Want a job as an atheist? How about with one of the best organizations in the biz?

American Atheists is hiring!  I guess they’re doing alright for themselves.  This time they’re looking for a public policy director.

If hired, you’d be…

  • Arranging and taking meetings with Congressional and Administration officials.

  • Drafting action alerts for mass emails to American Atheists members.

  • Collaborating with coalitions of national nontheistic and secular organizations to create better outcomes for the nontheistic community in everyday life.

  • Monitoring federal legislative and administrative policies.

  • Monitoring state actions for bills and laws that violate the separation of religion and government.

  • Developing policy proposals related to secularizing the tax code

  • Preparing comments and other position statements.

  • Other tasks as assigned.

Candidates should have at least 3 years of professional experience in public policy and legislative affairs and have a degree in law or related to public policy as well as knowledge of the Constitution, federal government, and the tax code; excellent analytic and problem solving skills; creativity and leadership; knowledge of the legislative process; ability to work independently; and excellent written and verbal skills.

Hrm, this person will have to be knee deep in politics with a degree in law/public policy.  Ah well, maybe their next hire will be for a person who tells the plain truth regardless of who it pisses off.  Although, it seems like AA has plenty of that already.  No wonder they’re my favorites.  :)

If you’re someone who fits this description and wants to work for a great organization (with great people like Dave Silverman, Dave Muscato, Amanda Knief, and Nick Fish), don’t let this opportunity pass you by!

    Arranging and taking meetings with Congressional and Administration officials.

    I’m out. No one would hire a person who would open communications with these groups with “Hey, dumb fuckers.”

      I would, but that’s probably why I’m not in a position to hire such people.
