Full-Time

Think Rubix is a social innovation consultancy. We help entrepreneurs, leaders, and decision-makers harness the transformative power of culture. 

What is Social Innovation

Social Innovation is organizing businesses, nonprofits, and governments to address complex social challenges at their roots in order to create systems of equity and improve the quality of culture.

How Does TR Work?

Think Rubix is a social innovation consultancy. We work with nonprofits, businesses, and governments to create collaborative solutions to systemic inequity. We advance authentic storytelling, policy-making, and political strategies. We engage in systems change to better culture. We organize people.

At its core, Think Rubix practices change. Change management. Systems change. Culture Change. To construct changemaking strategies, Think Rubix uses a suite of tools housed across three interdisciplinary studios: the Engagement studio; the Equity Innovation studio; and the Storytelling studio. We’re built for the impossible. We make problem-solving simple.

Think Rubix is hiring an experienced Public Relations Associate to join its Engagement Studio. 

Our Engagement Studio organizes people with a collaborative and inclusive approach to break down institutional silos and leverage public and private resources. As changemakers, we address complex, systemic challenges at their roots to yield more equitable systems.

We view engagement with an expansive view: people as both voters and changemakers. We leverage a diversity of thought, skills, and experience to create innovative solutions to modern social problems.

Our work includes digital organizing, political strategy, community activation, fundraising, training and development. The engagement studio is led by nationally recognized political strategists and operatives.
