Job boards & other resources

If you want to explore EA jobs, check out the related Who’s hiring? thread, or the resources below:

  1. The 80,000 Hours Job Board compiles a huge amount of open roles; there are over 800 jobs listed right now. 
    1. You can filter to exclude "career development" roles, set up alerts for roles matching your preferred criteria, and browse roles by organisation or "collection."
  2. The "Job listing (open)" page is a place to explore positions people have shared or discussed on the EA Forum (see also opportunities to take action). 
  3. The EA Opportunity Board collects internships, volunteer opportunities, conferences, and more — including part-time and entry-level job opportunities.

Other resources include Probably Good's list of impact-focused job boards, the EA job postings and EA volunteering Facebook groups, and these lists of project ideas you might be able to work on independently. (If you have other suggestions for what I should include here, please comment on this post or send me a DM!)

    I phrase it this way to include explicitly EA organisations, as well as organisations which do not call themselves EA, but work on causes with significant support within EA such as farmed animal welfare or AI risk.

    TLDR: I'm looking for entry-level communications jobs or writing-heavy roles. My experience is mostly in writing (of different kinds) and tutoring students.

    Skills & background: I write a lot and have some undergraduate research experience and familiarity with legal work. I finished my BA in history in May 2023 (see [my thesis]). I spent two summers as a legal intern at [Place], and have been tutoring for a year now. I also speak Spanish. I helped run my university EA group in 2022-2023. You can see some of my public writing for [our student newspaper] and [on my blog]. 

    Location/remote: I live in Austin, Texas, and am willing to relocate or work remotely.

    Availability & type of work: I can start at any point, and am interested in part-time or full-time paid roles. 

    Resume/CV/LinkedIn: [Link]

    Email/contact: DM me on the Forum. 

    Other notes: I don't have specific cause area preferences (arguments for all the causes often discussed here are compelling to me), although I've been drawn to animal welfare for a while so that's probably more intrinsically motivating to me. 

    Questions: If anyone has suggestions for opportunities I should pursue for career growth (instead of direct impact), I'd be interested in suggestions!

TLDR. Feel free to check my posts, and see if we can collaborate to contribute to a better world.

Skills & background. I like research related to AI risk skepticism, biorisk skepticism, cause prioritisation, cluelessness, cost-effectiveness analyses, criticism of effective altruist causes, criticism of longtermism and existential risk studies, criticism of work in effective altruism, crucial considerations, distribution of cost-effectiveness, estimation of existential risk, Fermi estimates, forecasting and estimation, impact assessment, indirect long-term effects, the meat-eater problem, nuclear risk skepticism, red teaming, and transparency[1]. See my posts for context.

Location/remote. I live in Lisbon, Portugal, and am willing to relocate or work remotely.

Availability & type of work. I can start in 1 month, and am interested in part-time volunteering, and part-time or full-time paid roles. 

Resume/CV/LinkedIn. You are welcome to check my Europass profile (as it stood on 31 January 2024).

Email/contact. Feel free to send me a direct message on the Forum, or message me via LinkedIn.

Other notes. I typically ask for a salary of 20 $/h, which is roughly equal to 2 times the global real GDP per capita. However, I also have to think the work is more cost-effective than writing EA Forum posts, which I guess is where I am spending my time at the margin.

Questions:

  • Do you have any thoughts on the value (or lack thereof) of my posts?
  • Do you have any ideas for posts you think I would like to write?
  • Are there any opportunities you think would be a good fit for me which are either not listed on 80,000 Hours' job board, or are listed there, but you guess I might be underrating them?

    I have listed these topics alphabetically.

Hi Vasco! Since you asked- yes I really appreciate your posts. I think link-posting is underused, and you provide a really great example of it. Your original work, like this one, is great as well. Keep posting!

Thanks for the feedback, Toby! PS: I personally think this short comment I am writing now should not be upvoted nor downvoted.

