Program Manager, Investments - Stanford Impact Labs

The world’s biggest social problems are complex, multi-faceted, and pervasive. No academic center, company, or organization can solve systemic issues – such as economic inequality, inequitable access to health care and education, and racial discrimination – alone. We need leaders with different skills and experiences to come together to generate fresh insights, evidence, and action to make progress. Stanford Impact Labs (SIL) was created to help make such progress possible.


A major initiative at Stanford University, SIL invests in mission-driven teams of researchers and practitioners from government, business, nonprofit organizations, and philanthropy. These teams (we call them impact labs) work together on social problems of their choice, where practical progress is possible. With our support, these impact labs rapidly develop, test, and scale new solutions to social problems that affect millions of people worldwide. Learn more about our work at


Stanford Impact Labs (SIL) is an equal opportunity organization strongly committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. To that end, we particularly encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds to apply for open positions. 



The Program Manager, Investments will own the operations and management of Stanford Impact Labs' grantmaking process, and drive strategic initiatives across the university to increase the impact of SIL’s grantees. This role will support the Director of Investments & Accountability at a unique time of dramatic growth in the organization and our investments. Over the past year, SIL’s portfolio of investments in impact labs has doubled in size, with plans for continued growth over the next few years. The Program Manager will design and execute operational improvements to help the SIL investments team work more efficiently and effectively.
