Development Director - Job Application
Center for Humane Technology
We are building a new organization to tackle the problem of how technology manipulates and steers human evolutionary instincts. This is a massive, global problem that affects two billion people and counting. We're working to change the way technology platforms exploit the human experience—enabling addictions, undermining social relationships, spreading propaganda, and manipulating children, to name just a few examples.

Our team is small, skilled, mindful and agile, dedicated to creating humane design standards, policy, and business models that align deeply with our humanity. We partner with an extended team and network across industries, and expect to grow our core team quickly this year. We're looking for generalists with start-up experience who are up for the challenge of working towards the greater vision while simultaneously adapting to what's unfolding in the world.