Are you interested in within-climate cruxes?

2
Vasco Grilo
25d
Thanks for asking, Johannes! I would be curious to know more about the cruxes you have in mind, but I guess I would not have much interest. I suppose your cruxes within climate are about prioritising across interventios with the intention of decreasing emissions, whereas I mainly wonder about whether decreasing CO2eq emissions is good/bad at the margin. My best guess is that it is good, but it is not that resilient. I have argued that more global warming might be good, but I no longer endorse the premises of my analysis. It relied on minimising the existential risk from climate change and the food shocks caused by abrupt sunlight reduction scenarios (e.g. nuclear winter), but I would now say these pose astronomically low extinction risk. As a result, I think it makes more sense to analyse my question about emissions in terms of figuring out the optimum emissions trajectory to improve nearterm welfare or boost nearterm economic growth, as proxied by e.g. global disease burden until and real GDP in 2050. However, I assume I would not add much value here. Those types of questions are much less neglected than the ones I was trying to answer in my original post, and my sense is that there is already scepticism about current climate policies being optimal from these perspective. For example: * David D. Friedman argues against a much higher social cost of CO2eq. * The Copenhagen Consensus Centre (CCC) estimated interventions to mitigate climate change are not that effective to boost economic growth. The prints below have the benefit-to-cost ratios for trade, health and climate change interventions[1]. 1. ^ I do not know whether the differences across areas would be smaller if one compared just top interventions, but a priori I would expect the CCC to provide similarly representative intervention across the various areas they considered.

That's why I specified "inside-climate", yes those considerations you mention are out of scope for stuff I can fund. This is an aside, but I would not trust CCC on climate.

Vasco Grilo
25d
I see; sorry for the misunderstanding. I was thinking that figuring out whether marginal emissions are good/bad would still be "within climate", whereas comparing climate interventions with ones in other areas would be "outside climate". I would be curious to know why. I know there are concerns around the founder, but would be keen to know about specific criticism of CCC's cost-benefit analyses of climate interventions.

TLDR: Graduating Stanford economics Ph.D. primarily interested in research or grantmaking work to improve the long-term future or animal welfare.

Skills & background: My job-market details, primarily aimed at economics academia, are on my website. I am an applied microeconomist (meaning empirical work and applied theory), with my research largely falling in political economy (econ + poli sci), public economics (econ of policy impacts), and behavioral/experimental economics.

I have been involved in effective altruism for 10+ years, including having been a Senior Programme Associate at Longview Philanthropy in 2022, Vice Board Chair at Animal Charity Evaluators (board member 2020-present), Global Priorities Fellow with the Global Priorities Institute and the Forethought Foundation (2019-2020), and a Senior Research Analyst at Innovations for Poverty Action and the Northwestern Global Poverty Research Lab (RA 2014-2018).

Some examples of my work:

Persistence in Policy: Evidence from Close Votes

  • This is my economics "job market paper."

I will probably decide as to my next step within a month or two.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: LinkedIn; CV

Email/contact: zdgroff@gmail.com

Other notes: The problem area I am most interested in working on is what can be done to improve the long-term future, if anything, beyond extinction risk. My ideal job would probably involve a mix of research and making things happen.

TLDR: Generalist with a focus on research and with a background in data science, looking for full-time or part-time work

Skills & background

  • My recent work has centered around research. I’m currently the M&E Lead at Impactful Animal Advocacy. I completed Charity Entrepreneurship’s Research Training Program, where I conducted prioritization and intervention research (focusing on theories of change, evidence reviews, and cost-effectiveness analyses) as well as charity evaluations. I also did a research internship at Healthy Futures (a CE-incubated charity) last summer and completed the MITx course Evaluating Social Programs. You can find some of my research here on the Forum
  • Before that, I spent 2.5 years as a data scientist in two tech start-ups. I also did some pro-bono data analysis work for a few EA charities on the side.
  • I have some operations experience from my work at Healthy Futures and Impactful Animal Advocacy as well as from serving as one of the organizers of EA Austria for the past five years.

