JustFix.nyc seeks a Program Director to take a leadership stake in our mission to provide tenants and organizers with new tools in fighting displacement in their neighborhoods.
The Program Director should possess an entrepreneurial spirit and a lifelong passion for tenants rights, particularly with working class communities and communities of color. The ideal candidate is a self-starter who contributes to a transformative vision of housing justice in New York City. They will engage with tenant leaders, fellow housing justice nonprofits, and other strategic partners in a collaborative and tenant-driven model.
Reporting directly to the Executive Director, you will work with a diverse and interdisciplinary team of colleagues and oversee our programs to ensure that thousands of working-class families across the city get the resources they need to fight back against predatory real estate interests.
Compensation is competitive and will include salary and full health/vision/dental insurance. Our dog-friendly (and people-friendly!) office is based in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.
As the Program Director you will:
