The Public Interest Network is hiring smart, talented people to join our team. Our work is driven by major questions about how we organize our lives. How do we make sure the next generation has clean air, clean water and a livable climate? How do we transform our energy and transportation systems to meet the needs of today, not the last century? How do we grow and raise our food in ways that leave both people and our environment healthier?
We need smart solutions to these and other big problems. Our researchers and advocates have come up with dozens of them. But having good ideas isn’t enough. We have to find ways to cut through the noise in today’s politics and win over decision-makers, opinion leaders and the public.
The Public Interest Network is a group of organizations committed to a shared vision of a better world, a set of core values and a strategic approach to change. Over the past 45 years, our coordinated approach has won hundreds of victories. But there's more to do. That's why we're hiring.
