The AI Foundation Non-profit is looking to hire an Executive Director to lead and expand our current initiatives.

The non-profit focus is twofold:
1) Develop Protective technologies and products developed to counteract the negative affects of AI produced synthetic media (usually referred to as Deepfakes) and manipulations.
2) Amplifying beneficial AI, such as creating a conversational AI in a case where there is a clear public benefit.

The Executive Director will be primarily responsible for raising funds into the non-profit, implementing research collaborations, developing and releasing beneficial AI products, and to be the leader of the non-profit, reporting directly to the Board of Directors.

This person does not need to be a PhD researcher, but need to be able to credibly communicate with researchers, engineers, media, and be able to speak at conferences around the world.

If you want to help protect the world through the use of positive AI technology, products and awareness, we'd love to meet you!

This person should have:

  • A personal mission focused around lessening the negative effects of AI manipulations, including synthetic media
  • Strong background in fundraising for either non-profit, government or for-profit organizations
  • Strong background writing grant requests and research into potential funding organizations and partners
  • Entrepreneurial background, desire and ability to start something from scratch

AI Foundation is committed to a culture of flexibility, diversity, and fun for all of our employees. We are working on some of the most challenging technical problems and we know the solutions will come from all of us working together in an inclusive, transparent and open manner.
