All of our staff have unique talents that contribute to our growing bench of climate adaptation projects. We love to mentor newly minted or current graduate students through our internship programs. Occasionally, we may also have a need for a full-time hire as our firm grows. Open internships and positions are noted below. If you don't see anything listed, we may not have anything open right now.     

Administrative and Marketing Assistant
(Part Time Flexible Hours)

We are looking for someone to work closely with our CEO, Kris May, to keep Pathways humming along smoothly. 


Our ideal candidate would be:

  • Passionate about climate change and helping communities be more resilient

  • Entry- to mid-level in experience

  • Outgoing and professional

  • Organized with attention to detail and time management skills

  • An excellent and oral and written communicator 

  • Able to work independently and within a group environment 

  • Fun -- we pride ourselves on maintaining a fun and collaborative work environment even though we are all currently working remotely

We are looking for support across the following aspects of our day-to-day work:

  • Experience with the full Microsoft 365 platform and MS Teams environment

  • Project management (assistance with tracking budgets and schedules against contract terms)

  • Marketing (proposal writing, press releases, social media, quals packages) 

  • Technical editing (ability to proofread and edit technical writing)

  • Graphics support, with an emphasis on the Adobe Creative suite of applications

  • And many more tasks -- we welcome both creative and practical ideas that will help our team be more efficient

  • Legally entitled to work in the U.S.

During the global pandemic, 100 percent of our staff have been working from home. We are currently beginning our transition back to the office using a hybrid (in person and remote) approach. We have always encouraged staff to work from home when needed. At Pathways, work-life balance is important and not just an abstract idea. We hire amazing high-ability staff and we trust them to get their work done - in the office, at home, or on the road. 

​Pathways is an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications from anyone who meets our qualifications. However, all applicants must reside in the Bay Area and be legally able to work in the U.S. Relocation assistance is not available.

​We are a very small, research-based firm with a team of staff that are very passionate and committed to helping communities mitigate and adapt to climate change. If you can see yourself as part of our team, please send your resume to us today!
