City and State: New York, NY
Founded in 2000, the Arcus Foundation is a private grantmaking institution dedicated to the idea that people can live in harmony with one another and the natural world. Arcus’ work is based on the belief that respect for diversity among peoples and in nature is essential to a positive future for our planet and all of its inhabitants. For more than a decade, Arcus has been a driving force behind groundbreaking social justice work to ensure equality for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) people around the world and conservation work to protect and enhance the lives of the world’s great apes. The Foundation works globally and has offices in New York City and Cambridge, United Kingdom. To learn more, visit: www.arcusfoundation.org.
Arcus pursues its social justice work through three overlapping core portfolios:
The International Human Rights Program: seeks to strengthen LGBT leadership and movements, primarily but not exclusively in select countries within the Global South, which can push for protections and equality laws in-country and through regional intergovernmental and United Nations bodies and that can advocate for LGBTQ inclusion within civil society in those countries.
The U.S. (United States) Social Justice Program: endeavors to build LGBT leadership in the US that is reflective of the nation’s emerging demographic shift towards a younger, people-of-color majority. We aspire to see this leadership guide the movement into deeper efforts to build protections for LGBT people and others in allied movements, and to advocate for cultural acceptance of LGBT people in the United States.
The Global Religions Program: focuses on amplifying the leadership and witness of pro-LGBT faith leaders and advocates as critical voices for LGBT inclusion within their faiths and the larger civil society. This program also aims to strengthen the capacity and coordination of those who work to defeat or reverse “religious exemptions” laws. Global Religions funds programs in the U.S. and internationally, often in close partnership with the other two programs, above.
The Director of the Global Religions Program serves as the lead subject matter and strategy expert responsible for the implementation of the Global Religious program within the Social Justice Program of the Arcus Foundation. This program seeks to strengthen the capacity of religious advocates to assume leadership roles in the global pursuit of LGBT equality.

Therefore, the success of the Director is highly dependent on: establishing strong collaborative working relationships with the SJ Team members and the SJ Vice President; building and extending strategic partnerships with external partners and stakeholders; the capacity and desire to build and work within a team environment and; ensuring that the diverse voices of partners and stakeholders are heard and valued, and that they inform the development and implementation of program strategies.

Listening and Learning:

International Festival of Jewish Performing Arts
We're interviewing for an experienced (3 or more years) Mechanical Engineer who is exceptionally talented and experienced at making things that work well, and are highly manufacturable. We want someone who is an expert user of SolidWorks, but also very hands-on, and can build almost anything. Experience in robotics, and/or medical products is a plus.
We also interviewing very experienced Industrial Designers for freelance work.
Inch is a clever and scrappy engineering and product development consultancy founded in 1990. We do more than just make products that work well and look great. We are improving nutrition, exposing children to great books, and providing pure oxygen to third world health clinics for the first time. We work with clients that we respect, and we create products that we believe in.
We have developed a wide range of products, including a Bluetooth Thermometer (iDevices), CD jewel box (Sony), wing de-icing systems (Boeing), audio speakers (Boston Acoustics), dental syringes (Johnson & Johnson), LED lighting fixtures (LSI), cosmetics products (Revlon), and a portable oxygen generator.
Our Bluetooth grilling thermometer is at the Apple stores, and we won a Best of CES award last year. Inch has been featured in: The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Inc. Magazine and at the London Design Museum.
What we’re looking for:
We’re looking for an experienced Mechanical Engineer who has been designing devices for 5 years or longer. If you have 20 years of experience, our offer will reflect that. We want a problem solver who has a talent for invention, is experienced at building working devices, models, or contraptions, and has moved dozens of products from design to production. You need to be an artist and an engineer. Most of the products we make have to both, work great, and look amazing (elegant, tough, fun, ...). You’ll need to have a lot of patience, and can handle starting over several times to develop a design that’s a little better than the third iteration. You also have to like working hard – sometimes projects need to move unreasonably fast.
We are looking for people that understand the physics of the problems they are solving. We want an engineer that has had to sort out enough failures to be able to anticipate what might go wrong on a new design, and fix it before sending it out for fabrication. You need to have at least a Bachelor’s degree, and be able to demonstrate sensitivity to the practicalities of making a product that people love to use. For this position, we are only considering people that have 3 or more years of experience developing, prototyping, and moving products into manufacturing.
Please send us an email, firstname.lastname@example.org with "Clever & Scrappy Engineer" as the subject. Send images, drawings and anecdotes to help us get to know you. Feel free to reach way back and tell us what you we're doing in 7th grade -- we're interested in everything you think is important. Send an email with PDF attachments, or a link to a website. Please don’t call.
Thank you. We’re looking forward to learning more about you!
