Operating within a campaign strategy to conceive and execute strategic, creative online programs that build an email list, swell grassroots support, recruit volunteers, raise small-dollar contributions online, garner media attention, and help your candidate win on election day
Management of campaign website, including helping in the design and re-design process, updating content, and creating new pages
Management of campaign email program, including list building, online fundraising, advocacy campaigns, email writing, effective testing, and analysis
Management of campaign online advertising program, including working with outside consultants and creating effective campaigns to achieve benchmarks
Management of online press outreach and social networking, including blogging, updating campaign social media assets, and blog/online press outreach
Assisting other departments such as communications, field, and finance to help them be more effective using online tools

Knowledge or experience in javascript/jQuery, Photoshop, advanced front-end web development, field operations, finance operations, communications operations, and electoral campaigns a plus
Pay and benefits competitive. Must be ready to move and work day-to-day on the ground with the campaign, and work long, irregular hours as necessary.

Founded in January 2009, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) is an organization dedicated to helping better, bolder
progressive candidates get elected. We provide candidates with the tools and knowledge to hit the ground running from Day One.
