Here is the expertise we're looking for most immediately:
Social Movement Technologies’ mission is to provide strategy, training and campaign support to build people-power for justice and win in the digital age. We're an 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 3400 groups and unions over its first seven years, and worked with 100+ groups on campaigns more in-depth.
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 dramatically deepen digital organizing proficiency. Our focus is 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.
How to apply: Please let us know where you heard about the job. Tell us about your relevant experience.

A later step in the process will include a timed live exercise. References will be required.
***You should have an extensive list of digital tools and tactics with which you work, and campaign collateral and narrative. Please don't take the time to apply if you are not at this level. Thank you!***
