With more than 250 million people using Change.org, we are the world’s largest technology platform for social change. Our team spans 18 countries and empowers hundreds of millions of people to use their voice to win the change they want to see. Nearly every hour, a petition on Change.org achieves victory. 

In the US alone, hundreds of people use Change.org to start petitions every single day, on everything from ending mass shootings to curbing food waste in grocery stores to fighting for affordable drug prices and everything in between.

We're looking for a talented Associate Campaigner to elevate the heroes that start these campaigns and help them mobilize the people power to win.

As an Associate Campaigner, you will:

  • Identify compelling petitions started on Change.org in North America, and work with the campaigners on your team to support petition starters to optimize their petition text, implement smart tactics, and amplify these petitions to reach millions of potential supporters on Change.org and keep the pressure up ‘til victory;
  • Track compelling issues and news stories to identify good opportunities for impactful petitions and find individual heroes to lead these petitions;
  • Work with a team of crackerjack campaigners, media, and email experts to support petition starters achieve impact -- you’ll support the team to develop comprehensive campaign strategy, media tactics, compelling content, email blasts, creative petition deliveries, and more, as you help people move their campaign towards victory and ultimately win, and;
  • Collaborate with a global team of campaigners to identify opportunities for creating effective grassroots campaigns that win measurable social change around the world and build global communities of learning with shared wisdom and experience on campaigning best practices.

You’re a great fit for this role if you have:

  • Experience campaigning for social impact, be it in your school, community, or with a team (0-2 years experience);
  • A deep commitment to our mission of empowering people everywhere to win campaigns on the critical issues of our times;
  • Strong, fast writing skills;
  • A hunger for impact: you relentlessly pursue the win; and
  • Strong sense of fun, imagination, and a willingness to take risks, fail, learn and adapt

As a bonus, you might also have:

  • Experience mobilizing people to take action, online and on the ground;
  • An ability to spot 'cultural zeitgeist' moments and to know when a trend or news story has the capability of breaking out and becoming a dominant national conversation;
  • A strong grasp of politics, the political process, and current social change issues within the United States.
  • Relationships with communities that have faced disadvantage, discrimination or marginalization;
  • Passion and initiative matter more to us than checking these off. Even if only 1 or 2 of these criteria appeal to you, and you really want this job, we want to hear from you.

Interested? Great! Here's what you should know:
