Senior Advisor

Permanent employee, Full-time · Remote (US - Pacific or Mountain Time Zones)

About us
At Founders Pledge, our mission is to empower entrepreneurs to do immense good. Since launching in 2015, our members have pledged to donate over $8 billion to charitable causes. We offer the simplest path to impact for successful entrepreneurs, providing end-to-end giving infrastructure, pioneering research, and access to a worldwide network of experts. In other words, we help tech leaders become strategic philanthropists. Our 1600+ members include the people behind industry-leading companies such as Airbnb, UiPath, Dropbox, Skype, Spotify, and Uber.
About the role

We’re now looking for a Senior Advisor to join our Member Experience team. Our Advisors are pivotal in moving as many of our member’s funds as possible to the highest impact funding opportunities (identified by our Research team). You’ll report into our Chief Experience Officer, acting as a true thought-partner to our members, building deep 1-1 connections and understanding their motivations, to help us achieve our goal of funding the highest-impact organisations worldwide. 

In this hugely influential role, you’ll have the opportunity to become a true philanthropic expert, with exposure to members of ultra-high net worth and high-influence. You’ll inspire and influence, not only individual members, but across the business (including our C-Suite), evolving our overall member experience and member strategy.

In your first 6 months you’ll:

  • Start to own relationships with our US member base. This involves building deep, personal and genuine relationships. When our members are ready to give, you’ll inform and educate, working with them to build a portfolio of high-impact giving.

  • Learn more about our cause-neutral approach to giving. As an Advisor at Founders Pledge, you’ll not only influence our members to move millions of dollars to high-impact causes, but in turn, you’ll be a part of changing the global philanthropic landscape. 

  • Begin to contribute to the development of our Advisory service. This might include reviewing and building educational resources, learning sessions, and other tools which encourage our members to give in an impact-maximizing way. You’ll contribute to the development, production and testing of new resources, methods and tools which we can use to improve our service. 

Location: USA - we are open to candidates in Pacific Time Zone or Mountain Time Zone only. This role is mostly remote, but will require travel to San Francisco numerous times per year.

Salary: $95k - $110k 

About you

Firstly, you must be incredibly excited about the opportunity to work in such an impactful role, passionate about moving millions of dollars to the highest impact opportunities and managing relationships with those who have the power to do so.

We’re open to candidates from a variety of professional backgrounds, with experience building trusted, influential relationships with HNW individuals, potentially as an Advisor, Major Gifts Manager, Wealth/Asset Manager, or a similar profession.

You’ll need to be 'cause agonistic' and aligned with our approach to giving. You’ll appreciate that not all charities are the same, be passionate about learning more about our research, and keen to engage and educate our members.

You’ll likely have:

  • Alignment with Founders Pledge’s view of high impact charitable giving. You’ll persuade our members to give to the most impactful causes, even if they aren’t the ones that you personally resonate with. 

  • The gravitas to challenge and convince HNWs to build high-impact giving portfolios. You might have developed this skill in client/stakeholder management and we’re looking for evidence of building trusted relationships that lead to positive outcomes.

  • Experience communicating complex information persuasively (this could be from a range of backgrounds, e.g. sales, communications, fundraising, education). You’ll need to digest our quantitative research and tell compelling stories to our members. 

  • Motivation to achieve (and ideally surpass) targets. The team aims to move more money each year to the very best charitable opportunities.

  • Experience in philanthropic advising or the nonprofit sector (nice to have).

Why work with us?
You can find more about the benefits we offer here, but what makes us truly special is both our mission and our people. We’re a diverse team, from both charitable and commercial backgrounds, who believe that amazing things can happen when we tackle problems together. We offer a flat structure and an opportunity to help shape the future of philanthropy.

We have a global flexible first approach to working, which means that although for this role you’ll need to be based in the Pacific Time Zone or Mountain Time Zone. You’ll need a reliable home wifi connection, but we’ll provide you with everything else you need to be successful in your role. You’ll have the option to use a desk in a co-working space close to your home, as often as you like. On top of this, we’ll bring the global team together ​once per year (when it’s safe to do so)!

We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at Founders Pledge. We seek people with different strengths, experiences and backgrounds, who share our drive to understand and solve complex social challenges. 

We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. Finding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems requires different perspectives and unique ways of thinking and we are committed to building an inclusive and diverse workplace where everyone can do their best work.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
