Job Description/Requirements

About GiveDirectly

GiveDirectly (GD) aims to reshape international giving – and millions of lives – by providing cash grants directly to the poorest people in the world. The Brookings Institution estimates that $100B of cash transfers would be required to eliminate the poverty gap; the aid sector currently spends $135B each year, much of it on evidence-free interventions. GiveDirectly wants to change that, establishing cash transfers as a benchmark for foreign aid – as the index fund is a benchmark for the financial industry – and in the process accelerating the end of extreme poverty.


GD has raised over $800M since launching in 2011, delivered cash to more than 1 million people, and launched offices in 11 countries across North America, Africa, and the Middle East. We’ve also supported 19 large-scale, experimental research projects that indicate strong recipient impact of our programs – including the largest universal basic income experiment in history. We use concrete evidence to inform the design of our programs: from research results published in leading journals, to in-depth qualitative work. As a result, GD has been celebrated as one of the most innovative non-profit companies by Fast Company, while the growing cash transfer movement (and GD’s leading role within it) have been featured in the New York Times Magazine, This American Life, Foreign Affairs, and The Economist.


We’re looking for exceptional talent to grow our collaborative, diverse team. Joining GiveDirectly provides the opportunity to work alongside individuals who come from 21 different countries and speak 69 different languages. We’re actively working toward an equitable and inclusive environment for all team members, and seek candidates who will bring diverse perspectives and experiences to our organization. We recruit from organizations across all industries: our team has hailed from sectors including start-ups, government, consultancies, investment banks, and nonprofits.

Across our global offices, our culture is candid, analytical, non-hierarchical, and fast-paced. We value ability, adaptability, and willingness to learn. We offer competitive salary and benefits, as well as performance-based bonuses.


Location: Global, Remote


About this role

The Growth Associate will play a crucial role in end-to-end execution of relationships with the largest donors. In this hyper-crossfunctional role, you’ll work with major donors, operations teams, and GiveDirectly leadership to maximize the amount we can raise for recipients this year.

Major donors are our fastest-growing vertical, and the Growth Associate will join the rapidly growing high net worth team (5+ by early 2023). You’ll maintain systems & data models, research opportunities and draft briefs, deliver differentiated & memorable content (reports, emails, calls, decks), aid in building pitches for large transformative projects, and help manage relationships with our largest supporters (both by being a direct relationship holder, and supporting our exec team).


Our donors are curious and analytical; strong candidates for the role will be excited to get into the weeds on the latest academic research on cash, stay up to date on the state of the aid sector, and make the case for more recipient empowerment in aid allocation decisions.

You’ll work closely with our Growth, Partnerships, Finance, Program, and executive teams to identify new high-impact projects, scale existing programming, stay up to date on our latest operational developments, and filter back recipient & project updates to donors.


This role is best suited for candidates with an entrepreneurial mindset, a knack for storytelling, attention to detail (I know everyone says this in a posting but we really mean it), and exceptional project management. This role will play a crucial role in building a community of givers excited about evidence, impact, and choice.

This role will report to the Director of Major Gifts, and partner closely with the team to support all aspects of the major donor lifecycle. If successful, this role has the potential to drive a step change difference in the dollars we can commit to thousands of people living in extreme poverty.
