Operations & Strategy Coordinator for Two Growing Social Impact Orgs
Who We Are
We are two social impact organizations — States Made and Knead Partners — with fearless founders looking for a right hand as both of our companies expand. While perhaps unconventional, both organizations are looking for part-time support and thought we could combine forces to find an excellent launch coordinator looking for a varied, unique experience getting to peak inside two growing organizations. This role is a dream opportunity for someone looking to get into the social impact space, or who is interested in entrepreneurship and learning what it takes to get a business off the ground.
States Made is a full-service merchandise partner for nonprofits, political campaigns and socially conscious businesses. We believe in the power of a well-designed t-shirt to raise vital funds and increase awareness of important issues. We create legitimate e-commerce businesses for each of our partners, using best practices for merchandising, marketing, UX and design.
We specialize in creating USA-made and union printed goods, so we’re creating good jobs and ethical merch. We’re gearing up (little pun intended) for the 2018 midterms and are a key partner for many of the most inspiring progressive organizations.
Knead Partners is a social impact strategy consultancy focused on how collaboration and co-design can help orgs and teams bring large-scale impact initiatives to life. We pride ourselves on the “kneading” process of collaborative strategic thinking — the back and forth, push and pull, of creating, refining, and implementing ideas with a diverse group of people. We facilitate convenings, in-person workshops, and co-design sessions to include many voices and ideas in the thinking process, and provide strategic guidance on the design of new programs and initiatives.
We have several large impact initiatives launching in 2019, and are looking for support during this critical formation process.
Who We’re Seeking
We are looking for a jack/jane of all trades to be a key force in whipping both of our operations into shape. Your days will be varied, flexing both your organizational and creative skills, and will include the below. Both States Made and Knead Partners are small and growing companies, and you’ll be sure to gain new and unique skill sets and have a vital hand in this critical juncture of growth.
Tracking orders, maintaining timelines, and staying on top of tasks.
Working with partners and clients.
Developing and refining creative marketing ideas for our clients.
Supporting on logistics and administrative tasks for partners and clients.
Thinking up creative marketing ideas for our clients.
Researching and organizing information.
Editing copying and materials.
