Team Rubicon (TR) is seeking a Deputy Director of Learning & Insights to join our fast paced capabilities development team. This role requires an obsession with how people learn, how insights can catalyze improvements for Team Rubicon and how it can be implemented to better help those who are affected by disaster.

If you think this might be you, keep reading.

The environment we work in is ever changing. We’re experiencing significant growth and expanding our capabilities (services) and the tempo in which we deliver them around the world.

This role will oversee two teams (training content development and insights). The teams this role leads are lean but wield the ability to work across the organization to generate better solutions than it could in its own silo. This means you will excel in a lean environment and know how to leverage influence rather than authority. You will be an incredible listener and a persuasive communicator. You will find people (both volunteers and the employees you will work with) endlessly fascinating and strive to understand their motivations. You will be driven to improve all attributes of our member’s learning experience and translate insights into recommendations to improve Team Rubicon capabilities.

Our culture requires individuals foolish enough to think they can change the world and smart enough to have a chance. Every day is a challenge, but every month brings new opportunities for an organization that is quickly becoming a household name in disaster response. This position reports to TR’s Corey Eide, Capabilities Development and is based out of our Los Angeles, CA, National Headquarters Office and/or Team Rubicon National Operations Center (NOC), Grand Prairie, Texas.
