Head of Programming & Events

New York, United States


NationSwell is a leading social impact media company. We're a platform for problem-solvers, with the mission to power the solutions and innovations that will move our country forward.

We advance this mission through a digital media platform that tells powerful, authentic human stories of problem-solvers, which reached 200M people with our content last year; through the NationSwell Council, a special membership community of more than 800 (and growing) service-minded leaders who share a passion for taking action around solutions and collaborating with and supporting each other (the Council was mentioned in this recent article in The Atlantic as A Cure for Post-Election Malaise); and our Impact Studio, where we work with mission-aligned companies, foundations and not-for-profits like Starbucks, Seventh Generation, Comcast, Cisco, Kauffman Foundation, and The Nature Conservancy to support and amplify their social impact efforts through story-telling, digital distribution, and creative campaigns.

We’re passionate about telling the stories of creative solutions that bridge the opportunity divide, advance national service, protect the environment, and make government work. We love our team, and show it with competitive salaries, a flexible and remote working environment, an amazing culture, and a strong dedication to our mission.

NationSwell is seeking a senior leader to oversee and implement the NationSwell Council’s programming strategy. The Head of Programming will be a strategic thought-partner on designing rich, substantive event experiences for members that reflect their interests, educate them on important issues facing our country, and expose them to new ideas, innovations, and solutions. This colleague will also lead on sourcing experts to join NSC conversations as well as manage and contribute to a team that produces a high volume of events across our seven -- and growing -- chapters.

A successful candidate will interface directly with a world-class group of innovators, experts, and change-makers. This is an incredible opportunity for a senior leader to support a unique community of service-minded leaders, drive enormous social impact, and to play a key role at an exciting, high-growth, and purpose-driven company.
