Who We Are
We’re a close, motivated team on a big mission to change trajectories for families, communities and, ultimately the larger nonprofit sector. New Story is headquartered in San Francisco, with a smaller team located in Atlanta. Since starting about 3 years ago, we’ve raised over $13M, and have funded 1,300+ homes in 11 communities around the world. Our journey has taken us through Y Combinator to being named one of Fast Company’s 2017 Most Innovative Companies In The World. We are fortunate to be backed by excellent partners and advisors.
A Welcoming Workplace for All
New Story is a company at the forefront of social impact and technology. We build homes for families across the globe living in survival mode. We make this happen with innovative technology that makes our work more effective and we share our tech, processes, and learnings with others in the non-profit space so they can scale and grow as well. We know we will only succeed if we have a team who brings a wide variety of perspectives and backgrounds. Our team grew up around the world, from Turkey to Georgia to Venezuela, and welcome all applicants, regardless of background, to apply. We work hard to create a welcoming culture of shared values and radical candor.
Benefits and Perks
Change Trajectories. New Story started with building homes and now we’re on a mission to change the entire nonprofit sector. As a brand experience associate, you’ll work directly with donors and help amplify our brand to impact more families living in survival mode. You’ll also get to see the impact on the ground in the countries we work.
Premium Health Care: We believe in thriving communities and that starts with our team being happy and healthy. This is why we offer generous health insurance, dental and vision care. We also offer a monthly stipend so you can invest in your own wellness and health.
Time off on your terms: Sure, we have unlimited vacation and you can take time for sickness, family, and fun as needed. But more than just words on a list, we believe in the value of taking time to reconnect and take care of yourself. We’ll ensure you’re taking time off to better yourself (and have fun).

Your writing skills perfectly balance creativity and professionalism. We’re not looking for a robot with perfect grammar, but rather someone who can write in such a way people want to read it.
