  • Implement feedback from cross-functional teams and quickly adapt to changing news cycles and polling results.
  • Communicate with diverse groups, work with a multicultural workforce, and bring a sensitivity and appreciation of cultural differences.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • 5+ years of experience as a writer in an ad agency, entertainment, media or political/non-profit environment.
  • A strong portfolio that demonstrates high-level, conceptual thinking and the ability to develop and execute high-level work for diverse audiences.
  • A passion for storytelling and the ability to translate strategy into compelling, narrative-driven content.
  • Strong presentation skills, with the ability to pitch and sell your creative ideas to larger internal teams.
  • An interest in progressive politics, and an understanding of, or desire to learn, the nuances of political campaigns.
  • Deep and unyielding desire to defeat Donald Trump at the ballot box in November.
