Are you ready to change investor and company practices on climate change and other sustainability challenges? Ceres is a sustainability nonprofit organization working with the most influential investors and companies to build leadership and drive solutions throughout the economy. Through powerful networks and advocacy, Ceres tackles the world's biggest sustainability challenges, including the climate crisis, water scarcity and pollution, and inequitable workplaces.

UPDATE: Ceres is fortunate enough to be in a position to offer our current workforce the opportunity to work remotely during this challenging time. While we undergo this transition, we understand that there may be some uncertainty surrounding hiring and our ability to add new members to the Ceres team. Ceres will continue to move forward with hiring and onboarding new staff throughout the coming weeks. We recognize that the process may not move as quickly given our new virtual reality, and ask for your patience and flexibility as we navigate this new normal.


Ceres is proud to have grown our full time staff by more than 12% in the last year. Because of support from foundations, donors and our community at large, we continue to expand our workforce, presenting career growth opportunities to our current staff and creating new job positions to further support our successful programs and initiatives.

In the past five years we have nearly doubled our staff and project our growth rate to be above 15% for this coming year. We are excited to present the following positions for hire as we continue to expand our vision and advocacy outreach.

Ceres tackles some of the world's biggest, most complex sustainability issues to create a more just, equitable world. We work to transform the economy and build the business case for a sustainable future in engaging with investors, companies, policymakers and partner organizations. Our mission to change capital markets calls for creative solutions, credible data, and compelling arguments.

To succeed, we need to mirror the leadership expectations we advocate for in the Ceres Roadmap for Sustainability . We ask companies to build inclusive, equitable and engaged work environments, and we, ourselves, must lead by example to model a workplace that inspires and encourages others and represents the society and constituencies we hope will benefit from our work.

Ceres values collaboration, innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit. We know the best ideas are often generated in teams that offer different points of view and include people from a wide range of backgrounds. An open-minded, creative workplace is only possible when differences are truly valued, an inclusive culture is created and sustained, and policies and practices are equitable.

For Ceres, sustainability is the bottom line and everyone is an equal stakeholder in the fate of our planet. The issues we address, such as water scarcity and pollution, climate change, and inequitable workplaces, affect people across diverse constituencies, and we believe diverse teams are necessary for creating and leading on solutions to address these issues.
