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’re a tech 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. 

Join us for a unique and rewarding undergraduate internship experience! We will accept applications on a rolling basis through November 19, 2021; we encourage interested applicants to submit their applications as soon as possible.


As a DevOps Intern with ActBlue Technical Services, you will work with experienced DevOps engineers to build, deploy, test, and maintain our SaaS-based fundraising platform. Specific duties will vary by experience and interest. 


  • Pilot a RunDeck instance for the Ops team;
  • Learn how to interact with Kubernetes;
  • Configure a RunDeck server;
  • Learn how to write scripts to automate operations tasks.


  • Progress toward an undergraduate degree in a quantitative field (Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Economics, or Engineering) is preferred;
  • Strong commitment to ActBlue’s mission; 
  • Willingness and ability to work 10-15 hours per week;
  • Excellent organization;
  • Exceptional attention to detail;
  • Great communication skills;
  • Strong computer skills — able to learn and adopt new technologies and systems;
  • Ability to be discreet with sensitive information.
  • Willingness to be a team player.


  • We believe that ideas are more important than technologies.
  • We understand that the tools we build have real-world consequences for millions of people and take that responsibility seriously.
  • Security is at the center of everything we do. We are always on the lookout for ways to further harden our platform.
  • We know that code isn’t just a set of instructions for machines, but communication with other humans; style, elegance, and respect are important.
  • We believe that an ability to balance paying off technical debt and rapidly completing a project contributes to the health of the codebase, engineering team, and organization.
  • We believe that being correct isn’t enough; respect for your colleagues and users is fundamental.


  • Cover letter and resume
  • Phone Interview (30 minutes) 
  • Take-home Written Exercise (30 minutes)
  • Final Zoom Interview with the DevOps team (45 minutes) 

Please note that you will have time to ask questions during each of the interview stages we want to ensure that you have a chance to learn more about this role throughout the process!
