WHO WE ARE:

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.

We’re a nonprofit organization, and our team has a big impact on the future of our country. 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. 

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

The Assistant will provide administrative support to their assigned department: Democratic Politics and Elections (DPE). As we are still scaling, Assistants will be assigned to specific work teams to be embedded in strategy and work as needed.

PRINCIPAL RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Provide administrative and scheduling support for the Director;
  • Help track information that assists teams in gauging progress to goals and accomplishing their work plans;
  • Provide administrative support to team projects;
  • Provide support as needed for team meetings, including, but not limited to, scheduling and logistical support;
  • Help write memos, prepare powerpoints, and prepare other reports as needed;
  • Work collaboratively with other assistants across teams and departments;
  • Support and/or manage the Director’s work schedule to ensure adequate time is allocated for meeting key priorities;
  • Perform other administrative projects and specific duties as requested.

WHAT YOU BRING:

  • 0-2 years working in a professional environment;
  • Experience working in a fast paced, problem solving role preferred;
  • Self-starter mentality: capable of working independently, but motivated by being part of  a team effort that pushes forward ActBlue’s goals and mission; 
  • Clear and compassionate written and verbal communications skill set;
  • Strong organizational skills, with keen attention to detail and fidelity in following up on identified next steps;
  • Ability to handle confidential information;
  • Electoral experience, including volunteer or internships, is preferred.

We are authorized to support remote work in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Washington DC.

ActBlue offers generous, competitive compensation, and provides fully paid and trans-inclusive health, dental, and vision insurance and an employer-sponsored 401k contribution plan. ActBlue will also provide the technology and hardware needed to do the job. 

Salary Range:  $50,000-60,000 based on experience.
