Director, Strategic Services 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 progressive politics.

Are you an experienced digital strategist who is looking to manage multiple high-profile client accounts in the coming election cycle? 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? 

If so, throw your hat in the ring and apply to be our newest account leader.

RESPONSIBILITIES

As a Senior Project Lead, you will manage a team to deliver industry-leading results for a host of political, advocacy, and non-profit clients. Drawing on your experience with progressive politics and project management, you will develop innovative digital advocacy, fundraising, and advertising campaigns that shape your community and the country’s future.

To accomplish that, our Project Leads need to:

  • Manage client relationships -- from conference calls to budgets -- and an internal team of digital and communications specialists.
  • Set the overall strategic direction for client accounts and manage internal resources to ensure that all deliverables are of the highest quality. Provide final internal approval for all client deliverables.
  • Oversee content development and creative production (including email, advertising, social media, and other multimedia content), production, reporting, and optimization of clients' campaign plans.
  • Advise and collaborate with Trilogy's Creative and Media teams on significant client project components including ad buys and websites.
  • Research, test, and implement new digital advertising and marketing strategies and tactics.
  • Leverage relationships for business development, participate in marketing and proposal development, and represent Trilogy at industry conferences.
  • Perform all of these tasks with a high degree of project ownership and independence. 
  • Complete timesheets on a daily basis.

REQUIRED SKILLS

Candidates should have 5-8 years of experience in a political or non-profit setting managing large-scale advertising, email and digital fundraising, and social media programs. Candidates should be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Ability to monitor budgets and manage multiple projects that utilize a team of skilled contributors.
  • Experience writing and editing ad copy, email copy, social media copy, creative briefs, and providing actionable feedback on creative deliverables.
  • Deep knowledge of national and regional politics and the current state of digital marketing best practices for campaigns and cause-based organizations. 
  • Mastery of digital advertising best practices, including experience developing targeting and advertising plans, knowledge of platform capabilities, and experience with the development of static, animated, and live video advertising creative deliverables. 

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

  • 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 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 your team to test out new strategies that improve results.
  • You love building relationships: Your communications in person or by phone 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 organizing 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: Probably 5-8 years of directly applicable experience in digital-focused progressive politics or related digital marketing work.
