About Metropolitan Public Strategies

As an innovative progressive public affairs firm, MPS is at the forefront of some of the highest profile political and public affairs advocacy campaigns in New York, Florida and other battleground areas across the country. From providing strategic consulting and campaign management to communications services, research, digital campaign management and creative content production, MPS is a soup to nuts operation for our clients and campaigns.

Applicants should have strong writing, research, campaign and communications skills, familiarity with social media and digital channels – including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, SnapChat, and more – as well as the ability to prioritize and complete multiple daily tasks and organizational projects with accuracy, speech, and independence. Experience working on political, governmental, or issue-based campaigns is preferred.

We run a fast-paced operation which, given the high-profile nature of clients, frequently requires work on evenings, early mornings, and weekends, so flexibility is a must.
