Hi, I’m Holden Karnofsky. AMA about jobs at Open Philanthropy

Hi EA Fo­rum,

I’m Holden Karnofsky I’m here to an­swer any ques­tions about jobs at Open Philan­thropy. I’ll be here to­day from 9:30am to 12:30pm Pa­cific time (with some breaks) and will likely re­spond to com­ments later on as well.

We’d hate to miss out on strong ap­pli­cants be­cause of mis­con­cep­tions about the roles, so I hope peo­ple will ask what­ever is on their mind, on top­ics from office en­vi­ron­ment to day-to-day work to the likely long-term tra­jec­tory of the role. I think Open Philan­thropy jobs are among the best pos­si­ble ways for effec­tive al­tru­ists to have im­pact, and I hope any­one who could imag­ine perform­ing well in these jobs will at least con­sider ap­ply­ing!

Please post differ­ent ques­tions as sep­a­rate com­ments, for dis­cus­sion thread­ing.

Look­ing for­ward to it!

Added 12:32pm Pa­cific time: This con­cludes the “offi­cial” por­tion of the AMA, but feel free to post more ques­tions; we may re­spond to them later on!
