Who We Are

California YIMBY is California’s leading statewide housing advocacy organization dedicated to ending the housing shortage and making California an affordable place for everyone to live, work, and raise a family. California YIMBY rejects the policy and political status quo and works to realize fundamental evidence-based change to California’s housing policies, which would benefit tens of millions of people. Founded in 2017, California YIMBY has redefined the national housing debate by developing best-in-class policy, sponsoring and passing major legislation, reshaping the public narrative in favor of more homes, and building and activating a statewide YIMBY movement.

The Opportunity

California YIMBY is seeking an experienced Director of Finance and Administration who is excited to work with a passionate team and support the organization as it continues to grow. Specifically, this position will be responsible for developing and strengthening our accounting, HR, and compliance functions across our three corporate entities; California YIMBY 501(c)(4), California YIMBY Education Fund 501(c)(3), and the California YIMBY Victory Fund (PAC). The Director of Finance and Administration reports to the Chief Operating Officer and serves as a member of the leadership team.

Diversity. Equity. Inclusion.

These are not just words at California YIMBY. These values are key to furthering our mission to make California an affordable place to live, work, and raise a family. Representation matters, especially in our work to end the housing crisis. A crisis that, by design, continues to impact communities of color disproportionately. To address that historic and ongoing inequity, we are building a YIMBY movement that reflects California’s rich diversity, and we actively seek diverse candidates with broad professional and lived experience.
