AMA: Working at the Centre for Effective Altruism
CEA has a lot of open positions right now. So we’re hosting an AMA to answer questions about what it’s like to work here!
We’ll start to respond on Tuesday, 5⁄25, and keep going through the rest of the week. But if you happen to find this post after that, feel free to add a question, and Aaron will make sure the right people see it.
All questions are welcome, but here are some things we’d be especially keen to discuss:
Our open positions — what their impact might be, what sorts of people we’re looking to hire, etc.
CEA’s internal culture
What our different teams work on

Note: We previously had a separate AMA for the Events roles, but decided to merge it with this one.
