DIGITAL ORGANIZER - SNAPCHAT/TIKTOK, FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY

In 2020, Americans have embraced social media in such a way that it has become pervasive in almost every aspect of our daily lives. This has enormous ramifications to the modern political campaign and has reshaped the political landscape forever.


The Florida Democratic Party (FDP) is staying on the cutting edge of digital politics by crafting a forward-thinking Digital Organizing Program to capture and leverage every bit of its potential to activate voters and build the foundations for campaigns in 2020 and beyond.


This plan includes hiring a Digital Organizer for each major social media platform. As the Digital Organizer for Snapchat and TikTok, you would not only become a pioneer in this level of digital engagement, but also the expert of your platform and utilize it as a tool to mobilize and engage voters and volunteers to the movement to Defeat Trump in 2020.


This is an entry level position that reports to the Digital Director.
