With 189 member countries, we work with public and private sector partners, investing in groundbreaking projects and using data, research, and technology to develop solutions to the most urgent global challenges.
The World Bank Archives (ITSAR) protects the institutional memory of the World Bank and provides staff and the global community with access to relevant information and services to foster transparency and accountability and reflect history to enable effective delivery of development solutions.

We are a diverse and inclusive team that solves challenges with creativity and curiosity, embraces technology to increase the impact our archival holdings can create, and brings effective information governance to the World Bank's current information assets. We provide meaningful work, an open and collaborative environment, innovative and interesting challenges to solve, and an opportunity to develop your skills while contributing to the mission of the World Bank.
