I’m Vaidehi. I’m the Product Manager at Momentum, currently based in the Bay Area. I work on meta operations & community building projects for the effective altruism movement (like Pineapple Operations), and have advised community builders in India and Singapore.
I made this website so it’s easy to find projects I’m working on. This website is a work in progress - please contact me if something is confusing or wrong!🙂
💼Projects & Opportunities
The following is a list of opportunities that I am directly involved in in some capacity and that I’m pretty excited about.
Logistics: Summer 2022, flexible start and end dates. The project should take about 3 months end-to-end but about 1 month of full-time work total.
Help research and write a series of career advice posts on how someone in a big tech company can have an impact! Similar to this post created by the EACN (and me)
EA Career Advice on Management Consulting - EA Forum
Management consulting has been discussed as a EA career option for many years, but opinions on the relative impactfulness have changed over time. We think that consulting can be a promising path for some people, but there can be a lack of information on exactly what is possible with different career paths.
If you’re interested, contact me or Training for Good!
I have a list of community building projects I think are pretty promising but not ready for public consumption, reach out and I’m happy to share the list.
Things I’m currently excited by and exploring

- Incorporating epistemics and better thinking into outreach programs - send me activity ideas!
- EA movement building in India
- Career mentorship for people trying to reduce x-risk
