GetThru is hiring Dialer Monitors to help administer the backend of the ThruTalk calling platform. This is a part-time, hourly position. Dialer Monitors typically work 2-hour shifts to provide coverage while the dialing service is open for calls. The Dialer has variable hours, but can be open from 10 am Eastern to 9 pm Pacific, 7 days a week. Candidates must be able to work at least 2-weekday shifts and 2-weekend shifts.
The Dialer Monitor job is done from home. To do the job, you need access to reliable internet, a laptop or a computer, and a mouse. It helps to be tech-savvy so you can get into our tools quickly.
During a shift, a number will show on the screen and you need to click it within a half-second. Often there a long list of numbers that need to all be clicked in as quick as possible. It is important to be exactly on time so switching shifts goes smoothly and no clicks are missed. You cannot move away from your computer during the shift. It can be a bit intense to click for long periods of time.
- Experience with ThruTalk, administering a dialer, or participating in a calling program
- A demonstrated interest and/or involvement in progressive politics
- Experience or openness to working remotely
- Ability to work non-traditional hours that increase around key peak election cycle dates
While experience matters, we also believe that most skills can be learned, and we care as much about work ethic, creativity, determination, and cultural fit.
This is a remote position. You can work from anywhere in the US as long as you are available for your shifts during US hours, have excellent internet, and the work gets done.
GetThru operates a peer-to-peer text messaging platform (ThruText) and telephone dialing tool (ThruTalk) that political campaigns and other organizations use for large scale 1-to-1 communication.

We have been profitable from day one without VC funding.
