Job Description

Schmidt Futures is a philanthropic initiative, founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt, that bets early on exceptional people making the world better.  We knit talent into networks, bet on the most promising ideas through diverse forms of competition and support, and equip people to scale through partners and modern tools. To realize this vision, Schmidt Futures uses a broad set of tools — including gifts, grants, investments, and startup activity — for charitable, educational, and commercial efforts with a public purpose. Our initiative brings together the efforts of various charitable and non-charitable entities to improve our potential impact by making diverse types of capital available to the efforts we support. The Program: In the summer of 2023, we will welcome a cohort of exceptional, mission-driven Summer Analysts whose passion is to make the world a better place. These students will be juniors entering their senior year of college, with an expected graduation of December 2022-June 2023. Throughout the 10 paid weeks of the program, the Summer Analysts will be provided with mentorship from Schmidt Futures employees, on the job training, and a strong community through programming. This program is hybrid, and will require office attendance 3 days a week.  Over the course of the summer, you will have the opportunity to do meaningful work with the potential for broad impact in our New York City office. In this highly visible role, you’ll be matched to one of Schmidt Futures’ programs, where you will navigate ambiguity and analyze real world problems using exceptional quantitative skills and judgment to produce well formulated insights and ideas. You will work along leadership that has experience across many sectors and the work is oriented that way. Your efforts will help inform the creation of processes, instill operational best practices and help Schmidt Futures scale.  Summer Analysts are often hired with the intention that your development makes you an invaluable member of the Schmidt Futures network while you are with our organization and beyond. If you are someone that loves a fast pace, working on lean teams and using your analytical skill set to solve critical problems, this role has the potential to be a great match. Summer Analysts are a critical part of the team, working directly with other members of Schmidt Futures to perform implementation support and analysis relevant to: - Development of new programs, sector research, program design, human capital deployment, and management. - Existing programs and individual gifts, grants, or investments either underway or completed. - Schmidt Futures’ cross-portfolio operations in strategy, budget, organizational design, implementation, and talent management.