Location/remote: I live in Austria (UTC+1) and would prefer to work remotely (I’m willing to travel!). I’m open to relocating within Europe for the right role.

Availability & type of work: I’m primarily interested in full-time roles, but open to part-time and project-based work. I’ll be available from March onwards. I’m most excited about (generalist) research, M&E, and data analyst roles, but also interested in operations and program management. Open to roles that don’t fall into any of these categories if you think I may be a good fit! 

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: See here.

Email/contact: Happy to send you my email or Calendy; just DM me on the Forum.

Other notes: I’m primarily looking for work in global health/development and animal advocacy, although I’m also excited about roles in mental health, climate change, pandemic preparedness, and meta EA.

TLDR: Software dev/researcher/datascientist/copywriter looking for EA thoughtwork: research, research communication, grantmaking, data science or similar.

Skills & background: Generalist: ~5 years as a software developer, researcher on an LTFF grant (still working on the project), author of various forum posts on EA thought and practices, worked various editing/copywriting jobs, and I've recently been studying data science with a default plan to move in that direction. I've also done a lot of community work: I've been a trustee of CEEALAR, founded the EA Gather Town and co-founded a proto-EA forum called Felicifia. I've written various posts on most of the above subjects.

Location/remote: Somewhat flexible: I'm resident in the Netherlands, UK citizen, with Singaporean partner, so I'm open to relocating to any of those areas and possibly others (remote is also fine).

Availability & type of work: I prefer full time, but open to part time. 

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/sasha-peter-cooper/


Email/contact: Forum DM is the best contact method.

Other notes:  Interested in doing research or work supporting either global health and development or longtermism, or especially at the intersection of the two, especially around general GCR prevention, data-driven longtermism, space governance and advocacy, improving institutional decision making, global prioritisation, EA meta and similar.
 

Someone -6 karma-ed this, which is pretty hurtful - I'd appreciate it if they could DM me to say why.

TLDR: Former diplomat, keen on policy, operational and executive support roles for impactful people/orgs. Especially keen on AI governance. I love to write, too.

Skills & background: I spent four years as an Australian diplomat, and served in the Middle East. I also worked on economic issues in North Asia, and political issues in the Pacific. Prior to that, I was a senior analyst for a major bank, where I gained decent SQL, Tableau, Excel and PowerBI skills. I have a Bachelor of Languages (I speak Indonesian and Persian fluently). I recently completed BlueDot Impact’s AI Safety (Governance) course, and I just started volunteering with the Shrimp Welfare Project as a researcher.

Location/remote: I live in the East Midlands in the UK. I’d prefer to work remotely, but willing to relocate (within the UK) for the right role and salary.

Availability & type of work: I’m looking for full-time paid roles, but would also consider part-time. I can start immediately.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: [Luke Dawes] EA CV

Email/contact: DM me on the Forum, or find my email on my CV.

Availability & type of work: I’m interested in full-time roles but flexible regarding part-time or project-based collaborations.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: my LinkedInmy CV

Email/contact: a.v.gaydashenko[at]gmail.com 

Other notes: Based on the Weighted Factor Model I did for my next career step, I found that I should also consider being a Personal Assistant / Executive Assistant to somebody impactful, so I’d be happy to consider this option as well if we match in AI Safety / AI Policy cause area.

Questions: 1. I'm curious about challenges organizations face in operationalizing AI governance and would appreciate insights or experiences on integrating responsible AI practices effectively. 2. I'm developing a personal theory of change about rising industry standards through leveraging the emerging AI regulations like the AI Act. Although it's not finalized, I’d be happy to discuss it over a quick call.

Yep, thanks for sharing! I don't meet the Qualification Criteria, unfortunately: one needs to be based in the US.

