About Anthropic

Anthropic’s mission is to create reliable, interpretable, and steerable AI systems. We want AI to be safe and beneficial for our users and for society as a whole. Our team is a quickly growing group of committed researchers, engineers, policy experts, and business leaders working together to build beneficial AI systems.

About the role:

As a member of the Strategy and Operation team for Public Sector Deployments, you’ll own strategic initiatives that have a direct impact on the development and commercialization of existing and/or new products that serve public sector customers. You will collaborate closely with our product management, engineering, and go-to-market teams to help solve our most complex and ambiguous business challenges. You’ll take ownership roles across a range of business-critical efforts, bringing creative, data-driven, and market-informed value from concept to execution. This role is a great fit for someone who’s both seen excellence at scale and operated in rapidly scaling, high ambiguity teams and scope. You can seamlessly pivot back and forth high-level strategy to the nitty-gritty blocking and tackling of building, architecting systems and processes that enable our product teams to operate at peak efficiency.

You’ll do so both directly with public sector customers and through highly strategic partnerships, all while maintaining our best-in-class safety standards and overall mission objectives. The ideal candidate for this role will be passionate about crafting scaled, highly impactful, safe and beneficial artificial intelligence technologies. You should have a proven track record of working with developer users, understanding their needs, and building products they love.

Responsibilities:

  • Flex into and own a wide range of initiatives across teams and domains (product, go-to-market, strategy, and operations), doing whatever it takes to maximize and accelerate our impact
  • Work closely with product and engineering teams to focus relentlessly on delivering value and impact, orienting our efforts toward creating remarkable products and experiences for our users that advance Anthropic's mission
  • Help drive commercial success through creative market insights, strategic product planning, and effective cross-functional collaboration
  • Tackle ambiguous but critical strategic questions with structured reasoning, rigorous attention to detail, sound judgment, and clear delivery of actionable insights
  • Gather and synthesize quantitative and qualitative data into clear, actionable recommendations that inform priorities and decision-making
  • Set up, own, and build for scale new systems and processes for new launches, new teams, and the company more broadly as we grow

You might be a good fit if you have:

  • 5+ years of experience in product management, business operations, strategy, or related roles in high-performing product companies
  • A user-focused mindset, intellectual curiosity, and an unwavering commitment to Anthropic's mission of developing safe and beneficial AI
  • Strong analytical skills, and a data-driven, commercially minded approach to developing product strategies and solving problems
  • Proven ability to navigate and execute effectively amidst ambiguity, and to flex into different domains based on the business problem at hand
  • Strong project management and organizational skills to lead complex initiatives
  • Experience using data to conduct market research, competitive analysis, and synthesize product insights. Proficiency in SQL is a plus
  • The ability to convey complicated, technical, ambiguous topics in simple, jargon-less, persuasive, structured terms for direct teammates, cross-functional stakeholders, and leadership
  • Deep proven and thoughtful interest in AI systems – directly AI/ML experience is highly valued, but not required

Deadline to apply: None. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

The expected salary range for this position is:

Annual Salary:
$200,000$285,000 USD

Logistics

Location-based hybrid policy: Currently, we expect all staff to be in one of our offices at least 25% of the time. However, some roles may require more time in our offices.

US visa sponsorship: We do sponsor visas! However, we aren't able to successfully sponsor visas for every role and every candidate; operations roles are especially difficult to support. But if we make you an offer, we will make every effort to get you into the United States, and we retain an immigration lawyer to help with this.

We encourage you to apply even if you do not believe you meet every single qualification. Not all strong candidates will meet every single qualification as listed. Research shows that people who identify as being from underrepresented groups are more prone to experiencing imposter syndrome and doubting the strength of their candidacy, so we urge you not to exclude yourself prematurely and to submit an application if you're interested in this work. We think AI systems like the ones we're building have enormous social and ethical implications. We think this makes representation even more important, and we strive to include a range of diverse perspectives on our team.

Employees based outside of the UK or US will receive a different benefits package. The level of pay within the range will depend on a variety of job-related factors, including where you place on our internal performance ladders, which is based on factors including past work experience, relevant education, and performance on our interviews or in a work trial.

How we're different

We believe that the highest-impact AI research will be big science. At Anthropic we work as a single cohesive team on just a few large-scale research efforts. And we value impact — advancing our long-term goals of steerable, trustworthy AI — rather than work on smaller and more specific puzzles. We view AI research as an empirical science, which has as much in common with physics and biology as with traditional efforts in computer science. We're an extremely collaborative group, and we host frequent research discussions to ensure that we are pursuing the highest-impact work at any given time. As such, we greatly value communication skills.

The easiest way to understand our research directions is to read our recent research. This research continues many of the directions our team worked on prior to Anthropic, including: GPT-3, Circuit-Based Interpretability, Multimodal Neurons, Scaling Laws, AI & Compute, Concrete Problems in AI Safety, and Learning from Human Preferences.

Anthropic is a public benefit corporation headquartered in San Francisco. We offer competitive compensation and benefits, optional equity donation matching, generous vacation and parental leave, flexible working hours, and a lovely office space in which to collaborate with colleagues.
