The David Project believes that Israel can bring people together on campus for social change, rather than be the divisive topic it unfortunately too often is. We do this by pushing ourselves to make Israel advocacy cool and relevant for today’s college students. We are a highly innovative, fast moving, energetic and fun group of people that love what we do. Our work environment is highly collaborative and every employee is treated as a thought leader and key partner within the organization. We seek talented individuals who will embrace our mission and be able to inspire college students across the country.

We offer competitive compensation and outstanding benefits, and are committed to the highest standard of professional excellence and integrity.
