Digital Campaign Intern

Location: Remote

To Apply: Send a resume along with a note about your story and why you would be a good fit for this position

TextOut is seeking interns to join our team.  These are remote positions that can be based anywhere in the continental U.S. Hourly, part-time, and full-time openings are both available. Pay is dependent on experience. No benefits. You must be able to commit to this position through the November 2019 elections.

About You
  • You are 18 or older and have a passion for listening and connecting with voters across the political spectrum, even those who might not agree with you.

  • You may or may not be in school, pursuing a degree, or have a degree. It’s not required.

  • You have access to a reliable desktop or laptop computer. (Our system doesn’t work on a smartphone!)

  • You can commit no less than 40 hours per week to saving democracy for a full-time internship, and no less than 20 hours per week for a part-time internship.

  • You want to build connections with other like-minded progressives around the US.

  • You adapt well to new technology and are a self-starter willing to teach yourself new software platforms.

  • You’re into the idea of working and communicating remotely with your teammates using programs like Slack for chat and Asana for project management.

  • You can work independently and are a natural problem solver but are also comfortable asking questions when you get stuck.  

  • You are determined; you don’t stop until you get the information you need until your voter’s questions are answered, or until your volunteers have what they need to do their best work.

  • You believe in the power of conversation and connection to change hearts and minds.
