Founded by Dr. Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg in 2015, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is a new kind of philanthropy that’s leveraging technology to help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges – from eradicating disease, to improving education, to reforming the criminal justice system. Across three core Initiative focus areas of Science, Education and Justice and Opportunity,  we’re pairing engineering with grantmaking, impact investing, policy work, and movement building, to help build an inclusive, just and healthy future for everyone.

Our Values

We believe we can help build a future for everyone.

  • We aim to be daring, but humble:  We look for bold ideas — regardless of structure and stage — and help them scale by pairing engineers with subject matter experts to build tools that accelerate the pace of social progress.
  • We want to learn fast, but build for the long-term: We want to iterate fast and help bring new solutions to the table, but we also realize that important breakthroughs often take decades, or even centuries.
  • Stay close to the real problems: We engage directly in the communities we serve because no one understands our society’s challenges like those who live them every day.  

Our success is dependent on building teams that include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other's assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we look for a diverse pool of applicants including those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, formerly incarcerated people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender nonconforming, first and second generation immigrants, veterans, and people from different socioeconomic backgrounds.

The Opportunity

Our Education team brings together a diverse set of technologists, grantmakers, strategists and former teachers. Our north star is to enable every young person--not just the lucky few--to enter adulthood with the knowledge, skills, habits and agency to contribute to and thrive in a changing world. 

We believe we can only attain our north star when equity is both an ends (what we intend to achieve) and a means (how we work to achieve it).Therefore, the programs and products we design must themselves be inclusive, equitable and representative of community voice and experience. To do this, we need aligned processes, operations, and staff development. 

The Inclusive Design & Capacity Manager will help us transform the way we work. This senior manager role is primarily internal-facing and will work closely with education leadership in representing and spearheading equity-related efforts across CZI’s 100+ person Education team that will impact all of our external activities. They will co-develop and support the execution of two roadmaps enabling product and program improvements to accelerate student outcomes and ensure race and income are no longer predictors of success and access for students and communities within the education system. This role will drive and support work across our Education team while coordinating unique efforts (e.g. pilots, research, process models) to accelerate organization-wide learning and progress. They will partner with leadership and activate staff to carry out org-wide initiatives and fast-moving projects.

  • Defining, measuring and owning organizational progress toward inclusive and participatory design 
  • Equipping technical and non-technical staff with knowledge and resources to design solutions, tools and portfolios in more inclusive and participatory ways
