Media Democracy Fund is hiring – for a remote position…

The Media Democracy Fund (MDF) seeks a skilled manager and strategic thought partner experienced with communications and internet rights, technology policy, and development to fulfill its Program Officer position. The Program Officer is responsible for oversight and management of MDF’s grantmaking and contracts program, including grantee and contractor due diligence, grant and contract review, and annual docket development. This position will help design and administer MDF’s robust work with the field, which has a strategic focus on an open, secure and equitable internet through the effective use of research, communications, organizing, litigation, and policy advocacy. The Program Officer works collaboratively with the MDF team, managing the organization’s portfolio, distilling and reporting on key issues and strategies, and actively engaging with field leaders, funding partners, and issue-aligned supporters. The Program Officer must maintain an objective approach to the work and the varying strategies supported. This is a full time (1.0 FTE) position with travel required. MDF staff work remotely from several East coast cities.

While specific project assignments are subject to change at any time, MDF anticipates that, in 2019, the program officer position will work across MDF three priority areas (open, secure and equitable internet), while also supporting emergent initiatives, such as Platform Accountability and/or the Unicorn Fund. MDF is a rapidly growing and evolving organization; the portfolio management responsibilities for this position are subject to change.
