10 Reasons to Work for 350.org


  1. We’re doing important work on one of the biggest issues of our time — perhaps of all time.
  2. We mean business. We do our best to run campaigns and projects that actually account for the scale of the climate crisis.
  3. We're playing for keeps. We pick bold, unrealistic fights — and then sometimes we win them.
  4. We get how social change works. Even if we don't win a campaign, we're changing the politics of what's possible.

  9. Our benefits are fantastic. Make sure to ask about them during the interview process.

Hiring Process

Our hiring process follows a standard pathway for most vacancies worldwide and can in most cases be conducted virtually. Our process assesses candidates based on merit, skills, past relevant experience, qualifications, culture fit, and alignment with 350’s theory of change.

  1. You apply through our online system.
  2. Your application is reviewed by the hiring committee.
  3. You have an initial screening call with a member of the hiring team. Typically about 15-20 minutes long.
  4. You have a second phone interview with a member of the hiring team. Typically lasting between 40-60 minutes. Covering your past experience,  your personal vision for the work, and your skills and qualifications.
  5. For the most promising candidates, we will typically conduct a skills test lasting 2-3 hours. Skills tests let us get a sense for how you’d approach the kind of tasks and problems you’d encounter in the role.
  6. The final stage in the hiring process is typically a group interview involving multiple members of the hiring committee and an HR representative. This interview allows the hiring committee to ask questions about your skills test, get more details about how your background and analysis fits with 350.org’s theory of change, and talk to you in a group setting.
  7. Lastly: the best candidate gets an offer letter and (hopefully) a job!

350.org strives to be an inclusive and collaborative group of people who bring a variety of approaches to the work we do.
