WHO WE ARE:
ActBlue is a nonprofit that builds tech and infrastructure for Democratic campaigns, progressive-aligned causes, and people trying to make an impact in order to fuel long-term, people-powered change. If you’ve ever given online to a Democrat or progressive organization, chances are you’ve used our powerful online fundraising platform.
We put power in the hands of small-dollar donors and help thousands of groups — from presidential candidates to environmental organizations — build grassroots movements. We envision a democracy where everyone looking to make progressive people-powered change can easily and effectively deploy their resources, energy, and creativity to shape our country and futures. Each and every one of us, from the political activists to the tech innovators to the customer service pros, is fully committed to our mission.
The Content Associate position is designed for a writer who is passionate about politics, advocacy, and our work of helping small-dollar donors make an impact. The role primarily focuses on cross-channel content generation, copywriting, and Marketing project support. This person will bring a collaborative, growth mindset to achieve strategic team- and organizational-wide goals. The Content Associate will use market research and audience data to inform ideas and project execution. The ideal candidate will be creative, organized, detail-oriented, and able to efficiently manage multiple projects at once.
