About the Position

Accelerate Change is seeking a detail-oriented Influencer Engagement and Experimentation Manager who is ready on day one to support our work in building relationships with a diverse community of creators and across our network of mission-driven media partners. We’re looking for a dynamic and flexible Influencer Engagement and Experimentation Manager who is passionate about creator work, tapped into social trends and is excited to engage with creators in meaningful ways that can generate change.

Here’s what you could expect to do as Influencer Engagement and Experimentation Manager (key responsibilities):

  • Assist the Director of Influencer Engagement and Experimentation in high-level creator program strategy and structure, keeping financial sustainability top of mind.

  • Multitask across a wide range of content and values-driven messaging topics, sometimes with competing timelines and content demands, with a high degree of organization and attention to detail.

  • Manually prospect creators, according to specific, niche asks, as a critical, ongoing task.

  • Work with niche and BIPOC creator communities and personalities in a highly collaborative way, including BIPOC creator communities and working class, rural, and evangelical creators covering values-driven topics.

  • Develop creative briefs, create hooks, find inspiration for content creation, and support creators in creative content brainstorming. Creatively translate values-driven topics in a meaningful, engaging, and exciting way for creators to integrate on their platforms and our partner platforms.

  • Exercise a deep understanding of creator audiences and messaging relevant to each creator’s unique audience. Craft meaningful creator messaging and finesse messaging in a way that is exciting and easily understood by creator audiences.

  • Propose and implement innovative creative integrations—beyond traditional collaborations— and ways to scale creator content.

  • Build community with creators and partners, providing creative support and hands-on relationship management tasks.

  • Collaborate with partner organizations, taking initiative to meet partner needs related to creator work.

  • Manually track and report on creator content performance data, to inform and grow our creator program work and experimentation.

  • Track progress and learnings from partner creator projects, to share across our network of media partners. Deepen network and leadership understanding of industry best practices and creator relationship management through clear and concise communication.

  • Support administrative tasks including creator meeting scheduling, meeting recaps, and template creation (outreach, kickoff, follow-ups, etc).

We’ll also look for the Influencer Engagement and Experimentation Manager to:

  • TBD. As part of a rapidly growing organization, you’ll need to embrace change and that your responsibilities will shift over time. Pitching in to help with the needs of your department and the overall Central Team is an important part of your role.

  • Help advance our goal of becoming an anti-racist organization. Within your role, apply equitable work practices, challenge white supremacy, and help make our programs more inclusive. Center our understanding that multiple systems of oppression intersect with racism and be an active part of our values work.

  • Serve as a resource to our networks of partners. Help amplify partner successes, make connections between partners and facilitate learning sharing, and offer your expertise to partners in our networks wherever it makes sense.

  • Take an entrepreneurial approach to their work and learning new skills. In our fast-paced, unstructured environment, we love it when staff first try to figure things out on their own and then ask for help if they’re stuck. In this role, it will be critical to take initiative, communicate clearly, and ensure tasks are completed.

  • Seek out opportunities to deepen their skills on current/emerging platforms and with lean startup methodology. We take an individualized approach to growth where staff have the chance to explore and propose development opportunities that align with their interests and the team’s priorities.

What We’re Looking For

  • Flexibility. You have the willingness to experiment and pivot based on organizational and network needs and experimental successes and failures.

  • Energized by change. You are excited to work with creators and network in unique and meaningful ways that can help generate change.

  • Innovative Ideas. You understand the creator industry function and are eager to bring your ideas to create network opportunities.

  • Connection. You value building relationships and communicate effectively with our network and with creators with a range of personalities to continue community building.

  • Commitment to social change. Accelerate Change is a progressive workplace focused on civic engagement with BIPOC and low-income communities. You have a demonstrated commitment to this work and you’d like to be part of a team of people who do, too.

  • 3+ years experience with key responsibilities: We’re looking for someone who has at least 3 years of experience with influencer work.


  • $69,000 - $79,000 salary range, with exact salary depending on experience and new staff rarely starting at the top of the range

  • Flexibility for work and life: Unlike a lot of places, we actually believe that people should only work 40 hours each week, except for occasional sprints that require more time in a week. We also trust everyone to make a schedule that works for them, as long as you’re able to join all necessary meetings. Want to work more one day and less the next? Fine by us. Work better in the middle of the night than during the afternoon? Go for it. Need to shift your hours to be able to pick up your kid from school? All good.

  • Health care after 3 months, with individual premiums fully covered and cost-share for dependents. Vision and dental plans are available at-cost to the individual.

  • 15 paid vacation days, 6 paid holidays, 3 paid floating holidays each year and 7.5 paid sick days each year

  • Professional development funds, with renewal of funds each fiscal year.

  • Cell phone and internet reimbursement (or co-working reimbursement): We acknowledge that working from home requires using your own internet and phone for work purposes so we offer a set reimbursement amount for cell phone and internet usage. If working from home isn’t for you, we also have the option for folks to rent a co-working space and get reimbursed for their monthly costs.

  • Need-based educational loan assistance after 3 months

  • 401(k) plan after one year, with 100% employer match on the first 3% and 50% employer match on the next 2%.

  • Annual office closure during the last week in December
