About Anthropic

Anthropic is an AI safety and research company that’s working to build reliable, interpretable, and steerable AI systems. We want AI to be safe and beneficial for our customers and for society as a whole. Our interdisciplinary team has experience across ML, physics, policy, business and product.


  • Drive execution of multiple simultaneous, cross-functional projects and/or programs.
  • Lead and manage strategic planning sessions and cross-functional prioritization.
  • Lead program status reviews and prepare regular stakeholder and executive communications.
  • Effectively set timelines and manage cross-functional project teams to deadlines through the proactive management of blockers, scope, shifting priorities, and risks.
  • Interface with a variety of technical and non-technical stakeholders across Anthropic.
  • Partner with Engineering Managers and other Technical Program Managers to improve the operational efficiency needs within teams.
  • Effectively manage change, shift gears comfortably, decide and act without having the total picture, and handle risk and uncertainty.

You may be a good fit if you:

  • Have experience driving cross-functional projects, building longer-running programs, and interfacing with technical and non-technical stakeholders.
  • Have experience executing technical programs that require systems and engineering-level knowledge.
  • Have a deep interest in and/or a willingness to learn about cybersecurity or regulatory compliance.
  • Have experience reporting on complex programs through data-driven benchmarks, including writing SQL queries.
  • Have strong interpersonal skills that enable you to influence without authority, build cross-organizational support, cooperation and action around security initiatives, policies and procedures.
  • Have a track record for being able to successfully organize, implement and manage complex programs and projects.
  • Are used to working through trade-offs, balancing competing priorities, and having your mind changed.

Strong candidates may also:

  • Have past experience as an engineer or similar technical role.
  • Have 8 or more years of experience in Technical Program Management or similar technical role.
  • Have past experience building a centralized Project Management Office (PMO).

Representative Projects:

  • Driving efforts around risk management, product security, and other areas that improve the security of Anthropic.

Annual Salary (USD)

  • The expected salary range for this position is $320,000 - $405,000


Location-based hybrid policy: Currently, we expect all staff to be in our office at least 25% of the time.

Deadline to apply: None. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

US visa sponsorship: We do sponsor visas! However, we aren't able to successfully sponsor visas for every role and every candidate; operations roles are especially difficult to support. But if we make you an offer, we will make every effort to get you into the United States, and we retain an immigration lawyer to help with this.

We encourage you to apply even if you do not believe you meet every single qualification. Not all strong candidates will meet every single qualification as listed. Research shows that people who identify as being from underrepresented groups are more prone to experiencing imposter syndrome and doubting the strength of their candidacy, so we urge you not to exclude yourself prematurely and to submit an application if you're interested in this work. We think AI systems like the ones we're building have enormous social and ethical implications. We think this makes representation even more important, and we strive to include a range of diverse perspectives on our team.
