Position Summary:

Progressive Turnout Project (PTP) seeks applicants for State Field Director roles for the 2022 election cycle in seven Senate battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. State Field Directors will primarily be responsible for training, managing, and coaching staff engaged in direct voter contact. State Field Directors will live and work in their state, and travel will be required to Field offices throughout the state.





The State Field Director is responsible for the implementation and management of Progressive Turnout Project’s in-state Field program. This will include hiring and directly working with all in-state field staff through a strong managerial structure that oversees up to 20 regional and district-level leaders and 200 representatives in the field, working in a maximum of 11 cities across the state. State Field Directors should expect to observe and train staff in the field, which will require up to six hours of walking at a time.

The State Field Director is responsible for implementing and executing the planned field program. Their focus will solely be on the ‘people’ side of this project, such as hiring, onboarding, training, managing, and coaching. To that end, operations and targeting will fall under the purview of corresponding in-state Logistics and Data staff, and strategic planning will be driven by National Executive staff.

The duties of this position are subject to modification in response to program or organizational needs. Between the initial start date and June, the State Field Director will work a Monday through Friday schedule. Then, starting in June, PTP conducts direct voter contact from Saturday through Wednesday, and the State Field Director’s core work hours are from Sunday through Thursday. Hours outside of core work hours, including some Saturdays, may be required.  The State Field Director reports directly to the National Field Director.

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