Full-Time National Online Community Organizer

RepresentUs – Posted by pferguson Anywhere

Job Description

About RepresentUs

RepresentUs is the nation’s leading right-left anti-corruption organization. We bring together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to secure crucial victories that are defending our Republic and fixing America’s corrupt political system.

But what it means for you, potential coworker, is that you feel what we feel when you wake up every day: a strong sense of purpose that binds you to the spirit of this nation, and an overwhelming sense that you should do something about it. And you want to work with people who feel the same.

RepresentUs is a carefully curated mix of seasoned political campaigners, policy wonks, advertising experts, designers, and engineers. We’re not a startup, but we’ve got startup DNA: we’re nimble, constantly learning and iterating, and we push ourselves to push the envelope—to ignore “industry standards” and set a new standard.

We’re looking for enthusiastic new minds to help us grow, move faster, and achieve more. We believe our political system should reflect the varied voices of our nation, and so should our team. That’s why we’re an Equal Opportunity Employer; people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

In 2018, we helped pass 23 anti-corruption measures—a historic year for the movement.

We’re headquartered in Northampton, MA and also have staff around the country. Come win with us!

About The Role 

Under the direction of the National Mobilization Director, the National Online Community Organizer will help build the digital infrastructure for high-impact anti-corruption campaigns across the country. 

This role is responsible for managing RepresentUs’ strategy to recruit and engage coalitions, supporters and volunteers in online communities. In this role, the organizer will build an online movement and network of volunteers to tell the story of our campaigns across the country. This is a unique opportunity for someone who loves interacting with people and has a sharp sense for what gets people talking. Location is flexible, and we currently allow staff to work from home during COVID-19 for safety.

What You’ll Be Doing

– Identifying, recruiting and activating new volunteer supporters from RepresentUs’s social media platforms such as, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Medium; 

– Working in conjunction with the National Mobilization Director to set and define goals and metrics for success for the online community program;

– Developing and managing a calendar of content, events, activities, and programming for volunteer and supporter communities to amplify the message of the RepresentUs across online platforms;

– Developing and moderating vibrant online groups of supporters designed for community members to share organizing resources and execute upon the overall plan;

– Overseeing the development of guides, training materials, volunteer roles, and strategies to help shape the overall online community organizing program.

– Responding to supporter comments and questions in a timely and helpful manner;

– Executing other responsibilities and tasks as needed.

Skills and Experience

– Demonstrated digital organizing experience.  

– Experience managing a social media program on a political campaign or organization is preferred;

– Ability to build and maintain relationships – and foster relationships among others – both online and offline;

– Experience with managing volunteers and volunteer leadership development;

– Strong proficiency with social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, and Medium, and detailed knowledge of their portfolio of products. 

– Strong in-person communication and writing skills;

– Commitment to working beyond partisanship is required. Previous experience working with cross-partisan coalitions is preferred – candidates without this experience will be considered if they can speak to how they would approach working across the aisle. 

– Passion for RepresentUs’ mission to make America work for everyone, not just the powerful and well-connected;

– This is a remote position, and candidates must have consistent access to reliable internet and phone.

Compensation and Benefits

We’re committed to bringing in top talent from all sectors. Accordingly, we offer competitive salaries and pretty awesome benefits, including health and dental insurance, a health reimbursement account, wellness perks, a dependent care account, a health concierge benefit, a $1,500 professional development stipend, and a retirement benefit. Plus disability and life insurance.

Oh, and we have this wild idea that we’ll do better work if we have time to see our friends and families, so we get four weeks of paid vacation a year, plus personal and sick time.

The annual salary range for the National Online Community organizer position is $40,000-$50,000.

To Apply

Please provide a resume and cover letter.  

No phone calls please.
