You are not an ordinary person. And this is not an ordinary job opportunity.

LIFE

I love creating things – From creating a successful coaching company right after college, to a few not so successful and un-successful companies in the last 10 years, and then to creating an innovative and impactful community sanitation organization, Samagra Empowerment Foundation.

I still have many more things to create in this world. In the next 20 years, I want to create more impact than I ever have.

I started Samagra with the MISSION to eradicate poverty by:

  • “Unlocking Agency” for ALL
  • Enhancing the “Quality of Life” for ALL
  • Increasing “Transparency, Accountability & Efficiency” for ALL levels of Government

And I know very well that in order to accomplish these Big Hairy Audacious Goals, I need to build an awesome team.

I know that I will need to bring together people from diverse backgrounds (designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, leaders and change-makers) under one roof so that we can challenge the status quo, build new ways of doing things and build a better world for ALLjob opportunity


This is why I want YOU to join hands with Samagra to:

“Positively Impact the lives of over 250 Million people in the next 10 years by building India’s First Billion Dollar Non-Profit“.

Let’ shape the Future of Humanity by Building An Equitable World – A world in which all people are empowered with the ability to make decisions about their communities, and where all communities are fully engaged in the vital task of shaping our collective future.

Challenges & Opportunities

We need help across ALL the fundamental aspects of building an impactful organization: HR, Operations, Marketing, Sales, Business Development, Finance, Government Relations, Fundraising, Product Development, R&D, Technology Development, Community Engagement etc:responsibility

More and More People Are Joining Our Mission

People often ask me: “Why are Smart people leaving their jobs, taking a pay cut and joining Samagra?”

I tell them that, I have always believed that there are many smart people out there, who are realizing that they were put on this earth for a higher purpose and who wantto work towards empowering others and in that process empower themselves and give their lives more meaningresponsibility

And since the day I have started Samagra, my role has always been to build Samagra as THE perfect place to attract and retain these passionate and creative people ready to unleash their potential.

If you believe YOU are the person ready for this challenge & transformation, this opportunity is for you.

If you ask others who work with me, you will know that reflection, learning, and new ideas permeate everyday conversations. And you’ll be one of the top people I interact with. And if you like our journey thus far, you will like learning from it, with front row seats!

I know that in a few months time, you will be contributing to Samagra’s growth and mission in new ways.

That being said, this opportunity is not at all easy or gratifying in the conventional ways.

Changing the World is NOT easy

  • This work requires RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE – Perseverance in the face of often unprecedented and unpredictable logistical, social, cultural, political and administrative hurdles

  • This work is TEDIOUS – It involves taking multiple responsibilities and working long hours, 6 days a week [and most likely on Sundays too]. Although we have fun while we are working on changing the world, your job will be grueling and will often take you out of your comfort zone. [but that is where true growth happens 😊]
  • This work requires AUTHENTICITY – Low ego attitude with a willingness to shift from high-level critical thinking to stepping in and helping drive implementation on the ground
  • This work requires creating VALUE FOR ALL STAKEHOLDERS – A deep-seated instinct to understanding and serving the customer, be it the residents of urban slums, entrepreneurs, business partners, the team or the Board
  • This work requires PRAGMATIC INNOVATION – New ideas to improve systems, people, and operations, especially as Samagra works to make its model replicable and scalable
  • This work involves WORKING IN TEAMS – You will interact with a broad range of people from diverse backgrounds and experiences. You have to have or will have develop high emotional intelligence to grow together and accomplish our common goals.
  • This work EVOLVES – Sometimes instructions are crystal clear. Sometimes there are no instructions. You will need to improvise, ideate, and find solutions in the midst of extreme ambiguity, and often, urgency. If you crave certainty and predictability, you will get some, but on some days you will have none.
  • And there are no conventional ‘promotions’ – No definite increments and bonuses over time. The sense of growth comes with the things we will create with your help. For the bulk of it, results will be seen over time. We are looking for someone who is patient and relentless

But, this opportunity has its Rewards.

  • Mastery & Learning: Prepare for an expansion of your mind. What you see from the above is just the beginning.
  • Purpose and Adventure: The things we will create together will be epic, and exceptional. And the process will be full of the unexpected. You might be able to tell your grandchildren about the time you almost got eaten by an alligator. Or perhaps the time your Excel Spreadsheet almost crashed. Or how an alligator ate your spreadsheet !!
  • Autonomy: There will no one to micro-manage your day to day. We will make Most Important Goals together and then you will work with teams to accomplish your goals.

We are looking for Leadership that rejects complacency, breaks through bureaucracy, and challenges corruption.

You absolutely need to hunger to learn and desire to do more and a strong work ethicthat deeply aligned with Samagra’s core value – “Doing what’s right, not what’s easy”
