This job is for you if...you're passionate about building progressive movements, and you love helping things run smoothly and efficiently and being of service to people requesting help.
Social Movement Technologies’ mission is to provide organizing strategy, training and campaign support to build progressive power and win in the digital age. We're a non-profit movement support group, driven 100% to meet movement needs.
SMT’s small but highly effective team has trained staff from over 2400 groups and unions over its first seven years, and worked with several dozen groups on campaigns more in-depth.
SMT is now playing a lead role in developing the in-depth digital campaign apprenticeship training that organizers, communications, fundraising and director-level staff 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 on the Left. 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.
Compensation and Hours. This is a contract position paid $30/hour, for 3-7 hours/week (will vary and can be somewhat flexible also according to your needs). Must be able to work during normal office hours for most of the time.
