The role

We are recruiting 1-2 new members to our Board of Directors in 2024. These individuals will serve as stewards of our mission, and support our organization’s senior leadership as we continue our growth and evolution. Note: This is an unpaid position, members of our Board of Directors serve in a volunteer capacity.

The Superbloom Board of Directors is made up of experts in the public interest technology space who apply a critical lens to technology, and believe that design is a lever for changing who technology serves. We are recruiting new members as part of a Board expansion effort, and in anticipation of Sara “Scout” Sinclair Brody’s departure at the end of her third and final term. New members will serve a two-year term, with the opportunity to be re-elected for two more terms to a maximum of six consecutive years’ service.

The Superbloom Board works in a voluntary, active advisory capacity. It advises our organization to drive impact against our strategic goals, and have the fiduciary responsibility to ensure our finances can support the work that we do and that we are in compliance with our legal obligations. Please see our Board Development Criteria below for more information on the qualities we’re looking for in potential nominees as well as expectations and responsibilities. We welcome expressions of interest via this form; for full consideration. Please submit as soon as possible, as we will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis.

About us

Superbloom, previously known as Simply Secure, leverages design as a transformative practice to shift power in the tech ecosystem. We apply a holistic approach and view design as an intervention opportunity to center people and their needs. Our vision is a world where everyone has the knowledge, network, and digital tools needed to enrich their lives. Launched in 2014, Superbloom is a US 501(c)3 nonprofit design and research organization, leveraging practices from human rights, systems thinking, service design and threat modeling to help teams design technology and services that center and protect communities’ most vulnerable needs. Since 2020, we have been piloting fiscal sponsorship as a leadership development and support program, incubating emerging efforts that align with our mission.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and this opportunity closes on August 9th, 2024. Reach out to [email protected] with any questions.

Superbloom is an equal opportunity employer. We believe that systemic bad behaviors disproportionately hurt the most marginalized people in society — including people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ people. We believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities. 

We thank all applicants for their interest; however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
