Textify Project Lead Berkeley, CA / Washington, D.C.

At Trilogy Interactive, we inspire movements. We tell stories that turn heads. We win progress when it matters the most. And now, we want you to join us! We are a team of dynamic, diverse and passionate progressives who work with some of the biggest names in Democratic movement  politics.

Do you love working with people to build long-term relationships? Do you wake up with big ideas you can’t wait to try out? Do you love text messaging campaigns, and have experience managing blast or P2P texting operations? Do you have experience managing projects to meet aggressive deadlines and goals?

If so, throw your hat in the ring and apply to be our newest Textify Project Lead in Berkeley, CA or Washington, DC. 

Textify is a text-messaging platform that combines the benefits of broadcast and peer-to-peer texting to supercharge fundraising for nonprofits and political campaigns alike. It is also leveraged by campaigns for advocacy and electoral outreach. 

RESPONSIBILITIES

As a Textify Project Lead, you will work with a team to deliver industry-leading results via Textify for a host of political, advocacy, and non-profit clients. Drawing on your experience with politics and project management, you will develop innovative digital advocacy, fundraising, and electoral campaigns utilizing the capabilities of Textify.

To accomplish that, our Project Leads need to:

  • Manage client relationships -- from conference calls to budgets -- and collaborate and coordinate with an internal team of digital and communications specialists.

  • Oversee Textify content development and creative production, reporting, budgeting, and optimization of clients' campaign plans.

  • Provide final internal approval for all client deliverables and manage the client approval process.

  • Advise and collaborate with Trilogy's Technology team on significant client project components including Textify campaign data, testing, and reporting.

  • Research, test, and implement new Textify strategies and tactics.

  • Leverage relationships for business development, participate in marketing and proposal development, and represent Trilogy at industry conferences.

  • Complete timesheets on a daily basis.

REQUIRED SKILLS

People with all types of experiences, backgrounds, and interests can excel at this position. But here are a few traits most successful Textify Project Lead candidates will bring to the table:

  • You have experience managing broadcast or P2P SMS programs.

  • You are organized: You find pleasure in guiding multiple people through dozens of tasks and assignments at once without ever missing a beat, and enjoy developing systems to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks.

  • You love data: You enjoy tracking, analyzing and optimizing programs based on what the data tells you.

  • You are creative: You love to write (or edit!) and you’re always coming up with new strategic ideas to try out.

  • You are never satisfied: You aren't just interested in checking boxes; rather, you continually push for new strategies that improve results.

  • You love building relationships: Your communications in person or by phone/video and email aren't just about the next task, but show concern for developing long-term rapport with clients, partners, and fellow team members.

  • You've got a political gut: Clients trust you because they know you get it: the politics, the context, the positions, and the issues that drive them.

  • You are curious: What's the newest digital trend? How can we use today's news in our work? What's going on in a client's community?

  • You are a leader: You take an interest in the personal and professional growth of your fellow team members. You contribute to a positive workplace culture.

  • You have experience: Ideally 2-5 years, either in Democratic movement politics, organizing, or digital media.
