Open positions at Rural Innovation Strategies, Inc (RISI)

RISI is the sister organization of the Center on Rural Innovation.

  • RISI is seeking someone to manage a comprehensive human resource function for RISI and CORI, and support our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. This new role will lead the development of our people operations and cultural practices for a rapidly growing team.
  • Based in Hartland and reporting to the executive director, this role will wear many hats — scheduling meetings, making travel arrangements, aiding development efforts, and managing office operations. This position is an excellent fit for a detail-oriented problem-solver.
  • This role sits at the critical intersection of data analytics, visual design and storytelling. Our Information Designer will craft compelling data visualizations that help advance the goals of our organization and drive understanding and empathy for the communities we serve.
  • The Regional Director will lead our engagement in the deep south, serving as the point person across all of our offerings in the region — including broadband and digital economy strategy work — to help more communities in the Southeast join the Rural Innovation Network.
