We will begin reviewing applications on January 3, and applications will remain open/accepted on a rolling basis until the job posting is removed.  

MoveOn is a diverse and vibrant community of millions of people working together to create progressive change in America. We are an innovative campaigning organization that supports people throughout the country to take action through driving impactful campaigns that influence the behavior of people and institutions, shape the outcomes of elections, and expand the realities of what's possible. We organize to challenge entrenched power, while pursuing economic, racial, and social justice and a vision of a country in which everyone can thrive.

MoveOn has a vital role to play in securing progress during the Biden-Harris administration and in organizing the grassroots to set up election wins in 2022 and beyond. We are building a powerful, multiracial, and economic populist movement, and we are fighting for progress on health care, climate, racial justice, and more. In service of that mission, in 2022 and beyond, MoveOn will drive impactful, movement-connected, multichannel, and nimble campaigns aimed at impact.

The Campaign Director role is a remarkable position at the heart of MoveOn's powerful team, which allows you to strategize and to mobilize millions of people for economic justice, accountability, democracy, and dignity for all. You will develop and run campaigns, driving high-impact, public-engaging efforts to involve our millions of members and the broader public in rapid-response moments and sharp strategic initiatives. This role coordinates and leverages MoveOn's many teams to bring the full power of our email, social, mobile, organizing, communications, and other tools to bear on strategic campaign work.

This role is a premiere position in the progressive movement. MoveOn's national Campaign Directors have driven work that's changed the course of history—winning health care access for millions, stopping wars, curbing family separation policies—and have gone on, after MoveOn, to found and direct marquee organizations and serve as elected officials.
