Mobilize is the events management and volunteer recruitment platform that connects mission-driven organizations and their supporters. 

In just 2 years, our platform has helped nearly 2,000 advocacy organizations and political campaigns (including Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the Human Rights Campaign, and 20 Presidential campaigns) sign up 1.7 million supporters for volunteer action and events.

Our team comes from Airbnb, Bain & Company, Condé Nast, Facebook, Hustle, McKinsey, Medium, Mixpanel, The New York Times, Quora, and various political campaigns and governmental organizations.

We’ve just closed a $3.75m Series A round; our investors include Higher Ground Labs, Lowercase Capital, New Media Ventures,  Propel Capital, 32 Ventures, Meetup co-founder Scott Heiferman, and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman.

We are committed to building a workplace that reflects the diversity of volunteers and organizations that we exist to serve. We especially encourage women, people who identify as LGBTQ, people of color, and others who are underrepresented in the technology and nonprofit sectors to apply.

The Role:

You will be Mobilize’s first People Operations hire and will be instrumental in helping our company scale up from its small, scrappy roots and retain top talent.

Note: this role is located in DC or New York City.

What you’ll do:

  • Help us nurture a mission-oriented, diverse and anti-oppressive employee experience that is high-empathy, but also high-performance
  • Serve as a trusted resource to all employees, including the leadership team, to coach them through their careers and interpersonal conversations
  • Set and drive accountability on company-wide standards for performance management and professional development

  • Manage recruiting efforts with insights on headcount planning, interview processes (with bias reduction mechanisms), internal initiatives, and by managing contract recruiters.

Who you are:

  • Have 5 or more years leading People/HR within a progressive organization and / or start up
  • Experienced with creating HR systems and processes and not just executing them, including performance evaluation, compensation bands, and paths of growth
  • Empathetic communicator who connects easily with people of all different backgrounds, skills, roles, and perspectives
  • Excited about the values and mission of our company, and the ability to inspire others to feel the same
  • Experienced with building out Diversity, Equity and Anti-Oppression programs and initiatives


  • Competitive salary
