Join Our Team

We’re looking for talented progressives who are passionate about digital organizing and taking up the fight to protect our democracy.

Senior Director, Digital Campaigns

Press Secretary

Senior Digital Strategist


Senior Director, Digital Campaigns

Location: Remote

Stand Up America is a progressive, digital-first advocacy organization with 2 million grassroots members who are working to stand up to corruption and voter suppression and build a more representative democracy. We’re fighting for democracy reforms at the local, state, and federal level that would expand voting rights, reduce the impact of big money in our politics, and end structural barriers that conservatives have built to impede progressive change. Our members have driven more than a million constituent calls to their representatives, mobilized tens of thousands of protestors, contacted tens of millions of voters, and helped pass bold democracy reforms at the state and federal levels.

We envision a democracy where:

  • Every American has representation, regardless of where they live, what they look like, or how they identify.
  • Racist barriers to the ballot are torn down and voting rights are expanded to ensure that voting is accessible, secure, and treated as the sacred right that it is.
  • Americans from all walks of life can run for office and win based on the power of their ideas, voice, and experience—not on how much money they can raise from themselves or wealthy donors.
  • Our government is responsive to the will of the American people—and will finally take bold action on the pressing issues facing our nation, from gun violence and climate change to immigration reform and racial & economic justice.

Reporting into the Managing Director of Digital Campaigns, the Senior Director of Digital Campaigns will join a high-functioning, 12-person digital team focused on demanding the democracy we deserve.

In this role, you will be managing a team of digital practitioners who are responsible for managing our highly-impactful broadcast SMS program, cultivating and organizing volunteers, running and executing paid digital advertising campaigns, and analyzing and reporting on the results. This team has helped drive 1.7 million calls to lawmakers, contact over 25 million voters in 2020, and regularly provides insights to help fuel our robust advocacy efforts towards building a more just and equitable democracy.

With a focus on measurable impact, you will create, execute and report on cutting-edge digital campaigns to protect and expand voting rights at the state and federal level and work to elect democracy champions at the ballot box. You’ll mobilize hundreds of thousands of Americans to take action, and you’ll mobilize tens of thousands to become more committed activists and organizers.

More specifically, you will:

  • Establish a vision for our digital campaigns, encompassing volunteers, data and digital advertising.
  • Oversee strategy, content, and editorial calendar decisions for SMS, volunteer and advertising campaigns and ensure they are closely aligned and coordinated with broader campaign strategies.
  • Ensure that our databases are well-maintained and integrated with one another.
  • Regularly set team benchmarks and track progress toward those key digital engagement metrics. Oversee weekly and monthly reporting and analysis on results.
  • Approve and edit copy/creative to ensure it meets digital best practices and effectively drives our audience to action.
  • Draft and execute quarterly digital campaign plans.

Must haves:

  • 6+ years of experience, including time at a fast-paced nonprofit, political campaign, or agency.
  • A strong understanding of digital campaign best practices, particularly issue-based advocacy campaigns and tools like Spoke, Hustle, Mobile Commons, Strive, or Revere.
  • Experience driving measurable impact and experience using analytics to drive your work.
  • 2+ years of direct management experience, with a demonstrated ability to lead staff with emotional intelligence and drive results.
  • A commitment to racial equity and justice.
  • Strong attention to detail, even in a fast-paced campaign environment.
  • Passion for voting rights, reducing the influence of big money in our elections, and strengthening our democracy.

Nice-to-haves:

  • Experience cultivating and motivating volunteers.
  • Work with voter file data, particularly at an advocacy organization.
  • Having overseen a member database, particularly one focused on driving an audience to action.
  • Direct experience executing digital advertising campaigns, particularly around direct action.
  • Experience working with progressive infrastructure, including tools like Civis, ActionKit, EveryAction, ThruTalk, CallHub, Mobilize (just to name a few).
  • Past work on democracy reform.

