The nonprofit Mozilla Foundation is passionate about the Internet remaining a global public resource that is open and accessible to all. Our advocacy campaigns are focused on holding companies responsible for making safe, ethical products for global internet consumers. In 2018, we challenged Facebook’s third-party sharing, urged Venmo’s to change its ‘public by default’ app payment setting, and successfully removed the hackable Cloudpets toy from stores in the US. Our work generates responses from companies and garners top-tier media coverage in outlets such as the New York Times, Wired and NPR.

We’re seeking a US-based Campaigner who will execute and evolve our campaign work for the greatest impact and results. Beginning in 2019, we’ll begin tackling the issue of machine decision-making and algorithms, in addition to our work on data privacy, security and other internet health topics. Our work centers on standing up on behalf of consumers, forging effective partnerships with partner organizations and measuring concrete impact.

Issue experience isn’t as important as a passion for campaigning and a track record of wins, creativity and great writing. We’re looking for a colleague who will be excited to learn from our strong, existing team as well as inspire us as we get better at this work.

The key areas of responsibility include the following:

  • Developing and executing campaigns that drive action, increase our base of supporters and, ultimately, create impact
  • Drafting email alerts and campaign materials with the highest standards of clear writing, evidence, sources, and accuracy
  • Innovating new ways to garner grassroots attention and action in order to help win campaigns and build a dynamic grassroots movement
  • Building state-of-the-art messaging that can capture the nuance of policy positions while resonating with a larger audience
  • Nurturing existing partnerships, as well as forging new alliances particularly among organizations new to these issues
  • Working closely with our digital engagement team to develop effective campaign tools and materials
  • Building collaborative relationships within Mozilla and across other programs funded under the same initiative

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

  • At least 5-7 years of professional experience working in the non-profit sector; experience working with internet rights or consumer rights organizations preferred

  • Strong analytical, oral, written and social communications skills in English; additional languages preferred
