RepresentUs is the nation’s leading right-left anti-corruption organization. We bring together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to secure crucial victories that are defending our Republic and fixing America’s corrupt political system.
But what it means for you, potential coworker, is that you feel what we feel when you wake up every day: a strong sense of purpose that binds you to the spirit of this nation, and an overwhelming sense that you should do something about it. And you want to work with people who feel the same.
RepresentUs is a carefully curated mix of seasoned political campaigners, policy wonks, advertising experts, designers, and engineers. We’re not a startup, but we’ve got startup DNA: we’re nimble, constantly learning and iterating, and we push ourselves to push the envelope – to ignore “industry standards” and set a new standard.
We’re looking for enthusiastic new minds to help us grow, move faster, and achieve more. We believe our political system should reflect the varied voices of our nation, and so should our team. That’s why we’re an Equal Opportunity Employer; people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
In 2018, we helped pass 23 anti-corruption measures—a historic year for the movement.
We’re headquartered in Northampton, MA and also have staff around the country. Come win with us!
You’re a campaign tactician: excellent at developing and managing relationships, and a creative, adept, and proactive problem-solver. You always know the topline status of your campaigns — what’s working well, what needs to change, and how to mitigate threats and seize opportunities — and you don’t need to be asked to make them known. You seamlessly move from task to task and issue to issue, working under tight deadlines in a dynamic environment. You are an exceptional communicator, able to manage up, down, and around to get results. And you’re passionate about the democracy movement and committed to the fight for an America that works for everyone, not just the powerful and well-connected.
