This full-time position reports to the VP of Engagement and is based out of beautiful southern California (Irvine), where residents are so weather-spoiled, they complain when temperatures drop below 70 or rise above 85. For the time being, this is a work-from-home role since the office is closed due to COVID-19. But when we’re back in the office, we enjoy casual dress every day, a kitchen stocked with refreshments, occasional summer BBQs and sharing their love of yoga, games and reading with each other. Continuing education and community volunteering are part of our core values and encouraged year-round. This role may require some travel, and absolutely requires a sunny disposition! Let’s talk!
