MoveOn is a diverse and vibrant community of millions of people working together to create progressive change in America. We are an innovative campaigning organization that supports people throughout the country to take action through driving impactful campaigns that influence the behavior of people and institutions, shape the outcomes of elections, and expand the realities of what’s possible. We organize to challenge entrenched power, while pursuing economic, racial, and social justice and a vision of a country in which everyone can thrive.

MoveOn has a vital role to play in securing progress during the Biden-Harris administration and in organizing the grassroots to set up election wins in 2021, 2022, and beyond. We are building a powerful, multiracial, and economic populist movement, and we’re fighting for progress on health care, climate, racial justice, and more. In service of that mission, in 2021 and beyond, MoveOn will drive impactful, movement-connected, multichannel, nimble campaigns aimed at impact.

We are looking for a motivated Product Manager Intern to join the Product team to help assess and improve our digital toolset. This role will provide significant hands-on experience working with diverse stakeholders to turn user feedback into real products and will be critical for setting the direction of at least one of our major tools to fuel our campaigning in 2021 and beyond.


  • Conduct market research, user interviews, and user testing and analyze learnings to identify pain points and opportunities to improve MoveOn’s digital toolset.
  • Summarize findings and propose feature prioritization and decisions for MoveOn tools (which may include merch, events, and/or other campaigning tools).
  • Write detailed user stories, acceptance criteria, and other documentation of key digital tools to support QA.
  • Work collaboratively with the Product team and cross-team stakeholders to launch key features or tools, including supporting onboarding training, QA, and measuring impact.
  • Using industry-standard apps, test web pages for functionality across browsers, resolutions, and devices and report any bugs or inconsistencies as needed.
  • Perform web content updates as needed.

A successful candidate will

  • Demonstrate empathy for users and creatively solve problems through brainstorming and testing solutions.
  • Have strong prioritization and decision-making skills, including incorporating diverse and sometimes conflicting feedback to propose difficult decisions and explain the why.
  • Have strong communication and writing skills, including being able to translate between technical and nontechnical audiences.
  • Show interest in or experience with progressive activism, advocacy, organizing, or politics.

Required skills and experience

  • Previous experience as a product owner, associate, or manager in a minimum of 1 or more roles (minimum 6 months; internships apply).
  • Strong qualitative and quantitative research and analysis skills (at least one project in a work or school setting where you utilized these skills for at least 6 months). 
  • Strong equity analysis and demonstrated understanding, commitment to, and prioritization of racial and social justice, and experience working effectively with different constituencies.
  • Self-directedness—MoveOn is a virtual office, and while you will interact with your colleagues constantly, you will be driving your own workflow and output. Excellent personal organization and time management skills are key.
  • Keen attention to detail and highly dependable work ethic.
  • Ability to work well under pressure within a fast-paced, high-performing team.
