Campaign Director

Location: (Multiple states)

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

We aren't currently hiring for a Campaign Director but we're always interested in hearing from talented campaigners. Submit your application here and we'll be in touch when we have an opening.

We’re seeing a moment in our nation’s history unlike any in decades. From the Women’s March to the protest over the Muslim ban, the Trump administration’s outright sexism, racism, and hate have spurred historic levels of action in the fight for equality -- and women are leading the charge. It’s urgent that we harness this unprecedented energy -- and at UltraViolet, we’re expanding our campaign capacity to make that happen, including hiring a Campaign Director.

UltraViolet’s mission is to fight sexism and expands women’s rights in politics, government, media, and pop culture. Since 2012, we’ve worked in four core issue areas -- ending violence against women, making progress toward economic security for women and families, ensuring access to full and affordable health care services, and calling out sexism in politics and media. We’ve won victories like getting Facebook to add the first woman to its board, forcing Netflix to expand benefits for hourly workers, exposing the NFL’s history of covering up domestic abuse, and defeating countless abortion restrictions.

Since the 2016 election, UltraViolet’s one million members have been more energized than ever before, helping to stop the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, exposing the sexism and racism of Trump’s cabinet, putting an extremist Supreme Court nominee on thin ice, and calling out major corporations like Amazon and the LPGA for financially supporting the sexual predator in chief. Looking ahead, our work is only beginning -- and it’s time to grow our team to meet this moment.

About the Campaign Director position

The UltraViolet Campaign Director is a senior leader at the center of our fights for equality and against sexism. The Campaign Director identifies and runs high-profile, rapid-response campaigns that engage hundreds of thousands of people and garner national media attention.

In addition, the Campaign Director is responsible for creating the story arc of our work around current and new campaigns while developing the campaign plan from start to finish. Candidates must have the ability to spot a moment, the willingness to go after any target, and the determination to keep pushing, even in the face of long odds. We are looking for someone who can spot an opportunity at 9 a.m., test the campaign by mid-morning, and launch that same day.

A successful candidate will have:

  • An instinct for breakout campaigns, an eye for media-worthiness, and a sharp sense of strategy.
  • Experience running campaigns from start to finish, including building partnerships and coalitions, creating compelling and urgent messages, analyzing metrics, and leading on-the-ground protests and events.
  • A demonstrated ability to be nimble and move quickly.
  • Pride at being creative, entrepreneurial, detail-oriented, flexible, and an exceptional writer.
  • The ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment.
  • A sense of humor and the desire to work with and help lead our small (and mighty) team.

A successful Campaign Director will also help build our organization, both internally and externally. UltraViolet members have made a real and lasting change over the course of the four years since we started, but there is so much more to do. This position is a real chance to help create and tell our story and build for the future.
