American Oversight is looking for a Web Associate to join our team. We’re a non-partisan, non-profit watchdog that uses targeted public records requests and litigation to expose evidence of corruption, abuse of power, or conflicts of interest. American Oversight’s work exposed hundreds of pages of Ukraine documents that were withheld from Congress, we prompted the discovery of Ivanka Trump’s extensive use of a private email system, and we’ve investigated and uncovered widespread conflicts of interest across the cabinet. Through our State Accountability Project, we’re investigating voter suppression in multiple states, and our team is actively tracking the federal and state response to the coronavirus pandemic.
One part web publishing expert, one part graphic designer, and one part creative storyteller, the Web Associate will be an integral part of our communications team and will help us ensure that the American Oversight website is an effective and trusted resource for journalists, investigators, and members of the public seeking information about our government accountability work.

Given the current pandemic, American Oversight’s team is working remotely for the foreseeable future.
