Associate Manager/Manager , People & Culture

Bengaluru, Karnataka   |   Full Time

The Challenge:

India has become the 5th largest economy in the world, but ~360 million are “poor” (using Government metrics), and 145 million live below the poverty line. This inequity is unacceptable. About 3.4% of our annual budget or 0.28% of the income of the top 1% of our population would lift and could bring everybody above the poverty line, however, this is complex and we need the best of human intellects to be focused on solving it.

About Us:

The/Nudge Foundation exists to alleviate poverty, sustainably and scalably. We are a collective of some of India’s best leaders and entrepreneurs from across industry, academia, government and development sectors, and our work is organized across three impact streams:

  1. Centre For Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (CSDE) : exists to enable underprivileged youth to lead flourishing lives

  2. Center for Rural Development (CRD): exists to enable families to come out of extreme poverty
