About Antigravity Investments

Antigravity Investments is an EA-aligned social enterprise that provides financial recommendations to effective charities that help them earn up to millions of dollars in additional revenue per year. We currently advise over $10 million in charitable capital and are backed by the Center for Effective Altruismā€™s Effective Altruism Grants program.

The Role

We are looking for a volunteer or paid contractor to increase the number of EA organizations and high-impact charities that are following best practices in the areas of treasury cash management and investing. For an example of our recommendations, please have a look at our EA Forum article on treasury cash management: https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/YjN6cGoXxPZeqCh4Z/eas-and-ea-orgs-should-move-cash-from-low-interest-to-high

Ideal applicants will have an interest in learning about finance and investing as well as marketing and sales experience. We are open to volunteers that have limited or no prior experience. Training will be provided in relevant areas, and tasks will be assigned according to a volunteerā€™s current skill level in a certain area. Paid contractors should already be familiar with investing, marketing, and sales. This work can be done remotely, and we also have shared office space available in Berkeley, CA.
