Online Production Associate - Contract Position

For almost 30 years, Rainforest Action Network (RAN) has campaigned for the forests, their inhabitants and the natural systems that sustain life. In coalition with Indigenous communities and allies from around the world, RAN uses non-violent direct action, grassroots organizing, education, and strategic communications to challenge corporations to stop destructive operations, respect human rights, and adopt comprehensive policies that reduce their contributions to global warming.

Available now, RAN has an opening for a contract position on our Digital Engagement Team for an Online Production Associate. This full time (40 hour/week) position is open immediately, and is currently offered through June at a rate of $25/hr.

On the back end, the Online Production Associate will be responsible for evaluating data, testing, and reporting back on insights and knowledge gained from each online action completed. In addition to the production of online assets, the Online Production Associate will be responsible for assisting with growth of RAN presence across social media channels, including but not limited to Twitter and Facebook.
