Progressive Turnout Project (PTP) seeks applicants for the State Onboarding Coordinator role to operationalize and streamline the onboarding process for the Relational and Distributed Organizing Programs across 1 of our multiple key Senate battleground states: Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

The State Onboarding Coordinator will be responsible for implementing and overseeing the process for onboarding and offboarding contractors in their assigned state(s). This includes collaborating with the state directors for the Relational Organizing Program, Distributed Organizing Program, and Interviewing team, to put systems in place to track, onboard, and offboard contractor candidates within an intense, quickly-moving program. Depending on the state, the 2 programs will ultimately scale up to an expected total of 1,714 hired contractors. All members of the onboarding team will also be responsible for conducting interviews with candidates, as well as completely own the success of tax form collection, inviting to onboarding sessions, and troubleshooting the onboarding workflow.

Due to the immense numbers of contractors we plan to bring on, this role must be incredibly organized, detail-oriented, and take initiative to make sure expectations and outputs are aligned. This position reports to the National Onboarding Manager 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.
