Job Description

AIDS United in DC is hiring a Program Manager – Special Projects of National Significance (remote-friendly).

The position is full-time, can be located in DC, and (once AU returns to in-person work) in a standard, white-collar office environment. Note, however, that about half of AU’s staff is permanently remote and a large portion of local staff are expected to continue working from home whenever we return to an office environment. So you do not need to be located in the DC area to apply.

We have a majority BIPOC and LGBTQ staff, four of us are part of the trans community, and many of our younger staff (and very-middle-aged me) use they/them/theirs as our pronouns. We’re also a really casual job environment when in-person, with many of us wearing jeans daily.

If you’d like any more information that’s not here or in the link to the job listing, please feel free to reach out to me at swyss@aidsunited.org with any questions I could answer. Thank you!
