Working at Probably Good

 

What we’re looking for

 

Probably Good is a new and growing organization. We’re looking for people who are passionate about helping others achieve a significant positive impact, and want to join as one of our first core team members.

 

Inclusiveness

 

We believe that forming an inclusive workplace and a diverse team is not only the right thing to do, but also helps us do better work. The nature of our mission requires us to consider multiple perspectives, which is only possible by making Probably Good an inclusive and welcoming place to work.

To that end, we do our best to:

  • Minimize unnecessary job requirements which would deter capable people from applying. 

  • Work with candidates to try and accommodate different needs to allow everyone to do their best work and thrive with us.

  • Encourage people with diverse backgrounds to apply. To that end, even if you think that you might not be ‘good enough’ but you’re excited about our mission and want to contribute - please apply and give us a chance to get to know you and how you can help.

  • Many of our roles are flexible and we would consider hiring candidates at either a part-time or full-time capacity

  • In most cases, our hiring process includes a several months paid trial period, which we expect to make permanent if the role fits your expectations and you perform well.
