This job is for you if...you’re super driven and ambitious about building progressive movements; you have deep experience with both online and offline organizing; 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. This is a senior position, for someone who wants to invest deeply and take leadership in the organization's work.
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 1800 groups and unions over its first six 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. This is a full-time position. The range for this position is a total compensation package of $70-90K, depending on experience and location (top of scale would highest level of experience, in a high-cost city). Benefits include the option for full health care and partially covered dental benefits, the value of which would be included in the total compensation package. Additional benefits include a 401K plan and paid sick, vacation, and federal holidays. We offer support for remote work, training and mentoring, 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 so no need to commute or relocate. Our team members are based all over the country and work over video, Slack, and through project management tools.
