Campaign Advisor (remote)
RepresentUs is hiring a full-time Campaign Advisor with a winning track record in politics who will guide several priority election reform campaigns to victory through 2024. The Advisor develops and maintains relationships with state campaigns and serves as a liaison with funders to ensure state campaigns are built for success, supported to win, and adhering to benchmarking goals tied to stages of funding.
The ideal candidate has at least one or more cycles of experience managing winning statewide ballot initiative campaigns and/or has worked in a multi-client or multi-state advisory role with various types of campaigns. Alternatively, candidates should have at least one cycle managing (and winning ideally) candidate/electoral, legislative lobbying, or issue advocacy campaigns at the local, state or national level. Passion for RepresentUs’ mission to make America work for everyone, not just the powerful and well-connected, is essential. Commitment to working beyond partisanship is required, and past experience working with bipartisan or cross-partisan coalitions is preferred. Knowledge of policy solutions to fight corruption, get big money out of politics, end gerrymandering, and give voters more voice and more choice is a plus.
Reporting to the Political Director of the Campaign Accelerator, the Advisor will:
Conceptualize and refine the most impactful and cost-effective strategies to position a successful campaign, while overseeing the creation and implementation of tailored assets and services necessary to win
Cultivate relationships with key in-state partners and organizations, providing them with analysis, ideas, support, and other guidance
Develop and advise on tactical, strategic, and communications plans for target campaigns
Work closely with the RepresentUs Campaign Accelerator staff to ensure the support of state campaigns
Oversee and provide quality control for campaign budgets and liaise with campaign funders
Participate in strategic planning discussions to assess and advance national, state, and local strategy
Track and report on key campaign metrics to internal and external stakeholders
Skills and Experience
Campaign management experience is required. Candidates without at least 1 cycle of experience managing a campaign will not be considered.
Experience working on ballot initiatives strongly preferred. A track record working on political and/or advocacy campaigns is preferred.
Ability to handle multiple projects simultaneously, meeting frequent deadlines. Experience managing multi-state portfolios is strongly preferred.
Excellent communication skills, both oral and written, with demonstrated success communicating complex political strategies to diverse audiences.
Excellent strategic thinking and execution skills; ability to meet goals within a complex and sophisticated landscape.
Demonstrated experience managing partnerships and relationships at the state and local level, especially those with funders, campaign partners, consultants, and other stakeholders.
Strong budget management skills.
Ability to travel on behalf of the organization as needed (when safe). Advisors usually travel approximately 25% of the time.
This is a remote position, and candidates must have consistent access to reliable internet and phone.

We are committed to bringing in top talent from all sectors. Accordingly, we offer competitive salaries and benefits, including health (Harvard Pilgrim HMO or UnitedHealthcare PPO network) and dental insurance (Delta Dental), both with family/spouse/domestic partner options, retirement benefits, a health reimbursement account, a dependent care account, disability insurance, a wellness benefit, a $1,500 annual professional development stipend, and four weeks paid vacation, plus personal and sick time.
