Careers at the Federation

Positively impact thousands of lives every day!

The Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund is the central organization for fundraising, planning, outreach, and leadership development for the Bay Area Jewish community. The Federation’s approach is to foster creativity and cooperation in the pursuit of a common goal – to ensure the survival and growth of the Jewish community at home and overseas. 


We Offer:

A Great Location

We’re located in San Francisco's financial district (unless otherwise stated), with close proximity to public transportation, great restaurants, shopping, food trucks, and theater. Plus, we’re right across the street from the Ferry Building, which is acclaimed for the quality and diversity of its fresh farm products and artisanal foods.

Comprehensive Benefits

We provide employer-sponsored medical, vision and dental coverage, company-paid life insurance, 403(b) retirement plans with employer contribution, flexible spending accounts, health savings accounts, and tax-free deductions for transportation and parking. Read our benefits guide to get more information.

Compensation & Time Off

We offer competitive pay and provide up to five weeks of vacation, as well as sick pay, flexible work schedules, federal and Jewish holidays off, and a paid sabbatical. 

Our Work Environment

We have an inclusive, collaborative, open culture that values people as our greatest asset – that’s why we encourage growth and professional development. We have staff and peer recognition programs and provide ergonomic assessments and accommodations. There is lots of space for your bike, we know how to throw an awesome holiday party, and, when the sun is out, we have amazing rooftop BBQs with a view that spans the entire Embarcadero. We also enjoy a healthy dose of competition when it comes to baking cook-offs and, yes, we even share those recipes.

Our Commitment to Diversity

We, the professional staff and volunteer leadership of the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund (the Federation), seek to build a Federation committed to our core tenets of tzedek (justice), kehillah (community), and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Guided by Jewish values, we will cultivate an organization that is truly representative of our Jewish community and beyond, allowing both our professionals and volunteer leaders to participate as their most authentic selves. Like the diverse and multicultural community that we are, and in the long history of Jewish peoplehood, we are ever-changing and adapting. We celebrate and embrace all individuals who make up the fabric of our community, representing all races, ethnicities, religions, denominations, gender identities, gender expressions, sexual orientations, ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, abilities, and national origins, among other identities. Our many identities are an asset as we build stronger, vibrant, and joyful communal belonging and a resilient ecosystem in which we all thrive, together.

We have a unique role in co-building a safe, engaged, and inclusive Bay Area Jewish community.  We recognize and take responsibility for questioning and transforming the bias that has created inequity and stymied belonging across our community. The Federation commits to consistently conducting our work in line with our core values and building an organizational culture that advances diversity, equity, racial justice, and belonging. We are identifying areas for growth and learning to implement, process, policy changes, and initiatives internally and in partnership with the Bay Area Jewish community. 

If you’re bright, driven, and enjoy working with a talented group of people in a learning-friendly, rapidly evolving environment, we want to hear from you.
