Pete for America is run by a growing, well-organized, and motivated team, backed by volunteers and supporters across the country. We're searching for hard-working and kind people to join us. We are committed to radical transparency and fairness, and are steadfast in our work to share Pete's vision with the country. We don't stand for harassment or discrimination of any kind.

Pete is a different type of candidate, and we are a different kind of team. Our goals require collaboration across all departments and our structure facilitates that.

You might be a good fit if you:

  • Have 3+ cycles of campaign leadership experience, experience in Iowa preferred but not required
  • Truly value a diversity of experiences and voices, you know it positively impacts outcomes, and you can point to times you've demonstrated this personally and professionally
  • Never let a project go unfinished and can take something from inception to completion
  • Work well under pressure, can prioritize ruthlessly and can maintain confidentiality in all that you do
  • Are a driven problem solver who simply gets things done
  • Value timeliness and understand the importance of capitalizing on a news cycle - no matter the time of day
  • Enjoy working in a fast-paced environment
