The Cohort Coordinator is part of a collaborative and diverse NTEN team. We are all inspired by and accountable to our mission, community, and each other. The Cohort Coordinator is a core part of the program management team for Nonprofit Tech Readiness, a six-month cohort program supporting nonprofit staff building skills and leadership on technology management while advancing a technology-related project in their organizations. The Cohort Coordinator position includes technical duties of hosting group calls and online training events, customer service duties supporting participants in accessing and completing their work, and community engagement duties supporting participants in building relationships with each other for support and success. The Cohort Coordinator reports to the Senior Program Manager and will work closely with the Chief Program Officer and others on the program team and across the organization. 

All NTEN staff work remotely with flexible schedules from their homes. The Cohort Coordinator, like all staff, is expected to utilize internal communication and program management tools, including Slack (internal communication tool), Asana (collaborative project management tool), and Google Workspace (external communication, file storage, calendar), to ensure collaboration across time zones.

  • With all other NTEN staff contribute to planning for and the production of the annual Nonprofit Technology Conference.
  • Embrace NTEN’s mission, values, and commitment to equity and liberation.

  • Demonstrated success working independently to keep tasks and projects on track.
  • Ability to build constructive and effective relationships.

NTEN has no physical office, but half of the staff is in the Portland, OR, area. We hope to hire locally where in-person collaboration and support from the most number of team members is possible. Still, we are open to applicants based anywhere in the U.S. with the expectation that non-local applicants would potentially travel to Portland at most twice per year for staff planning. Domestic travel and extended hours will be required one week per year for the Nonprofit Technology Conference and may be required for other in-person events up to three times per year, depending upon the program. NTEN covers work-related travel costs.
