Want to empower millions of Americans to stand up for the progressive values that matter most?

Come be a part of the MoveOn team!
Why MoveOn | MoveOn Benefits | Our Offices | The MoveOn Way MoveOn Careers


For 17 years, MoveOn has been making waves across the country, fighting for the progressive values that matter most–even when no one else would. Now we’re looking for superstars to join our team and help us win some huge and exciting fights in 2016 and beyond.

This year we’ll continue running a powerful open platform that empowers our members to fight for the issues that matter most to them, stand in solidarity with Americans across the country in the movement for Black lives, break ground with new organizing strategies and technology, and much more. In short: we’re going big, and we need the best people around to help us do it.

moneysign2Get paid a competitive salary

We offer our staff a solid wage that allows them to pay their bills and provide for their families. You certainly won’t join the 1% while working at MoveOn–but we have a feeling that isn’t your style anyway.

medical Go to the doctor and even the “dreaded” dentist

As an organization that fought tirelessly to support President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, you might expect us to have world-class healthcare benefits for our staff–and we do. We cover full medical, dental and vision care costs for employees and their children, as well as partial coverage for spouses and domestic partners.

401k Save for retirement

MoveOn offers 401(k) retirement benefits, for when you’re done changing the world (for a living, at least).

umbrella2Take a vacation

We want you to take time off! We work hard and fight for important causes, but we also realize the need to take time to recharge. That’s why we offer four weeks of paid vacation per year, 10 sick days, 6 flexible holidays, and 4 all-staff holidays, on top of the flexible schedule that comes with working in a virtual office.

babyHave a family

As a vocal supporter of paid family leave MoveOn recognizes the importance of family bonding and offers generous paid time off for mothers and fathers as their families expand. We want you take the time you need to be a parent and offer 12 weeks paid full-time off.

gymTake a health and wellness break

We want our staff to be happy and healthy. We provide all our staff with paid health and wellness benefits and encourage them to take time away from their desks to stay healthy.

You could say that MoveOn has offices all over America. That’s because MoveOn staff live all across the country. No two people work in the same place. This is not an accident. It started as an experiment in the “virtual office,”and it has proven an important part of our success.

We don’t care where in the country you work; we care about the work you’re doing. We equip you with everything you need for your home office or coworking space, while also empowering you to take time away from the office to find a coffee shop or other location for your work to thrive from.

Being in a virtual office means that we hire the best person for the job, no matter where they live.


We work in service of our members

Since the founding of MoveOn, we’ve taken a different approach to our work. Instead of thinking of the Internet as a new and bigger “soap box” or megaphone for getting out our own opinions, we’ve looked at it as a medium for helping people connect to each other and be effective together. This view–which is different from many other political and advocacy organizations–is basically a service model. Providing service is a humble act that is a core piece of what we do.

We are a team of leaders

We hire wickedly smart, ferociously entrepreneurial, and extraordinarily competent people. We ask our team to step up to bear the responsibility for our success, drive always toward excellence, and celebrate as one team.

We believe in equity

MoveOn is a truly inclusive, diverse, progressive organization. We practice equity internally with our staff and externally with our members and in our campaigns. We seek to practice this core progressive value not just because we honor the dignity and humanity of all people, but because equity is fundamental to building a strong movement and achieving breakthrough progressive power rooted in the history of social justice movements. We’re proud to be multiracial, gender inclusive and cross-­class, representing people of all ages, religions, abilities, and sexual and gender identities.

We go bold

We’ve been going bold since our inception, and now we are preparing to go bolder than ever. In the ever-changing world of online organizing, we want to continue to be the leader that we have always been. Whether it’s launching a million-dollar campaign to draft Senator Elizabeth Warren into the presidential election or advancing another blockbuster idea that we’re waiting on you to lead, we’re ready to take it on and continue to shape the progressive space as we know it.