Tl;dr: epidemic and statistical modelling PhD looking for roles in biosecurity, global health, and quantitative generalist roles.

Skills & background: I am about to submit a biostatistics PhD (University of Cambridge, UK), focusing on statistical methods to estimate the incidence of COVID-19 in England and survival analysis. I have experience providing scientific advice to the UK government on the pandemic. Broad Bayesian statistical skillset, as well as skills in engaging critically with literature. View my past posts for less academic samples of my work; I'd especially recommend forecasting accidental pandemics and my high-level takes on biosecurity. Technical work and more details on my personal webpage. Within EA, I am a founding member and now co-leader of the Cambridge Biosecurity working group. I wrote one of the most highly rated pieces in the BlueDot pandemics course. In 2023, I was a top 30 Metaculus forecaster (by peer score).

Location/remote: currently based in Cambridge, UK. Open to remote work and any roles based in UK (no visa required).

Availability & type of work: earliest April, ideally May

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/joshua-blake-22048b14a/

Email/contact: DM me here

Other notes: I'm interested in a large variety of roles. Anything high-impact and quantitative or infectious disease-related I am likely to be interested in. Examples: researcher at a biosecurity organisation; forecasting-esque roles at any organisation; grantmaking. I'm also interested in hearing from people on specific projects relevant to my interests, even if a permanent role is not available at this time.

Questions: where are we bottlenecked in the biosecurity space? What are the most effective interventions currently?

TLDR: AI and moral psychology researcher looking for full-time or contract-based work.

Skills & background: I'm currently running studies on moral judgments of AI at the Uehiro Centre. I'm interested in perceptions of AI and related judgments, such as those of risk (e.g., how different are perceptions of risk from AI to risks from nuclear weapons?), the potential harms from AI misuse (and the variety of misuses that will emerge) and how our moral circle will expand towards digital beings. I have a background in experimental psychology and 3+ years of experience in statistics and experiment design. I also work as an editor, mainly editing research articles and manuscripts for publication.

Location/remote: Oxford, UK (with right to work). Willing to work remotely.

Availability & type of work: I'm looking for part-time, full-time and contract-based work.

Email/contact: alikhanmaryam6@gmail.com

Other notes:  I'm primarily interested in research and executive assistant roles that require strong use of my research skills and my writing/editing abilities. I have a preference for roles within the AI Safety/Governance and policy space or animal welfare, but I would be interested in generalist or social science research roles for other cause areas. I would also be open to hearing from people working on similar projects to me (see CV) - if you're unsure whether I would be interested in a role, please feel free to reach out!  

TLDR: High school senior looking for gap year work, volunteering, projects or mentorship.

Skills & background: I've been aware of EA since 2022. In the last six months, I've gotten more involved (ex: went to EAG). My background is in ops/entrepreneurshp (organized hackathons for HS students for 1.5yrs, advertised & fundraised) and software engineering (5yrs of experience with web dev and systems, two internships). I'm also a top Quizbowl (5 yrs, 4th ranked in SoCal) player in my area, meaning that I have experience in learning large amounts of information (history).

By August, I will most likely have upskilled in AI Governance (ie: take BlueDot's course). I'm happy to learn something else useful between now and then.

Location/remote: San Diego, California; I'm willing to relocate.

Availability & type of work: Part time or full time. I can start working part time now, but most likely not full-time until August [1][2]. I'm open to anything suitable -- paid work, a mentored research project, volunteering, etc.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/bolunthompson

Email/contact: Contact me via direct message or at abolunthompson[at]gmail[dot]com

Other notes: If you don't know if I'd be interested, contact me anyways! I'm looking to explore and build general aptitudes (especially research and information security).


