The Democratic National Committee’s Tech team is hiring a Product Marketing Manager to help us build world class tools to help candidates win elections and to empower progressives across the country by providing them with access to high quality data and tools they need to win.
We need an experienced Product Marketing Manager to help us define and communicate our value proposition for our data warehouse and suite of self service analytics tools we are building for our growing community of data analysts and data scientists in state parties, campaigns, sister committees (like the DCCC), and vendors.
This role is the glue that binds our product strategy to the tactics we need to drive success in marketing and communications to achieve results. You will be the product evangelist and will play an integral role in organizing product releases and linking arms with our community team to ensure consistent and clear customer messaging and support.
Who we are
The Tech team is a small, diverse team that provides the technology used by candidates and organizers in all 50 states and all 3,413 counties across the United States to analyze data, organize campaigns, raise money, and get out the vote on election day. But there’s more to do. So we’re hiring product managers, engineers, researchers, designers, security experts, IT professionals, and data scientists who can use user-centered design and rapid iteration to develop a rich technology ecosystem for progressives—building tools ourselves as well as partnering with other companies and organizations.
Our data warehouse and analytics tools is our product (‘Phoenix’). We are deeply committed to equipping candidates and campaigns around the country with the resources they need to win, and we are seeking a Product Marketing Manager to collaborate with our product and community teams to identify the highest value opportunities to improve users’ end to end experience with democratic data.
Our users range in technical skill and it’s our mission to build tools that help analysts and data scientists uplevel their analytics game by providing features and functions that seamlessly integrate with our data warehouse.

- Secure the future of our country? Right now a lot is at stake in our country and our team has a huge opportunity to make a real difference.

- Never stop learning? There are people who know about politics and people who know about technology and a few who have figured out some things about how to combine the two, but we are blazing new trails and you should be comfortable exploring and learning from everyone you can.
This is a full-time role. We are a remote team with a concentration of folks in Washington, D.C., San Francisco Bay Area, Boston and Chicago.
