Third Sector Capital Partners



Third Sector is a nonprofit consulting firm that advises governments, community organizations, and funders on how to unlock innovation to solve pressing challenges such as economic mobility for all and the well-being of our children. Since 2011, we have helped over 40 communities across the United States implement an increasingly effective government that is more transparent with taxpayer dollars.

Together with our partners, we have transitioned hundreds of millions of dollars in public funding to programs that measurably improve lives. Our proven approach is to collaborate with our clients and stakeholders to define impact, draw actionable insights from data, and drive resources towards outcomes-oriented government. Our team of more than 40 works out of offices in San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.



We are looking for highly driven, entrepreneurial, passionate, and rigorous professionals to join our fast-paced, innovative, and growing team in San Francisco or Boston. You will lead client engagements, work closely with Managing Directors, Directors, and Associates. You will pursue business development opportunities, write proposals, and design and implement internal initiatives that drive Third Sector’s continued growth.

Your primary responsibility will be to scope, budget, and manage client engagements focused on executing new Pay-for- Success (PFS) or outcomes-oriented contracts. Engagement workstreams may include beneficiary population analysis, government funding stream identification and analysis, data access analysis, economic modeling, readiness assessments, provider analysis, and contract and funding negotiations. Teams travel to client sites on average every other month and collaborate closely with clients, data partners, and a variety of stakeholders committed to improving lives through social outcomes measurement. Most Managers lead two client engagements at a time.

Third Sector’s hiring process is rigorous and may be different from hiring practices you have encountered before. We practice “blind recruitment” as part of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion to overcome unconscious biases that emerge through traditional résumé reviews. We focus on each candidate’s demonstrated fit to preclude unconscious biases that emerge from knowledge of a candidate’s educational background, ethnicity, gender, or other attributes from influencing initial screening. In practice, this means:

We evaluate candidates primarily through exercises and cases. This approach serves a dual purpose of providing candidates with a taste our work and our recruitment team insight into whether a candidate possesses the skills and competencies that are a prerequisite to success in our firm. Our hiring process includes these steps:

  1. Short written application for initial screening.
  2. 25-minute case interview by phone to assess critical thinking skills.
  3. A written case followed by a 50-minute phone interview to assess critical thinking and client management skills.
  4. 50-minute phone interview to assess project management skills and culture fit.
  5. Reference checks (résumé submitted for the first time).
  6. Final interview with a member of Third Sector’s executive team by video conference or in person.
  7. Offer issued.

We are committed to transparency throughout this process. We understand interviewing can be stressful and aim to minimize that stress and uncertainty. To give you a sense of timing, steps two through six above typically take five to seven weeks.



Please complete the following very simple form. Use a non-affiliated email address (i.e. no .edu email addresses) Candidates are able to display interest on an on-going basis but please do so by Midnight PST on Wednesday, March 21st at the latest.
