New America is launching a mobility lab (which is still to be named) focused on identifying new ways of developing policy and breaking through the barriers of ineffective policy and outdated narratives. This work will straddle the implementation practices of digital services efforts and the world of policy development.
We're looking for two people to join and help us build this new team. We will be focused on family economic security including efforts to improve paid leave, income security and increasing access to childcare and incomes for care workers. However, potential team members should be comfortable operating in a startup environment with some ambiguity as we continue to identify gaps and set goals for improving family economic security.
Potential applicants are self-directed leaders and team players with excellent analytical, writing, and research capacity. They will have experience in public policy and analysis and strong project management skills and a passion for how these policies reach those they are designed for. They will seek to join a startup working inside a larger, established think-tank and join the founder in building out the vision and strategy for this work.
