Progressive Turnout Project (PTP) seeks candidates for the National Interviewing Manager role to operationalize and streamline the recruitment, vetting,  and interviewing process for the Relational and Distributed Organizing Programs across multiple key Senate battleground states, likely including Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.


The National Interviewing Manager will be responsible for implementing and overseeing the application, online vetting, and interview process of contractors in multiple states. This includes collaborating with the Relational Organizing Director, Distributed Organizing Director, Talent Manager, National Onboarding Manager, National Recruitment Manager, and other national leads to put systems in place to track, evaluate, and interview contractor candidates within an intense, quickly-moving program. This program will ultimately scale up to a total of 12,000 hired contractors at most. We will need to recruit approximately 4 times as many contractors as we expect to hire, so this position’s online vetting and interviewing coordination will need to account for up to 48,000 candidates moving through our hiring pipelines.

This role will oversee State Interviewing Coordinators in each state who will be responsible for coordinating daily interviewing operations on-the-ground for both the Relational and Distributed Organizing programs. As such, this role must be incredibly organized, able to effectively delegate tasks and follow-up, and take initiative to make sure expectations and outputs are aligned. They will need to direct coordinators, program staff, and other national staff to conduct interviews efficiently. This position reports to the Chief Operating Officer and the duties of this role are subject to modification in response to program or organizational needs.

This position is eligible for benefits, including employer-sponsored health, dental, and vision insurance, FSA, 401(k), student loan repayment assistance, paid time off, and paid holidays.

There are no formal education requirements for this position. People of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
