Political and Campaigns Intern

 
 

This position is based in our Washington, D.C office.

Role

Campaigns are our partners and at the center of everything we do at MobilizeAmerica. And with our list of partner campaigns growing by the day, we’re looking for a results-driven people person to help us manage those relationships, to help us deliver an unparalleled experience to our customers, and to serve as a coach and sounding board as they seek to expand their volunteer program.

You’ll work hand-in-hand with every part of our organization to ensure that campaigns are best equipped to recruit thousands of volunteers using the MobilizeAmerica events platform. After the internship, you’ll have gained valuable exposure to Democratic campaigns up-and-down the ticket, as well as project management and communications skills that come from working in a fast-paced environment with many stakeholders.

 

In particular, you'll work on:

  • Serve as the first ‘line of defense’ for many of our partner campaigns, ranging from US Senate to City Council

  • Ensure that partner campaigns/organizations have a thorough understanding on how to use the MA platform for staff and volunteers and feel empowered to use the platform independently

  • Produce training materials (both written and video) on how the platform works and how to best use it to maximally improve campaign operations

  • Advise Campaign Managers and Field Directors on best practices for volunteer recruitment, via online and offline sources

  • Surface and synthesize feedback and requests from campaigns as they interact with the MA platform

  • Conduct feedback calls with key clients and partners

  • Collect and synthesize political news and develop takeaways for MobilizeAmerica’s targeting and operations

  • Write regular blog posts on political issues of your choosing, for distribution to our network of partners and volunteers

Who you are:

  • An enthusiastic team-player

  • Passionate about electing Democrats up-and-down the ticket in 2018

  • An excellent verbal and written communicator

  • Excited to dive into data to find useful insights

  • Proficient in Microsoft Office and Google Docs

  • Experienced in political communication and/or organizing

  • Currently enrolled in a degree-conferring program

Bonus points for:

  • Experience on a political campaign in organizing or digital

  • Exposure to peer-to-peer SMS platforms, including GroundGame, Hustle, or Relay

  • Exposure to software-as-a-service organizations and business models

  • Proficiency in NGP VAN

Nuts and Bolts:

  • 8-12 weeks

  • Flexible start and end dates
