This job is for you if...you’re super driven and ambitious about building people-power movements for justice, including movements for women's rights and for climate action and justice; you have deep experience with both online and offline campaigning in Asia; you think strategically, enjoy coaching, work really well with people; you’re creative and hungry to see change happen; and you’re nimble at finding ways to meet needs and shape solutions. You can manage teams and you also are excellent at running an online/offline campaign and its component pieces yourself. This is for someone who wants to invest deeply and take leadership in the organization's work and be in the trenches working on campaigns too.
About SMT. Social Movement Technologies’ mission is to provide organizing strategy, training and campaign support to build people-power for justice and win in the digital age. We're a non-profit/NGO movement support group, driven 100% to meet movement needs. We're super lean - we do lots with little, just like most of the groups we work with.
SMT’s small but highly effective team has trained staff from over 4900 groups and unions over its first 10 years, and worked with 200+ groups on campaigns more in-depth. Staff team members are based in the U.S., Kenya, the Philippines, Palestine, Sweden, and other countries.
SMT provides the in-depth digital campaign training that staff and activists need in the digital age. Our goal is to expand access by driving down the cost of this training and providing excellent online learning experiences to deepen digital organizing proficiency dramatically. We focus on using digital campaigning to amplify in-person action, broaden support, activate supporters, and pressure targets. Our bias is towards meeting the needs of small to medium-size groups.
Location. Social Movement Technologies is a 100% remote organization. For this post you must be located in Asia.