We demonstrate our resilience and power by fighting for–and winning–campaigns for common-sense progressive change. MoveOn members have helped win $15 an hour minimum wage in cities across the country alongside the Fight for $15; we led the charge to prevent war with Iran and demonstrate that diplomacy works.

Senior Digital Data Analyst (2016 Election)

Full-time • Starts ASAP • Competitive Pay • Excellent Benefits • Work from Anywhere in the U.S.  • Temporary role through Dec. 1 with possibility of extension

About MoveOn

MoveOn.org—the preeminent people-powered progressive campaigning organization that has, time and again, deployed innovative uses of data and technology in service of making social change—is hiring a new Senior Digital Data Analyst through the 2016 election.

We’re looking for someone to use analytics to help defeat Donald Trump, his dangerous politics of hatred, racism, misogyny, authoritarianism, and violence, and those who enable it—and build independent progressive political power in the process. Is this you?

Since 1998, MoveOn.org has been at the leading edge of figuring out how to leverage data, technology, and scale to organize and empower millions of everyday Americans to make a difference in the big fights of our time—combating economic inequality, opposing unjust wars, pushing for action on the climate crisis, and more.

Throughout its history, MoveOn has championed a culture of analytics and analytic innovation—from the kinds of digital A/B testing and optimization now made famous by presidential campaigns to deep member listening through data. In recent years, MoveOn has incubated Upworthy.com (formerly MoveOn Media) to use a data-driven approach to find and spread powerful and compelling progressive content, developed predictive models to better understand members and guide strategic decisions, and integrated 17 years of historical data into a cloud-based data warehouse, making even more and more advanced analytics possible.

This election year we face a threat, not only from Donald Trump, but from candidates across the country emboldened by his politics of hate. We’re going to stand up to that hate through digital and offline organizing with our millions of members and help strengthen progressive candidates and progressive causes in the process.

Working together with teams across the organization, MoveOn’s Senior Data Analyst will guide the use of data, develop analytic tools to make our work better, and create breakthrough innovations to better serve MoveOn’s millions of members. You’ll work closely with MoveOn.org Civic Action’s and MoveOn.org Political Action’s terrific, small (3035 people), and tight-knit staff.

Is this job for you?

  • Are you a highly skilled, entrepreneurial data analyst who encounters everyday problems and sees them as fun or interesting data challenges?
  • Do you believe in the potential of the internet and analytics to empower and help win campaigns for social justice?
  • Are you a thoughtful and effective communicator, who can both talk to a technical audience and partner with a nontechnical audience?
  • Are you a practical problem solver who understands how to incorporate data in decision making to help drive clear, strategic decisions?

Our 2016 Digital Data Analyst should be a gifted data analyst who can communicate effectively across the organization and apply strategic and analytic judgement. The role requires the following:

  •     Digital Experience. A lot of our analytics is in support of our online community of millions of members. We’re looking for experience with A/B testing, modeling and optimizing user flows, and integrating data and testing into email and websites.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills. You’ll be working with people from teams across the organization. They don’t want a data dump. They want collaboration and strategic guidance.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills. The core of this role is to translate real-world challenges into analytic problems, solve them, and translate them back into real-world solutions. You should love the thought of doing that.
  • Good judgment and vision. The organization counts on its analytics team to provide sound decision-making advice. You should feel comfortable doing that, even with imperfect knowledge.
  • Experience with databases and lots of data. We use postgreSQL and Amazon Redshift as well as MySQL databases. Experience with other setups is fine too. Experience with digital analytics or analytics in an advocacy or electoral campaign is also a plus, but not required.
  • A strong understanding of modern data science. Our problems frequently change, so a broad knowledge base of analytic approaches and the ability to learn quickly are key. We do most of our analysis in R with scripts as needed, but any solid stats/analytics platform experience will work.
  • A passion for social justice. You should do this job because you’re passionate about making the country more progressive through grassroots activism.
  • A warm, caring, earnest nature and good sense of humor. You’d fit in well at MoveOn with those.
