  • You are outgoing, radically welcoming, and genuinely enjoy being in social environments
  • You find meaning in helping people build community and develop their Jewish identities 
  • You believe in developing organizational partnerships to strengthen the fabric of a vibrant Jewish community in Philadelphia

  • You are detail oriented, meticulous and thorough

Life at Tribe 12:

  • It’s seriously fun to work at Tribe 12! We’re intentional about company culture and work-life balance and integration.
  • Our twelve “core values” (“There is a Jewish community for everyone” and “Act as guides, not authorities”, for example) ground us and inform our work on a day to day basis.
  • Hybrid work environment – full-time staff work two days per week in the office.
  • We work collaboratively out of The Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History in Old City, Philadelphia, where there are many opportunities for networking and professional development. 
  • We’re a small team who dive head first into challenges. We start with “why” when approaching new ideas, we aren’t afraid to try new things and fail fast, and we pick up slack when someone needs extra support.
  • We use the latest technology to be an efficient team and stay relevant to our demographic. On a typical day, you might use Slack, Eventbrite, Salesforce and the Google suite to communicate and stay organized.

Support from Tribe 12 will include: 

  • Project budget and coffee date budget
  • A budget for professional development and to attend networking opportunities 
  • Supervision and guidance from Tribe 12 senior staff 
  • Marketing and logistics support from Tribe 12 staff 

Tribe 12 is an equal-opportunity employer. We believe cultural fit doesn’t mean culturally identical and that diversity of thought helps us to challenge one another to think big and think differently. We serve an array of people from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and personal experiences and strive to build a team that is representative of that community. We encourage applications from individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups.
