Overview

This position will be directly supervised by PA Stand Up’s Director of Communications and Narrative. Additionally, it will require close collaboration with other members of the communications team (both staff and contractors), as well as staff organizers and volunteers at both the statewide and chapter level. Because this position directly relates to the 24-news cycle and social media environment, it will require weeknight and weekend hours.

Because this position is temporary (Oct 1 – Dec 31) in an unusual election year, we will consider candidates based anywhere in the continental US.

Note: Our preference is to hire a full-time digital organizer for this role, but we are open to hiring the right contractor or firm to deliver on the scope of work outlined below. If you are a firm, please send in a 1-page proposal in lieu of a resume and cover letter.
