FOUNDERS PLEDGE

Founders Pledge is a global community of founders and investors who have collectively pledged more than $392,000,000 of their personal proceeds from exit (business sale) to high-impact charities.

As a registered charity in the UK, the US and Germany, Founders Pledge’s mission is to make it the norm for technology entrepreneurs to both give more and give more effectively. We do this by asking founders to legally commit to giving as part of a wider movement, and providing the research and expertise founders need to make informed decisions.

Our in-house research team advises members on their donations, helping them make decisions that are rigorously backed by evidence. Joining the team, you will have a unique opportunity to conduct intellectually challenging research that has concrete impact. You will be based in our London HQ.

 

ROLE SUMMARY

 

The team works on two main types of products:

 

In general, a research project will include the following type of work:

 

The team has a collaborative style of work: you will be responsible for leading and executing your own research projects, but will also be expected to provide input to others’ projects. We also place a lot of value on learning and improving: you will be encouraged to share and record lessons learnt, to help the team improve its procedures and methodology. You will report to the Research Director.

I'm not in the job market right now but am generally curious: to what degree might Founders Pledge venture into some of the weirder EA cause areas, like far future or animal causes (even things like wild animals)?
