What You’ll Love About AmPhil
Mission: Everything we do is guided by our mission to strengthen civil society and we’re passionate about building strong partnerships with clients engaged in work that supports strong families, virtuous citizens, vibrant communities, durable institutions, and a flourishing nation. Our employees have the opportunity to work in a company that’s in the trenches with its clients in the service of their incredible missions, helping them refine and grow their work and achieve more.
Culture: We genuinely respect, trust, and enjoy working with our colleagues—and it shows. On any given day, you might find us engaged in healthy debate about the principles of a healthy democracy over happy hour, swapping book recommendations, or challenging one another to a salsa-making competition. We strive to model the “art of association” through our culture of vibrant communitarianism and prioritize courtesy, clarity, warmth, and humor in our interactions and decisions. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.
Growth: Our employees are given a high degree of ownership over their work and have significant freedom to execute responsibilities in line with their interests and talents. They have the opportunity to learn continually, stand out quickly, do work they’re proud of, and earn the respect and appreciation of their clients and colleagues. It’s hard work and sometimes chaotic, but exciting and rewarding.
Flexibility: We are a hybrid remote/in-person company and have been from the start. Employees have the option to work out of one of our beautiful office spaces or to work remotely. Either way, there are regular opportunities for in-person interaction. We also understand our staff have lives outside of work. We work hard and expect our colleagues to do the same, but we recognize that while a strong work ethic is supremely important, so also is maintaining a healthy life that does justice to other goods, including those of family, faith, and community.
Competitive Compensation and Benefits: We will pay competitive market rates and have a generous benefits package and holiday/PTO schedule that reflect our commitment to our employees and their families. Benefits and perks include health insurance for employees and their dependents, employer contributions to health savings accounts, a 401(k) retirement program with employer matching, paid parental leave, dependent care spending accounts, a yearly stipend for books and print publications, support for employees’ volunteer board service, and more.
