ABOUT THE TEAM AND ROLE
The Lukens Company (TLC) is an award-winning full-service direct response agency that is seeking a Political Strategist to join our political practice in our Arlington, VA office. The political practice specializes in voter contact, fundraising, and issue advocacy programs for Republican political candidates, political action committees, non-profit organizations, and Republican Party committees.
The Political Strategist will help congressional candidates raise money, strengthen the membership bases of organizations fighting for free markets and limited government, come up with killer hooks for voter contact mail that moves the needle in our clients’ direction, and strategize video ads for viral distribution, sometimes all in the same day (kidding .. sort of). And you’ll be doing it all alongside the best team in politics.
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
Managing all aspects of direct mail fundraising, membership, and voter contact campaigns with an opportunity to grow into multi-channel, integrated direct marketing practices
Serving as the day-to-day contact for 3-5 political clients
Working with internal teams including graphic designers, copywriters, data processors, production managers, and more
Brainstorming creative ideas, implementing strategy, and interpreting results
WHAT WE’D LIKE TO SEE
A political junkie interested in helping Republican candidates, committees, and center-right advocacy organizations raise funds, win elections, and advance their missions. A lively wordsmith who understands the rules of grammar (and when to break them). Someone who can connect with GOP donors, inspiring immediate action and long-term loyalty. Sound like you?

We also would like to see:
A minimum of 2-4 years of experience on political campaigns or with an agency handling political clients
Reliable self-starter with demonstrated ability to manage multiple projects and think on your feet
Results-oriented “team first” attitude
Excellent organizational skills and meticulous detail-orientation
Comfortable working in a fast-paced, deadline driven environment with quick turnarounds
Strong communication skills paired with a knack for problem solving
Inclination to learn and grow professionally
Desire to work for a values-driven company that seeks to improve the world for the better
Direct response marketing, membership, fundraising, and/or finance experience is a plus!
WHAT WE OFFER
Generous PTO and holiday observances
Medical, dental, vision, life, and disability insurances
401(k) program with match
Paid parental leave
Collaborative and entrepreneurial work environment
The opportunity to be part of a smart, hardworking, dedicated, and convivial team excited about producing high quality work and delivering great results for our clients
