Giving Compass

Vice President, Philanthropy & Impact

Are you an innovative leader in the social sector who understands the nuances and challenges of measuring impact? Are you a creative thinker, willing to experiment and take risks to help the field? Are you passionate about getting the most value from individual giving for issues, causes, and the world?

Come join us!

Giving Compass is harnessing the best of technology to the knowledge of philanthropy to help donors deepen their ability to give with impact.
Americans give over $280B each year to support a wide range of causes. But are we getting the full value for society from those contributions? And how do we help the many donors who have capacity to give much more get “unstuck?” Our sector has yet to leverage the full potential of technology to make it easier for donors to access the information, tools, and support to inform their decisions about how and where to give.
That’s where we come in! We are laser-focused on investing in products and content that guide donors to informed, intentional investments toward meaningful change on issues and in communities. You will join a dynamic startup environment where your strategies, leadership, and work will contribute directly to the realization of the Giving Compass vision.
Join us on this quest!

VP, Philanthropy & Impact

We are looking for an experienced social impact curator who is comfortable identifying trends, crafting thought leadership, and representing Giving Compass with partners and others in the philanthropy space. As our ideal new VP, you will be disciplined in your approach to defining impact, but also aware of the historical context that has excluded significant contributions from much of the sector due to bias. You should be knowledgeable of and familiar with other online efforts to help donors and how they approach measuring impact. You are thoughtful and careful about unintended consequences, but also unwilling to let the perfect be the enemy of the better. You are an outstanding project manager who can design processes that engage and leverage key stakeholders to arrive at high quality outcomes.

This position has a unique, important role in being the filter and voice on the team for what is best-in-class content and aligns with the principles of Impact-Driven Philanthropy. You will own and drive numerous initiatives to develop new datasets, products, and tools.
