Working at WOEIP

We are a small team that values power-sharing, acknowledging our own and each others’ unique lived experiences and relationships to privilege, and centering the voices of those most impacted by our work. This requires a commitment to direct and open communication, and working through conflict rather than avoiding it. We want everyone to feel they have a voice on our team.

We’re happy to offer the following benefits (subject to updates):

  • Competitive salaries, including a starting baseline of $65,000 for all employees regardless of role, calculated using the Living Wage Calculator and adjusted based on market research

  • Unlimited paid time off (and the leeway to use it!)

  • Comprehensive paid health, dental, and vision coverage

  • Retirement plan with up to 5% match
  • Additional monthly benefits stipend

  • Hybrid work environment (currently Tuesdays and Thursdays in the office)
