$70,000 - $100,000
This job is for you if...you’re super driven and ambitious about building people-power movements for justice; you have deep experience with both online and offline campaigning; you think strategically, enjoy coaching, work really well with people; you’re entrepreneurial at heart - 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 a senior position, for someone who wants to invest deeply and take leadership in the organization's work and be in the trenches working on campaigns too.
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 2400 groups and unions over its first seven years, and worked with 70+ 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.
Compensation. This is a full-time position. The total compensation package will vary based on location. SMT's pay policy adjusts compensation in part based on cost-of-living. Benefits include health care (cost is included in the salary range), employer match to 401K plan contributions, sick leave, 4 weeks of vacation, and 13 holidays (additional time off can be worked out if needed, with a reduction in salary). We offer support for remote work, access to regular training, and a driven, highly collaborative, supportive work environment. We’d like to start working with you on a contract basis at an hourly rate, but we are looking for this to be a full-time position with competitive salary and benefits for the right person.
Location. Social Movement Technologies is a 100% remote organization. Ideally for this position you would be based in the U.S. or Canada.
