350.org is looking to hire a talented campaign manager to help lead our work around the 2018 US elections at both 350.org, a 501c(3) organization and 350 Action, a 501(c)(4)4 organization.
In 2018, 350 Action aims to make climate change a top tier political issue, advance our demands for a just and equitable transition away from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy for all, mobilize the climate base, and challenge climate denialism and fossil fuel industry influence at all levels of government. The approach will lean heavily on innovative communications and digital organizing to find, inspire, and turn-out the millions of people in the United States who care about climate change but aren’t making it to the ballot box. In short: we want to become the go-to campaign for everyone who cares about the climate and wants to make an impact around the 2018 election.
At 350.org, you’ll work with a team of brilliant, fierce colleagues, tackling one of the greatest issues of our time, in a flexible and collaborative environment. Learn more about who we are, what we stand for, and where we’re going here.
