Senior Web Developer

Us
We are a communications and digital marketing firm located in Austin, Texas. We’re internationally recognized for working at the highest levels of the business, non-profit, and political worlds. With our experience at the highest levels of conservative politics, our team is uniquely positioned to help build a robust digital presence.

Role
We are looking for an expert level web developer needed to build and maintain political advocacy websites using WordPress and NationBuilder, as well as lead our team of Developers. The day-to-day work consists primarily of front end development. Many of our websites are built on the NationBuilder platform, which utilizes Liquid templating code.

You will lead a team of three other full-time developers that aren’t just crushing bugs, but also coding new features and connecting with exciting APIs around the web. We look for new ways of doing things and creating websites that win awards and accomplish the goals of our clients. While maintaining and working on large, top-tier projects, you also teach and assist your team. You are the chief voice of development within the company.

The work hours are atypical and centered heavily around politics (i.e. primaries, general election, debates, rallies, etc). But as such, we provide atypical benefits. For example, we have taken days off to enjoy the Austin weather, for Austin City Limits Fest, an extra week given after the election, and the more than occasional happy hour.

You
We want to hire the best and the very brightest–in both skills and creativity. As such, we have high standards:

  • An eye for design with ability to develop the work by our talented designers
  • Knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3 / SASS
  • Knowledge of WordPress theme development
  • Knowledge of UX pertaining to websites
  • Expert knowledge of PHP, JavaScript, and jQuery

  • Ability to meet deadlines and update Project Managers on ongoing status
  • Work with internal teams (design, account, etc) to accomplish goals of the clients
  • Experience pushing multiple tasks and projects forward, that can range from small edits to a site to deep interaction of a full website.
  • Willingness to learn and adapt to the changing online landscape, in both a go-getter and workshop learner fashion

  • Knowledge of Angular
  • Google Analytics & Tag Manager
  • NationBuilder/Liquid (or similar templating language) experience

Digital Marketing Account Executive

Us
We are a communications and digital marketing firm located in Austin, Texas. We’re internationally recognized for working at the highest levels of the business, non-profit, and political worlds.

To brag a little, we were the first to use Google click-to-call for advocacy, first to place a paid political Snapchat geofilter, first to use native Twitter video attack ads, first U.S. Senate ad on Instagram, and much more.

Role
You would be joining our collaborative and creative team of digital natives that works across disciplines to bring the best strategy and content to our clients. As a full-service creative agency, Digital Strategists, Account Executives, Advertising Specialists, Designers, Videographers, and Developers work hand-in-hand to accomplish the goals of our clients.

As part of our expansive Account team, you will be in charge of planning and executing digital strategy for a wide range of conservative clients. We work in teams and with other internal departments, so an eagerness to collaborate is a must. This means there are a lot of meetings. Not only do we have team meetings to discuss and strategize client work, but also weekly learnings on new technology and company-wide brainstorming for content around upcoming events.

You are not only a do-er, but a leader. You are just as confident working one-on-one with a fellow teammate as you are in arguing and winning large advertising budgets for the top races in the country. You will be interacting with mid- and senior-level clients: communicating the agency’s strategic and creative points of view, as well as managing client feedback. We don’t sit still and neither should you. This is fast-paced, proactive work in which we seek out the next great idea and stay ahead of the ever-changing news cycle. Practically, you need to seek out new information by reading blog posts, case studies, articles, commentary, conference talks, and everything else under the sun. Then you need to be able to communicate that information accurately and authoritatively to your team and to your clients.

The work hours are atypical and centered heavily around politics (i.e. primaries, general election, debates, rallies, etc). As an Account Executive, you are the first line of defense and the main point of contact for our clients. When something happens, they call you.

But as such, we provide atypical benefits. For example, we have taken days off to enjoy the Austin weather, for Austin City Limits, an extra week given after the election, and the more-than-occasional happy hour.

The day-to-day varies depending on teams and goals of the clients. This means managing and streamlining the day-to-day digital operations and success of your clients, including content calendars, project management, and communicating with the clients.

It is typically leading the strategy of social media content, planning and managing online advertising, online fundraising planning (including email), and implementing political website trends and tactics. But it also includes more intangible tasks, like daily management of client teams while collaborating with other internal agency teams, like Web Developers, Ad Specialists, Designers, and Digital Strategists.

We are a team of consultants. Our Account Executives must be proactive, not just middlemen between the client and our internal agency teams. We are looking for someone who will be active and ideas-driven, not just completing a task to check the box.

You
We want to hire the best and the very brightest–in both politics and creativity.

As such, we have high standards:

  • Supervising and teaching of Account Coordinators and others on your client team.
  • Proven strategic thinking skills and a passion for making great work.
  • Excellent oral communication skills, with the ability to speak confidently to clients
  • Excellent writing skills for both pithy social content and long-form online fundraising emails
  • Ability to meet tight deadlines
  • Experience pushing multiple tasks forward in different sectors and for different clients; while maintaining ongoing management of digital advertising campaigns and multiple websites.
  • Willingness to learn and adapt to the changing digital landscape, in both a go-getter and workshop learner fashion
  • Familiar in both audiences, technical limitations, and content types for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms.
  • Have the ability to merge your own voice with that of the clients in order to communicate effectively and capitalize on cultural trends, real-time news, and topics relevant to our audience.
  • Comfortable working with senior clients and demonstrates potential for leadership and management of senior client.
  • The ability to lead tasks to completion, while being collaborative and motivating your teams.
  • Have client facing experience in both fulfilling their needs and consulting based on expertise.
  • Bachelor’s degree or comparable work experience.

If you exceed our expectations, you’ll have some of these qualities:

  • Experience in marketing, especially political, advocacy, nonprofit, or corporate
  • Campaign experience
  • Previous online advertising strategy or buying experience

Schedule and Compensation
This is a full-time position in Austin, TX only. We are not accepting contract, freelance, or other part-time work. Salary will be dependent on experience. The company also helps cover the cost to you to provide you quality health insurance without having you foot the entire bill.
