SUMMARY

Beto for Texas is hiring field organizers for the 2018 election cycle.

As a field organizer, your mission will be to build a grassroots voter contact program. You’ll recruit and train volunteers to lead canvasses, run phone banks, host organizing meetings, and even open volunteer-run campaign offices.

This is not a standard field organizing job. Your geographic region might be the size of a small state. You may not have a campaign office to work out of. You’ll use Slack and Google Apps as much as you use VAN.

This position reports to a Field Organizing Manager.

  • Traveling relentlessly within your assigned region.
  • Recruiting, training and supervising statewide teams of volunteers who remotely support the voter contact program.
  • Becoming a super user of key productivity (Google Apps, Slack, Maestro, etc.) and voter contact (Relay, LiveVox, VAN) technologies and patiently teaching volunteers to use them.
  • Meticulous daily reporting.

QUALIFICATIONS

While we encourage everyone who is interested to apply, great candidates will:

  • Believe in volunteer leadership. Volunteers are at the center of everything we do, and everything you do will contribute to developing volunteer leadership.
  • Have experience volunteering on a political campaign.
