Jobs

Working at Building Markets is not like any other job you've had.

We strive to be a cross between a Silicon Valley start-up, a Madison Ave. advertising firm, and the Edison Labs. We're a nonprofit social enterprise that embraces competition. Our mandate is to build markets, create jobs and sustain peace in developing countries. To achieve this we have built a team of people who come from a wide range of backgrounds.

The common denominator is that they are unreasonable people who believe we can always do better. If you think you would fit on this team, if you want to be challenged to do more, do it smarter, and make a difference, then please take a look at the openings.

Location: New York City
Closing Date: August 30, 2017

The Office Manager/Bookkeeper will carry out the daily administrative tasks required to efficiently run our NY Headquarters office. The ideal candidate is at ease with a demanding and dynamic work environment, comfortable with QuickBooks and Excel, and able to manage a wide range of detail. This position will largely support the organization’s NYC team and office, but will also liaise with field offices on an as needed basis related to finance, travel and HR requirements.

Unsolicited Applications

Building Markets accepts unsolicited applications. We are especially interested in candidates with a proven entrepreneurial record and who have shown that they are successful in coming up with new ideas and putting them into practice.

Candidates must be willing to work, if required, in isolated posts in difficult environments, to follow security protocols, and to be willing to learn the language of their duty station to at least basic level.  If this fits your profile, we encourage you to send a CV and covering letter to vacancies@buildingmarkets.org
