The Obama Campaign Needs Writers and Editors
Obama for America is looking for talented writers and editors to join our digital team.
We're going to run the most effective, creative, and innovative digital campaign in the history of politics, and our digital team will be core to achieving the communications, fundraising and organizing goals of the cause.
Our writing team will help tell the story of the campaign over email, social media, our blog, and online ads.
We're looking for seasoned, scrappy writers who can capture the feeling of a moment in an email that will compel people to take action or put a person's life story into a moving 300-word blog post. You should be able to write the way people talk, and to do it quickly and concisely -- sometimes in 140 characters or less. Ideally, you'll also have a head for online organizing and campaigning, strong attention to detail, and experience managing complex projects.
We'll be hiring people at all levels, from team directors to junior staffers. So whether you're a seasoned digital veteran or are new to the field but hoping to apply your skills to a worthy cause, we hope to hear from you.
If you're right for this team, the following should all be familiar to you:
- Email, blog, or social media copy-writing
- Online organizing
- Project management
- Basic statistical analysis
- HTML and online content and constituent relationship management platforms like Blue State Digital, Convio, Expression Engine, or Drupal
Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications; we also offer a benefits plan.
