Join our team
Are you looking to join a group of passionate change agents working to advance a society where everyone thrives?
We currently have two open positions in either our Portland, OR office or in our Washington, D.C. office. Click below for more information and to apply.
Metropolitan Group is always looking for people who are passionately committed to creating a more just and sustainable world through work at the intersection of social justice, public health and environment. With offices in Washington, D.C.; Portland; San Francisco; and Mexico City, we offer opportunities at all levels.
We’re all about creating a team and culture where everyone can innovate, create impact, be themselves, have fun, do top-notch work and be 100% focused on creating a more just and sustainable world.
If you are energized in an environment of innovators, thought leaders, advocates and activists, we think this could be the place for you. If you are passionate about writing, narrative, creative expression, digging deep to understand cultural context, and bring a growth mindset to your work, you will be in good company. If you geek out on data and research and take creative leaps, you will join a community that values the left and the right brain, and that celebrates analytical and abstract thinking. Members of our team enjoy good coffee and wine, secret hiking trails, performing in musicals, sharing family recipes and talking about the latest episode of “Lovecraft Country.” We’re always looking to add more hobbies and interests to our team!
Happy hours and coffee chats are the norm in our offices (pre-COVID and now via Zoom). We also host an annual retreat with our entire team, summer picnics, fitness classes, the occasional Pizza Fridays and Office Olympics. We strive to create a supportive community so that MG’ers can form relationships, make time for joy, unlock creativity and celebrate being who we are as people.
We’re team-oriented and thrive in cross collaboration among focus areas, practice areas, offices, clients and practices to best deliver on projects and learn from one another. Building relationships is important to our culture, and we value trust, respect and transparency as a key foundation to long-term success as an organization.
We have designed our offices to be collaborative and engaging spaces with abundant natural light, plenty of spaces for co-creation and for quiet work, easy access to transit, and pedestrian- and bike-friendly locations. We prioritize sustainable design, healthy buildings and accessibility for the places we work.
Our headquarters office in Portland, Oregon—The Public Will Building—is a national historic landmark and LEED Silver designated building where we have an entire floor of community convening and collaboration space for hosting workshops, planning sessions, events and other gatherings to support community-based organizations and advance social change.
