RepresentUs is a carefully curated mix of seasoned political campaigners, policy wonks, advertising experts, designers, and engineers.

The VPPC builds and runs the Political Department, manages its budget, and directs/works closely with a team of senior political staff to ensure success and make adjustments/pivots in response to changing externalities.

Specific requirements include:
