Unify America is a nonpartisan nonprofit on a mission to replace politics with problem-solving. We are seeking a Director of Partnerships who will identify and build partnerships with organizations around the country that drive participation in Unify America’s programs, and who will help us advance our mission to find solutions to our nation’s ills, and save our democracy.
Saving democracy? Seriously?
Reasonable question. We’ll get to that. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter, has strong communication skills, is a great organizer, and passionate about bringing Americans together across divides to reduce polarization and build community.
Let’s get back to the saving democracy part.
Well, we are on the way to proving that the vast majority of Americans (over 90%) share many of the same goals for the country. If that sounds crazy, then let us give you an example: we demonize each other over gun control legislation, but gun control isn’t the goal, it’s a tactic. Reducing violence is the goal, and most of us want that. We don’t realize that for most political issues we’re just arguing about tactics or even less productively, political personalities.
Our long-term quest is ambitious: bringing together tens of thousands of Americans, including legislators, to identify and implement an ambitious and shared solution to one of the many national problems that have bedeviled Congress and the country for decades.
We aspire to build an audience and a community aligned with our mission, ready to grow individually and together as a county. That’s where you come in. We need your help to discover, build, celebrate, and communicate with that audience.
Tell me more...What’s the role?
You’ll support the marketing and outreach teams. More specifically, you’ll:
Build digital marketing graphics for Unify America and its partners
Write marketing and communications copy (from social posts and email newsletters to blogs and flyers)
Support social media accounts, from scheduling to fan engagement and message response
Interview participants within the Unify America community about their experiences
Build and edit share-worthy video snippets for social media
Support Unify America’s digital marketing plans including helping to manage social ads and Google Ads
Make copy or image changes to the Unify America website
Support public and media relations work with press research and relationship building
Help the team with creative brainstorming, research projects, and media planning
Are there specific qualifications?
Yes. You have:
A passion and an eye for good design
A writers' love of well-edited sentences and precise grammar
Experience managing and growing social media accounts
Experience with digital advertising
A creative problem-solving brain. We’re looking for someone who is positive and can figure out how to get to “Yes!”
Flexibility and a good sense of humor - it’s kind of what we’re all about.
A commitment to “big tent” diversity and belonging.
Strong project management skills, including the ability to lead others to manage work plans, timelines, and budgets; outstanding attention to detail.
The ability to welcome feedback. The way we work at Unify America requires that we all are comfortable giving and receiving direct feedback gracefully. Our motto: we must be honest and kind simultaneously.
We work remotely, and we welcome candidates from anywhere within the United States. In fact, we value having a team from different areas of the country. However, there may be travel required from time to time.
I’m interested. How do I apply?
Great! Follow the link to upload your resume and portfolio, and also write us a cover letter that includes your salary expectations. Give us three reasons why you’d be great for the job and if you like, share your political beliefs (liberal? conservative? something else entirely?). Most importantly, be yourself (yes, really!).
Unify America is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging at all levels of the organization in all of its forms. This includes a commitment to having a team filled with people at every point on the political spectrum.
