Position Summary: 

We’re enthusiastically looking for a dynamic product and tech leader to reinvent, design, and expand the way we care for those who care for us. 

What you’ll work on

Our country’s social safety net is outdated and excludes millions of workers whose work falls outside a traditional 9-5 full-time employment structure. Nearly 2.5 million of these workers are domestic workers--nannies, house cleaners and home care workers--who work behind the closed doors of private residences in the informal economy. 

Domestic workers are almost all women, and disproportionately women of color and immigrants. Domestic work is not seen as “real work,”  despite the fact that elder care jobs and child care jobs are among the fastest growing occupations in the country. However, the women we rely on to care for our nation’s children, elders and our homes are usually working for poverty wages, without contracts and almost always without benefits. You will play a key leadership role in disrupting these inequities. 

On May 1, 2020, the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) helped pass the Philadelphia Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, which established the first right anywhere in the country to prorated, portable paid time off. Domestic workers in the City of Philadelphia now have the right to accrue paid leave for every hour worked, regardless of how many employers she may have. Other major municipalities are moving in a similar direction. What’s really at stake here is building an economy and society that works for all of us, not just some of us. And, as Executive-in-Residence at NDWA Labs, you’ll help lead the way toward this long-overdue reinvention of the safety net for a 21st-century workforce.

We are looking for a seasoned product leader who can design, implement, and lead a program end-to-end that works with municipalities to enforce this new right to paid time off for domestic workers. NDWA has already made good progress on this front with its voluntary benefits platform - Alia. The new product leader will be able to leverage the learnings from Alia for the new programs within municipalities.
