Description

Stand.earth is an advocacy organization that brings people together to demand that corporations and governments put people and the environment first.

Stand.earth is hiring a passionate senior markets campaigner/analyst to play a lead role in catalyzing action by the IT sector to address the massive climate footprint associated with the manufacturing of our smartphones and other computing devices. Your work will lead to a transformational shift among some of the world’s biggest brands to move their global supply chains away from fossil fuels to renewables, and ultimately to become fossil fuel free.

If you love developing creative campaign strategies to reach company decision makers, have a knack for deep corporate research or developing partnerships with allies in supply chain hot spots, and thrive in front of a camera or microphone, this might be the perfect role for you!

You will be joining an international team of strategists, negotiators, campaigners, and activists that achieves outsized results and is bursting with creativity, innovation, and untapped potential. Stand.earth is committed to engaging in the process of decolonization. We also have long standing commitments to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) that touch all of our programs. The Senior Corporate Campaign Specialist will be expected to understand and embrace these concepts and incorporate them into the design and execution of our overall campaign and organizing work.

The Position

Reporting to the Global Climate Campaigns Director, the Senior Corporate Campaign Specialist - Information Technology (IT) Sector position is responsible for leading the our IT sector campaign strategy, supporting issue research, leading corporate negotiations, communicating through traditional and digital channels with key audiences, coordinating with allies, and helping to design creative high-impact actions.

This position will be a senior member of a broader campaign team working to catalyze corporate leadership to drive a rapid transition to renewables across the manufacturing supply chain of both the fashion and IT sectors, two of the largest sources of climate pollution in the world.

This is a full-time position with an excellent package of employee and health benefits. Salary is commensurate with experience and adjusted based on location, but will likely be within the range of $75,000-$90,000 USD. The location for this position is for the time being fully remote in the United States. The role may have the opportunity to shift to one of our hub offices at a later stage.

This position will work closely with the development and digital teams, and must have a strong interest and/or commitment to Stand.earth’s values.
