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 looking for work in EA!

Please use the format below.
EDIT: If there's anything else you think might be relevant specific cause areas, full-time/part-time, when you're available, your experience with EA, what type of role you're looking for, ... please add that in the 'Notes' section.
EDIT2: Added 'Available from and until' field 

See Yonatan's tips on posting more effectively [EA(p) · GW(p)], and examples of a similar format on the latest similar thread on Hacker News.
This was inspired by the talks around an EA common application [? · GW], especially this comment [EA(p) · GW(p)], and 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.)

Update July 19, 2022 - I've accepted an employment offer and am currently not seeking a new role

Location: Council Bluffs, Iowa

Remote: Yes

Willing to relocate: No

Skills: 

Resume: https://www.ryanbeckauthor.com/assets/resume.pdf

Email: ryooan@gmail.com

Notes:

  • Cause Areas
    • Open to just about anything. I lean a little more toward global health and wellbeing but I think longtermist focuses are important too and would be happy to contribute to either.
  • Availability
    • I'd most likely be available within about two months of receiving an offer.
  • Looking for
    • I'm primarily looking for full time work, and I think I would enjoy doing anything that fits well with my skills, though I am looking mainly for something different from engineering.
    • I think I'd be a good fit for and enjoy roles that involve research, writing, and/or forecasting.
    • I'd also enjoy roles that involve coding or building tools, though I don't have a lot of formal experience with those things so I might not be as good of a fit there.
  • Experience with EA
    • I've been aware of and interested in EA for a few years, though I've only started looking into it more closely in the past few months. I'd describe myself as someone who was a lurker on the periphery of EA and is now trying to get more involved.

If anyone has any feedback or suggestions for me I'd appreciate it as well. Feel free to message me or submit feedback anonymously at this link.

Edited on June 1, 2022 to add the notes section.

Location: New Jersey, USA

Remote: Yes

Willing to relocate: Likely Yes

Skills:

  - Machine Learning (Python, TensorFlow, Sklearn): Familiar with creating custom NNs in Keras,  properly using packaged ML algorithms, and (mostly) knowing what to use and when.

I am in the process of submitting a paper on ensemble learning for splice site prediction to IEEE Access (late submission). 

  - Python, R, HTML, CSS: I am competent  in Python (5 years experience), and am familiar with R, HTML, and CSS. My website: https://rodeoflagellum.github.io

  - Writing: Examples (many incomplete) can be found on my website. One is the essay I wrote on Forecasting Designer Babies, which placed among the top submissions in the Impactful Forecasting Prize (on EAF). I am current writing about people attitudes towards human gene-editing. 

  - Education: BA Math and Neuroscience 

Resume: Available upon request

Email: rodeoflagellum AT gmail DOT com

Further Notes:

   - Cause Areas: (presently) Longtermism / Global Priorities / X-Risk Reduction > AI Alignment > Biosecurity > Global Health and Wellbeing. I am interested in the notion of "civilizational stability and resilience", but am too unfamiliar with work in this area to comment further.

  - Availability: Likely available 1 month post-offer (July). Very likely available 2 months post-offer. 

  - Roles I'm Looking For: Full time remote research work that involves some mix of forecasting, modeling, math/statistics, tool building, and data analysis, but predominantly involves literature review and synthesis. 

  - Experience with EA: Lurker on EAF since early 2018. Helped create a student org. and lead X-risk discussions. Giving What We Can Pledge since 2021.

Willing to relocate: Recently signed a lease agreement. Will have to stay at current location until end of July, 2023.
Skills: Data Analytics, Financial Analysis, Excel, R, Tableau, RapidMiner, Regression Analysis, Time Series Analysis, Economics, Writing, Management, Music Composition

Email: ikuhle@yahoo.com
Notes: My background prior to finance and economics is mostly as an artist. I was a musician and lighting engineer in local theaters and night clubs. I loved my job, but decided to look for something with more stability that was altruistic in character.
My primary interest is in economics and research. I recently applied and was accepted for a volunteer analyst role at SoGive. I am considering pursuing a PhD and doing research tying physics to economics at a fundamental level. 
My dream job is to be on a team creating a new school of economics that promotes long term stability, is integral with natural ecological systems, defeats corruption, and ameliorates poverty (Dream big, right?). A second dream job is to be on a team that creates an online platform for direct democracy and political accountability. 
Send me a message, I'd be happy to hear from you :)

Notes: I am interested in a variety of cause areas, such as: Climate change, AI, global poverty and education, and global peace. I've invested many hours in studying sustainable architecture. 

I am growing more and more familiar with EA every day, and I've completed the 80K career guide as well as an "Intro to EA" cohort. I plan on applying to become a facilitator and taking the intensive course in the next few months. 

Although my career experience is in copywriting, my passion is connecting with and helping people.

Ideally, I'm looking for work in community-related spaces that work toward EA causes. 

That said, I'm also open to content-writing work, but as more of an editor and advisor on content. Not so much the writing.

Notes:
Medic from Australia who has taken an indefinite step back from clinical medicine, with a view to pursuing higher impact opportunities. Rlocated from Australia for now (currently floating around Europe).

Essentially willing and able to donate my skills / time in a remote sense or in a particular location for the right opportunity. I’m in the position where I could take or leave employment, I'm mostly motivated by the right experience / opportunity, whether that is paid or not. Well-placed for any remote work but similarly flexible in relocating for the right opportunity. 

Background in medicine, science and research, so plenty of relevant experience in research in general as well as more niche experience in health care. Studying a masters of bioethics. Various previous mental health advocacy roles. Limited background with writing / editing, having worked as an editor for a website prior and really interested in broadening my writing and journalism skills.

I think I could also be a really good fit for more general roles like operations / community building / stakeholder engagement, although these are untested hunches. I’ve also had previous on the ground roles in low and middle income countries, so I’d be willing and happy to do any sort of more direct roles (ie ops / community liaison etc) for any EA, should this be useful / needed. 

Interest in many cause areas but specifically global health and development / global mental health / climate change / AI ethics (particular the ethics of human interface with and use of AI tools).

If you or anybody you know think I could be a good niche or general fit for your project / organisation and want some help, let me know!
