Our Values

Meaningful Work at PJMF

We’re not just building a human-centered tech future; we’re building a world-class team. PJMF is the quintessential place where talented individuals bring their full capabilities for a transformative stop on their professional journey—contributing their talents to advance our purpose and continuing the legacy of social impact beyond PJMF. 

At PJMF, we value high-quality work. We are a passionate group of changemakers who maintain a bias toward action and demonstrate initiative to discover and fix issues without being told to do so. We care deeply and challenge each other directly. Feedback is commonplace and not just a once-a-year event. Our colleagues not only welcome but thrive in highly ambiguous environments. We rely on trust and positive intent in developing strong professional relationships.

You’ll have the opportunity to contribute to meaningful projects that address some of the most pressing global challenges with colleagues whose first instinct is ownership and execution. For every talented PJMF team member, we need one more. Join us on this journey.

Our Total Rewards

As a preferred employer in the social and philanthropic sector, we value the talents of our diverse workforce, offering competitive salaries aligned with market conditions. Guided by the vision that everyone deserves to live a healthy and productive life, our benefits program fosters career growth, financial wellness, and long-term security.

We offer Foundation-paid medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees, their spouses or domestic partners, and dependents. In addition, we provide HSA/FSA plans, life insurance, and short- and long-term disability coverage.

Our 401(k) retirement plan includes generous matching of up to 6% of annual pay plus an additional discretionary match at the end of the year.

We offer unlimited paid time off, which allows team members to take the time they need for vacation or illness so they can return to work able to contribute fully to our mission. In addition, the Foundation recognizes 11 paid national holidays per year and may also announce closure for local, regional or state holidays.

Employees work 100% remotely–but not alone–alongside a community of mature, socially minded professionals. We provide a monthly work support stipend to offset the costs of phone, internet, or co-working space.

In addition to our health coverage, we offer access to Ginger, Gympass, Headspace, and SmartSpend Plus, along with financial well-being service providers.

We provide up to 6 months of gender-neutral paid leave for parents and caregivers when they have a new addition to their families.

We encourage team members to explore development opportunities such as peer learning, internal training, and external activities.

We support our team members’ personal investments in social impact by matching eligible charitable donations 1:1 up to $1,000 per calendar year.
