NDWA Labs is the innovation arm of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, one of the country’s leading progressive social movement organizations. At NDWA Labs, we’re building products that transform domestic work jobs into good jobs by bringing respect, living wages, and benefits to an invisible, undervalued, and vulnerable part of the economy. Rather than optimizing within the status quo, NDWA Labs leverages tech to disrupt power and fundamentally change the ways in which work is organized and paid, for the millions of women and immigrants in the domestic work industry. Our flagship platform Alia Benefits extends a paid time off and a safety net to informal, gig, and cash workers for the first time.
NDWA Labs is seeking an experienced leader with exceptional communication skills to develop and implement our approach to monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL). The Learning and Evaluation Director will be the first role of its kind within NDWA Labs. The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of social enterprise and social change movements and is excited to work with our teams to creatively develop new ways of collecting information and measuring the effectiveness of our cross-disciplinary work. The director will excel at using a broad range of both quantitative and qualitative tools and methods and is comfortable operating concurrently at several levels of analysis. The person in this role is very self-directed, a careful listener, and a sharp observational and indirect learner. They are always seeking out the right resources and information to answer complex questions with both rigor and elegance. The Learnings and Evaluations Director will have a keen eye for design and storytelling, and is excited to share our learnings and approach to measuring impact. This position will be embedded within several projects with a primary focus on Alia Benefits and our overall functioning as a lab.
