Careers

StandUnited is a nimble start-up on a mission to empower people everywhere to take a stand on the issues they care about. We mobilize center-right audiences to behind causes that champion free enterprise, personal liberty, limited government, and more—and work with key decision makers in politics and policy to drive solutions for their organizations.

With over 1.5 million signatures and growing rapidly, StandUnited is building a strong community of supporter-activists who take meaningful action on important issues of our times. Activists have come to StandUnited to successfully petition Congress to repeal the Medical Device Tax created under Obamacare and to demand that Hillary Clinton turn over her private email server. At the state level, people have used StandUnited to save Confederate War Memorials from historical revisionists and fight for better mental health care for incarcerated veterans.

But this is only the beginning.
