This race will be the top gubernatorial race in the country and we need someone who is willing to work hard and commit themselves to electing Jay Inslee as Washington’s next governor.

Field Organizers will work directly with the Field Director and other campaign staff to manage voter contact efforts. Your primary responsibilities will be to recruit, manage and train volunteers who will communicate with voters about Jay Inslee and the campaign. Specifically, you will:

  • Outstanding verbal, written and leadership skills
  • Ability to handle multiple priorities and meet established deadlines
  • Ability to work well and creatively under tight timelines, in a team environment and independently
