This Director will build a culture of excellence across the regionals and states to hit ambitious goals and build a large organization of volunteers and volunteer leaders. At their core, the Deputy National Organizing Director deeply believes in supporting staff and volunteers in states to talk to voters online and in-person to build capacity.

  • Manage and build strong systems, trackers, and cross functional communication for state organizing programs and national organizing leadership.
  • Draft national battleground organizing content, recommendations, and big programmatic pushes in collaboration with HQ departments.
  • Collaborate with General Election Directors, the National Organizing Director, and the National Training Director to develop recommendations, share and strategize around training and coaching content, and implement program support and interventions.
  • Build programs and systems with Operations and HR to support state hiring of hundreds of organizing positions.

  • You’re strong on details, and able to track many complex projects soup to nuts.

  • You’re a born executor– driving projects and coordinating all their nitty, gritty details from beginning to end excites you.
  • No task is too small— you are as comfortable chasing approvals and making copy edits as you are having a 1:1 with a volunteer as you are writing a surrogate memo.
