Job Description

About Builders Vision

Builders Vision (BV) is a family office dedicated to promoting a humane and healthy planet.  Builders Vision includes a range of philanthropic and impact investing capabilities to support, seed and scale sustainable agriculture, food systems, renewable energy, ocean health, animal welfare, and the arts. Today it encompasses a family foundation (Builders Initiative), a venture and growth equity group (Builders Private Capital and S2G Ventures), and an asset management team (Builders Asset Management).  We are guided collectively by the belief that markets can and should benefit society and the environment and that the most successful businesses in the future will be those that are purpose-driven.


Our vision is “a humane and healthy planet,” which we relentlessly pursue and advance through our mission, “shifting markets and minds for good.”

Diversity, equity, inclusion and justice are at the core of our mission to shift markets and minds for good.  We believe the change we want to see toward a humane and healthy planet starts with us.  We understand that diversity, equity, inclusion and justice are long-term commitments, and while we aspire to be a catalyst for change, our journey starts from within.  We are committed to learning from others and doing the work to become a more diverse, equitable, inclusive and just organization, and will seek to promote those same values in the world around us.  We know that a diverse workforce allows everyone to see problems in more nuanced ways, creating the thought leadership needed to achieve the organization’s mission.  We actively seek to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool.  We are an equal opportunity employer, and we welcome people from all experiences, abilities, and perspectives to apply.

The family office relies upon many shared services provided by a central office, Walton Enterprises, Inc. (WEI), with locations in Bentonville, AR, Denver, CO and Washington, DC.  WEI serves the needs of the broader Walton family and works in partnership and collaboration with family offices of individual family members, including Builders Vision.
