  • Overview

    We live in a period of unprecedented progress, including exciting advancements in technology and culture. Many have benefitted from this progress, while others were left behind. At Stand Together, we see this as the biggest challenge of our time, and we're ready to tackle it, but we can't do it alone. We recruit, train, and invest in people who are capable of building movements to impact real societal change. Are you ready for the most critical challenge of your career?

     

    We're looking for a strategic, creative, and passionate Creative Strategist to join the Stand Together Campaign Team. In this role, you'll be responsible for capturing hearts and minds to build movements that drive change. With a laser focus on key target audiences, you'll create and help drive effective and innovative multi-faceted campaigns that inspire action – action that will help people improve their lives. The runway is open for you to be creative on multiple platforms with groundbreaking content – the only limitation is your imagination.

     

    The Stand Together Campaign Team harnesses the power of bottom-up solutions to build movements. We have made significant progress in reforming areas like education, poverty, criminal justice, and so much more. We believe effective movements educate, motivate, and mobilize target audiences to impact change and do so in a way that changes how broader society views a specific issue. Our team delivers on building inspiring campaigns that transform people's lives, so we're looking for someone special to fill this role. To give you a taste of what we mean, here's an example of one of our recent projects on immigration.

     

    The Stand Together culture is guided by the principles of integrity, humility, respect, knowledge, and transformation. We prioritize professional growth and lifelong learning, so we reward our employees for the value they create. This environment gives you the room to make a meaningful and lasting impact that will help millions of people and transform society.
