Position Summary

Organization Overview

Do you want to ensure that progressive organizations have access to the best possible data, technology, and technical expertise? We know movement organizing and advocacy are more urgent than ever and many organizations and activists cannot easily access the tools to scale their work.

Launched in 2018, The Movement Cooperative (TMC) is a nonprofit founded with the aim of creating a cooperative community addressing these structural challenges. Currently, our membership stands at nearly 75 national member organizations and 500 state-based organizations covered under our licenses. We leverage the collective purchasing power of our membership to secure cooperatively held data and technology licenses shared across membership and invest in common infrastructure like technical staff to support our members in their work. TMC is also a member cooperative — our board is elected by and made up of our member organizations.

Position Description

We are looking for a pool of Contractors to support our team throughout the cycle while several of our staff expand their families (yay!) Our team currently stands at sixteen team members, and we highly value collaboration and teamwork.

TMC membership gives organizations full access to our data warehouse and analytics platform and unlimited access to national voter/consumer files. The Data & Technology team’s role is to provide the technical assistance and expertise that our member organizations need to get started and then ongoing support to achieve their goals and maximize their impact.

A successful Contractor will have:

  • Dedication to our members and furthering their reach and impact, along with broader progressive issues and campaigns
  • Moderate or better SQL skills
  • Experience interacting with and analyzing the voter file, census data and/or another large datasets
  • Project management experience, including delegation, managing up and managing expectations for themselves and projects
  • Able to communicate and collaborate within a team, other departments, as well as, vendors, partners, etc.
  • Comfort communicating via remote work tools like Slack and Zoom
  • Passionate about diversity, equity and inclusion and a commitment to incorporating these values into your everyday work
  • Experience working on campaigns, electorally-focused, or advocacy organizations, with at least one full cycle in a data-related role
  • Experience using the Civis Platform
  • Experience with data visualization

Some discrete projects a contractor may be asked to work on:

  • Using Civis to create an outreach universe for an organization
  • Creating a dashboard to visualize data from a TMC tool that a member is using
  • Doing analysis of the targetsmart or catalist voterfile
  • Supporting an organization in setting up smartVAN
  • Assisting in troubleshooting issues with our most-used tools (Civis, VAN, Periscope)
  • Setting up data syncs using directions documented in a team knowledge base

This role does not have formal education requirements.

Compensation

TMC will compensate contractors at $135 an hour.

Security Considerations

Contractors are expected to install TMC’s security software, JAMF Now, on any computers they perform TMC work from. If unable or unwilling to install this software, contractors will need to sign off on and abide by the policies outlined in our contractor bring your own device policy.
