We are seeking a Head of Sales & Business Development for our consulting practice. We offer consultancy services to Democratic and progressive clients nationally for elections and advocacy efforts at all levels of government.
This role reports to the Founding CEO and manages a team of 3-5 responsible for sales, partnerships, market research, and marketing. You will be responsible for our efforts to maximize our consulting firm’s contribution to the Democratic field in 2019 and 2020, as well as driving our revenue.
As a candidate, you will have led a business expansion into new markets and products, ideally in consulting services with political, advocacy, or government clients. A portion of the work will be determining which markets to enter, including government, advocacy, fundraising or other mission-aligned markets for text-based communication. The other portion will be managing and scaling our political consulting work based on our existing book of business, including positioning us for 2019 statewide races and national 2020 races. You will leverage our advisory board including senior aides to Nancy Pelosi and the co-founder of Hustle.
Experience working in politics at the national or statewide level is preferred, but not required. However, a passion for fighting fascism in alignment with our mission is mandatory. We are a devoted and focused group with varied backgrounds and seek a leader who shares the same sentiment.

We’re a lean team that’s all about hustling and getting our hands dirty to move quickly. We’ve all touched organizing, politics, and government in different capacities and share a passion for fighting Trump’s agenda and helping empower activists and political candidates at the local level.
We have several big areas we’re focusing on in 2019, like recruiting candidates for down-ballot races in red and rural areas, helping progressive candidates get elected, and driving voter registration. Instead of purely an “intern project” that may not be executed upon, our interns get in the weeds with us on the ideation and execution of these different topics to gain broader exposure to a breadth of roles within tech and elections. If you’re really interested in an area and want to run more in-depth on one of these, we can help facilitate. Essentially, this is the experience of needing to be a fast-learning, adaptable, generalist in a start-up.
