What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?


Move for Hunger is a national non-profit organization that mobilizes transportation resources to reduce hunger and food waste.

We were founded in 2009 and have partnered with over 1,100 moving companies across the nation to encourage their customers to donate their food when they move. We have seen rapid expansion over the past few years within the relocation and multifamily apartment industries – with over 600,000 apartment units working with us.

In addition to rescuing food during move out, Move for Hunger also organizes thousands of food drives, fundraisers, and corporate employee engagement events. We’ve recently expanded our reach to farmers, distributors, CPG and logistics companies in an effort to recover fresh food.

Since its founding, Our team of 20+ has delivered more than 27 million pounds of food to those in need – enough to provide more than 22 million meals.

We’d love to hear from you if:

  • You have been there, done that: You have 8+ years of experience managing a team larger than 5, ideally with experience managing managers. You are a proven leader and respected manager, who holds their team accountable while creating a motivating, inclusive, and collaborative environment.
  • You are a high-achieving, self-starter: You’re naturally ambitious and have a bias towards action – identifying opportunities and running with them. You don’t settle for the status quo, work well with ambiguity, and can run a project from start to finish with little supervision. There is no such thing as an idea too big. You’re motivated not only to meet but exceed your goals and to grow Move For Hunger’s impact.
  • You can simplify the complex: You can take a really complicated problem, project, or task and easily break it down into tangible and easy to understand elements.
  • You are cool under pressure: Leading a team, working at a non-profit, and having a high-exposure role can feel like a lot of pressure. You will be most successful in this role if you don’t sweat the small stuff, or the big stuff – especially when it counts.
  • You are flexible: You’re comfortable with a number of evolving priorities, thrive in ambiguity, and are open to new ideas when opportunities present themselves.
  • You are data-informed: You are extremely curious and can both ask and answer thoughtful questions using strong analytical skills.
  • You are solutions oriented: You use all the tools at your disposal to develop creative solutions and better processes – all while being scrappy (we are both a startup and a non-profit after all).
  • You are empathetic & trustworthy: Team members feel comfortable discussing sensitive matters with you and know they can count on you to support them.
  • You are a multitasking pro: You know how to prioritize and can switch gears seamlessly without getting your feathers ruffled (or ruffling anyone else’s).
