Impactive (formerly Outvote), backed by YCombinator and Higher Ground Labs, was founded in 2017 as a get-out-the-vote tool for Democrats. The Impactive product has since expanded to become an all-in-one hub for digital organizing, powering the organizing efforts of some of the country’s largest progressive organizations.
In the 2018 midterms, volunteers contacted over 1 million voters using Impactive. In 2020, we scaled significantly to meet the demand of this unprecedented election cycle. We’ve worked with over 500 clients nationwide, and volunteers have sent over 150 million text messages on behalf of Planned Parenthood, the DCCC, SEIU, Community Change, When We All Vote, Greenpeace, and campaigns up and down the ballot. Our work has been featured in The New York Times, Washington Post, TechCrunch, Fast Company, and many more.
In 2021, Impactive will expand its platform further into nonprofit, advocacy, and additional markets. This will be an exciting time to play a critical role in helping shape the direction for what's coming next. We will continue to prioritize our progressive values while building a feature-rich platform that will broaden our reach across the impact space.
About the Role
Impactive’s Account Executives are responsible for closing new business suited for Impactive’s unique set of organizing tools. They research prospects, deliver product demonstrations, resolve outstanding questions, close new accounts, and work with the Client Strategies team to renew contracts with existing clients.
The ideal candidate should be comfortable and articulate as a presenter, accountable to ongoing metrics for success, and eager to become fluent in the political technology industry. They will work to make sure Impactive is building and maintaining strong relationships across an array of customer segments, including progressive and Democratic activist organizations, 501c4s, 501c3s, electoral campaigns, and political action committees (PACs).
We don’t expect individual candidates to have expertise across all of these areas—we’re looking for candidates that are particularly strong in a few areas, and are excited to learn in others.
We eagerly accept applicants with diverse backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. Impactive is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate our employees’ differences, and know that differences — of all kinds — make us infinitely stronger.
