In this year's election, MoveOn will mobilize to take back our government and create a nation where all can thrive--one marked by justice, sustainability, economic security, peace, and mutual care. We'll do it by activating a grassroots wave and by running an innovative digital persuasion effort on a nationwide scale.

Since the 2016 election, MoveOn has developed and piloted a powerful new breakthrough in digital persuasion that we're planning to take to scale across dozens of U.S. House races, as well as Senate and other statewide races in the fall general election.

Our approach combines authentic messages and grassroots messengers to reach voters directly. We combine these personal videos with detailed, rigorous analytics to find and target voters that can be persuaded to vote in favor of our endorsed candidates. Through our work in 2016 and 2017, we've seen the potential to move thousands of individual voters, enough to  have a real impact on an election. Now we're aiming to scale this work across the country.

The Real Voter Voices Project Data Analyst will play a key role in building out, testing, and implementing the analytics that drive our video testing program.
