People Operations Intern



People & HR, Operations
United States
Posted on Wednesday, January 17, 2024
Good Party is looking for a detail-oriented People Operations Intern with previous relevant experience to join our operations team. Your role will be critical in assisting our organization’s hiring, administrative, and people operations initiatives to grow Good Party’s movement in this critical election year. You’ll be involved in the day to day of an early stage startup and have multiple opportunities for mentorship and growth through interactions with senior leadership. If you want to gain valuable experience while making a difference, this opportunity is for you.
We’re especially interested in applicants who are current college seniors or recent graduates with past experience in a hiring, HR, or people operations internship, since this has potential to convert to full-time upon graduation.
About Good Party:
Good Party is the movement to make people matter more than money in our democracy. We’re building free tech and a movement to end America's two-party political dysfunction.
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. 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! 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.
With over 500,000 elected offices in the United States, Good Party is empowering a grassroots revolution to take back our communities from career politicians. We help real people run winning local and state level campaigns.
Good Party’s solution is to train people to run for office plus support candidates who take our pledge with cutting-edge tech tools to win, all without selling out to the Democrats, Republicans, big money, or special interests. Our free AI Campaign Manager and team with 50+ years of campaign experience make running, winning and serving as an independent possible.
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.
