the suggestion.

Fantastic! Thank you!

I don't know if there's an easy way to sort by newest, made a quick and dirty codepen using the forum API https://codepen.io/lorenzo-buonanno/full/xxYjvgW 

[This comment is no longer endorsed by its author]Reply

Very cool, thank you!

I recommend adding all the related buzzwords (for example, both "frontend" and "web", not just one of them),

in future posts,

to make it easier for candidates to search for relevant positions

 

 

I really like this post btw
