WHO WE ARE:
DigiDems positively impacted Democratic outcomes in the 2018 election cycle by leveraging top-tier technologists in critical races. In 2019, were putting DigiDems into the field to implement best practices in the tech space, optimize platforms and opportunities, and utilize resources fully.
The Campaign Tech Specialist acts as an on-site technology liaison and administrator for a political campaign, state Democratic party, or a progressive-minded cause. You will be assigned to one of these groups during the 2019 campaign cycle and work directly with them on all aspects of their campaign, but especially providing expertise and guidance on technology implementation and execution to ensure Democratic victories in races at all levels of government.
Deployed to key races, DigiDem Campaign Tech Specialists (DigiDems) act as resources for our clients. As such, DigiDems will be supervised day-to-day by the campaigns (campaign manager/staff) to which they are assigned, with support offered by DigiDem HQ.
Must be passionate about the Democratic agenda and willing to roll up your sleeves, be adventurous, work long hours, and temporarily relocate to support your campaign or organization. You will have the opportunity to learn and contribute to fundamental aspects of the campaign, beyond technology. This is an opportunity to develop career-making skills, gain contacts in politics and technology, and have a positive impact on the world. Taking initiative, finding a niche, and building strong relationships play big parts in all of this as you move from success to success across a variety of projects and responsibilities.
In this role, you will be on-site to assist with best practices, implementation, integration and execution for a range of projects which may include many of the following:
Temporary Assignment: This position is classified as full-time temporary employment. It will conclude 2-3 weeks after the conclusion of the election(s).
Placement/Location will be determined by the Company: Placement is at our discretion but we will consider all variables involved, though we cannot guarantee a specific location.
Transportation: A valid drivers license and owning a vehicle you are comfortable driving, sometimes long distances at a moments notice, is your responsibility and is a requirement of the position.
Though we deploy DigiDems to Democratic races across the country, prior campaign experience is not a requirement. There is, however, an alignment to Progressive culture and values that is imperative and will be discussed during the interview process.
Expertise, Focus or Training
The ideal candidate will have demonstrated either expertise, focus, or training in at least one of the following technology disciplines:
We provide the option of enrolling in an employee medical coverage benefit plan, which includes availability of dental and vision plans for both the primary employee as well as applicable dependents.
