Job Openings: Digital Coordinator!

Thanks for your interest in working for RG! We currently are hiring for the following position:

  • Database and Digital Engagement Coordinator

Resource Generation is seeking a full-time Database & Digital Engagement Coordinator (Digital Coordinator) to manage our database and support our Digital campaigns efforts. This is a new position which will take the lead on implementing database standards, organize and streamline our digital content production practices across the organization, and train and support our chapter organizations in using the digital and database tools at our disposal. 

This position is intended to expand RG’s capacity to effectively organize young people with access to wealth into our chapters and to take nationally coordinated action towards the equitable distribution of wealth, land, and power. The Digital Coordinator will not work in an online silo — rather they will be frequently interfacing with a range of people across the organization and supporting multiple efforts. This person will support our team of staff and member-leaders who are already actively using our database to make our shared online and offline work more easeful, powerful, and informed by data as we move towards collective goals. The Digital Coordinator will also be responsible for training and troubleshooting our digital engagement systems — breaking down complex systems and practices so they can be understood and ultimately adopted by people of varying digital experience. 

Resource Generation is a national non-profit organization mobilizing young people (age 18-35) with wealth and class privilege in the U.S. to become transformative leaders working towards the equitable distribution of wealth, land and power. The broader Resource Generation community includes people of all ages and class backgrounds who support the role that young people with wealth play in social change. RG has 16 chapters in cities around the U.S., and our chapters engage in base-building, political education programming, running giving circles, engaging in local and national campaigns, and building local organizational relationships.

By more effectively mobilizing our growing base to act, more money will move to social justice movements and more young people with wealth will participate in campaigns to address the root causes of wealth inequality.

This position is supervised by the Communications Director. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The ideal start date is October – November, 2019. 

Location: The candidate will work from our New York Office or have the option to work remotely. National travel four times per year to staff and member retreats is required.

Compensation: This is a full-time position with a starting salary of $56,000 – $60,000 depending on experience. Benefits include 100% employer paid health, vision, and dental insurance, 403(b) retirement plan and an employer contribution after one year of employment, medical and transit flexible spending account, and annual paid vacation (15 days), sick leave (15 days), personal days (5 days), and holidays (10).

How to apply: Go to https://resource-generation.breezy.hr/p/5af4be2b175c-database-digital-engagement-coordinator and click apply. You will be asked to provide a resume, cover letter, and one writing sample no longer than 1-2 pages, which does not have to be a published work, i.e. blog post, email blast for organization, etc. The deadline for applications is August 30th, 2019.
