Writer, Pulso, Miami, FL

Job Posted Sep 21, 2018 | Journalism

Writer, Pulso, Miami, FL

Writer
Pulso - New Digital Media Venture for the Latino Community

Background : Accelerate Change, a civic venture lab, is incubating a new digital organizing venture that
by 2020 aims to develop deep (daily or weekly) digital relationships with over 1 million Latino/Hispanic
individuals across the country and to achieve full financial self-sustainability. Our ultimate goal is to
leverage this digital platform to advance policy change by building Latino/Hispanic power through
increased advocacy and voter engagement.

Accelerate Change works to build large-scale, financially self-sustainable enterprises to advance social
and environmental causes. We are a unique group of people who love A/B tests, excel spreadsheets,
and making lasting, positive social change. We think big, but get our hands dirty everyday as we build
innovative new services to serve large groups of people.

Pulso will draw from the lessons of other high-growth digital organizing ventures that Accelerate Change
has incubated including PushBlack, ParentsTogether, and Revolution English. These ventures have
developed high-growth models that combine several key elements:
● A daily (or nearly daily) media service that provides high value content to subscribers. For
example, PushBlack provides daily black history stories to over 600,000 subscribers; Revolution
English provides daily English language learning lessons to over 240,000 immigrant subscribers.
This daily media service is the crux of the relationship with subscribers and the driver of growth
and financial sustainability for the ventures.
● Regular advocacy on issues that are important to their community; e.g. criminal justice reform
campaigns by PushBlack; affordable child care campaigns by ParentsTogether.
● High-impact voter registration and get-out-the-vote campaigns that capitalize on the deep,
trusted relationship built from daily engagement.
● Financial sustainability through ad revenue, sponsorships, and other monetization strategies. To
learn more about our framework read lean startup methodologies and to understand our theory
of scale for civic organizations, read our Stanford Social Innovation Review article, The Secret of
Scale.

For an example of the type of digitally-based service we intent to build for the Latino/Hispanic
population, search for “PushBlack” in the Facebook Messenger app.

Position Description : We are looking for prolific, curious writers that live and breather Latinx content.
The fundamental responsibility for this role is to write stories for our daily content service aimed at
attracting over a million subscribers to Facebook Messenger. The ideal candidate will have a keen sense
of humor and be able to explain topics ranging from the need to pass a clean Dream Act to coming up
with Latino history trivia in a compelling, irreverent, conversational manner.

Qualifications : We are looking for someone who is:
● A prolific writer able to capture our audience’s attention just as well in 280 characters or a
longer-form feature
● Committed to and understands the issues that the US-based Latino community faces
● Highly entrepreneurial and thrives in a fast-paced, unstructured digital environment
● Eager to learn, iterate, pivot and experiment along with the rest of the team
● A visual storyteller with multi-platform experience
(FB, websites, YouTube, Instagram, T.V., blogs, newsletters, newspapers, audio, etc.)
● Adept in using a variety of technology tools (Photoshop, etc.)
● Comfortable working remotely
We prefer someone who is
● Is familiar with Facebook ads, Messenger bots, and/or Wordpress
● Fluent in Spanish
Salary & Benefits : Negotiable contracting rates.

To Apply : Send a cover letter and resume to liz@acceleratechangenetwork.org . Put: “Interest in Pulso
Writer position” in the subject line.

Also, because we want to make sure you have the media chops we’re looking for, please complete the
following exercise and send along with your cover letter and resume.
In 200 words (images/video/audio/or other interactive elements welcome) present us with an interesting
story about your favorite Latinx historical figure or historical moment about our Latino community in the
U.S.
Good luck!
