The Nonprofit Tech Job Board is here!

Over the years, we’ve had lots of requests for a job board for the NTEN community. We aim to please and we’re thrilled to announce a beta version of NTEN’s brand new job board.

NTEN’s Nonprofit Tech Job Board is a platform dedicated exclusively to paid nonprofit technology career opportunities. You can visit jobs.nten.org or access the link from the navigation menu either at community.NTEN.org or on any NTEN page under the Community section, to browse, search, or post a job listing.

The job board will present a change as we’ve currently pointed people to our NTEN Discuss group to post job opportunities. Job postings in the NTEN online community platform have increased in the last couple of years and we’ve heard about it: many group members have flagged these posts as spam, asked staff to delete them, and often requested discussions stay on topic. We don’t want to discourage hiring from this community! Instead, we’ve taken the feedback from community members, our committees, and board and launched the Nonprofit Tech Job Board specifically for these types of postings. With the new job board, any job postings made to the NTEN online community platform will be deleted. This way we are keeping the focus of the online groups on the conversations, information sharing, and connections between community members.

The charge for posting a job is also a significant change, but we believe the added value of the formal job board more than makes up for this cost. With a dedicated job board, your postings will be in a prominent place on the Web and the NTEN website. The job board will be featured in NTEN’s monthly Member Newsletter that goes to over 8,000 individuals, and in our monthly Connect Newsletter with over 33,000 subscribers. Job postings will also receive social media promotion. We’ve been very conscious to keep the price affordable and below the cost of most job posting sites. As an NTEN Member, you’ll receive 50% off any job postings – which represents a substantial savings, especially with multiple job postings.

Nonprofit Tech Jobs is still in beta. As we continue NTEN.org’s website redesign, we will continue to gather feedback, request your recommendations, and further refine and integrate the job board with NTEN’s website and resources.
