A newly-created role, the Director of Operations, will be vital to organizational operations as the organization continues to grow. The Director of Operations will work closely with TechEquity’s COO across a portfolio of ongoing responsibilities and one-off projects spanning organizational administration, initiatives, and functions.

Required Skills and Qualifications:

  • Demonstrated familiarity with administrative workflows and literacy in non-profit operations
  • Ability to craft effective presentations, trainings, and correspondence
