Posted on Saturday, May 25, 2024

About the Program:

Ahead of the 2024 elections, Movement Labs is launching a political tactic incubator with unprecedented ambition. Our goal is to explore, analyze, and scale innovative strategies that persuade, mobilize, and register voters to counteract Trump's influence. We are committed to investing millions in successful initiatives, focusing on new organizing programs and turnout tactics. These efforts will target low-turnout, high-opportunity voters in marginalized communities, persuade Republican voters toward President Biden, and enhance voter registration efforts. The objective is to garner 50,000 votes for Biden ahead of the November Election.


Location: Remote | Arizona, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, North Carolina, or Georgia preferred but not required.

Start Date: ASAP

Compensation: $85,000-$91,000, depending on experience

Duration: This is a full-time, exempt position through November 15, 2024.

About the Role:

Movement Labs is hiring an Organizing Director for the 2024 cycle. This role is a mission-critical position for our Political Innovation Incubator—it leads the execution of any political innovation idea that involves getting humans, both paid and volunteer, to contact other humans.

This role will be responsible for moving dozens of ideas through the process of vetting, scoping, and project planning and piloting them to assess if they have the potential to net over 1000 votes across the seven battleground states. If pilots are successful, work includes scaling those ideas up ahead of the 2024 election. This role will report to and work closely with the VP of Political Innovation.

This role will oversee several pilot projects. Two examples are online community organizing, which recruits and trains active online forum users in hundreds of forums to engage in persuasive conversation, and meme-making, which moves undecided voters to vote for Biden. Volunteer-Voter Buddies - a VPB where blue state volunteers call targets in battleground states who share characteristics, such as the same first and last name, occupation or demographics, and persuade them to register to vote.

This role will be responsible for quickly testing the effectiveness and feasibility of such programs and then scaling up those that prove most effective.
