RepresentUs is the nation's leading right-left anti-corruption organization. We bring together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to secure crucial victories that are defending our Republic and fixing America's corrupt political system.
But what it means for you, potential coworker, is that you feel what we feel when you wake up every day: a strong sense of purpose that binds you to the spirit of this nation, and an overwhelming sense that you should do something about it. And you want to work with people who feel the same.
RepresentUs is a carefully curated mix of seasoned political campaigners, policy wonks, advertising experts, designers, and engineers. We're not a startup, but we've got startup DNA: we're nimble, constantly learning and iterating, and we push ourselves to push the envelope—to ignore “industry standards“ and set a new standard.
We’re looking for enthusiastic new minds to help us grow, move faster, and achieve more. We believe our political system should reflect the varied voices of our nation, and so should our team. That's why we're an Equal Opportunity Employer; people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
In 2018, we helped pass 23 anti-corruption measures—a historic year for the movement.
We're headquartered in Northampton, MA and also have staff around the country. Come win with us!
You're looking for an entry-level position in Northampton, MA or San Francisco, CA where you can use digital campaigning to change the world. You've got at least six months of experience (including internships and volunteer work) in either political organizing or digital marketing—and you're hungry for more.
You are detail-oriented, organized, and an analytical thinker: you know how to spot a typo, like to crunch numbers, and are excited about learning HTML/CSS if you don't already (we'll teach you). You know how to collaborate with a team to get things done, but you also know how to manage your own time and multiple projects simultaneously.
Finally, you get excited about utilizing (and growing) your digital organizing skills to contribute to the wave of city and state anti-corruption laws being passed across the country.
And you're ready to do it on a full-time basis from our headquarters in Northampton, MA or our San Francisco, CA office.
