At charity: water, we value every background, identity, and experience. We believe that a diverse team, informed by different cultures and perspectives, makes us stronger.
We are committed to doing the work and challenging each other to be an organization in which everyone is respected and heard. We commit to providing genuine opportunities for all people to thrive. And we will continue to embed diversity, inclusion, belonging, and equality in everything we do.
Changing the world is a whole lot of work, so we take good care of our team.
A well-rested team is a happy team. Enjoy a generous schedule of paid holidays and unlimited vacation—just get your work done!
Get your OOO reply ready. We take select Fridays off in the summer and winter to prioritize work/life balance.
After five years, our team is encouraged to take a 6-week paid sabbatical to travel, volunteer, or work toward a personal goal.
We offer every full-time employee a 401k plan and employer match. Your future self will thank you.
Whether it's a conference or online course, we give yearly stipends so that every team member can continue to develop their craft.
We support all parents (and their future world-changers) with a 16-week paid parental leave, plus a transition period upon return.
We provide top-notch medical/dental/vision, flexible spending accounts, employer-paid life insurance, and short- and long-term disability.
Whether it's a gym membership, new running shoes, or funds to help cover daycare costs, this flexible benefit allows you to invest in your overall health and wellness.
As a remote-first workplace, our team receives a regular budget to create a comfortable, productive, and ergonomic home office space.
Around here, we don’t just work collaboratively. We celebrate birthdays, give regular #high-5s, and show off photos of our babies and pets. We travel abroad together (when it’s safe) and have virtual coffee in the meantime. We gather for All Staff Meetings and Friendsgivings, share hobbies, make valentines, and roast one another. Turns out, when you work for a cause you care about, it doesn’t take long to make friends out of your coworkers.
While we’ll always call NYC home, our team now works remotely across the US. No matter where our home offices are located— in an apartment in San Francisco or a beach bungalow in Florida or a farm in Pennsylvania—we are connected by one mission. Join us from wherever you are!
