Traffic Manager for the Election Cycle (Remote)

What You’ll Do:

The Traffic Manager is a full-time, temporary position from June 1 - November 10, 2022.  The Traffic Manager reports to a Senior Production Manager and works with other members of staff on assigned projects. As a traffic manager, you will:

  • Set daily art priorities based on release dates and distribute status reports.
  • Assign jobs to artists by managing workloads and competing deadlines effectively.
  • Work with account and production staff to assess daily/weekly needs from the art dept.
  • Coordinate with temporary and freelance resources to cover needs and determine availability for projects.
  • Communicate priorities and set time expectations between account, artists and production.
  • Communicate time risks and help solve time/resource issues.
  • Assist with administration tasks, as needed.

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. Experience using FileMaker or a similar CRM platform is a plus.
  • A clear and open communicator. You understand that competing deadlines can pose logistical challenges and 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.
  • 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. As the traffic manager, you will work with individuals across teams, including third-party vendors and freelancers who are integral to our creative process. Your ability to coordinate resources equitably across teams is critical.
  • Ready to own work on day one. We’ll give you a lot of responsibility, and you’ll be able to set goals, take ownership over key projects, and start moving the ball forward. You’ll effectively manage up and laterally in a small team, ask for help when you need it, and receive feedback productively.
  • A quick and eager learner. We 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.

If you’re not sure that you have all of these skills, please throw your hat in the ring anyway! We’re most excited to work with people who learn quickly and want to help us advocate for progressive causes.  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. 

What You’ll Gain:

  • First-hand experience in project management. You’ll oversee the delegation of projects to artists and have a front seat to the development of campaign strategy by members of the art, account, and production teams.
  • You’ll make an impact. You’ll be at the frontlines of our work to champion progressive causes and you’ll gain firsthand experience in the creation, production and management of campaigns.
  • 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.

Additional Information:

The salary range for this role is $50,000-$60,000 annually, which will be prorated for the election cycle along with great  benefits, including:

  • Paid vacation before September 1, 2022.
  • Blue Cross PPO platinum plan with the premium fully covered
  • 401K with a dollar-for-dollar match up to 4% after 6 months of employment.
  • $45 per month cell phone stipend and a $50/mo internet stipend.
  • Full remote office set up
