Turnout2020 · Mar 11th 2020
Reports To: Chief Executive Officer
Location: Remote. All applicants are welcome.
Salary Range: The salary range for the role of Communications Director is $100K – $130K for candidates based in SF, NYC or DC. The salary range will be adjusted based on cost of living data for folks who live in less expensive regions. Here’s why: we feel strongly that progressive organizations should optimize for a consistent standard of living for all employees.
Turnout2020 is a nonprofit organization founded by a small team of elections and technology experts (including the founders of Vote.org and Vote.gov), who have come together to combat the chaos of the 2020 election cycle by helping to to drive record-shattering voter turnout. We will accomplish this via hyper-aggressive and targeted outreach to the millions of low and no-propensity voters who are generally neglected by partisan groups. This isn’t just empty rhetoric: collectively we’ve registered about 20 million voters and run GOTV to tens of millions more in our past roles. Now we’re scaling up.
What we’re looking for:
Turnout2020 is seeking a dynamic communications professional with a strong advocacy lense and passion for voting access to center the “non-voter” in the narrative of the 2020 elections, while amplifying the impact of the mission and programs of Turnout2020. You’re absolutely energized by the idea of creating a hero out of democracy’s tired, huddled masses. This seasoned executor should have demonstrated experience hijacking news cycles to further advocacy campaigns, a keen sense of the mechanics that drive a good story, and a knack for developing and carrying a message across channels. The successful candidate is competent and comfortable working across organizational functions and teams to coordinate messaging, pitch press, and project manage deliverables.
You’ll be working primarily with our CEO, outside media consultants, and vendors to manage the Turnout2020 communications strategies and capitalize on creative opportunities to amplify the organizations messaging and drive the impact of its mission.
