About Us

Mission Measurement is revolutionizing the world by helping organizations to measure and improve social outcomes. Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, governments, NGOs, and foundations. Among our innovations, we invented the Impact Genome Project to create a new generation of tools to design, benchmark and predict outcomes that solve social problems.

The Impact Genome Project is a pioneering social impact measurement tool and research initiative designed to discover what works and why in the social impact space. By creating a standard terminology and outcomes, we systematically compare programs and identify the most effective program components. We share these data and insights with policymakers, nonprofits, foundations and corporate social responsibility leaders to produce better outcomes for society.

Our Guiding Light:

  • Third Way: we are creative, we do not believe in trade-offs
  • Outcomes-driven: we believe that outcomes drive strategy, not the other way around
  • Ambidextrous: we combine art & science to solve problems and measure things that are outside the realm of today’s parameters

Mission Measurement is growing quickly, making it a dynamic, ever-changing work environment. We are seeking:

  • A Self-starter, take initiative with little direction
  • A Problem-solver, find the “third way”
  • A Do’er, “own the outcome”
  • A Creator, build IP and contribute new ideas
  • A Leader, speak your mind, be persuasive and engender confidence

Apply only if you’re both collaborative and entrepreneurial in the extreme and want to shape the future of social impact measurement and improve outcomes.

Our culture is conducive to impactful personal and professional development opportunities that allow our employees to grow.  We encourage everyone to push the boundaries of our capabilities, initiatives and thought capital to help them meet and exceed their personal and professional goals.
