Job Description

At Unreasonable, we build community between entrepreneurs, institutions, and investors to profitably solve pressing global problems. We believe entrepreneurial-led businesses building rapidly scalable solutions are the greatest untapped resource for solving the most significant social and environmental challenges of our time. Every day, our team strives to give the entrepreneurs we work with an unfair advantage to succeed. We do this by connecting them with our networks of mentors, investors, business leaders, and policymakers that can help them drive impact and scale their businesses faster. Today, the over 300 CEO’s in the Unreasonable Fellowship have raised more than $7.1B in financing, generated more than $5.4B in revenue, and are measurably impacting the lives of more than 720 million individuals in nearly every country and territory worldwide. But we’re just getting started...

As we’re inching toward 50 employees, we’ve reached a critical point in our organization’s growth when the needs of the business require the experience and expertise of a seasoned People Leader.

The CPO will oversee the full life cycle of the employee experience and serve as the lead on recruiting, hiring, compensation, benefits, performance management, and professional growth. This person will join the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) of Unreasonable and bring a deep understanding of people matters and drive for cultural change. This is an exciting, multifaceted leadership role within a growing organization driven by its values and mission to re-purpose capitalism for the betterment of society and the planet.
