AmPhil Careers

We rely on practical wisdom.

At American Philanthropic, we believe that clients are best served when they are assisted by liberally educated consultants who have the virtue of practical wisdom, diverse backgrounds, and a track record of success. If this sounds like the kind of company you’d like to join, see our job openings below. American Philanthropic is an equal opportunity employer.


Company Culture

We live what we believe and model the “art of association” through our culture of vibrant communitarianism.

We are social beings, and so we hire and gather people who genuinely like one another. You might engage your colleagues in healthy debate about the principles of a healthy democracy, extol the merits of the Oxford comma during happy hour, or find yourself challenged to a salsa-making competition.

We work hard and expect our colleagues to do the same but we recognize that while a strong work ethic is supremely important, so also is maintaining a healthy life that does justice to other goods, including those of family, faith, and community.

We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.



We offer a 401(k) matching package, health insurance for the whole family, employer contributions to your health savings account, and more. We also provide paid maternity and paternity leave when a new baby joins your family.


Generous Holiday Schedule

Need a few days off for a family vacation or extra time around the holidays? We value practical wisdom and take a non-bureaucratic approach to time off and your holiday schedule. We encourage you to take regular time off to refresh and renew, and leave it up to you to organize your time off in a way that does not jeopardize the quality of your work, the sanity of your colleagues, or the health of your client relationships.


Aesthetic Working Spaces

As Winston Churchill opined, “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” That’s why our offices are located in historic spaces that value place and beauty. We want you to bring your humanity to work, not check it at the door—that’s important for your work with our clients, and we try to make our office space conducive to that.


Flexible Work Hours/Remote Options

We understand you have a life outside of here and are flexible with work hours and support working remotely to accommodate all of life’s demands. When it comes to serving our clients and juggling a busy life, we trust you to arrange your schedule to manage all of your responsibilities while providing your clients excellent and responsive service.



Intelligent, intellectually flexible, and curious people make the best consultants. We want you to continue developing the life of the mind and your own intellectual interests—even if they relate only loosely to your specific responsibilities. To this end, we provide a yearly stipend for magazine and journal subscriptions and plenty of other learning. We also provide significant freedom to grow your skills and responsibilities in line with your interests.


Annual Retreat

Once a year, the entire company gathers together for an annual retreat. Retreats have been anywhere from Sedona, Arizona to Whitefish, Montana to Portland, Maine. We value incarnational relationships and look forward to this much-needed time for leisure and appreciation of successes. Our mission is only as strong as our community, and we work hard to keep our community strong. The annual retreat is a welcome opportunity for everyone to see not only colleagues, but friends.
