About MoveOn
MoveOn is a diverse and vibrant community of millions of people working together to create progressive change in America. We are an innovative campaigning organization that supports people throughout the country to take action through driving impactful campaigns that influence the behavior of people and institutions, shape the outcomes of elections, and expand the realities of what’s possible. We organize to challenge entrenched power, while pursuing economic, racial, and social justice and a vision of a country in which everyone can thrive.MoveOn has a particularly important role to play in the Trump era. We are working to defeat Donald Trump and the GOP in 2020 by building a powerful, multiracial, and economic populist movement that will give voters something to vote for, not just against—and we're also working to defend communities that are on the front lines of Trump and GOP attacks, including immigrants, people of color, the LGBTQ community, and women. In service of that mission, in 2020 and beyond, MoveOn will drive impactful, movement-connected, multichannel, nimble campaigns aimed at impact.About the PositionThe Digital Voter Mobilization Director is an experienced digital organizer and leader who is excited and passionate about helping to imagine, implement, and drive to results a voter mobilization strategy that uses every tool at MoveOn’s disposal -- and a massive base of millions of members -- to inspire battleground state voters to turn out to defeat Donald Trump, with a focus on scaled multichannel digital tactics. The goal of the 2020 Voter Mobilization Team at MoveOn is to turn out 100,000 voters as safely as possible across nine battleground states to vote to defeat Donald Trump, with a focus on who we call “high potential voters” (traditionally called “low propensity voters”) -- young voters, first-time voters, people of color, new Americans and low-income voters who may not have otherwise voted. A core part of our strategy to accomplish this goal is to implement scalable tactics through digital or mobile channels such as by collecting “vote tripling” pledges - a tactic proven to increase voter turnout. The Digital Voter Mobilization Director will be responsible for leveraging MoveOn’s reach and base to digitally collect up to 1 million vote tripling pledges from battleground state voters, and identify and implement other scalable digital tactics to drive turnout in the 2020 election. We are also hiring a Voter Mobilization Director: Vote Captains-- distinct from this role -- who will focus on recruiting, organizing, and supporting thousands of volunteer leaders to organize and turn out 10 of their friends, family members, and community members in battleground states. You can view that job here: this work, we seek to build durable, progressive people power to expand the MoveOn community for ongoing organizing to win positive change in people’s lives in 2020, 2021, and beyond. Primary Responsibilities
