Seeking: Voter Guide Toolkit Campaign Leader
It’s an exciting time for technology+politics in general, and for me in particular. I am a volunteer manager of e-thePeople.org, and I am in charge of hiring a Campaign Leader for our Voter Guide Toolkit project. It’s an exciting project, and the job is quite well-compensated as non-profits go. We’re hitting stride for the project: we already have $175k in repeat customers ready to sign up and a major site redesign underway. Here’s a short (e.g., 50 sec) video and a brief excerpt from the entire job description
The Job: Leading a nonpartisan initiative to educate millions of voters for the 2008 election, working in collaboration with leading media and advocacy organizations.
The Right Candidate: You are entrepreneurial and not afraid to take a chance on an unconventional but high-impact idea. You are politically aware and engaged, and are as committed to improving the way the whole system works as you are to any one particular cause or point of view. You have approximately 2-5 years of sales, marketing, political campaign, political organizing, or project management experience. You are friendly and comfortable working with clients, but also capable of managing expectations and saying “no” when necessary; you are organized and good at handling the occasional crisis. You are interested in the way technology is changing business, society and the government.
If I have your email address, you should expect to get an email about this too. Please help distribute the job opportunity widely!
