At Vigilant America, we believe in working with as many socially aware individuals as possible. While the hiring process is incredibly competitive, we look for a diverse range of backgrounds. We’ve found no correlation between high GPA’s, MBA’s and/or prestigious universities when it comes to determining who will have the biggest impact for the world’s poor. Our selection process focuses more on finding great individuals, with a strong work ethic and passion for righting wrongs.

The telecommute positions below work from home, but must meet weekly deadlines, attend meetings via conference call and submit regular reports.
