Organization Overview

Results for America (RFA) is the leading, national nonprofit organization helping policymakers at all levels of government harness the power of evidence and data to solve the world’s greatest challenges. Our mission is to make investing in what works the “new normal,” so that, one day, all government leaders use rigorous evidence and quality data to inform important policy and funding decisions. We believe that data-driven and evidence-based policy decisions could significantly increase the impact of the over $1 trillion that governments spend annually to advance economic mobility and racial equity.

Founded in 2012, RFA spent its first three years partnering with policy innovators to build the credibility of evidence-based policymaking, securing early and important wins in education, expanding its work to multiple levels of government, and driving awareness and demand through carefully orchestrated education and communication campaigns. During its second phase (2015-2018), RFA worked to demonstrate the power of evidence-based policymaking in ways that resonate with an even broader universe of elected officials and policymakers. Now in its third phase of work, RFA intends to demonstrate that governments at all levels can make faster, more lasting progress in accelerating economic mobility for residents when they use evidence and data in decision-making. By creating specific issue-area wins, RFA will further cement support for evidence-based policymaking among all policymakers as the “new normal.”


Position Overview

RFA’s strategic communications team supports outreach, programming, and branding for all of RFA’s federal, state, and local efforts. This position will focus on local government communications, including but not limited to What Works Cities (WWC), a Bloomberg Philanthropies supported effort which helps local governments improve residents’ lives by using data and evidence effectively to tackle pressing challenges. WWC is entering a new phase of work, focused on increasing the number of cities it supports in the U.S., as well as expanding internationally. In addition, RFA’s local government portfolio is broadening its scope to support communities in developing evidence-based, results-driven practices, policies, programs, and systems that advance economic mobility and racial equity

To this end, Results for America is seeking an energetic, creative Strategic Communications and Marketing Manager with strong writing and digital media skills to support its current goals and to make progress on its longer-term ambitions.
