Position:
Bend the Arc is seeking a passionate and creative digital strategist to join our team in mobilizing our multiracial Jewish community to free our country from white supremacy, antisemitism, and authoritarianism, and advance Black liberation. The Senior Digital Organizer will support national and local digital organizing, including issue advocacy and electoral campaigning; storytelling the work of local groups; promoting cultural, political, and educational programs; and pitching in for rapid response work.

The Senior Digital Organizer will be a member of the Communications team and report to the Digital Director. The role will work collaboratively with members of the Communications, Field, and Advocacy teams. The ideal candidate will be someone who wants to unite their skills and their values by growing a movement of American Jews rising up for Black liberation and the promise of multiracial democracy.

Is building digital campaigns your bread and butter? Can you write a clear and compelling text message, email, or landing page copy? Are you resourceful, collaborative, and tech savvy? If so, read on!

Here’s what you’d do in the job:

  • Generate ideas and develop digital strategies to help win national and local campaigns that dismantle white supremacy. Map arcs of action that mobilize our base, build support, and grow our power to win. Draft and edit advocacy pages, text blasts and p2p campaigns, social media content, and web pages with a strong theory of change at the center. Plus, coach staff organizers and local leaders on how they can use digital tools to support the work of our 20+ chapters.
  • Spot opportunities to engage our supporters, grow our base, and move Jewish communities toward centering racial equity. Stay on top of breaking news, coalition developments, and the energy of our base to spot moments for digital action that contribute to impactful campaigns. Help create opportunities for digital action, engagement, and education that connect the dots between our issues, energize our online base, and bring in new audiences.
  • Take an idea from a meeting to physical reality. Project manage the production of emails, advocacy tools, and website pages, including coordinating staff across teams for input and approvals, implement and test to ensure quality standards, and keep us on a timeline to meet our deadlines.
  • Turn data into strategy. Track, report, and help the team learn from data analytics on the performance of digital content. Propose tests and solutions to, for example, increase click and conversion rates on fundraising emails or reduce bounces on our website.

  • Demonstrated success at keeping multiple projects organized; good short-and long-term planning skills; strong administrative and self-directed time-management skills; comfort working in a fast-paced campaign environment with unanticipated opportunities to advance Bend the Arc’s mission.