  1. For UC schools, I can't defer my admission. I give a ~35% chance I'll decide to go to a UC, necessitating me to spend a single quarter/semester before dropping out, meaning I couldn't start full-time until 2025. This uncertainty has a 90% chance of being resolved by the end of March (when decisions come out). ↩︎

  2. 75% chance I'm participating in a scholarship exchange program to China this summer such that I could only spend ~2 hours a week on a project (effectively a pause) from mid June to early August. ↩︎

I met Bolun at EAG and can attest that he's a deeply reflective yet action oriented person. I was impressed at his stories of collaborating with his peers to put together two hackathons. I would recommend employers, mentors, or project leaders to connect with him. 

TLDR: current undergraduate student looking for work experience in EA (-related) jobs; operations, communications, research

TLDR: Strategy/Data Analyst with computer science degree looking for data-driven strategy or analysis role. 


Skills & background: The majority of my experience is in business strategy and data analysis. I graduated with a B.S. in computer science and worked with Capital One for just under 3 years where my projects focused around making data-driven business strategy decisions using SQL, Python, and Pandas.  My main skills are in data analysis and presentation, and project management.  I became interested in EA during college and am finally taking the leap the align my personal philosophy with my career, so while I don't have a ton of direct EA experience yet, I am excited to change that!

Location/remote: I am based in Washington, D.C. but I am open to relocating globally or working remotely for the right opportunity.  

Availability & type of work: I am open to part time or temporary work, but full-time is ideal. 

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: LinkedIn

Hi Thomas! Have you looked at the charities that were incubated by Charity Entrepreneurship (CE)? They have quite some overlap with the things you care about and especially the policy ones might benefit hugely from someone with your expertise! Some are hiring and others are working with volunteers/interns, so this might be a good place to start.

TLDR: Diverse EA contractor looking for a part-time operations or comms role, remote.

Skills & background: I currently run a local EA group with a grant from OpenPhil as the only paid member. This role includes tasks like organising coworking space and checking our compliance with local charity regulations as well as running events and getting feedback from our members. 

In the past, I've done short-term projects or contractor work for EA organisations. One project I'm particularly proud of was the Tools For Collaborative Truth-Seeking sequence, on which we got feedback that a number of the tools were now being used as part of the regular workflow in some big EA organisations.

Finally, I also work currently as a moderator for the forum, which involves communicating carefully around sensitive topics on a regular basis.

Location/remote: I'm based in Edinburgh, Scotland, and a remote role would be ideal.

Availability & type of work: I'm in the GMT timezone, but am happy to work outside of these hours (though regularly working in e.g. PDT would be a challenge). My ideal role would be around 20h/week, but I'm open to roles with more or fewer hours available.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: LinkedIn

Email/contact: DM me on the forum.

Other notes: I'm open to any operations or comms/outreach role, but have a preference for AI safety or pandemic prevention organisations.

TLDR: Full Stack Javascript Software engineer looking for full-time or part-time opportunities in AI Safety or AI Safety-adjacent projects

Skills & background: I started my self-taught path in web development in 2018. I finished my Engineering Informatics degree in 2020. I've been doing front-end and back-end stuff full-time for different organizations since 2020.
I also speak native Spanish. I'm currently going through the Leveling Up In AI Safety Research engineering guide, finished the Scientific Computing with Python certificate.

Location/remote: I'm based in Venezuela, I can work remotely in either PST/MST/EST time zones.

Availability & type of work: I can start working with 2-4 weeks' notice, and am interested in positions with a 20- 40-hour weekly load.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dewstend/

Email/contact: You can DM me on the Forum, or connect with me on LinkedIn.

Other notes: I don't have strict cause area preferences at the moment, although I would like opportunities to learn more about Machine Learning. Besides being interested in different AI Safety agendas, I am also drawn to Global Health and Development, Climate Change, and Global Priorities Research.

A role I could be a great fit for right now: you have features, bugs, projects, and/or ideas that need the help of a frontend or a backend software engineer to help you build and add value to your org. React, Vue, Node.js, Nest.js, Next.js, Python, Django REST Framework, throw it at me and I'll make it work.

