About the role


Swayable is a fast-growing, cloud analytics product that measures public opinion and the impact of messages and advertising content on it. It is a 20-person team backed by top technology and social impact investors, including Y Combinator. Founded in 2018 by two physics PhDs, it is led by the former Executive Director for Digital Strategy at the New York Times. Clients include major consumer-facing brands (Amazon, Airbnb, Square, Paramount Pictures), researchers (MIT, Yale, Stanford) and mission-aligned advocacy campaigns (including multiple Democratic Presidential candidates). Joining Swayable means being on a team whose work changes the course of history. The technology we develop is at the leading edge of transforming some of the world’s most important campaign organizations and enterprises: combatting disinformation, protecting democracy, and supporting the sustainable growth of consumer-facing brands.

  • Partner with Product and Design to advance the product and provide important client feedback
  • Support ad-hoc projects and lead initiatives that advance the internal tooling and processes


  • Significant background in political/advocacy campaigns with substantial relationships in the ecosystem (e.g. agencies, PACs and caucuses), bringing immediate credibility with our high-level advocacy and political partners on data, polling and/or messaging
  • College degree required, graduate degree preferred
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • Detailed-oriented and highly organized
  • Motivated and proactive, anticipating what will be needed rather than requiring direction
  • Prepared to work hard while being fun to collaborate with
  • Enthusiastic about technology startups
  • Passionate about progressive political movements, and interested in marketing/branding, and enthusiastic to work with these clients
  • Intellectually curious and eager to learn new things
  • Great with people, zero-drama
  • Project management experience
  • Experience presenting to senior clients with immediate ability to inspire confidence
  • Solid basis of understanding of statistics and mathematics and confidence to fill any gaps


  • Most important is being a quick learner of new skills
  • Experience in customer-facing roles is a plus
  • Strong skills in all basic enterprise collaboration apps is required (e.g. Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Dropbox, Gmail, Google apps required), bonus if you have some knowledge of creative apps (Adobe Creative Suite, video editing) and data science and coding (we are a Python shop)


We are looking for a primarily DC-based candidate for this role, or someone with strong relationships in the DC community who has lived there. This role would be work-from-home for now, but we will likely have in-person presence soon.
