If you want to join an organization and do something extraordinary, this may be just the opportunity you need.  Your typical day at R Street may include helping divide responsibilities for a new project between experts on our various teams, helping outline a potential organizational response to a recent cyber attack and meeting with a foundation program officer to discuss R Street’s potential role in a new effort. This role is part of our management team and will report to and work closely with the Associate Vice President of Policy.  Other Aspects of Your Role Establish a clear policy strategy for the Technology and Innovation, Cyber and National Security portfolio, demonstrating broad familiarity with programming and serving as a brand ambassador.

This is a job for someone who has a firm grasp of fundraising, nonprofit business strategy and management.
