Data and Program Associate Pacific Community Ventures
Oakland, CA
Job Function: Administrative/Operations/IT
Posted: November 20, 2018

Background:

Pacific Community Ventures envisions a world of thriving communities where everyone has a fair shake. Our mission is to invest in small businesses, create good jobs for working people, and make markets work for social good. We achieve our mission through a combination of fair lending, free mentorship, skilled volunteerism, impact investing consulting services, and field-building research. Pacific Community Ventures has two primary programs that strengthen small businesses located in and/or hiring from underinvested areas.

Our Small Business “Loans + Advice” fund provides affordable small business loans to bridge the “missing middle” between startup capital and financing from banks. Our loans are often used to secure or expand a space, purchase equipment, or to increase inventory to meet demand. We don’t require a minimum credit score, and specialize in working with small business owners who’ve had a hard time accessing capital, like female entrepreneurs, immigrant entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs of color, and borrowers that may have been turned down for SBA or traditional bank loans.

Our Small Business Advising program connects small business owners with expert advisors who help them meet their challenge and seize new opportunities. We put volunteerism to work for local communities by managing a national network of seasoned entrepreneurs, skilled professionals, and senior leaders from major banks, consulting firms, and bigger companies who want to use their hard-earned business knowhow to create more opportunity in our communities.

Position Summary:

We are seeking a Program Associate to join our team as part of our innovative small business services team. One of our key differentiators is our ability to collect and report data as well as success stories to funders, partners and clients.

PCV’s Business Advising program and Loan Fund both continue to scale and increase the participant experience. We work with business owners and volunteer advisors across America, and partners like Super Bowl, Capital One, Charles Schwab, eBay, PayPal and more to deliver on our brand promise. We combine technology and high touch service, leveraging our advanced matching algorithm and SaaS platform along with personal interactions to achieve our mission. 2018 is on pace to become another record year in terms of growth and participant satisfaction, and we are looking to continue building on that success in 2019 and beyond.
