Change.org is searching for a Strategic Experimentation Manager to join our newly formed Campaign Success Team, which offers free coaching and tools to more than 4000 petition starters a week (and growing!) to help them build and win their campaigns.

We are profitable, growing fast, and executing on a plan to deepen and scale the social movements on our platform, from strengthening hate crime legislation in South Africa, to bringing down the price of insulin across the United States, to fighting corruption in Indonesia, Italy, and Brazil. We are seeing surging levels of activity right now as the world mobilizes to fight the Coronavirus and the cascading impacts of the Coronavirus on society’s most vulnerable.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about unlocking opportunities to empower organizers at scale to help us to maximize the value of this exciting new coaching program for Change.org users.
