Seeking Brilliance

As more people wake up to the power and potential of grassroots organizing led by women of color and transgender and gender-expansive people of color, Groundswell finds itself in a moment of growth!

We’re looking for talented, experienced individuals eager to join a collaborative team that’s working to organize resources to back up the brilliant leadership of our grantee partners.

We know it’s important that our staff have deep connections and experience with the diversity of people, organizations, and movements our work supports. As such, we especially seek applications from Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, women, transgender, and gender-expansive people, and LGBQ folks.

Important Application Information

Virtual Organization

Groundswell is a completely virtual organization and has been for many years before the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are committed to building a strong identity and thriving culture that is exemplary in the nonprofit world and in the greater landscape of fully remote organizations.

To succeed as remote workers, applicants should have a dedicated workspace, a commitment to clear and frequent communication, and comfort in utilizing technology to increase collaboration and connection.

Those with previous remote work experience are preferred, but we also welcome those who are new to remote work and understand the requirements of working in a thriving virtual organizational culture.

Work Schedule

Groundswell is currently piloting a 4-day, 32-hour work week with the intention of making it a permanent schedule.

We are a completely virtual organization, allowing for flexibility in work schedules for our staff across differing U.S. time zones. While work can usually be completed during standard business hours of the applicant’s time zone, there may be times when early morning, evening, and weekend work may be needed to ensure organization-wide collaboration, to staff or attend events, and/or to meet organization workload needs during busy times of the year.

Staff whose jobs require travel can expect longer hours, as travel may happen outside of business hours and on weekends.

Groundswell Fund is currently in the midst of a salary benchmarking study. The salary for positions may increase in the future. 

Very generous benefits include fully paid-for employee and family health, dental, vision, matching 401K plan, as well as additional employer-provided reimbursements for fertility expenses, transgender health care costs, and midwifery/doula expenses that are not covered by insurance.
