We’re looking for a great writer who can build and engage our diverse audience of supporters, activists, and domestic workers online -- including nannies, house cleaners, and care workers across the country. Specifically, you should be:
- A sharp writer, primarily for social media content that engages workers and activists. Digital writing for social media and other online platforms is the focus of this position.
- A native or fluent Spanish speaker who can write in both languages as well as translate text from Spanish to English and English to Spanish.
- Metrics-driven and familiar with online metrics and reporting. We have ambitious goals around the numbers of supporters, activists, and domestic workers we’re looking to reach, so you should be comfortable with social media metrics and analytics such as Facebook Insights, Twitter Insights, and Google Analytics, and know how to use them to drive social media strategy and tactics.
- Skilled at writing for a range of digital mediums. While most of your work will be around social media and online ads, you’ll likely do some writing for SMS, email, and website content.
- Able to think like a marketer about what will grab our audiences and bring them in.
- Able to think like an organizer about how we keep our audiences of domestic workers and activists engaged after our initial contact with them, and to engage with our members and activists to understand what drives them.
The ideal candidate has experience managing social media and/or doing online marketing for a nonprofit, campaign, or company. However, we’re open to a range of different backgrounds, so let us know why you think you would be a good fit for this position and what you would bring to it!
Applications should be submitted here. Submit a cover letter about your background, why you’re interested in the position, and why you believe you’re the right fit for the job. Attach a resume (with a phone number where we can contact you) and a sample of your writing in English and Spanish. Because this platform doesn't allow writing sample uploads, please attach your writing sample to your resume or cover letter.
Women, People of Color, People with Disabilities and LGBTQ people strongly encouraged to apply. This position will remain open until filled.
