At Anne Lewis Strategies, we help clients create revolutionary digital strategies that advance their mission, change our country, and have a positive impact on the world.
 
We’re digital-obsessed, tech-savvy do-gooders who care deeply about social change. We’ve brought digital strategies to life for presidential campaigns; huge races for the U.S. Senate and House and gubernatorial campaigns; and nonprofit organizations working around the world, including the International Rescue Committee, Sandy Hook Promise, Amnesty International, and Mercy Corps.
 
We’re an equal-opportunity employer and take seriously our commitment to equality and equity. Our efforts to be inclusive and create opportunity don’t end when someone joins us – they begin.
 
We’ve set our sights on changing the world through our work and with our clients, and representation is at the foundation of what we do. We know that diversity of thought and background makes us stronger. That’s why we’re committed to building and maintaining a diverse community.

Every new team member is a chance to broaden our perspective and think bigger. We’ll be at our best when people from underrepresented communities and people with a range of perspectives and lived experiences want to come, stay, and push the boundaries of what’s possible.

Our social media writer & strategist supports a world-changing nonprofit by driving Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram conversations between K-12 educators. As a member of our team, you’ll collaborate with our account and content strategists to transform teachers’ likes, shares, and comments into insights that can make a difference in classrooms. You’ll be the voice of the organization across social channels, using social listening tools and good judgment to spot trends, surface opportunities, and inform ways our program can respond to educators’ needs and support more equitable outcomes for students.
