Who We Are
The Campaign Workshop is a fun and quirky bunch of political and advocacy professionals. We help progressive nonprofits, campaigns, labor unions, and advocacy groups to develop new strategies, create digital ads, design direct mail, deliver training, and develop content.
We build award-winning, strategically driven campaigns for clients like AFSCME, UFCW, Giffords, NRDC, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, American Federation of Teachers, Mayor Muriel Bowser, LGBTQ Victory Institute, and California Federation of Teachers. For samples of our work, please visit our website. Also, we have done an extensive amount of writing on our blog and in our e-books.
We are a fully remote company offering a welcoming and relaxed (for as much as politics is relaxing), flexible work environment and believe in intentional leadership development of all our staff.
We are committed to racial justice, and we’re working to build an actively anti-racist company. Internally, we’re working to create a company where everyone can show up fully as themselves, where we engage directly with our identities and biases, and where we work together to dismantle systems of oppression. Externally, we hope to show up for our clients in their work towards racial justice, to help build a stronger and more diverse pipeline of talent into political consulting, and to grow partnerships with vendors of diverse backgrounds.

Who You Are:
This is an entry-level role at the Campaign Workshop, and we’re excited to work with candidates who are new to the industry. The ideal candidate will be:
- An adept organizer and problem-solver. You can juggle multiple complex projects simultaneously and meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment. You can predict roadblocks before you reach them, and plan ahead to make sure that we deliver results for our clients.
- A clear communicator. You are willing to engage with all team members to determine priorities and ensure that everyone has the information they need to maintain internal and external workflows so deliverables remain on schedule.
- A quick and eager learner. We don’t require past professional experience for this role, but are looking for folks who can learn how to do our work quickly. We’re a small team, and we all wear lots of hats, and you’ll help us fill gaps. You can pick up on new ideas, ask questions to fill in knowledge gaps, and find solutions to problems that you don’t already know the answer to.
- Deeply committed to racial justice and all forms of equity. You understand how your identities impact the way you show up at work, and you’ll use your platform at The Campaign Workshop to help us build an inclusive and equitable workplace.
This role is open to candidates with a range of backgrounds and experience, including candidates that have just graduated from college or who haven’t worked in politics or advocacy before. We’re primarily interested in folks who are eager to learn more about our work and interested in launching careers in politics and advocacy.

- We’re committed to learning and growth. We really invest in our people, through training, feedback, and mentorship. Some folks stay at TCW for decades, while others use this as a launchpad into careers across the progressive ecosystem. We create space for mistakes and take dedicated time for learning and professional development.
- We show up for each other. We’re a diverse team with a wide range of experiences –– some of us have been at TCW through 13 years and 4 promotions, and others are just starting out here as their first job out of college –– but we share a commitment to building a workplace where we can all thrive. We respect each others’ boundaries, recognize that we all have commitments beyond work, and trust each other to get work done.
- You’ll love working here. We’re a small, collaborative team of people who really care about doing good work and who treat each other with compassion and respect. We offer great benefits and real opportunities for growth.
