Reporting to: Chief Executive Officer
Since 2015, we have doubled in size year over year and trained more than 2,500 students across 49 colleges and universities. Now with major, multi-year endorsements from Venture Capital Firms like Andreessen Horowitz, large employers like Walmart, and top technology companies like Facebook and Microsoft, CodePath is building a world-class leadership team and seeking a talented and ambitious director of development to own our annual fundraising strategy and execution.
CodePath is an innovative education nonprofit building the largest pipeline of high-performing, underrepresented software engineers in the industry. We are the first organization in history to centralize student support, curriculum, and classroom operations across dozens of for-credit, in-person college classrooms. Our unique combination of student-led courses with remote support by professional engineers and a robust online learning platform produces scalable, high impact programs that have received major endorsements from professors, large funders, and major corporations.
This is a dream role for a Development Director who wants to work for an exciting, mission-driven organization that moves at startup speed without compromising student engagement or outcomes.
The director of development will be CodePath’s first full-time fundraising leadership hire. You will need to own all aspects of fundraising administration, setup, planning, strategy, and early execution. CodePath’s fundraising revenue has increased 500% year over year. You will need to hit the ground running by managing a red-hot pipeline of inbound corporate and private funders and helping us maintain relationships with national and global education influencers. You will also create and manage an annual development strategy that complements our strong earned income revenue streams.
Working with the CEO, you will need to know how to get the most out of our incredible board and champions who largely come from the world’s most recognizable tech companies.
We are committed to professional growth and fulfillment at work. Benefits include:
We are individuals from a multitude of backgrounds, experiences, and unlikely stories, all connected by a single dream: a world in which regardless of background, socioeconomic status, gender or race all people have pathways to reach their full potential.
With a staff and board that cares deeply cares about diversity and equity, we believe that diverse perspectives and backgrounds create a richer work environment and enhance our ability to pursue our mission.
