Digital Marketing Director

Context

Feeling held back in your current role? Want to take a major leap forward in your career and impact on the world?

If you want to use your skills to create a paradigm shift in what democracy means and what an inspiring future of politics could look like for America, then this is for you.

About of by for*
We need a new way forward. We all know this—whether we’re on the left, on the right, in the middle, or completely checked out.

Our mission is to free America from parties and politicians, and make it so government finally does right by its people. The key to this is replacing elections with democratic lotteries.

So far we’ve been featured in FastCompany, Axios, Mic, and Malcom Gladwell’s Revisionist History podcast. Later this year, we’re having a national public launch around the release of a first-of-its-kind documentary that will provide a glimpse of our vision. It will show the inspiring journey of citizen representatives, selected by lottery, working across difference to find common ground around COVID—while another divisive election tore the country farther apart.

About the team
We’re a remote team of 3 about to grow to 5. You’d be among the first hires, reporting directly to the co-coordinators, and would play a significant role in helping shape the growth of the organization. At our core we are caring, daring, and determined. And key to our work is being able to continuously learn, adapt, and collaborate. Occasional travel for in person teamwork is required.

We provide a single salary across the organization for all roles – $68,000 / year. This is tied to the distribution of income in America, not market rates. And we offer solid benefits including health insurance coverage, paid time off, childcare support, and paid parental leave. We strive to create a work environment where people from all walks of life feel welcome, supported, and that they belong.

Who we're looking for

Because we’re a startup we move fast and juggle a lot. We need a teammate who can take initiative and learn as they go. Someone who has already accomplished a lot but knows they can do so much more. Someone looking to level-up their career and their contribution to the world by helping launch a bold and ambitious initiative from scratch.

We encourage people from all kinds of backgrounds to apply. You’d have to be able to fully commit to putting your personal politics and ego aside and putting democracy first. You’d have to be ready to work closely with people from all walks of life and across the political spectrum who hold very different views from you on substantive issues.


The role

Digital Marketing Director

Your mission would be to spread our story and build an engaged community of supporters who are amplifying it. You’d implement an integrated approach to building out all of our digital channels from scratch. The first major focus would be working toward our national public launch later this year, centered on the release of our documentary.

We’re looking for someone who understands how all of the different marketing channels fit together and can work across them, but who has a special expertise and interest in organic social media and influencer engagement.

You are:

Most importantly:

  • A storyteller at heart
  • Oriented toward building relationships and community with supporters
  • A strong copywriter with a decent understanding of what makes for good design

Also:

  • A fan and follower of the latest happenings in pop culture
  • Tuned into the unique culture and trends of each social media platform
  • Eager to embrace and experiment with emerging social media platforms
  • Up to date on the latest industry trends and tools
  • Experienced enough with several years of relevant work

You will (working closely with our team):

    • Translate our brand strategy into an integrated approach across content, seo, email, social media and influencer engagement
    • Look for ways to start conversations online and insert ourselves into relevant existing conversations
    • Consistently and authentically engage 1-1 online with lots of people every day
    • Setup and maintain the necessary digital infrastructure for analytics and use data to inform decisions
    • Look for ways to optimize conversion and retention across the entire user journey
    • Collaborate alongside organizing teammates to ensure everyone’s work aligns and is mutually reinforcing

Interested?

To apply, please send an email to with “Digital Marketing” in the subject. Explain why this opportunity speaks to you and why you think you’re an excellent fit for it. Thanks!

About

About us

We’re a non-partisan, non-profit working to replace politicians with everyday people. That’s it. We don’t take sides on any issues and we don’t take money with strings attached.

We began as a few regular people who’d had it with corrupt, divisive, dysfunctional politics. We wanted to see America heal its divide and rise to its challenges. Our growing team now spans the country and the political spectrum. We have different views on substantive issues but we’re united in our conviction that government should be of, by, and for the people.

George Zisiadis

George built a successful art career by re-imagining iconic public spaces in ways that reached people emotionally. His work was featured in TIME, NPR, WIRED, and FastCompany. But he eventually felt a call to go beyond art and design.

In 2018, he started searching for a way to dedicate his talents to helping turn our troubled country around. He studied social change and social movements from past to present. And along the way, he discovered the transformative promise of democratic lotteries.
