MoveOn is a diverse and vibrant community of millions of people working together to create progressive change in America. We are an innovative campaigning organization that supports people throughout the country to take action through driving impactful campaigns that influence the behavior of people and institutions, shape the outcomes of elections, and expand the realities of what’s possible. We organize to challenge entrenched power, while pursuing economic, racial, and social justice and a vision of a country in which everyone can thrive.
MoveOn has a vital role to play in securing progress during the Biden-Harris administration, and in organizing the grassroots to set up election wins in 2021, 2022, and beyond. We are building a powerful, multiracial, and economic populistmovement, and fighting for progress on health care, climate, racial justice and more. In service of that mission, in 2021 and beyond, MoveOn will drive impactful, movement-connected, multichannel, nimble campaigns aimed at impact.

This role will work closely with campaign directors, organizers, designers, and engineers to turn member feedback into real products and will be critical for setting the direction of our tools to fuel our campaigning in 2021 and beyond.
Our campaign directors can drive the most impactful campaigns when we develop technology that scales our campaigns and organizing, while maintaining a personalized connection. This Product Manager role will operate at an important nexus and bridge critical teams that must work well together to best organize and empower our members.
