The Livestrong Foundation is an Equal Opportunity Employer and we take pride in our dynamic and innovative results-oriented workplace. We are a small team that makes a big impact, and we offer competitive benefits including fully insured medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance, plus a 401k plan with matching.
We have been recognized as an employer of choice by Outside Magazine, The Nonprofit Times, and the Austin Business Journal. The Austin Business Journal has also honored us as one of Austin’s healthiest employers, we are accredited as a CEO Cancer Gold Standard Employer, and we are proud to be a designated Texas Mother-Friendly work site and Bicycle Friendly Workplace.
We offer positions with varying levels of responsibility for the development and support of our mission. All positions are based at our headquarters in Austin, Texas, unless otherwise noted.
Cancer creates challenges, but our identities should not. While our mission statement raises a question, one thing is certain: we believe each of us offers unique contributions that start with our individual identities. Embracing our differences, we find greater success in providing relevant services and solutions to the cancer community. At Livestrong, we foster an inclusive culture that requires respect and appreciation for everyone.
