At ActBlue, we build and power the premier online fundraising platform for Democratic campaigns and progressive organizations. We put power in the hands of small-dollar donors and make giving online as easy as possible. And we work with thousands of Democrats across the country from the President to Senators to school board candidates.
The most rewarding part? Our work has led to a transformation of the power structures in this country. It takes all types to make ActBlue go, from political junkies to number whizzes to designers and writers. We pride ourselves on working hard as a small team to create big change. And we’re looking for more great people to join us.
