Constellation is a nonprofit research center whose mission is to help the world navigate the development of superhuman AI. We host and support researchers from nonprofit organizations, universities, companies, think tanks, and government. Our programs foster knowledge sharing and collaboration across the AI safety field.
We’re seeking a generalist leader for our Operations team who can contribute strategically to the company and help Constellation build a world-class organization as we grow. Reporting to the COO, this individual will be responsible for complex, high-impact initiatives and domains, and will be expected to solve large, ambiguous problems with very limited direction. Flexibility and the desire to think and communicate from first principles is key. This role likely involves managing and growing a team, but could be scoped as a senior individual lieutenant to the COO.
This role could accommodate a mid-career leader capable of managing teams and ready to have a more strategic impact, or a more senior leader with executive experience at a larger company.
Constellation is currently a team of 7, with plans to roughly double in size this year. As an early company leader, this person will find their duties involve both strategic matters as well as hands-on operational work.
Responsibilities will be tailored to the individual, but could include:
$150,000 - $250,000 a year
This is a full time, on-site role. We may be willing to sponsor visas for this role, though our ability to do so may depend on the circumstances. We would like the candidate to start as soon as possible after receiving an offer, though there is some flexibility.
Our office is in downtown Berkeley, CA, thirteen seconds from the nearest BART (metro) stop. Compensation will depend on experience, but will likely be $150k-$250k/year. We offer catered lunches and dinners, and cover PPO health, dental, and vision insurance.
We are committed to diversity and equal opportunity in all aspects of our hiring process. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We welcome and encourage all qualified candidates to apply for our open positions.
