By joining the California Budget & Policy Center team, you’ll step into an inclusive workplace culture where we value lived experiences, learning, and growing together. Are you looking to create a more just and equitable California? Then our team of researchers, communicators, and collaborators is for you! 

We pride ourselves in working with staff to create a work-life balance and offer a competitive benefits package. Below is a sample of some of our benefits:

  • Employer-paid medical, dental, and vision
  • Family leave
  • Flexible schedules
  • Flexible spending accounts for health, dependent care, and transportation
  • Hybrid, in-person, and telework arrangements
  • Paid time off (holiday, sick, personal, vacation)
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Retirement plan (generous employer contribution after one year of service)

If you are committed to crafting policy pathways that expand economic opportunities and promote the well-being of all Californians, we hope you consider joining our team.
