Frequently cited statistics show that historical biases in hiring lead to less applications from women and underrepresented groups unless they have 100% of the qualifications. GatherDC is committed to removing bias in hiring; as such, we encourage you to break that statistic and apply. No one ever meets 100% of the qualifications! We look forward to your application.
WHO WE ARE
GatherDC is the central platform for post-college/pre-family Jewish life across the DC-area and is building one of the most dynamic and inclusive cities for millennial and Gen Z Jewish life. We strengthen the fabric of Jewish life throughout the DMV, facilitating innovative opportunities for meaningful and relevant Jewish learning and stewarding relationships to help Jews in their 20s and 30s connect to Jewish organizations and to each other. We work with the rich network of Jewish communal synagogues, JCCs, and institutions to help them best serve young Jewish adults, and we champion relationship-based engagement, understanding that a thriving Jewish ecosystem is only as strong as the relationships we build with individuals and with the wider community.
WHO YOU ARE
The Digital Content Manager will be a key member of GatherDC’s two-person communications team and will drive GatherDC’s online presence. Your days will be spent creating, coordinating, overseeing, and strategizing all content curation, distribution, and engagement across multiple platforms, with a strong emphasis on social media, blog posts, and email communications. You have a strong background in social media for brands - you might even have a degree or specialization in digital marketing! Being able to digest our brand voice and use it to generate original media, copy, and content for a variety of online platforms and channels is key. As a result of your work, DMV Jews in their 20s and 30s will feel seen by and reflected in GatherDC’s digital space, and GatherDC will have a strong digital presence where people come to engage with Gather’s unique flavor of Jewish content you create and share. Through your work, Jewish DC will feel and be connected to communities, individuals, experiences, institutions, and organizations that help them realize the Jewish lives they want to live.
