About Color of Change
Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. We develop strategies to put an end to policies and practices holding Black people back while championing the solutions that move all people forward. As a national force driven by over one million members, we move decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more humane and less hostile world for Black people in America. In 2005, Color Of Change was founded in response to the realization that during the Hurricane Katrina crisis, no one was afraid to disappoint Black people. There were no consequences for Black people being left stranded on their roofs to die, nor was there sufficient infrastructure among Black communities to aggregate our power and demand them for those that perpetuated or refused to acknowledge the tragic injustice. Color Of Change is impacting lives by introducing accountability into the systems of decision-making. We leverage emerging technologies and our media savvy and sharp focus to build the power it takes to move decision-makers in corporations, media, and government to drive meaningful change for Black people in service of ending injustice for all oppressed groups.
The Marketing & Storytelling team creates and leads the brand and content strategy necessary to translate and advance COC’s values, vision, and efforts across a broad set of national influencers and grassroots activists. Through various platforms and mediums, the team is responsible for supporting efforts across the organization to deliver on our main promise: provoking the level and frequency of action from our members and allies that will force target decision-makers to take action and thereby achieve real-world impact and lasting, systemic change. The team is also responsible for brand management, strategic content development, content distribution, and high-level media relations. Central to the Marketing & Storytelling team’s work is COC’s Hollywood work that is designed to change the way Black people (and the issues we care about) are represented in entertainment media and to effectively leverage cultural influencers to support our campaigns.
Working with the Chief Marketing & Storytelling Officer (CMSO), the Senior Web Developer will be responsible for ensuring high quality online user-experience across all COC’s website properties, platforms, and other online tools in support of our campaigns, and work related to social media and content distribution. The Senior Web Developer will also play a role in helping to foster brand alignment by managing technology-related vendors; working closely with other developers; collaborating with the marketing, campaigns, and social media and content teams; and providing the overall technology strategy for the organization.
The ideal candidate is a leader who:
Planning and Project Management (30%)
Strategy Development (20%)
People Management (20%)
Information security (10%)
We don’t like to insert a long list of “must-haves” here. What we know is that this is not a traditional product role. We are looking for a creative and mature leader with vision and insight, recognizing that person could come from a range of backgrounds.
Some or all of these would be great to see in the ideal candidate’s background:
