Down-ballot elections - including state legislative and municipal elections - have huge consequences for tackling climate change in the US, but are too often under-funded and overlooked. Enter: Climate Cabinet Action, the “Moneyball” of climate politics.
At Climate Cabinet, we’re building game-changing data systems and political strategies to surface the “highest climate impact” local elections - and get candidates the support they need to win.

We’re hiring a Political Manager to join our team. This person will play a key role in evaluating political viability of candidates and climate impact of electoral opportunities by synthesizing internal data and research with on-the-ground experience; maintaining robust organizational systems; tracking impact; and coordinating candidate programming.
