Marketing Communications Manager

When the story of the 2020 election is told, there will be a section explaining how we won back our democracy with insight and data: that polling innovation helped thousands of candidates from the Democratic nominee for President, to municipal candidates, and everyone in between, use modern data science techniques to win.


You want to be at the center of that. You are building a career that bridges technology and politics, combining the best of both worlds to strengthen Democratic political infrastructure.  You are always working on doing things better, and you thrive in an environment that prizes creative story-telling in a fast-paced campaign environment.


You are a marketing generalist and understand how to use data to support story-telling.  You are comfortable with ideating and executing online and offline marketing strategies, from social media to in person events.


About Us


In 2017, we figured out a new way to quickly, affordably, and accurately measure public opinion online. We use this technology to guide forward-thinking candidates and causes and create winning strategies with them. We conducted 17 polls in 2017, 500+ polls in 2018, and will conduct thousands this cycle.


Change Research is innovating to solve critically-important problems at the intersection of data, social science, and politics. And in doing this, we hope to make our democracy better.


Ensuring a diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other is core to our values. We invite folks with different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer. Join us.
