Development Associate

Flip the West

Flip the West is seeking a Development Associate with a strong dedication to our mission, which is to retain and expand the Democratic majorities in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. This could be a full or part time position.

Flip the West is an independent political action committee, focused on mobilizing grassroots volunteers to contact voters.   Our volunteers write postcards, make calls, send texts, use Instagram, and knock on doors to win Congressional  (House and Senate) races around the country.

We support Democratic candidates, and oppose Republicans. (www.flipthewest.com). 

In the 2020 election cycle we played a major role in 8 US Senate races, and helped win 4 of them. In the 2018 election cycle (as Flip the 14) we focused on California’s 14 Republican-held  House seats and helped flip 7 of them.

We work with more than 100 organized volunteer political action groups (our Flip Force) such as chapters of Indivisible, and also more than 40,000 individual volunteers around the country.  These volunteers made over 13 million voter contacts in the 2020 general election cycle, including the Georgia runoffs.

Our fundraising is mainly from our volunteers and individual donors, although we held on-line fundraising events last year with Congress Members Adam Schiff, Katy Porter and Ted Lieu; California Lt. Gov Eleni Kounalakis, Frances McDormand and Joel Coen, and other celebrities.  We organized a volunteer training webinar featuring House Speaker Pelosi and other Democratic luminaries.

We are open to junior or more experienced professionals, with salary DOE.

●       cultivate donor relationships

Most of our staff is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and our office is located in Oakland, CA, but our volunteers are nationwide.  We prefer that the Development Associate reside in the Bay Area , but we are willing to consider candidates anywhere in the US.

We are seeking a commitment through the November 2022 midterm election. The anticipated start date is April 1, but we are willing to be flexible for the right candidate.

Flip the West is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and others who identify as nonwhite, people with disabilities, women, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community are encouraged to  apply. The job is currently remote, but once we are past the COVID pandemic, some travel for in-person meetings and events may be required.

Salary range $40,000 - $60,000 FTE, depending on experience.
