TIYYD is seeking a new Finance Officer to help us keep our books in order! You will play a key role in our growing finance team, helping us with compliance, accounting and more. 


You are detail-oriented. You love the details and making sure they are as close to perfect as possible. You know that the small things make the big picture work.

You love numbers. Crunching numbers, recording numbers, reviewing numbers, reconciling numbers - anything to do with numbers, you are drawn to. 

You are a builder. You are ready to come into a team that is building and contribute to making the systems work.

You are collaborative. You know that your role intersects with many functions and are prepared to make sure these relationships can thrive. 



Karam House is an innovative workspace for Syrian and Turkish teens, in Istanbul and Reyhanli, Turkey, which defy traditional approaches to education for the most vulnerable in local communities. At Karam Houses, hundreds of teens learn through access to technology (maker spaces, internet, computers), expert mentorship (Syrians refugee architects and engineers), and a sophisticated design-based curriculum (developed by MIT grads) that teaches youth how to build their ideas and their community.

We think about refugees and humanitarian aid differently and so we do things differently. We believe in investing deeply in communities affected by conflict.
