Who are we?

We started 80,000 Hours because we couldn’t find any sources of advice on how to do good with our own working lives. Since then, we’ve been on a mission to figure out how best to choose a career with high social impact.

About us

How come this is all free?

We’re an independent nonprofit funded by individual donors. They give to us so that we can help people like you have a greater impact. We don’t accept any corporate sponsorship or advertising fees.
