Job Description

ioby is a national non-profit crowdfunding platform that mobilizes neighbors across the country to become powerful leaders who plan, fund and make positive change in their neighborhoods. We are creating a future in which our neighborhoods are shaped by the powerful good ideas of our own neighbors. 

ioby seeks a Leader Success Strategist to join our Leader Success Team. The Leader Success Team provides fundraising coaching to ioby Leaders (novice and experienced fundraisers from across the country) and helps enhance our online and offline platform to better serve ioby Leaders. The Leader Success Team works closely with the City Action Strategist Team, a team located in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Memphis and Pittsburgh to deliver our place-based strategy of building the fundraising capacity of residents. The Leader Success Strategist must be currently located in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, or Memphis with current local relationships to build synergy between the work of the two teams. 

Reporting to the Success Manager, the Strategist will work 1:1 with ioby Leaders to ensure their success through relationship building and delivery of ioby's 1:1 coaching model. He/she/they will own relationships from beginning-to-end, working with ioby Leaders to understand, adopt and successfully leverage ioby’s crowdfunding services and product for their specific fundraising needs. Responsibilities include providing proactive and tailored fundraising advice; direct 1:1 communication and feedback to ioby Leaders about their online story and fundraising plan; customer relationship and account management; technical assistance; data collection and activity tracking using ioby's backend and CRM systems, all with the goal to positively influence the ioby Leader experience through their successful crowdfunding campaign. 

As a tech nonprofit, ioby has a fast-paced environment that constantly evolves to the next level of improved service to ioby Leaders around the country. You’ll be expected to bring new ideas and strategies and bring an attitude of continuous improvement to contribute to our culture of innovation. For the right candidate, this direct customer-interfacing role is an exciting opportunity to be part of a mission-driven, community-based organization that is contributing to a broad movement of resident-led neighborhood development.

This job will be based in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit or Memphis and will be work-from-home until the pandemic is under control. In non-pandemic times the job will require occasional domestic travel. ioby’s regular business hours are 9am - 6pm EST Monday through Friday, but this job will require some work outside regular business hours. You’ll be expected to manage your own balanced workweek based on the demands of the job. For more information about ioby, visit ioby.org.
