About the Job
The Knowledge Systems Associate focuses on managing Bridgespan’s institutional knowledge via a SharePoint learning platform. This person is responsible for ensuring teams are adhering to Bridgespan’s knowledge management process by both sharing and accessing important insights generated from casework. The Knowledge Systems Associate must exhibit strong technical and organizational skills, along with a high interest in growing technical knowledge of SharePoint. Experience capturing content on intranets, preferably a SharePoint-based intranet, is a huge plus. The ideal applicant will be someone who can take responsibility for driving their own workstreams, and is able to balance multiple projects, prioritize tasks on a daily basis, and work well both independently and with other team members. Ideally, this person will also have a strong interest in learning more about the social sector generally and Bridgespan in particular.
