Marketing and Business Development Intern
This position is based in New York City.
MobilizeAmerica is at a pivotal point in its growth. We’ve successfully proven the value of our product to key clients, and are now scaling to have the maximum possible impact in the 2018 midterm elections. You will be working at the intersection of business, technology, and politics, giving you the opportunity to develop your skills across a unique range of areas.
In particular, you’ll work on:
Growing our base of organizations that use the MobilizeAmerica platform with targeted outreach efforts.
Growth experiments. As a rapidly-growing start-up, we learn more everyday about how we can best develop our product and interact with the market. Specifically you will be running experiments on how we can increase volunteer registration, and get volunteers to sign up more than once.
Developing marketing strategies for bolstering volunteer engagement. We need volunteers to be excited about signing up for a campaign event!
Supporting campaigns, grassroots organizing groups, and volunteers as they learn how to use our product for the first time or navigate new features.
Leading our social media campaigns. As a young, socially-driven company, developing and staying true to our brand identity is essential. Social media is our most prominent public voice.
Who you are:
Current college student or recent graduate with experience or academic background in business, entrepreneurship, political science, economics or a related field.
A self-starter who is excited by the opportunity to work in a dynamic start-up environment. In both politics and entrepreneurship, things can change really fast, so you embrace unexpected projects and challenges with enthusiasm.
You have some background in graphic design, Facebook Ad Manager, Google AdWords, Medium, and/or Photoshop/Illustrator.
You care deeply about empowering ordinary people for progressive causes. We’re a mission-driven company, and everything we do is guided by political impact. At the end of the day, we’re here to support progressive candidates and causes.
