Run for something - job listings
Run for Something hopes to hire out a team over the next six months. As we grow, we'll continue to add job positions to this page -- check in soon.
We'll also be hiring for positions in marketing & communications, operations, political, and finance. Job descriptions will come later.
Run for Something is a PAC committed to helping recruit and support young diverse progressives running in down-ballot races in order to build a Democratic bench. We are hiring an Organizing Director to join the team in a full-time position, reporting to the Campaigns Director.
The right person for this job is:
Deeply passionate about the cause
Comfortable in a start-up environment where responsibilities may change over time
Not just a strategist -- also a do-er
Digitally savvy -- ready to find new, cheap ways to construct organizing networks without a lot of staff support
Looking for work-life balance -- but ready to occasionally run conference calls from 8-9pm on weeknights or Sunday evening
An excellent oral and written communicator
A strong project manager who can clearly lay out expectations for volunteers and determine methods for celebrating success and holding them accountable
A roll-with-the-punches attitude
Managing RFS volunteers doing any number of activities (calling candidates, candidate recruitment, hosting events, organizational support, etc) in a distributed organizing model
Facilitating a mentorship program between campaign alum and potential candidates
Keeping volunteer materials up to date
Channel volunteer efforts toward candidates as campaigns ramp up
Develop organizing materials for RFS campaigns and assist with organizing programs on races
Build out reporting on volunteer engagement and flake rates -- responsible for coaching and developing volunteer leadership
Consulting candidates on their organizing programs
Recruit and sustain a network of organizing experts to help our candidates
Electoral organizing for at least 2 electoral cycles. Issue organizing also OK but electoral is preferred.
If not in New York City, you must be comfortable working remotely.
Salary is commensurate with experience. We are explicitly looking for diverse talent -- our volunteers and candidates are reflective of the Democratic Party’s coalition and our staff should be, too.
TO APPLY: Email email@example.com a brief note (2-3 paragraphs, at most) in the body of the email explaining your interest in the job and your resume attached as a PDF. Please use "Organizing Director - YOUR FULL NAME" as the subject line.
