Digital Coordinator

We’re a full-service digital firm that works with Democratic candidates and liberal causes. We work in partnership with our clients to package their unique story into digital content that is both compelling and data-driven — motivating the right people to read, to listen and, most importantly, to act. Our Digital Coordinator will play an important role in the digital operations of leading campaigns at the federal, state, and local levels.

This position can be performed on a hybrid basis in the D.C. Metro Area or remotely from elsewhere in the continental United States. Occasional domestic travel may be required.


Ascend Digital Strategies is seeking a Digital Coordinator to join our team. You will play an important role in implementing impactful email, SMS and direct response campaigns that resonate with a broad spectrum of grassroots activists and supporters. This position reports to the Director of Digital Fundraising. 


  • Load, format, and send advocacy emails and text messages using CRMs
  • Craft compelling copy for email, SMS, ActBlue, and landing pages that engages donors and grassroots activists;
  • Manage and update campaign content calendars;
  • Assist in the creation of client performance reports, including both back-end spreadsheet management and client-facing memos; and
  • Participate in internal strategy meetings and brainstorms, as well as meetings with clients.

Skills and Qualifications

  • Exceptional writing, editing, and proofreading skills. Impactful, compelling, error-free copy — created with its audience in mind at all times — is the foundation of all our digital campaigns.
  • Strong organizational skills and the ability to multitask.
  • Facility with data management, experience with spreadsheets, and general savviness with learning new technologies.
  • Experience working with email or direct marketing programs for electoral campaigns, advocacy organizations, or non-profit entities (as an intern or otherwise) is a plus but not required.
  • Familiarity with online organizing platforms, HTML/CSS, and/or CRMs (e.g., NGP, EveryAction, Action Network, Switchboard, Tatango) is also a plus.


The starting salary for the Digital Coordinator position ranges from $54,000 – $58,000 on an annualized basis, commensurate with experience and qualifications.
