The Director of Evaluation & Learning will design, implement and continuously refine The Audacious Project’s approach and system for assessing the impact and garnering the learnings from the portfolio of funded projects. This person will be a valuable consultative resource that enables The Audacious Project to be more effective, ultimately creating greater impact across the portfolio. Operating within a nimble team, the Director will build an evaluation function that is right sized for the organization and its role as a platform for donors to invest directly (Audacious itself doesn’t make grants). The evaluation function will be designed to meet the unique positioning and needs of this platform, and not be overly cumbersome or viewed as excessive scrutiny by donors and grantees.

This position will be responsible for sharing performance monitoring findings with the team, the portfolio of projects, the TED and Audacious donor communities, and to the sector at large. The learnings gathered will also provide important inputs to the team for refining and improving future Audacious cycles. This position will also support the overall investment practice, from contributing to due diligence of potential candidates and providing measurement-related guidance into their investment proposals, to providing consultative support to Audacious projects, and supporting the reporting of project outcomes and impact.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an experienced, equity-focused, entrepreneurial professional looking to join a growing team that facilitates ongoing donor investment in 35+ social change projects (with $2.8B+ in active funding) and is excited to build a new practice area for the Audacious team. While the TED office is located in New York, this position is fully flexible on location, including outside the United States (some regular working hours overlap with US time zones will be necessary).
