Movement Labs employees receive excellent health, dental, and vision benefits and unlimited Paid Time Off. We are a fully remote workplace. 

About Contest Every Race & the Rural Power Lab

Did you know that in up to 75% of the U.S.’ elected offices, Republicans run without opposition? Since 2018, Contest Every Race (CER) has quietly worked with State Democratic parties and other partners to recruit over 190,000 new potential candidates - and unseat over 2,000 Republican elected officials who would have otherwise gone unchallenged. 70% of our recruited candidates are women or people of color, and 48% win their races. In 2022, we recruited over 65,000 potential candidates. 

We also work in over 380 rural counties to directly invest in progressive leaders and build power locally. We’ve recruited thousands of volunteers, hosted over thousands events, and contacted millions of rural voters. We have granted $75,000+ in 2022 to 70 rural Democratic county parties for completing direct voter contact actions, resulting in 50,000+ doors knocked, 150+ events with 4,000+ attendees, 700+ 1-1s in a month, and more. Our program has continued to grow, and we seek an Organizing Associate to be the primary point person for rural county committee leaders, and coach, train and support them with their local organizing.
