WHO WE ARE:

We’re a team of founders pioneering solutions to design and build human-centered communities around the world. New Story is headquartered in San Francisco and we have a team/office in Atlanta. Since starting about 4 years ago, we’ve raised over $20M, and have funded 2,000+ homes in 16 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, and to creating the developing world’s first ever 3D home printer. 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 bring a wide variety of perspectives, beliefs, and backgrounds. Our team grew up around the world, from Turkey to Georgia to Venezuela, and we 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 team member, you’ll quantify, know, and share the impact of our work on the ground.

⚕Premium Health Care: We believe in thriving communities and that starts with our team being happy and healthy. We offer generous health insurance, dental, and vision care. We also offer a monthly fitness 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 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).

📈Save for Retirement: 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.

We want strong, diverse teams built from different backgrounds, experiences, and identities. We’re ready for the ongoing work that goes into building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do your best work possible.

    • Our team has highly complex travel schedules with various cities on many trips. Additionally, we are often booking trips for 5+ people coming from various locations.

  • Manage both office orders & shipments
    • Ensure both offices have what they need to be successful. This could be as granular as setting up recurring orders for toilet paper and coffee or as high level as auditing task processes to ensure teams are working effectively.
  • Coordinate meetings
    • Participate in kick-off and department meetings to take notes & coordinate tasks across the team post meeting.
    • Manage timelines across departments to keep teams moving forward quickly & efficiently.
  • Manage donor checks

How to Apply
