Mobilizing a worldwide movement from Oakland, California

We’re leading the charge toward sustainable development and corporate social responsibility by forming fair and honest partnerships across the globe. We believe in community, we’re excited about change, and we hire bright, talented change makers who share our vision.

Founded in 1998, Fair Trade USA is a nonprofit organization and the leading certifier of fair trade products in North America. We’re a four time winner of Fast Company’s "Social Capitalist of the Year" award and the prestigious Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, and have been recognized as a leading social venture by the Clinton Global Initiative, Ashoka, the Klaus Schwab Foundation, and the World Economic Forum.

We offer base salaries and job benefits that are competitive with other non-profits, including a generous time off and sabbatical package. Qualified job applicants are considered for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, ancestry, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, legally protected medical condition or disability.
