About the Team
OpenAI’s mission is to ensure that general-purpose artificial intelligence benefits all of humanity. We believe that achieving our goal requires effective engagement with public policy stakeholders and the broader community impacted by AI. Accordingly, our Public Policy team builds authentic, collaborative relationships with public officials and the broader AI policymaking community to inform and support our shared work in these domains. We ensure that insights from policymakers inform our work and - in collaboration with our colleagues and external stakeholders - seek to further regulation, industry standards, and safe and beneficial development of AI tools.

OpenAI is constantly evolving as we release industry-leading research and tools, and you'll face new challenges as the needs of the organization evolve. Day-to-day work may encompass anything from shaping strategic initiatives and policy documents to preparing our leaders for engagements with government officials to representing OpenAI in public forums.
We are looking for a self-directed and creative individual with significant experience managing relationships with both policymakers and civil society, plus a sophisticated understanding of AI-related legislative and regulatory issues and processes, particularly at the U.S. federal level.
