OpenMedia is looking for a Digital Campaigner who wants to lead campaigns that fight for an Internet that is open, affordable, and surveillance-free.
If you’re an experienced campaigner with excellent writing skills, online savvy, and a passion for using people power to turn the tables on corporate and government attacks on the free and open Internet, then this is the job for you!

We create community-driven campaigns that engage, educate, and empower people to mobilize and affect systemic change on key digital issues. Where we see systemic differences in who gets to fully participate in today’s Internet, we work to make those opportunities more equal.
And, we happen to be looking for another practical idealist who doesn’t want just any ordinary job.
