Careers

Join us at the forefront of change in foster care.

Innovation and impact
We’re working together to creatively disrupt foster care. We challenge one another to surface new perspectives and build unprecedented solutions. Our work puts us in partnership with amazing people and organizations driving systems change. This includes Federal and state lawmakers and administrators, grassroots innovators, cutting-edge tech companies, leading philanthropists, and top experts, influencers, and academics working to address the toughest challenges.

Dynamic collaboration
We’re committed to building a culture and organization that reflects the work we do in the world. In everything we do, we celebrate diversity, and value every contribution. Our team is located across the country and possesses a wide range of expertise across a breadth of sectors: research & design, program development and implementation, public policy and administration, tech, advocacy, philanthropy, communications, and more. Many of us have lived experience or close proximity to foster care or other lived experiences that provide useful insights for the work we do. To ensure we leverage these strengths, we often work cross functionally and across departments.

Flexibility
Bringing our best selves to work means taking care of ourselves and having control over our schedule and workflow. We work from home and collaborate with our managers and peers to establish a flexible schedule that works for everyone. We use an array of digital tools for managing internal communications and collaboration that accommodate a variety of working styles. We have no-meeting Fridays. We provide a flexible vacation policy and we mean it – as long as each person’s important work is getting done, we encourage each other to put the computer and phone aside and enjoy their families, communities, and hobbies.

Whole Human Support
We provide generous health, dental, and vision coverage for you and your family. For full time employees, this means 100% premium coverage for you and 50% premium coverage for your dependents. Ensuring we build a healthy, happy team is at the core of who we are.

We believe mental health matters as much as physical health. Sick days are yours to take, whether for a stomach bug or a mental health reset. Supporting you as a whole human is a priority.

We also offer a 401k retirement plan option, so our team members are able to invest in their future with each paycheck if they choose to.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging
We’re committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Building a community within TOU where each person feels empowered to be their full selves. We believe the best way we can solve tough problems is to include individuals impacted by them. 

I lead evidential research so that we can be best positioned to inform investigation-related policy and practice recommendations.

I test our Virtual Support Services by monitoring and evaluating the work of our Community Responders, understanding target regions, and ensuring our practices are of high quality and impact so that Think of Us can continue to co-design new child welfare interventions and solutions.