A role I'd see as ideal but understand if it's not available: Contains a track for upskilling me as a Machine Learning Engineer and helping you with the software engineering aspects of your data and model flows and pipelines.

TLDR: freelance writer and editor interested in (mostly) part-time and contract work. I’m particularly interested in finding more clients for writing coaching (see below). 

Skills & background: I’m a freelance writer and editor: here’s my website and here’s my personal blog. You can also read many of my posts (both personal and collaborative) here on the Forum.

I’ve worked with several EAs and EA-adjacent people, writing or editing blogs, website content, internal organizational documents, podcast transcripts, fiction and more. I’ve also designed an educational module on IFS therapy concepts and worked as a facilitator for the EA Forum. 

Previously, I’ve worked as an ESL and secondary school teacher, and I spent some time pursuing an academic career in Classics (specialising in Greek and Roman philosophy), which also involved working as an instructor and teaching assistant. I think I’m good at teaching and related skills, such as explaining things simply, empathetically listening and responding to people’s problems, thinking of creative solutions, and making plans. I’m actively interested in finding more teaching-adjacent work.

Location/remote: London – most of my work is remote but I’m willing to meet face-to-face in London. I’m not interested in relocating. My working hours are roughly 9.30ish-5.30ish UK time, but I'm happy to work a little later than that sometimes to accommodate people in Pacific Time!

Availability & type of work: I’m mainly interested in contract or part-time work, but would also consider full-time roles if they are an especially good fit. 

I’m interested in offering: 

Writing coaching: I’ve only had a few one-off clients so far for this but I think it went well. Generally, I think I might be a great fit for this because it’s at the intersection of my two skillsets, writing and teaching.

Editing, proofreading, and review: I’m happy to proofread things, offer light or intensive editing, and give feedback on your drafts. In general, I’ll engage with the content of what I’m editing and tell you if something doesn’t make sense or doesn’t land right.

Content writing help: you describe your ideas, and I’ll write them up into a finished draft. 

Debugging, problem-solving, sympathetic listening, and accountability.

I’m starting a series on ideas that have changed people’s lives: the first post is on the Alexander technique. If you’re interested in funding one of these posts, let me know (this will help me to prioritize the project more). 

Here’s a list of questions that I’d be interested to research.


I’m open to work that doesn’t come under any of these headings but that I might be a good fit for: feel free to reach out and ask.

TLDR: I specialize in the intersection of data analysis and organizational strategy and use my passion and skills for numerical work along with my 10+ years of experience in the private sector to translate statistical insights into real-world impact.

Skills & background: I am posting anonymously as I already have EA employment but will disclose all details to interested hiring managers.

My strengths as reported by others are:
-Briar score of 0.131 compared to the crowd median of 0.246
-Proactiveness/self-direction: I need minimal supervision
-Persistency: I will see to it that the job is completed
-Good with people: I enjoy interacting with people and am patient in trying situations
-Attention to detail: My output is of high quality

My experience consists of 10+ years in various roles in the private sector, including supporting CEOs in strategy. Recently, I have had a couple of "EA jobs" where I am still employed. Much more detail can be provided.

Location/remote: Remote and my current location in the EU.

Availability & type of work: The following are the types of work I would like to do:
-Data analysis, forecasting, etc.

-Holding training courses, workshops, etc.

I am keen for the 2 types of work above to be >60% of my work. The reason for looking for a new job is to do more of the work that I truly enjoy - I love data analysis in support of strategy!
 

AI evals might be an especially good fit for me as suggested to me by seasoned EA advisors.


Available part-time right away and full-time once a successor for my current EA job has been found.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: Will be provided privately - just ask!

Email/contact: Please DM me here and I will provide more details.

Other notes: I am cause neutral, especially as this type of work is so enjoyable to me that I do not need other motivation.

