Looking for potential co-founders for an Effective Zakat org.

I'm exploring launching a new org which aims at redirecting zakat to effective charities. The whole plan is extremely speculative at the moment (I'm currently funded to explore this idea, including looking for potential co-founders). I'm open to people from different backgrounds, locations, and experience levels. Ideally you'd be someone who is Muslim and has a decent amount of theological understanding around zakat, or have a history of working in Islamic Philanthropy. Fluent Arabic speakers would be a huge plus.

Hi Kaleem, I am really interested in this idea. I am a muslim with decent theological understanding around zakat and am fluent in arabic. Let's connect and discuss this more

Arb is a research consultancy led by Misha Yagudin and Gavin Leech. Here's our review of our first and second years. We worked on forecasting, vaccine strategy, AI risk, economic policy, grantmaking, large-scale data collection, a little software engineering, explaining highly technical concepts, and intellectual history. Lately we've been on a biotech jaunt and also events.

We're looking for researchers with some background in ML, forecasting, technical writing, blogging, or some other hard thing. Current staff include a philosophy PhD, two college dropouts, a superforecaster, a machine learning PhD, etc. We pay US wage.

Fully remote with optional long retreats. We spent a full half of 2022 colocated.

We only take work we think is important.

There are three obvious ways in which this role could develop, depending on experience and performance:

  • Research Fellow: This would involve full-time (or close to full-time) work on research in the broad area of ASI governance.

  • Chief of Staff: If we decided that we should form a new research institute, then there would be a need for a Chief of Staff. For more information on the nature of that role, see this description by Matt Mochary.

Legal Impact for Chickens is hiring an Operations Specialist!

 

https://www.legalimpactforchickens.org/operations

 

We’re looking for a passionate and hard-working Operations Specialist to join us as we continue to grow our nonprofit and fight for animals. This is a new position, and you will have the ability to influence our operations and play an important role in our work.

The responsibilities of this position are varied, covering operational, administrative, and paralegal work, and we will consider a variety of candidates and experiences. Therefore, the final job title may differ depending on the final candidate.

Want to join us?

 

About our work and why you should join us

Legal Impact for Chickens (LIC) is a 501(c)(3) litigation nonprofit. We work to protect farmed animals.

You may have seen our Costco shareholder derivative suit in The Washington Post, Fox Business, or CNN Business—or even on TikTok.

You also may have heard of LIC from our recent Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) recommendation.

Now, we’re looking for our next hire: an entrepreneurial Operations Specialist to support us in our fight for animals!

Legal Impact for Chickens is currently a team of three litigators. You will join LIC as our first non-litigator employee and support the entire team.

 

About you

You might be a great fit for this position if you have many of the following qualities:

• Passion for helping farmed animals

• Extremely organized, thoughtful, and dependable

• Strong interpersonal skills

• Interest in the law and belief that litigation can help animals

• Zealous, creative, and enthusiastic

• Excited to build this startup nonprofit!

• Willingness to help with all types of nonprofit startup work, from litigation support to HR to finance

• Strong work ethic and initiative

• Love of learning

• Paralegal experience or certificate preferred, but not required

• Experience with various aspects of operations (such as bookkeeping and IT) preferred, but not required

• Experience growing a new team preferred, but not required

• Kind to our fellow humans, and excited about creating a welcoming, inclusive team

 

About the role

You will be an integral part of LIC. You’ll help shape our organization’s future.

Your role will be a combination of (1) assisting the lawyers with litigation tasks, and (2) helping with everything else we need to do, to build and run a growing nonprofit organization!

