  • Create and manage outgoing communication to our national volunteer audience
  • Develop, manage and implement webinars, trainings (digital and in-person) and speaker series.
  • Manage testing and segmentation, with support from digital skill lead
  • Seek out and test digital tools the Supporter Mobilization Team could/should be using

We're looking for someone who has:

  • Experience working with volunteers in a campaigning setting.
  • Demonstrated affinity for and ability to learn digital skills to engage supporters in taking action for a cause or organization
  • Strong writing skills, especially for a popular audience
  • Experience writing blast emails that spur people to take action
  • Demonstrated ability to create and analyze systems
  • Ability to think creatively and move quickly
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work collaboratively
  • Basic HTML/CSS preferred, but not required
  • Strong commitment to ensuring the organization is an equitable, diverse and inclusive space.

In addition, we need someone who can:

  • Create organized tracking documents (spreadsheets, etc.)
  • Work independently but collaboratively in a fast-paced, constantly-changing environment
  • Run trainings and conferences using web-based presentation tools
