About RepresentUs

RepresentUs is the nation’s leading right-left anti-corruption organization. We bring together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to secure crucial victories that are defending our Republic and fixing America’s corrupt political system.

But what it means for you, potential coworker, is that you feel what we feel when you wake up every day: a strong sense of purpose that binds you to the spirit of this nation, and an overwhelming sense that you should do something about it. And you want to work with people who feel the same. RepresentUs is a carefully curated mix of seasoned political campaigners, policy wonks, advertising experts, designers, and engineers. We’re not a startup, but we’ve got startup DNA: we’re nimble, constantly learning and iterating, and we push ourselves to push the envelope—to ignore “industry standards” and set a new standard.

Democracy is for all, and at RepresentUs, so is our workplace. That's why we're an Equal Opportunity Employer. We are committed to evolving our staff and board to reflect the full diversity of America and the communities we aim to serve. As we seek the best of the best to join our ranks, we welcome applications from all walks of life (including but not limited to BIPOC/people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates) because we know that our democracy-building work has greater impact when we center diverse backgrounds, perspectives and ideologies. Once on the team, we encourage our teammates to bring their whole selves to work. We’re continually working to increase our cultural awareness, strengthen our approach to equity, and foster a climate of inclusion in all that we do. We invite you to belong with us! Read our statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion here.

We have passed 124 Anti-Corruption Acts and Resolutions in cities & states across the country (and counting!) Come win with us!

Current Influencer Strategy

RepresentUs currently works with an impressive roster of A-List talent to create content, amplify our message, and inspire Americans to take action to fight corruption. In the past year alone, we’ve launched campaigns with Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom (Transmissions from the Future), Ed Helms (Save the Gerrymanders), Leslie Odom Jr. (#WaitForIt), and the star-studded, viral video Naked Ballots. We’ve also created the highly successful Unbreaking America series that enlists stars like Jennifer Lawrence to break down how our political system is no longer working for the average American—and what we can do to fix this problem. 

Our strategy is heavily focused on maintaining relationships with the celebrities mentioned above, as well as those on our Cultural Council. We rely exclusively on members of our executive team to maintain these relationships and connect with celebs on an ad hoc basis when an influencer collaboration or opportunity arises. To date, almost all of our influencer work has been with celebrities who are interested in donating their time and efforts to the RepresentUs mission.
