Merit believes that truth and trust can change the world. Our platform helps organizations create, send and verify licenses, credentials, and other people-based statements of truth known as merits. Members in turn benefit by taking control of their valuable personal information while shaping their future based on the opportunities that they are uniquely qualified for.
Merit’s Government team develops campaigns across the United States to advance our mission to connect people to opportunities by maximizing their hard-earned credentials and skills. As part of this mission, Merit works closely with politicians, regulators, and legislators at the city, state and national level across the United States to educate them about the significant benefits Merit can bring to government agencies, the people they serve, and the industry partners who employ them. The Government Affairs team works with innovative governments across the country to launch Merit across a wide range of agencies and departments including licensing & regulatory bodies, workforce, and economic development programs and education systems.
To do this role effectively you will need to be able to pitch the Merit vision to a variety of audiences, including elected officials, agency heads, corporate and nonprofit leaders and workforce members across a diverse region of the United States. The Manager will be responsible for the development of new projects in their given region at the statewide level, from outreach to engagement to hand off to the implementation teams.
The ideal candidate will be passionate about advancing Merit’s mission and helping governments innovate through technology and smart program design, and have experience with or in government, politics, campaigns or advocacy groups. It is a bonus to have business development experience in a startup or other fast-paced company.
Merit is a startup environment where you will be expected to roll up your sleeves, take initiative, and get creative about finding solutions to challenges. This is a full-time position, based remotely (the company is headquartered in Millbrae, CA), with significant travel requirements within the designated region and occasionally elsewhere.
