Fight for the Future · Jul 6th 2017
Headquarters: Boston, MA URL:A-Teams Technical Co-founder FULL STACK DEVELOPER, PRODUCT-CRAFTER, TROUBLEMAKER FOR A BETTER WORLD.
Fight for the Future is a small Internet freedom activism team with big victories to its credit, such as organizing the protests that defeated SOPA/PIPA, and winning net neutrality rules in 2014.
Our new initiative A-Teams aims to create new, two-person teams that can achieve surprising political wins in the issue area of their choice, by combining political strategy and Internet savvy.
We are seeking the founding technical leader for one such “A-Team.” As the technical leader, you will focus on a political issue, such as climate change, prison reform, health care, or voting rights. You and your A-Team will run a campaign to pass strong policy on your issue or stop a disastrous bill from becoming law.
You should be supremely comfortable making and launching novel and creative additions to people’s online life, whether for web, mobile, or walled gardens like Facebook. You should love the rush of launching something on a whim, and seeing it blow up in places like Product Hunt, HN, or reddit.
You should also have strong political attitudes about power, freedom, fairness, or caring for others.
You will work alongside a similarly high-functioning and creative person with concrete experience shifting political reality, e.g. a former Congressional staffer, political campaigner, or lobbyist. We’ll work with you both to develop and execute plans.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
This is a full time contract position renewed on a monthly basis. Note: since this is a start-up, ongoing funding is not guaranteed, but it’s likely we can provide ongoing funding if your work goes well and demonstrates impact.