Other notes: Cause area interests include global health, animal welfare, government policy, etc. Prefer publicly visible work. Not interested in oncall during sleeping hours

TLDR: Full-stack software engineer (previously at Google and AMF) looking for part-time opportunities.

Skills & background: Expertise in software engineering for backend and frontend development, using a wide range of tech stacks. At AMF, I also worked on many data science tasks: automatic importing and cleaning of data, analyzing geospatial data, database design and optimizations.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: https://blog.purpureus.net/cv/

Email/contact: Jonas Wagner ltlygwayh@gmail.com

Other notes: I'm particularly interested in work that has a clear and simple theory of change. While I am most experienced in global health and development, I am open to any cause area. I value meaningful work over high pay.

TLDR: Experienced math tutor seeks mentees for HS-level projects

Skills & background:  I have been tutoring math for over 20 years and have a math degree. 

Location: Remote.

Availability & type of work: Part-time, any-time, CET hours or asynchronously.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: translated local profile with referencesLinkedIn.

Email/contact: DM or via LinkedIn.

Other notes: The mentorship can be 1-1 or in a group on Skool, synchronous or asynchronous, long-term or short-term. The students can come up with a topic, or I can guide them to figure out a topic. The projects can be in pure math or potentially interdisciplinary. Mentees do not have to attend high school. If we get stuck, I can get guidance from my relative, a STEM researcher. Think of it as an Extended Essay for non-IB students. Pay would be partially flexible (Pay What You Want basis) with a suggested price. 

Questions: I believe this is relevant for EA as math is the cornerstone of sciences, projects can connect more fields, and self-directedness allows students to explore their interests. 

Skills & background: Recent graduate, some internship experience in research related roles. Current legislative intern at the Animal Welfare Institute.

Location/remote: Currently located in San Diego, California. Willing to relocate.

Availability & type of work: Part time, or full time starting in May.

Contact: DM me here or on my LinkedIn.

Other notes: Interested interested in policy roles, animal welfare roles, GHD, movement building, longtermism and more.

TLDR:  I am an educator and coach interested in FT employment that complements my freelance coaching practice.

Skills & background: I am a people person, a strong communicator, and reliable collaborator. My education and professional background is working with languages, teaching English in half a dozen countries and learning a little of each along the way. I love being even a small part of people's growth journey, though I don't love the spotlight. That's what got me into coaching, starting at a US non-profit coaching company. My coming-to-EA story is found here. Lately I've been serving as EA Virtual Programs facilitator, with largely positive feedback so far. In addition to English as my mother tongue, I speak Spanish fluently, and Turkish at a novice level.

Location/remote: Sooke, BC, Canada, Pacific Time Zone. Interested in remote work, but may consider moving for an exceptional opportunity. Open to travel as needed.

Availability & type of work: Available mid-March for full-time work. I have a couple 1-2 week breaks scheduled in for this year.

Resume/CV/LinkedIn: Here's my LinkedIn. Here my coaching website. Here's my Resume (password: howdy) (yes, I'm originally from Texas; no, sorry, I don't have a charming Texas accent)

Email/contact: The best way to find is to DM me via LinkedIn. If you want to cut to the chase, you can book me via this Calendly link.

Other notes: I am mostly cause-neutral but am most fired up by old-skool EA, i.e., GHD, and have pretty solid, recent community building cred. I thrive in ops-type work, especially when my creative side is activated. I like to think that I'm high-integrity, so if you aren't sure if I'd be a good candidate, consider reaching out anyway. I would probably agree, and do my best to help you find someone else!

Questions: I'm helping organize EAGxToronto this year. Want to come?

Elliot has a phenomenally magnetic personality and is consistently positive and uplifting. He's generally a great person to be around. His emotional stamina gives him the ability to uplift the people around him and I think he is a big asset to this community.

