Design and maintain training and other technical assistance services that enable nonprofits to progress in their AI journey.


  • Educational Design and Instructional Excellence: Design and implement (mostly online, but occasionally in-person) engaging educational programs that effectively communicate technical concepts to non-technical audiences. Develop high-quality learning materials and instructional guides to enhance understanding and application of technical knowledge.
  • Material Production and Creative Communication: Produce compelling templates, slides, and other materials for visual and verbal presentations. Showcase the ability to distill complex technical jargon into easy-to-understand language, making technology accessible to all.
  • Operational Precision and Detail-Oriented Execution: Manage the logistics and execution of online sessions with flawless attention to detail (e.g. ensuring attendees receive pre-reads, making sure presenters are well-briefed and prepared, editing recordings and packaging follow-up materials), ensuring that all participants can contribute to a seamless learning experience.
  • Lead Special Projects: As the Strategy & Innovation function grows and evolves, the Learning & Insights Lead may be asked to take on a variety of projects that test and build our collective capacity to communicate with our partners and with the field as a whole (e.g. peer philanthropies, grant partners, technology companies, etc).


  • Subject Matter Expertise and Passion for Education: 5-7 years of directly related experience in learning and development, ideally within a medium to large organization where in-house creation of training materials was essential. The ideal candidate will have led nonprofit advising programs or has experience in designing educational programs that foster meaningful interactions between experts and audiences. Bring a strong background in learning design, coaching pedagogy, or a related discipline, with past experience blending that background with technology strongly preferred. Show a deep commitment to leveraging education as a tool for social change, driving the creation of materials that break down complex concepts into digestible, engaging content.
  • Innovative Problem Solver and Strategic Thinker: Utilize a strategic approach to educational content creation, constantly seeking creative methods to enhance learning and engagement. Demonstrate the ability to think critically about structuring and delivering content that maximizes impact and learning outcomes.
  • Proactive Collaboration and Feedback Integration: Work closely with partners and stakeholders to gather insights and feedback, using this information to refine and adjust educational offerings. Lead initiatives to develop and implement feedback mechanisms that inform and improve PJMF’s educational strategies.
  • Adaptability and Technological Fluency: Exhibit flexibility in adapting to new technologies and educational trends. Embrace the evolving learning and development landscape, testing new tools and techniques where appropriate to ensure that PJMF delivers high-quality technical assistance and coaching to its partners.
  • Fast and Nimble Learner: Quickly assimilate complex information from various sources, including grant reports and partner engagements. Use insights to produce relevant and timely content that aligns with PJMF’s strategic objectives.
  • Team-Oriented Independence: Think creatively, generate work autonomously, and advance work cross-functionally, ensuring that the Learning & Insights strategy complements the work of the broader Strategy & Innovation team.
  • Work Product Excellence: Uphold the highest standards of quality in all training materials and other collateral.
  • Passion/Cultural Alignment: Maintain genuine enthusiasm for building a better future in the digital era and ensure that the benefits of technological advancement are shared by all.
