Activate America is a field-oriented Independent Expenditure organization that harnesses grassroots power to elect Democrats to the U.S. House and Senate. We connect individual volunteers and organizations with opportunities for direct voter contact through postcards, phone banking, texting, and canvassing.  For the 2024 elections, we are targeting U.S. Senate races in AZ, MT, NV, OH and PA, as well as competitive House races in those states as well as California and New York.

We are looking for a talented, patient, and charismatic campaign associate with a customer service mentality to help expand and run our voter contact programs, and support our fundraising efforts, so that we can empower volunteers and volunteer groups to engage in electoral action. 

Job Description: 
The Campaign Associate will help run our voter contact programs, including phone banking, postcarding and canvassing, and will work with our PAC Director on fundraising. The ideal candidate will have at least one cycle of campaign and organizing experience,  good writing skills, strong attention to detail, and a creative approach to grassroots civic engagement. 

Key Responsibilities:
- Work with the Postcard Program Manager to support individual volunteers and postcard groups 
- Assist with leading Zoom phone banks, including training new phone banking volunteers and providing technical assistance 
- Coordinate with local partners to identify and develop appropriate canvassing opportunities for Activate America volunteers

Most of our staff is based in California, but our volunteers are nationwide.  We prefer that the Campaign and Development Associate reside in the Bay Area, but we are willing to consider candidates anywhere in the US. The job is remote, but travel for occasional in-person meetings and events, as well as some evening and weekend work may be required.

We are seeking a commitment through the November 2024 election. The anticipated start date is June 1, but we are willing to be flexible for the right candidate.
