Vulcan Inc. is a nimble private company based in Seattle, Washington working to solve some of the biggest global issues. The projects and investments we pursue are inspired by the ideas of our founder Paul G. Allen and tethered to a simple principle; we use data to inform our efforts and seek out opportunities that can make a positive impact—and share what we learn.
Vulcan supports innovative approaches that can save endangered species, address climate change, improve ocean health, explore new frontiers, research how the human brain works and build sustainable communities. Brain science and basketball, community space and outer space, art and artificial intelligence—at Vulcan, we strive to answer big questions asked by our founder, and by the world. If we can understand the mysterious organ, the brain, we can pave the way towards understanding diseases like Alzheimer’s. If we can change the economics of space launches, we can change space travel and exploration. If we can get the formula right for a new kind of downtown neighborhood, it becomes a guide for the innovation centers of tomorrow.
With a local focus and a global reach, Vulcan’s programs, projects and initiatives bring together industry leaders collaborating across disciplines to discover and develop smart, data-driven solutions and create inspiring experiences that help us tackle some of the world’s toughest challenges.
As Measurement and Evaluation Officer, the candidate reports to the Director, Business Operations and is responsible for consistent and informative measurement and evaluation of Paul Allen’s philanthropic impacts, essential for accountability and learning.
