We’re hiring! Join the LSA team as our Manager of Operations

With a decade of successes now under our belt, LSA is ready to take the organization’s impact to the next level and is seeking a creative, organized, collaborative, and resourceful team member to help build and refine systems, streamline and manage communications and procedures, and keep the organization operating smoothly. He/She/They will be integral in establishing a solid foundation for the growth of Living Streets Alliance.


Living Streets Alliance is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to fostering an environment that is inclusive and welcoming for diverse board and staff members with different backgrounds, identities, and lived experiences. By welcoming “diversity,” we mean that our office culture embraces differences in gender expression and identity, age, culture, ancestry, ethnicity, race, color, sexual orientation, physical ability, learning style, religion, familial status, marital status, occupation, veteran status, nationality, citizenship, socio-economic status, and the many forms of composite subjectivity and life experiences. LSA acknowledges the role transportation planning has played in creating and exacerbating racial and socioeconomic inequities and recognizes the need for centering and elevating voices that are traditionally underrepresented in transportation planning and decision-making spaces. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individuals, people from working class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ+ people.
