Campaign Director

Location: United States

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

UltraViolet is hiring a Campaign Director to help us drive cultural and political change to advance an intersectional feminist agenda.

About UltraViolet:

In 2012, UltraViolet was launched to harness the collective power of millions of people to advance women's equity through rapid-response digital organizing.

Since then, UltraViolet has been the premier national organization elevating all of the issues that impact women's lives across identity--from intimate partner and state violence to health care to economic policy--to a national audience. Our goal has been to expose sexism and rape culture by using rapid-response campaigns to create public accountability and advocate for solutions.

To do that, over the last eight years, we've built and are sustaining a community of 1.2 million committed and engaged activists in every state and congressional district across the country and ignited a new wave of feminist activism.

Moving ahead, UltraViolet will focus on building an intersectional feminist community online by creating compelling stories and offering ways to take action that center the voices and perspectives of women of color, Indigenous women, and LGBTQ people. It is these stories--from our members and our staff--that will drive demand for the kind of changes women need.

If fighting for a world beyond patriarchy, where people of all backgrounds and identities thrive with freedom and dignity, is your passion--UltraViolet is the organization for you! 

UltraViolet is an organization run by women, immigrants, people of color, Indigenous women, and LGBTQ+ people. Sexism disparately impacts us, and we strongly encourage people from these and other impacted communities to apply.

Job Description:

In 2019, UltraViolet broadened our strategic focus to include both large-scale, rapid response digital organizing as well as work focused on longer-term culture change and advocacy.

You should have a proven ability to run high-profile, mediagenic campaigns that engage hundreds of thousands of people, utilize rapid response campaign opportunities, and garner national media attention.
