Technical Program Manager, Trustworthy AI

About the Team

The Trustworthy AI team works on action relevant or decision relevant research to ensure we shape A(G)I keeping societal impacts in mind and works on interventions to increase readiness. This includes work on full stack policy problems such as AI provenance, anthropomorphism of AI. We aim to translate nebulous policy problems to be technically tractable and measurable. We then use this work to inform and build interventions that increase societal readiness for increasingly intelligent systems. Our team also works on external assurances for AI (Eg. external red teaming, 3rd party verification) with an aim for increasing independent checks and forming additional layers of validation.

 About the Role

As a Technical Program Manager on the Trustworthy AI team, you will drive interdisciplinary programs in collaboration with external partners. This includes strategizing and executing on the vision for strategic research partnerships, and growing and managing our external assurance programs which include third party assessments and enabling independent academic research.

We’re looking for people who have experience running strategic academic collaborations and program management with technical and research teams. You will work with researchers/engineers both internal to OpenAI and as a part of the external community to initiate new projects, set ambitious goals and milestones, and drive execution across multiple teams. 

This role is based in San Francisco, CA. We use a hybrid work model of 3 days in the office per week and offer relocation assistance to new employees.

In this role, you will:

  • Create strategic research partnerships 
  • Proactively identify new partners for external assurances such as high quality third party evaluators and academic research labs
  • Create feedback mechanisms for translating external research into actionable product and policy recommendations 
  • Communicate progress, status and risk effectively to stakeholders internally and externally
  • Drive tool and process improvements to improve efficiency


You might thrive in this role if you: 

  • Have an understanding of AI evaluations and measurements and ability to engage with technical teams on AI evaluations 
  • Have experience working with and managing stakeholders external to an organization, especially academic researchers 
  • Can create executive summaries and synthesis of technical and social science research
