We’re seeking a strategic and collaborative Program Manager to lead our work on platform accountability: confronting disinformation, hate speech and other harms created by big tech, while harnessing the opportunities presented their technologies present.
The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in evolving and implementing our strategy in this area, carry out all relevant stages of grant making, and conduct advocacy on behalf of OSF as appropriate. We expect the candidate to bring sharp strategic thinking, strong communication skills, a commitment to collaboration, and deep knowledge of the issues of disinformation, hate speech, and platform regulation.

We are active in more than 120 countries, making us the world’s largest private funder of independent groups working for justice, democratic governance, and human rights.
The Technology & Society Division in Global Programs-Expression confronts the most significant threats and opportunities for open society spawned by changes in information technology. These technologies are transforming the ways governments and corporations exercise power, and the ways citizens communicate and mobilize to keep that power accountable. The Team supports work to understand the impacts of these technological changes, and to take risks with inventive ways to engage in and shape this fast-changing field.
