At Founders Pledge, our mission is to empower entrepreneurs to do immense good. Since launching in 2015, we’ve raised over $10 billion for the most impactful social causes. We offer the simplest path to impact for successful entrepreneurs, providing end-to-end giving infrastructure, pioneering research, and access to a worldwide network of experts. In other words, we help tech leaders become strategic philanthropists. Our 1700+ members include the people behind industry-leading companies such as Airbnb, UiPath, Dropbox, Skype, Spotify, and Uber.

We’re now looking for a Climate Communications Manager to join us, on an 18-month FTC (which we hope to extend), to drive donations to our highly-impactful Climate Change Fund. You’ll be an integral part of our Climate Research team, building, leading and implementing our strategic communications plan. Ultimately, you’ll be responsible for amplifying our cutting-edge climate research, boosting the reputation of Founders Pledge Climate and of our research more broadly.

You’ll be our in-house Climate comms expert and will ensure that our brand is both associated with high-quality research and that we’re positioned as thought leaders in the climate space. In this varied role, you’ll be flexing your writing abilities, turning our quantitative research into digestible comms, and building relationships with the media and other thought leaders.


  • Working with our Climate Research team to roll-out strategic communications to engage both our members and non-members alike. You’ll think about where we can talk about our climate research, who we should be talking to, how we should be saying it, and ensure your ideas fit with our wider FP comms strategy.
  • Writing compelling content for those channels you’ve identified as being the most relevant and impactful (which might be complementary to our current comms channels - email, LinkedIn, Twitter, our website and our member-facing app). You’ll turn our research into web content and blogs, social media posts, supporting materials for senior stakeholders attending events, etc. You’ll rewrite our research reports or sections of research reports for wider consumption.
  • Media outreach. You’ll pitch specific publications to the media. This could be traditional news media, but also podcast hosts, influential bloggers, and academics.
  • Collaborating with our Comms team to ensure our Climate communications outputs complement the broader Founders Pledge comms strategy and align with our brand.
  • Evaluating the impact of your communications to guide future efforts. You’ll review which channels have been the most impactful and which content has encouraged donors to take action.
  • Building a social media presence for both Founders Pledge and members of the Climate team.
  • Responding to questions and comments on our publications, for example on the Effective Altruism Forum and via email.


  • Experience with PR and/or building relationships with the media.
  • A strong passion for creating engaging, tailored content, on a variety of media, including digital platforms, to influence and further enhance our reputation. You’ll have the opportunity to flex your strong writing skills.
  • Experience, or the ability to edit and condense raw research outputs into publicly accessible formats.
  • A keen interest in climate change and ability to effectively communicate across a variety of channels.
  • Experience managing social media platforms.
  • Familiarity with Effective Altruism.
  • A basic understanding of relevant research methodologies.

Nice to have:

  • An in-depth knowledge of climate change discourse and policy.  You can get a sense of our focus from this recent podcast.
  • Science literacy, the ability to understand and synthesize scientific publications
  • Experience building and implementing a forward-thinking communications strategy - with a focus on reaching diverse audiences.
