Who is Kairos?

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.

Our work

  • Build relationships between Kairos and state and local powerbuilding organizations to develop integrated digital organizing strategies that build power.
  • Work deeply with partners to establish the methodology and approach for digital organizing and campaigning that builds power at the state and local level.
  • Build and share recommendations for organizing strategy across the field.
  • Develop digital organizing strategy through large-scale trainings series, leadership-development fellowships, and state-based cohorts.
  • Develop strong relationships with movement partners, developing clear feedback loops that shape Kairos’ organizing work toward greater impact and leverage.
  • Constantly draw connections between our vision of a publicly governed internet, how it impacts movement partners and organizing across all issues.

Job requirements

What we’re looking for

  • Community organizing and/or union organizing experience.
  • Experience with building and contesting for power in digital spaces, and an orientation toward movement building that centers relationships while striving for maximum impact.
  • An analysis of powerbuilding at multiple levels; from grassroots organizing to national advocacy
  • Skilled at managing multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Self-reflective, rigorous – knows what their growth edges are, embraces working at those growth edges and moving through them
  • Direct and collaboration-oriented communicator
  • Holds impeccable personal boundaries
  • Comfort with remote work and demonstrated ability to be self-motivated and disciplined

Nice to haves:

  • A strong analysis of the internet, platforms, tech policy, and what it takes to build stronger tech governance.
  • Experience using movement tech platforms like Action Kit, EveryAction, etc.
  • Experience with training adults in large and small groups.

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:

Organizing Director

  • 3-5 years of community organizing and/or union organizing experience
  • Run highly complex programs (organizing experiments with multiple state partners, training series, fellowships) with several phases, owning high-level external relationships. 
  • Synthesize analysis of organizing methodologies across programs and lead communication internally and externally.
  • Salary range: $80,000–90,000

Organizing Manager

  • 2-3 years of community organizing and/or union organizing experience. 
  • Own distinct projects within larger Organizing programs, manage relationships with state partners, develop and execute organizing strategies.
  • Draw learnings from the projects you own to contribute to team analysis. 
  • Salary range: $70,000–80,000

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.
