We promote a culture that is:

  • Collaborative.
  • Analytical.
  • Solutions-minded.
  • Results-oriented.
  • Innovative.
  • Diverse.

We constantly balance innovative and diverse thinking with the realities of getting things done across 26 unique countries in the region. We need people who are creative, adaptive and realistic. We need people with a sense of urgency, and with the resilience to keep moving things forward, despite challenges that may arise.

The diverse makeup of our team gives us the unique ability to address development challenges with fresh and relevant ideas.

Current and future leaders at the IDB are offered mentorship and development opportunities to help accomplish their own professional goals – and to help us all work together more effectively toward improving lives.


We don’t just talk about a work/life balance. We offer ways toward achieving it through flexible work schedules, parental leave, and other benefits that help shape a reasonable fit between life at home and at work.
