Unite America seeks a full-time Digital Director. The Digital Director is responsible for creating content that tells the story of our movement, communicates our message, and engages our supporters across many platforms.
In serving as a key voice for our movement, the ideal candidate is already politically engaged and passionate about our mission of political reform. We’re looking for someone who is a capable and creative storyteller, and who can translate a high volume of new momentum in the movement into compelling content that can break through the noise online.
The Digital Director will be based in Denver, Colorado and report to Unite America’s Executive Director. This is a full-time role with full benefits; pay will be commensurate with experience. The desired start date is August 1, 2018.
Here’s what you’ll do each day:
Tell stories. Our movement is made up of voters, activists, candidates, and influencers. They each have a story. You will be responsible for sharing those stories in a way that moves people to action.
Produce content. You will be the de facto voice of our organization. Every day, you will create content to strengthen that voice by writing emails, blogging, designing collateral, and posting on social media.
Think creatively. We need big ideas, small ideas, and everything in between. You will identify, pitch, and develop content opportunities as well as identify areas of need and recommend new communications strategies and engagement programs.
- Organize. You will work with our Field Manager to help bring our community up a ladder of engagement, so we are building leaders in our movement not just lists for our emails.
Here's what we are looking for:
Experience. At minimum, three years of professional experience. Background leading a digital program and writing copy for political candidates or nonprofit organizations is required.

Strong writer. We’re optimizing for candidates who have drafted, published and managed a wide range of multimedia content, most importantly for email campaigns and social media platforms.
A leader who values personal integrity in the work they do and can multi-task, project manage, and execute at a high level while maintaining a high standard of professionalism.
