Vote Forward builds tools to encourage average citizens to register and show up to vote. We work to increase the participation of traditionally under-represented groups in the electorate, and to engage the public at large by supporting the efforts of our volunteers on that project.

We’re seeking a Growth Manager to help increase the reach and scale of our programs. The ideal candidate has superb written and verbal communication skills, a keen understanding of marketing strategy, and the ability to engage deeply, both qualitatively and quantitatively, with our user base. The Growth Manager will report to the Executive Director.

Since 2018, tens of thousands of grassroots volunteers have used the Vote Forward platform to write hand-written letters to more than three million prospective voters to encourage them to register to vote and turn out for elections. As Growth Manager at Vote Forward, you will help maximize the impact of these efforts over the long term. This is an opportunity to put your marketing skills to use to have an enormous positive impact on American democracy.

Vote Forward is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit with a core non-partisan mission. We’re an affiliate of Swing Left, a grassroots movement of hundreds of thousands of people across the country that helps volunteers find the most impactful things they can do to help Democrats win the most important elections.

Who We’re Looking For

  • You have experience orchestrating complex marketing and growth efforts.
  • You’re able to marshal qualitative and quantitative tools to understand user behavior.
  • You have exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
  • You have 5 or more years of professional experience.
  • You’re a “roll-up-your-sleeves” kind of person.
  • You have a commitment to our mission of strengthening American democracy.

What You’ll Do

  • Develop a clear and rigorous set of metrics to understand and instrument our “funnel”: how volunteers find and engage with us and what obstacles they face along the way.
  • Use data from a variety of sources to create and confirm or refute your own theories about how to encourage volunteer activism.
  • Deploy all the channels at our disposal to plan, construct, execute, and measure digital marketing and communications efforts internally and with external partners to find new volunteers and activate existing ones.
  • Collaborate with writers, graphic and user interface designers, and other stakeholders to build great campaigns.
  • Collaborate with product and engineering teams to help identify and scope out growth-directed products and features.
  • Take full responsibility and ownership of the challenge of increasing adoption of our volunteer tools in the world.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced digital marketer or growth specialist to help build tools that will be used by large numbers of volunteers to have a big impact on our civic fabric in a crucial period for American democracy.

We welcome all applicants regardless of age, citizenship, gender identity or expression, national origin, pregnancy status, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other differences.
