Head of Operations

The AI & Democracy Foundation (AIDF) is working toward a world where democratic capacity can keep pace with AI advances. We accelerate innovation, evaluation, and adoption of deliberative, democratic, human-centered, governance and alignment systems, for and with AI. We are both a non-profit (501c3) funder, and an advisor to philanthropic organizations, AI organizations, civil society, and governments on the design, funding, and adoption of democratic processes. You can see a partial articulation of our vision in this essay.

We are currently in a ramp-up period and are looking for a full-time Head of Operations to own and rapidly execute on all of the critical operational tasks needed for setting up, launching, and managing the organization; and supporting its critical research, grant-making, advocacy, and convening workstreams.

The ideal candidate has deep operational experience including in both for-profits and non-profits and cares deeply about the substance of the work. They can hit the ground running, help drive every part of the organization towards ambitious goals, and keep trains running on time in a very rapidly evolving environment. Former managing directors for technology nonprofits or philanthropic foundations are likely to be an excellent match, as are former founders who prefer to be in a supporting role. For the right person, this role could transition to a managing director or COO role over time.



Strong candidates will have a mix of the following:

Location: This role is remote, with a preference for hires located in the San Francisco Bay Area to allow for in-person collaboration. Candidates would ideally overlap at least six hours with Pacific Time working hours.

Compensation: $110k-200k annually, with flexibility for exceptional candidates.


Please fill out this application form to be considered. We strongly encourage you to apply even if you believe you do not fulfill all of the requirements.

This role is open on a rolling basis, with applicants evaluated first come first serve.