Other notes: I don't have strong preference for cause areas and would be highly attracted to roles reducing AI existential risk, or improving animal welfare and global health, or our understanding of the long-term future. I suspect my comparative advantage is in research roles (broadly defined) and in data science work; technical summaries for AI governance or Evals work might be a comparative advantage.

I can attest that Ben is an awesome community builder and communicator about EA!

TLDR: To reduce global wealth inequalities through education, I'm pursuing a mid-senior-level communications position at a non-profit working towards this goal, where I can capitalize on my director-level communications and marketing experience in for-profit organizations.

Skills & background: I'm an economist who works in marketing. My marketing and communications strategies have attracted thousands of customers, helped raise millions in capital, and shaped the competitive edge for approximately fifty US-based companies with a yearly revenue range of $ 1M- $300M. You can find some of my non-profit-centric skills on this deck.

Location/remote: Mexico City. I'm looking for a remote position outside of the US. 

Availability & type of work: Available right now. I'm interested in full-time, part-time, and contract work.

Other notes (context to my TLDR): In my 6th semester of Economics, I studied with graduate students in leadership positions at regional banks, multinationals, and non-profits. None had the time or income to help as many people as they wanted, maintain a work-life balance, and pursue meaningful side projects. 

The idea of that being the best future even the 1% in Colombia could aspire for haunted me. 

Would I forever eat protein-less breakfasts, not afford healthcare, or work on Saturdays? My grandpa went to the Korean War in 1951 to escape the poverty he and his eight siblings were born into. My dad had to sell books, empanadas, and newspapers to pay for public university. Wasn't the financial burden of a private university supposed to be offset by the promise of a better future?

What about others? What about those who didn't have a mother who nurtured their love of reading or a father who instilled the value of self-education? Or those who grew up with abusive or absent parents who didn't trust and invest in their potential, even when they failed or when they had "better" siblings? Or those whom the gene pool and social environment didn't bless with the same non-cognitive and cognitive skills I have?

I'm devoted to helping individuals in the Global South realize their full potential, even if they weren't born into wealthy, stable, and supportive families.

I've experienced the benefits of above-average literacy and education. My skills have brought millions of eyes to overlooked problems and generated millions in profit for purpose-driven brands. At 23, against all odds, I became part of the richest 1% in the world. This allowed me to enroll in a graduate program in Liberal Arts in the United States, afford healthcare, and ensure that my mother had everything she needed to pass away in the least painful way possible.

While my focus lies on reducing global inequalities through educational interventions, I'm also interested in adjacent problems, such as Global Health, Hunger, and AI alignment (can't reduce inequalities if we all cease to exist).


Questions: I can't ask questions before knowing who I'll ask them to.

TLDR: Recent B.S. Computer Science Graduate. Seeking opportunities. Looking for roles to widen my skillset (for example through a role in operations). Open to roles that build upon my current skill set or that expand my skills in operations or technical writing. Interested in reducing xrisk through technical or policy work on AI or biorisk.

Skills & background: General Math and Programming skills. Participated in John Wentworth's SERIMATS online stream for technical AI alignment in 2023. I know how to use python, pandas, matplotlib and pytorch. I coorganized the local EA group in Karlsruhe from 2022 to 2023. I am fluent in German and English.

Location/remote: Currently based in Germany. Open to both remote work and potential relocation depending on the role.

Availability & type of work: Available to start immediately, looking for full-time positions but open to part-time roles or project-based work as well.

Email/contact: For email, see resume (Feel free to DM me on the Forum as well.)

I have experience with JavaScript, Java, LaTeX, HTML, & CSS (especially JavaScript), and I’ve volunteered for a number of political campaigns.

Location/remote: I'm currently located in Bristow, Virginia, which is already pretty close to Washington DC, but I'd be willing to relocate closer to Washington if necessary. I'm open to remote work, but I'd prefer an in-person position.

Availability & type of work: I can start immediately, and I'm interested in either part-time or full-time roles (even unpaid ones, so long as they’re with a congressional staff).
