Drivers Union is a worker organization representing gig workers in Washington State, primarily Uber and Lyft drivers. For years gig workers have had their rights and their input into their working lives restricted. Drivers Union is one of the first organizations in the nation to provide a legislative and legal framework for drivers to have a true and legitimate voice in their work lives. Drivers have fought long and hard to establish these rights and are looking for staff who are committed to fight for social and economic justice for their communities.

  • Deep understanding of the role of data in building power and achieving organizational goals

  • Experience importing and exporting data to and from different data systems

  • Ability to think strategically about data, and to train and support a diverse team to maximize data quality and utility

  • Strong knowledge of Excel, and familiarity with MS Office and other software applications

  • Experience managing social media campaigns with a track record of meeting metrics to build engagement among multilingual and diverse communities, a plus

  • Experience managing data in campaign environments, particularly through NationBuilder, a plus

  • Other duties, responsibilities, and activities that may change at any time

Drivers Union offers a competitive salary and excellent benefits including full family medical, dental and vision, auto allowance, paid time off, retirement, etc.

Particular consideration will be given to candidates with for-hire driving experience, fluency in language(s) other than English, and community leadership in the region’s diverse immigrant and refugee communities.
