Job Description

WHO WE ARE:

At ActBlue, we build and run a powerful, modern online fundraising platform for Democratic campaigns, progressive organizations, and nonprofits working to create a better future. We’re a nonprofit organization ourselves, and we work to make it really easy for these groups to run grassroots fundraising programs. The result? We're putting power back in the hands of small-dollar donors.

Since 2004, campaigns and organizations across the country have raised almost $2 billion using our tools, with an average contribution size of $30 right now. Thousands of groups from presidential candidates to environmental organizations to local school board members count on our fundraising tools to fuel their organizing work.

We’re a small (but growing!) team that has a big impact on the future of our country. Each and every one of us is fully committed to our mission and we are looking for new team members who match our passion and are ready to dive in!

THIS ROLE:

The Outreach Team is the primary point of contact and welcome wagon for all new campaigns and organizations that we partner with. We attract new groups and train them to use ActBlue’s tools for grassroots fundraising. Amazing candidates are jumping into local and state races every single day, looking to create change in their communities, and you will focus on these races with a strategic eye towards 2020 redistricting. You will be responsible for bringing on new campaigns as well as strengthening our relationship with groups we already work with by helping them build successful digital fundraising programs.

YOU WILL:

  • Identify, research, and reach out to new campaign and organization leads.
  • Actively establish relationships with emerging federal campaigns.
  • Help existing and new campaigns get the most out of ActBlue.
  • Work in a team to develop priorities and outreach strategies.

YOU ARE:

  • A networker: We are looking for team members who are outgoing and enthusiastic about outreach and building great relationships.
  • Comfortable going solo: While you’ll be working in a larger team, most of your day to day work and outreach will be independently driven and managed.
  • Mission-driven: Our online fundraising technology makes it easy for more supporters to participate in the political process every day. We need people who are passionate about furthering this work and providing the best service to every campaign and organization that we work with.
  • Highly detailed: You proofread, reread, and triple check your work.
  • Tenacious: Good relationship building and outreach is about determination and keeping your eye on the prize.
  • Ready to hit the ground running: Our Outreach team is great at troubleshooting and problem solving. There is no job too big or small and no problem that can’t be tackled by our team members. We’d love to have someone come in day one with a clear picture of local politics in our country and good ideas about where we may be needed!

LOCATION & COMPENSATION:

ActBlue’s office is located in Davis Square in Somerville, MA, just a few blocks from Boston’s MBTA Red Line train. This posting is for a full-time, salaried position centered in our office. We offer a competitive salary and a generous compensation package, including commuter benefits, fully employer paid health, dental, and vision insurance, an employer-sponsored 401k contribution plan, and a flexible time-off policy.
