Our team of dreamers and doers create an energized culture focused on impacting Michigan’s children and individual growth.

Current Openings

At the Early Childhood Investment Corporation (ECIC), we’re on a mission. We envision a future where all young children and their families in Michigan thrive. Since 2005, ECIC has worked collaboratively with partners across Michigan. As a public organization, funded by federal, state and private supporters, we have invested more than $225 million to improve the social-emotional health, economic stability, safety, physical health and school readiness of all children – focusing on investing in the earliest years. ECIC is currently experiencing high growth and is looking for dynamic leaders to join our team. ECIC services all 83 counties in Michigan. Do you have a passion for making a difference for children and families? Apply for our current openings today. 

At ECIC, much of our work centers around supporting equitable access to quality early care and education for children and families, in part by supporting child care providers. Because the diversity among child care leaders has not kept pace with the diversity of the population in their care, ECIC believes that individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences can unlock significant potential in our work across the early childhood landscape.

ECIC team members are located all over Michigan and many work remotely 100% of the time due to our flexible work arrangements and sophisticated use of cloud-based technology. These roles are Michigan-based, with the flexibility of working from home with occasional travel to Lansing office. ECIC also offers a generous benefits package including medical, vision, dental, short/long-term disability, life insurance, paid time off, and retirement of up to 7% of salary. 

ECIC’s commitment to equity, transparency and fairness: In order to promote gender and racial pay equity, ECIC transparently publishes starting salary ranges in all job postings.
