Welcome Workplace For All

Whoever you are, you’re welcome here.

We know we will only succeed if we have a team who bring a wide variety of perspectives, beliefs and backgrounds.

Our team grew up around the world, from Turkey to Maine to Venezuela, and we believe in a diverse workplace. We encourage applicants to apply without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetics. We work hard to create a welcoming culture of shared values and radical candor.


We take care of our people.

Be part of the mission.

New Story started with building homes and now we’re on a mission to change the entire nonprofit sector. We don’t believe in non-essential personnel. Every team member brings a founders’ mindset and is a critical part of the mission.

Experience premium health care.

We believe in thriving communities and that starts with our team being happy and healthy. We offer generous health, dental, and vision care. We also offer a monthly fitness stipend so you can invest in your own wellness and health.

Take time off on your terms.

We offer unlimited vacation time so you can spend time with family and friends, recover from sickness, or just take time for yourself. We believe this freedom makes our team better and healthier as a whole.

Save for the future.

We want to see each team member thrive and that includes saving money for the long-term. New Story offers full-time employees a 401k plan.

Growth Team Internship

Growth Team Internship – Summer 2019

More than a billion people worldwide live in inadequate housing conditions. We exist to end survival mode living for vulnerable populations by providing safe homes and creating thriving communities.

In the summer of 2015, we were funded by Y Combinator, and in our first 3 years, we’ve raised more than $10M to build communities and to grow New Story. Innovation, impact results, and a “values-first” approach to our work on the ground make up our DNA.

The Role

  • Work alongside our Growth Team to spread the vision of New Story and get influential people, partners, and organizations excited about our work.
  • Develop and execute strategies to cultivate relationships with our prospective and current donors.
  • Play a role in actualizing the first-ever 3D printed community by assisting in logistics management and donor experience/engagement.

Benefits Of Interning At New Story

  • Learn from a fast-growing Y-Combinator startup and gain valuable real-world experience working with a tight-knit 22-person team.
  • Gain exposure to the non-profit and technology sectors, while helping build communities around the world through innovative use of hardware, software, and processes.
  • This is a remote or in-office position, with preference given to those in the San Francisco area (10-20 hours per week)
  • The internship lasts from May-August. School credit for your internship.
  • Bottom line? Do real work that matters.


Please send an email to and include three things:

  • An example of your written work.
  • A link to your social media and attached resume.
  • A 2-minute video sharing why you’re the best person for this role.

Deadline to apply: May 30, 2019
