Senior Campaigner

ParentsTogether
Washington, DC

THE PROJECT

Are you a skilled, experienced, and resourceful digital campaigner with strong writing, partnership, and project management skills who wants to take on tech companies? If so, we’re looking for you!

Tech companies are now the world’s most powerful entities and they are using their power in a way that is devastating. They track children and sell their private information to third parties; expose kids to sexual predators, extremist beliefs, and disinformation; intentionally addict them; degrade their mental health and well-being; and delay critical physical skills like hand-eye coordination – all while creating a permanent public record of personal information that can be accessed by anyone. The pandemic has meant our kids spend more time online than ever before, exacerbating all these harms.

Worst of all? Silicon Valley knows exactly what they are doing (because $$$) and they will keep doing it until millions of concerned people – working together – fight back. That’s where you come in!

We need a passionate and skilled Senior Campaigner who loves a challenge to join our campaign team.

Here’s some of the awesome stuff you’ll do:

  • Identify opportunities for strong campaigns
  • Develop campaign strategies
  • Work collaboratively with a small team to architect and execute campaigns
  • Write campaign materials
  • Plan, oversee, and direct online and offline actions
  • Co-create media strategies with our communications team and act as a media spokesperson
  • Work with partners to co-create initiatives

You’ll likely be a great fit if you:

  • Have strong campaign experience – 5+ years preferred.
  • Think strategically
  • Are an excellent project manager and can deftly handle multiple projects
  • Take initiative and can move fast to meet opportunity
  • Are self-motivated, efficient, and focused on results
  • Dream big, plan well, and know how to execute
  • Write well and have excellent oral communication skills
  • Enjoy working with others
  • You don’t need to be a parent, just concerned about the next generation
  • Experience working in this area not necessary

POSITION DETAILS

We are open to full-time. Flexible schedule and work from almost anywhere. Full-time salary ranges from $70,000 – $85,000 depending on experience. Benefits include health insurance (with cost-share for dependents) for employees working > 75% time, three weeks of vacation (plus holidays and the last week of the calendar year off), paid family and sick leave, retirement match after one year, and a FSA account. This position is considered exempt for overtime purposes.

(Note: If you work as a freelance campaigner and prefer a contract rather than a job, don’t let that stop you from applying. We are open to that.)

HOW TO APPLY

Please include the following info and submit using this form.

  • Resume or CV
  • A paragraph or so telling us why you’d be successful in this role
  • A campaign writing sample

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. We encourage folks to apply as soon as possible.

A LITTLE ABOUT US

ParentsTogether is a community of over 2.5 million parents and grandparents working together to make the world a better place for children and families.

We are a small-but-growing team using a unique strategy to mobilize parents. Our experimental approach has helped us achieve growth breakthroughs on platforms from Messenger to TikTok. We provide timely, highly-engaging content on the topics parents care about the most – and then use those same channels to organize parents for economic justice, pandemic relief, public education, affordable childcare, kids’ health, racial justice, protection for immigrant families, and other important priorities.

As an organization, we are creative, collaborative, and work to solve challenges together. We have a positive, low-ego, low-drama work culture. All of us love our work and are driven to help ParentsTogether succeed. Our strategy framework is based on lean startup principles. We try out ideas quickly, see what works, and iterate.

At ParentsTogether, we have an intersectional analysis and believe that building a multiracial, cross-class parent movement is non-negotiable. We are actively working to build a diverse team of staff and contractors; people of color, people from poor and working class backgrounds, LGBTQ folks, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate based upon gender, race, national origin, disability, age, religion, sexual orientation, or gender expression.
