What you’ll do:
Assist with and run online training to meet racial justice and other movement needs
Carry out a range of campaign strategy and implementation support for Black-led and other partner groups
Build and maintain relationships with a range of organizing networks
Co-lead SMT’s work across North America, with significant opportunity to shape new projects to meet identified movement needs
Keep your fingers on the pulse of new tech and digital developments, testing out tools and comparing them so that SMT can help groups sift through the options and stay on the cutting edge.
What we’re looking for in you (as many of these as possible!)
You have a minimum of 5 years of relevant campaign experience, in which you held high-level responsibility that included digital campaigning on racial justice.
You have a knack for campaigning and understand what it takes to make a difference, including how to build power on the issue, who we need with us, messaging that will move people, and the steps to get you there.
You apply an organizer’s mindset to the use of digital tools, including bringing in your experience in volunteer or full-time organizing roles.
You have broad experience of running racial justice and other issue campaigns, for example doing your own memes with a sense for design and messaging, or setting up Facebook ad campaigns – not relying on other staffers for creative or ad setup. You’ve worked as part of smaller teams, not just large.
You have experience with coaching and training people.
You have management and organizational skills that enable you to keep a number of projects on track and delegate to other members of our team and contractors.
You have previous experience working remotely, are highly self-motivated, and crave work that involves constant learning.

About Social Movement Technologies
mission is to provide organizing strategy, training and campaign support to build people-power for justice and win in the digital age. We're a non-profit/NGO movement support group, driven 100% to meet movement needs. We're super lean - we do lots with little, just like most of the groups we work with.
SMT’s small but highly effective team has trained staff from over 3500+ groups and unions over its first eight years, and worked with 100+ groups on campaigns more in-depth.
SMT provides the in-depth digital campaign training that staff and activists need in the digital age. Our goal is to expand access by driving down the cost of this training and providing excellent online learning experiences to dramatically deepen digital organizing proficiency. Our focus is on using digital campaigning to amplify in-person action, broaden support, activate supporters, and pressure targets. Our bias is towards meeting the needs of small to medium-size groups.