Since this is such a small organization, you’ll wear many hats: Sometimes you’ll act as a paralegal, formatting a table of authorities, performing legal research, or preparing a binder for a hearing. Sometimes you’ll act as an HR manager, making sure we have the right trainings and benefits available. Sometimes you’ll act as an administrative assistant, tracking expenditures and donations, booking travel arrangements, or helping LIC’s president with email management. Sometimes you’ll act as LIC’s front line for communicating with the public, monitoring info@legalimpactforchickens.org emails, thanking donors, or making calls to customer service representatives on LIC’s behalf. Sometimes you’ll pitch in on LIC’s communications, social media, and public education efforts. If you’re the kind of person who likes to handle many different types of work, this role is for you!

This job offers tremendous opportunity for professional growth and the ability to create valuable impact for animals. The hope is for you to become an indispensable, long-time member of our new team.

Commitment: Full time

Location and travel: This is a remote, U.S.-based position. You must be available to travel for work as needed, since we will litigate all over the country. (Disabilities will be accommodated.)

Reports to: Alene Anello, LIC’s president

Salary: $50,000–$70,000 depending on experience

Benefits: Health insurance (with ability to buy dental), 401(k), life insurance, flexible schedule, unlimited PTO (plus mandatory vacation!), room for advancement as the organization grows

Applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, disability, age, medical condition, veteran status, marital status, political affiliation, or any other protected characteristic.

EA Hungary Head of Communications/Operations, early 2024

We are currently looking for highly motivated individual to join the team of EA Hungary. In this form you can apply for the position. Please make sure to read the full description before applying.

Selection process: We expect to have 2 or 3 rounds. First round being this application form. Applicants continuning to the next stage will have one or two additional interviews/work tasks.

Salary: 9-12 USD per hour (pre-tax). For exceptional candidates we might be able to offer a higher rate up to an additional 1-10 USD per hour. 

(Income tax in Hungary for people under 25 is 0%, above is 33%. For students above 25 years old it is 15%, but you will have to double-check this with your accountant.)

Workload: This is a part-time position. We expect to make an offer for between 15 to 30 hours per week. If our courses get an exceptionally high application rate, we might be able to offer additional hours.

A full time role has 25 days per year of paid vacation, accordingly a part time position would have between ~9 to ~19 days of paid vacation per year. 

Contract period: Starting around early March, you'd have a contract for 6 months with a 2 month-long trial period after which your performance will be evaluated. Around month 4-5, we will evaluate your progress again, based on which we can offer you a contract for an additional 6 months.

More about this role:

EA Hungary is currently run by its founder, Gergő Gáspár, and its current Head of Operations, Milán Alexy, as well as a number of committed volunteers. We are looking for an additional person to the team and would be happy to tailor the role towards their strengths, hence the possibility of joining either as an operations or communications person.

Example tasks for the operations role:

- Preparing and running meetups and events
 

- Coordinating our fellowships (e.g., evaluating applications, sorting people into groups based on their availability, supporting our mentors, booking and preparing venues with food and reading materials, etc.)
 

Example tasks for the communications role:

- Communicating with our partners via email/calls

- Marketing our programs (e.g., marketing on social media, reaching out to professors and academic dormitories, giving a short "pitch" of our program to university classes, tabling, distributing leaflets, etc.)

- Writing newsletters

- Public speaking (desirable but not essential)
 

Additional example tasks for both roles:

- Giving career advice

- Facilitating fellowships

- Supporting volunteers

We expect to see some additional overlap between the two roles as our organisation evolves.

An ideal candidate:

- Is passionate about making the world a better place using EA principles

- Has a good understanding of EA concepts (at least equivalent to having done the at-home reading version of the introductory course and the in-depth course)

- Knowledgeable about the main EA cause areas and the organisations working on them

- Has great attention to detail, has good interpersonal skills


 

More about this role:

You will be working closely with EA Hungary founder Gergő Gáspár and other members of the team. We expect that about 50-60% of your work hours will be "on-site" (either holding sessions or coworking with team members), with the rest of your work hours being possible to do online. The first 2 weeks of onboarding will be 100% in-person.

Location: Budapest, Hungary.

Deadline to apply: 2024. February 12.
