Future Laboratories
Talent Manager


Overview of Future Laboratories

Future Laboratories will be society’s R&D department. Just as Bell Labs came to life a century ago to pursue the technical moonshots of their times, Future Labs exists to pursue moonshots for humanity. But what excites us most is how we do that—our core technology and, in our view, the most inspiring invention even in the digital age: you. People. And not just individuals, but breakthrough teams made up of pragmatic idealists across every imaginable discipline who aren’t afraid to envision a new future and bring it to life.

Leveraging the power of collective genius, Future Laboratories identifies the world’s biggest problems, conducting original diagnostic work on society; turns those problems into massive opportunities in the form of products, policies, campaigns, concepts, or brand-new categories; and then builds solutions until they are scaled. Already, we are working on projects across the realms of the future of human potential, the future of America, the future of capitalism, and the future of social change itself. As more inspiring visionaries join our team, each exploration and project takes on new life, since people—above all—are the fuel for our problem-solving engine.

Our mission is to make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time, and while we will celebrate progress along the way, nothing less will suffice over the long run. Our society has been settling for “good enough” for too long. But more than that—given advances in technology, more human willpower than ever before, and momentum around thinking anew about how to truly change the world—radical improvement is more possible than ever before.

Future Laboratories grew out of The Future Project, one of the fastest-growing nonprofits in America, dedicated to unleashing the possibility and power of young people to change the world. Future Laboratories is practicing what The Future Project preaches—that there is no more important act in life than finding your passion and unique gifts and channeling these to build breakthrough solutions with others… not as a one-time action but as a lifelong practice.

As big as our dreams are, we believe in moving in sequence, step by step, and are laying the foundation for our 100-year plan. We were officially underway in mid-2017 and already have a staff of more than a dozen leaders across several marquee projects and funding for our first two years. We also are proud to be partnered with some of the most inspired institutions and philanthropists in the world. And we’re most excited that we’re just getting started (and, in so many ways, always will be).

About the role - Talent Manager

Future Laboratories has the will and the resources to invest in mastering the science and art of team building, and we are seeking a Talent Manager to lead the charge in cultivating Future Laboratories’ remarkable team.

As Talent Manager, you will be a key pillar of our Talent Team and an important contributor to our People Operations division -- a cross-functional team composed of Talent & Operations team members dedicated to designing Future Laboratories as a great place to work. You will serve as a key thought-partner to our executive team and department leads in designing and building a world-class organization, collaborating with these leaders to craft organizational charts, role scopes, recruitment and selection models, and more. You will be a manager of both people and projects, overseeing searches from end to end as well as leveraging the support of Talent Associates to ensure that all people-related work is done with excellence. And you will be an important architect and enforcer of Future Laboratories’ talent brand, serving as a primary point of contact to candidates, recruiting partners (e.g. academic institutions, search firms), and via other external communications channels.

As our Talent Manager, you excel at management of both people and projects and are eager to oversee searches, spearhead special projects, and support hiring managers alike. You are craving the opportunity to deepen your talent acquisition experience and take ownership over multiple facets of People Operations work as a means of building your portfolio en route to becoming a leader in the field. Ideally, you have 3+ years of full-time experience in talent acquisition, people operations, or related disciplines -- preferably in a related field (such as social enterprise) or a comparable environment (such as a creative agency) -- and you have been responsible for making a high number of hires previously. Most importantly, you are excited by the prospect of building out the Talent function of a young but growing organization and are eager to commit yourself to this endeavor of building a company from the ground up for at least the next 3 years.
