Work with Us

The Water Project is growing. If you have the skills we're looking for and desire a challenging opportunity to make an impact, we'd like to meet you.

Based in beautiful downtown Concord, NH - in the heart of New England - our small and dedicated staff thrives on collaboration with partners and volunteers. We inspire ideas and invent tools that equip our supporters to help people suffering needlessly without clean, safe water.

We're a non-profit with the heart of a tech start-up. We tell stories. We strengthen partners. We build solutions. And we change lives, one village at a time.

We also want you and your family to thrive, so we offer competitive salaries, excellent benefits and a great vacation policy (ask anyone!).

Are you ready to take on a life changing job?

Current Openings

Our donors are the key to everything we do. We're seeking someone who is passionate about supporting and motivating them while inspiring others to join our cause.

Who You Are

You are an enthusiastic and natural communicator who loves to inspire others.

You thrive in conversation. You are propelled by gratitude, passion and hospitality and know that people connecting with people makes the world a better place.

You’re not afraid to ask for money. Because you know that it’s really an incredible invitation to enable everything that safe, reliable water allows for those who need it the most.

You understand the power of advocacy and want to use your talents to e-mail, blog, talk and text with people about how they can get involved and support The Water Project. When you write, people respond.

You can multitask while remaining focused. There's a lot of conversations to juggle, so your mastery of the to-do list comes in handy. Your organization skills keep you moving forward without stress... which means you can take the time to listen to our supporters and figure out what they need to truly succeed.

You'll love working on a small team, brainstorming and creating innovative resources that will be catalysts to action for teachers, churches, civic groups, and others who want to get involved but perhaps need a jump start.

You'll thrive as someone who is self-motivated and enjoys working in a start-up environment where change is common and growth constant. You'll find satisfaction and a place to grow in your job when the only rules of relationship come from a care for others, locally and globally.

You want to be an vital part of something bigger than yourself and have no time to waste at an average job.

About Us

This stuff matters

The Water Project, Inc. helps provide clean, safe water and proper sanitation to people suffering needlessly without it in the developing world.

Our Christian worldview motivates our actions but doesn't limit our reach. It informs and is a measure of our integrity. It forms the foundation of our commitment to serve others by reconciling injustices like a lack of access to clean water so that all people might flourish as God intends.

We are keenly aware that sustainable life changing impact will always be the result of true collaboration between us, our partners on the ground, and most importanly, the people we serve. We seek to listen first, act carefully, and to always judge our efforts openly and honestly.
