You will not find a better place to work or a better community to join. We pay competitively and offer benefits for full-time employees, but the greatest benefits are the culture and relationships you will find here. We want the best of the best--people who are talented, generous, kind, and hard working. We want people who love to laugh, who want to make the world more just and inclusive, and who won't quit until the job is done.
We would love to find great candidates from our D/deaf and hard of hearing communities, and we welcome hearing allies, particularly those with some ASL skills and knowledge of the communities we serve.
To apply for any of these positions, please submit a cover letter, resume, and references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will not be considered unless all requested elements are provided. No phone calls please. Review of applicants begins immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.
