- Identify opportunities for collaboration and/or engagement between American Progress and its partners, including pitching content for promotion on social media, video collaborations, event opportunities, messaging strategy, and more.
- Identify new potential partners and ways to expand and deepen American Progress’ work with both progressive political and nonpolitical voices.
- Stay up to date on the latest trends and best practices for digital content and distribution.
- Share feedback from and among partners on content performance, effective tactics, and emerging needs.
- Track and report out on metrics and progress.
- Perform other duties as assigned.
### **Requirements and qualifications:**

- Expert networking skills, proactive, and a self-starter; ability to work both independently and collaboratively.
- Detail-oriented with the ability to juggle multiple projects for different stakeholders, often in rapid-response or high-pressure situations.
- Creative and committed to innovation and experimentation; open to developing new skills as needed.
