The Senior Operations Manager will lead the design, iteration, and maintenance of our organizational and operational systems, policies and processes to ensure our entire team can execute our mission smoothly. We are a fast growing start-up fund and this role will help prepare our operations for continued growth while ensuring alignment to our values.

The Senior Operations Manager will work closely with our co-CEOs to improve existing systems, create new, human-centered, and equity-minded operational systems, and build an organizational culture that effectively delivers our mission, takes care of our people, and innovates beyond typical non-profit operations. The ideal candidate will have strong systems and operational chops, high emotional intelligence with a knack for collaborative design, and share our passion for creating a new type of non-profit organizational culture that honors humans, prioritizes collective care, and resists “grind culture.”

We are in the midst of raising $10M by EOY 2023, with a larger goal of driving $50M+ in catalytic resources to African founders via a new fund by 2030. Aside from managing these innovative funding vehicles, we want to help the entire philanthropic ecosystem center equity and shift power and resources to African innovators. We are a nimble start-up on a mission to live out our values in every aspect of our work. The Senior Operations Manager will have a unique opportunity to build organizational systems, policies and processes that push the boundaries of how operations can look when centering the experience of our partners and putting people first.

African Visionary Fund is an equal opportunity employer.
