Our Recruiting Philosophy

Americares recruiting philosophy is founded in three core beliefs: that recruiting should be fair, transparent, and accountable.

We actively work to understand and build systems that reduce our bias, so all candidates have a fair and equitable opportunity to join our team. 

We provide transparency, striving to ensure that candidates all have a positive experience throughout the recruitment process.  

We hold ourselves accountable for the experiences of our staff, partners, and beneficiaries by bringing highly qualified people on to our team to achieve our mission and enable our high performing culture. 

Our entire talent acquisition process is informed by this philosophy, and we’d love to share more or answer any questions during the interview process!

U.S. Compensation and Benefits

Dear Global Candidates:

We’re sorry that this is currently so U.S.-centric. We are working towards this globally and encourage you to connect directly with your recruiter or email us at if you have questions.


Like our recruiting philosophy, our compensation philosophy is grounded in three core beliefs: that we are competitive, equitable, and transparent.

We post salary ranges for all U.S. based positions, and in cases where a role is available to markets outside of the U.S., the salary offer will be aligned with the specific market. We avoid negotiation within the ranges to create equity across our team, because we know that salary negotiations lead to poorer outcomes for individuals from non-dominant groups and underrepresented communities.

We construct our salaries in such a way that staff can move through the range as they grow within their level. As such, most candidates will start within a specified new hire range. This range will be posted on the job description. We use the feedback and evaluations from our structured, competency-based interviews to inform where candidates will fall within the range, and we are always available to answer questions about our approach.


Americares is a global organization, and as such, our benefits packages vary by location. Below is information about our U.S. based benefits package, and we look forward to providing more information regarding our global benefits here in the future.

You can find more specific information about the benefits offered for each role in the individual posting or by connecting with your recruiter.

In the U.S., we offer:

  • Fifteen (15) vacation days, six (6) personal days, and seven (7) sick days per year – with increases beginning after five (5) years of service
  • Approximately fifteen (15) office holidays per year, plus a paid winter break
  • Access to medical, dental, and vision insurance through Aetna, with 97% of premium cost paid by Americares. Our insurance plans are inclusive of same sex partnerships and gender affirming care.
  • Paid parental leave
  • A 401k retirement savings plans with 6% matching
  • Life and long-term disability insurance provided at no cost
  • Access to an employee assistance program and legal shield
