Join Our Team
Be part of an innovative team dedicated to creating opportunities that empower women and eliminate poverty in Guatemala. We all come from different backgrounds – finance, the corporate world, the arts, and education. You’re a good fit for our team if you’re passionate, creative, and have a love for working on a dynamic and diverse team. We’re driven by our core values: empowerment, respect, solidarity, participation, quality, and integrity – and are looking for team members who want to live and breathe those values alongside us.
Just as we’re committed to creating opportunities that empower the thousands of women we serve in Guatemala, we’re also committed to our employees. Many of our employees are from the same areas where our clients live and speak their same indigenous languages. Employee benefits include paid time off, sick leave, health insurance, flex spending accounts, retirement compensation, and continuous learning. We value collaboration and diversity and are an equal opportunity employer.
