Kairos is working for liberation at the intersection of technology, racial justice, and democracy. We believe we can both bring organizing into the 21st century while transforming the internet into a place where everyone can thrive. To be successful, we challenge ourselves to live our values and vision as we build the world we want. Joy, laughter, fun, and rigor are the ingredients we include as we work toward our vision together.
The Kairos Organizing team works under the guidance of Kairos’ twin northstars of understanding the nature of technology and building governing power to shape the internet. Kairos Organizers work to combine our deep digital expertise with our partners’ strategies to find new, impactful ways to build power across our movement. We draw learnings from our work with partners to share what it takes to contend for power in this new digital era.
Someone who is a great fit for this team is deeply invested in developing organizing and campaigning strategies that reflect the 21st century powerbuilding landscape, developing online and offline tactics that build on and reinforce each other. Organizing team members have a strong familiarity and fluency with organizing strategy and are eager to build a new methodology and approach to organizing online.
What we’re looking for
Nice to haves:
We’re sharing this as a joint job description because we’re looking for great folks whose experience and passion for organizing fits our team at Kairos. Through the interview process, we’ll determine which role we believe you are best suited for and will communicate that early in the process. Regardless of the position, Kairos is a highly collaborative organization where folks work across projects and across teams.
How to know which role is right for you:
Salary and benefits
This is a full-time, exempt salaried position. Kairos staff work roughly 40 hours a week, with the understanding that the schedule must flex to accommodate the necessary ebbs and flows of the work, such as multi-day training and breaking news moments that are crucial for our communities. The salary range for these positions is included in the above table describing the differences between the two roles.
Through our fiscal sponsor, Allied Media Projects, we offer a competitive benefits package including generous vacation; full health, dental, vision, and flex benefits; 403b program; ongoing training opportunities; compensation for local co-working space (when it is safe to go to those spaces), and incidentals related to the role.
Start Date and Application
We’re aiming for this role to begin on or before July 18th, 2022. You don’t need to write a cover letter in order to apply—just fill out this application and upload your resume.
Your primary residence may be located anywhere in the United States; current staff are based in Woodstock (NY), Durham (NC), Chicago, Detroit, the Bay Area, and Seattle. Occasional organization-sponsored travel for conferences, Kairos trainings, partner meetings, and face-to-face staff gatherings will be required when it is safe to do so.
Allied Media Projects is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, ethnicity, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, religion, HIV serostatus, disability, height, weight, veteran status or marital status.
