Sales Strategy Fellow
Sales Strategy Fellow
When the story of the 2020 election is told, there will be a section about how American democracy was preserved with the help of insight and data; chapters will be devoted to polling innovations that helped thousands of candidates — from the Democratic nominee for President, to municipal candidates and everyone in between — use modern data science techniques to win.
You want to be at the center of that. You are building a career that bridges technology and politics, combining the best of both worlds to strengthen Democratic political infrastructure. You work on doing things better, and you thrive in an environment that prizes a commitment to impact and accuracy in a fast-paced campaign-like environment.
Change Research encourages and expects campaign season fellows to lead projects, manage major tasks, and contribute substantially and meaningfully every day.
