WHAT YOU'LL DO:
The Federalist Society’s Digital Operations team seeks a Digital Strategist with approximately 2-5 years of experience in digital strategy, online community management, digital advertising, and general marketing/communications. Experience with graphic design is preferred but not required.
The Digital Strategist will report to the Director of Digital Operations and serve as a lead digital strategist for a portfolio of Federalist Society programs, working closely with other digital strategists, the core Digital Operations team, and members of every division to maximize the Society’s online efforts.
Digital Operations is a team of content and marketing professionals along with a growing network of specialized independent contractors. We are a touchpoint for nearly all programs at the Society. We absolutely love the work we do and who we work with. We expect excellence—both in what we produce as well as how we treat and support each other. We’re super nerdy about ideas, and we revel in debate.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
This work may include tasks such as: proposing/justifying new digital ventures, setting up Google AdWords campaigns, optimizing elements of our Instagram account, writing a persuasive email, analyzing data for a report to the Board of Directors, or managing a Club House event. (And much more.) A to Z digital—with extensive support from the Digital Operations team and contractors.
Who is our ideal candidate? You’re totally comfortable with independence yet unafraid to ask for support. You have no problem saying “I don’t know” or “this is absolutely what we should do” depending on the context. Your extraordinary digital literacy makes you comfortable operating in the dynamic, sometimes frantically-changing online world. You’re a generalist who thoroughly enjoys learning. You want to work on a team where excellence is the baseline yet fellowship and support are the norm. You love ideas and understand their importance.
From an experience standpoint, we would anticipate 2-5 years of experience in the digital realm with emphasis on marketing and content management.
Some travel will be required.
This is not a managerial position, but you will be asked to manage contractors.
JD not required.
WHO WE ARE:
- Founded in 1982, the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians dedicated to reforming the current legal order. We are committed to the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.
- By providing a forum for legal experts of opposing views to interact with members of the legal profession, the judiciary, law students, academics, and the architects of public policy, the Society has redefined the terms of legal debate.
- The Society is a membership organization that features a Student, Lawyers, and a Faculty Division. Our active membership includes more than 10,000 law students at most of the 204 ABA-accredited law schools as well as 80,000 legal professionals in active chapters in 110 cities.
WHY PEOPLE WORK HERE:
Our staff is deeply committed to the mission of ‘FedSoc’ as we are affectionately known. We are conservatives and libertarians working for a well-known organization in Washington D.C. and throughout the United States. We are not advocates or lobbyists for specific policies but focus on our mission which is to impact the quality and depth of discourse about governing and our Constitution.
We are opinionated, focused, optimistic, pragmatic, and anxious to engage with others. Those who come to FedSoc believe deeply in the rule of law and our conversations naturally flow from that belief. Those with a well-developed and perhaps quirky sense of humor, a desire to understand the law for it’s own sake, and who are strongly self-disciplined (because we all operate without a lot of oversight) do well here. We are “all in” kind of people. We tend to thrive on great books, great journalism, great film and are thorough and committed.
WHERE YOU’LL WORK:
We are located in the heart of the District of Columbia, the nation’s capital, only three blocks from the White House and across the street from the Farragut West Metro Station with easy access to the Washington D.C. Metro area.
WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT US:
“The Federalist Society is changing the culture of our nation's law schools. You are returning the values and concepts of law as our founders understood them to scholarly dialogue, and through that dialogue, to our legal institutions.” - President Ronald Reagan
“[T]his organization has played an important part in sparking a dialogue between lawyers and judges, and even at times amongst judges themselves...by assiduously avoiding the temptation to take positions, or to lobby and engage in political advocacy. Resisting that temptation takes discipline, I am sure, but rest assured that you have made the right choice and are providing a genuine and unique service in so doing. Stay the course!” - Justice Clarence Thomas, U.S. Supreme Court
“It has been my pleasure to speak at many Federalist Society gatherings around the country, and I think one thing your organization has definitely done is to contribute to free speech, free debate, and most importantly public understanding of, awareness of, and appreciation of the Constitution. So that's a marvelous contribution.” - Nadine Strossen, Former President, ACLU