We’re an Equal Opportunity Employer—women; Black, Indigenous, and people of color; people with disabilities; and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

  • Our government is responsive to the will of the American people—and will finally take bold action on the pressing issues facing our nation, from gun violence and climate change to immigration reform and racial & economic justice.

We seek a Senior Digital Content Strategist, reporting directly to our Digital Content Director, to imagine, draft, and produce compelling digital content.

Joining a twelve person digital team, you will be responsible for ensuring our digital content, primarily web, advertising and email, engages our audience. You will make sure that any content we put out is error free, and help ensure we have the most effective advocacy tools in our arsenal to put the pressure on lawmakers at the right moment.

You will be creating, executing on, and analyzing campaigns to educate and inspire the Stand Up America community to advocate for expanding voting rights on the state and federal level, making sure all Americans have access to the ballot box, and electing democracy champions up and down the ballot.

This position will join a mission-driven and energetic team that is fully remote.

You will:

  • Write inspiring content. Whether it’s an email, landing page, video, tools our members can use to contact their lawmakers, or advertising copy—you will be writing best-practice digital content every day.
  • Pitch creative ideas. You want to make sure that you’re always doing the most exciting work possible and you have ideas for how to work with our in-house creative team to get it done. Graphic emails, short and to the point videos, or long form stories from those impacted by the policies we work on, you’re always thinking about how to bring our work to life.
  • Catch mistakes. Produce content that is error free and easy for our community to use: your quality standards are high and nothing slips past you. You’re checking our website’s meta images or how our emails are being delivered, and you’re helping come up with solutions when problems pop up.
  • Move fast and slow. Some content takes weeks, other content takes hours. You’re able to prioritize well and project manage content on a variety of timelines.
  • Learn from and incorporate best practices over time. Monitor email and website performance and report back on our campaigns and help incorporate those learnings back into our program. Digital best practices are always evolving, and testing is the lifeblood of our work

You have:

  • 3+ years of prior progressive advocacy writing experience. You have motivated an audience to contact their legislators, vote in an election or take another civic action.
  • Knowledge of digital writing best practices: You’ve written emails, ads or web copy or social media for a progressive organization or candidate and are familiar with current digital writing best practices and excited to keep on top of best practices as they change and evolve.
  • Ability to produce compelling and versatile materials. You can creatively adjust voice and tone across issues, audiences, and authors, and you’re able to adjust style and ideas to the platforms you’re creating for. You’re excited to pitch and workshop new ideas for things to create as a team.
  • Passion for protecting and expanding our democracy. Every day, you’ll be waking up and trying to motivate our community, voters or ads audiences to care about our democracy. Beyond any one election, you care about the long-term health of our democracy and want to help build a grassroots movement to defend it.
  • Great project management and communication skills. You’re able to track timelines for multiple projects and are a clear and considerate communicator with team members or partners when making or fulfilling requests. You’re comfortable taking a piece of digital content from writing to production.

You might have:

  • Experience working on democracy issues. Every day, we talk to our community about the importance of building a more representative democracy. It’s a plus if you’ve written about issues like voting rights, bringing new voters into our elections, making voting more accessible to all Americans, and holding elected officials accountable.
  • Worked with CRMs and CMSs. You might have spent time in EveryAction, ActionKit, Action Network, Salsa, Silver Pop, MailChimp, or WordPress etc. You know that if you include formatting from a Word or Google Doc, it messes up formatting and you have a tried and true process to fix it.
  • Data and Analytics. You may know what open and click rates are, and what a good click to open rate even is. We incorporate our learnings from our program weekly and monthly, and you’ll play a key role in helping look at our program data.
  • Comfort with presenting and speaking publicly. Stand Up America is fully remote, so we’re often sharing out learnings in large groups.
  • Familiarity with basic HTML. We don’t code from scratch, but when we’re creating emails or laying out web content, some familiarity with HTML can help.
