Good Party is looking for a full-time, remote Social Media Manager with 5+ years experience and a passion for content creation to join us in building an online movement to unlock our mission.
About Good Party:
Good Party is the movement to make people matter more than money in our democracy.
At Good Party, we help real people run winning campaigns based on good ideas. We connect our supporters to these Good Candidates who will truly represent us in office.
Americans are losing faith in democracy – especially young people. The rigged, two party system has turned Independent into a dirty word to make voters trapped between voting for the lesser of two evils or wasting their vote on an alternative. Whether you’re concerned about the climate, privacy, inequality, or our individual freedoms, solutions are held back by the dark doom-loop of dysfunctional partisan politics.
We recognize that Independent and 3rd party candidates lack the resources to be viable against Republicans and Democrats, even though a majority of Americans are Independent. In fact, a majority of eligible voters (over 130M Americans), including more than half of Millennials and Gen Z, say that neither Republicans, nor Democrats represent them…but they keep getting elected!
Good Party’s solution is to provide candidates who take our pledge with cutting-edge tech tools to win, without selling out to the Democrats or Republicans. We are building a community to end the corrupt two party system and then harnessing that community’s collective power to elect the most promising independents around the country. By leveraging social media and creators, we’re making our mission to make people matter more than money mainstream.
Good Party is founded by serial entrepreneur, Farhad Mohit, with over $1B in exits — Flipagram (now TikTok), Shopzilla, and BizRate.

Why you should work at Good Party:

  • Join us in solving the biggest problem of our time – fixing our democracy – so all other problems can be solved
  • We’re a Public Benefit Corporation that prioritizes social impact over profit
  • Innovative Bitcoin denominated deferred bonus plan, allowing you to have the amazing upside of being in a startup while working on a truly meaningful mission
  • Work where and how you like, on a fully remote team spread across the country
  • Join a passionate team with diverse political views focused on one mission
  • 100% coverage of health, dental, and vision benefits for you and your dependents
  • We encourage you to take time off to recharge and have an unlimited PTO (sick and vacation) policy. This is a marathon, not a sprint. We believe a work-life balance is needed to get there.
  • We’ll make sure you’ve got what you need to work remotely through our workspace setup stipendIf you work from home, we give $50/month to help with your internet and other expenses. If you prefer co-working, that’s an option we can discuss too.
  • Fully funded for our mission. No stressing over whether the next round of funding will come through. Focus on making an impact. That’s what matters here.

  • Directly manage and coach our small team of content creating interns, manage relationships with contractor content creators and agencies, and in the future support volunteer creators in spreading our mission.
  • Test and learn with content styles, mediums, topics, AI tools, and more – success in this role looks like an iterative approach to social media.

  • You’re a skilled doer who’s game to spin up a piece of content yourself and learn through results-oriented experimentation. You’re also ready to coach by offering useful guidance, edits, and feedback to junior team members, contractor creators, and volunteers. You’re excited to use your experience to develop others.
  • You love being chronically online. You spend your days scrolling social media, switching from feed to feed, and keeping your finger on the pulse of the latest trends and memes.
