Program Manager – Special Projects of National Significance

AIDS United
Position Description: 

AIDS United in DC is hiring a Program Manager – Special Projects of National Significance (remote-friendly). The position is full-time, can be located in DC, and (once AU returns to in-person work) in a standard, white-collar office environment. Note, however, that about half of AU’s staff is permanently remote and a large portion of local staff are expected to continue working from home whenever we return to an office environment. So you do not need to be located in the DC area to apply. We have a majority BIPOC and LGBTQ staff, four of us are part of the trans community, and many of our younger staff (and very-middle-aged me) use they/them/theirs as our pronouns. We’re also a really casual job environment when in-person, with many of us wearing jeans daily.  If you’d like any more information that’s not here or in the link to the job listing, please feel free to reach out to me at swyss [at] with any questions I could answer. Thank you! 


Applicants must have a minimum of four years program and/or grants management experience with programs reaching and engaging people living with and affected by HIV and specific experience in one or more of the focus areas of the initiatives. The position requires strong writing, communication, and negotiation abilities. Must be able to work in a fast-paced, changing, remote environment, with the demonstrated ability to work independently and as a member of a team. Ability to build rapport and credibility quickly with people at all levels, detail-oriented with exceptional project and time management skills, familiarity with grants management including- meeting deliverables; monitoring work plan objectives; oversight of subcontracts; and familiarity with webinar and/or multimedia platforms supportive of learning communities. Proficiency in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint is critical. Experience with web-based grants management systems is preferred.
