It takes a lot of dedicated people to end animal suffering! Both PETA and the PETA Foundation are looking for smart, compassionate, hard-working people to join our teams, and you might have just the skills we need. Whether you're up for stripping down for a theater-style street demo or are more comfortable keeping the whole project on budget, there might just be a place for you. The positions require a variety of skills and backgrounds. Take a look at the open positions to see if you have what it takes to join the fight to end animal abuse. If you don't see anything right now, check back often—things are always changing around here.
You've probably heard of PETA by now since it's the largest animal rights organization in the world, but you might not know about the PETA Foundation. In short, it's the organization that helps PETA run. Departments like IT, Development, and Interactive Media are all part of the PETA Foundation. PETA and the PETA Foundation are two separate organizations, but we work very closely together, and one couldn't exist without the other.

The first thing you'll need to do is pick the one and only position for which you are most qualified (you can click on the location to see the whole list of openings in that area). Sometimes we are not picky about where you work from—these positions are located under "Telecommuting Opportunities." Don't worry, we're very diligent about keeping our site up to date; if there is a position open with either organization, it's listed here.
Once you select a position, you'll be directed to an online form where you’ll have an opportunity to explain a little bit more about your skills and why working for PETA or the PETA Foundation is so important to you. This section can take 30 minutes to complete, and there is no way to save your information during the process, so make sure you've set aside some time for this.
The final step in the online application is attaching your résumé. It's important for it to be up to date and relevant to the position for which you're applying. Applications without résumés will not be considered.
Since we want to ensure the best fit, we always compare an applicant's skill set against all open positions—because of this, duplicate or unsolicited résumés will not be considered for employment.
There are no closing dates on positions with either organization; they are open until the very best person is found.
