Job Posting: Opportunity Alabama- Director of Operations

Opportunity Alabama (OPAL) – a first-of-its-kind nonprofit initiative dedicated to connecting investors with investable assets in Alabama’s Opportunity Zones – is seeking a Director of Operations. The Director will be OPAL’s second-in-command, responsible for assisting in the execution of every facet of OPAL’s operational scope and managing every relationship necessary to sustain OPAL’s rapid growth. Some parts of this job – like helping communities develop strategies to transform blighted areas or building local impact funds – take vision and ingenuity. Others – like running our email marketing and managing inboxes – take attention to detail and persistence. Above all, though, we are looking for someone with the patience, flexibility, and incredible work ethic necessary to help scale an organization with a statewide footprint and a national reputation.
