ActBlue builds and maintains a powerful online fundraising platform for Democratic campaigns, progressive organizations, and nonprofits working to create a better future. We put power in the hands of small-dollar donors by making it easier for grassroots supporters to make their voices heard and by helping thousands of groups — from presidential candidates to environmental organizations — build people-powered movements.

If you’ve ever given online to a Democratic candidate or progressive organization, chances are you’ve used our software.

We attract diverse, talented employees and promote an engaging, inclusive culture where team members develop, thrive and catalyze positive change. 

As a Recruiter, you will play an essential role in our company’s growth. You will develop robust sourcing strategies and solutions to build pipelines and proactively capture top talent in a highly competitive market.

  • Develop and lead internal interview trainings and onboarding for interviewers and hiring managers
  • Establish strong relationships across the company and a thorough understanding of the needs of the different teams, and the roles beyond the job descriptions.
