Join the Team


Come work with us!

We’re a motivated team of software developers, political nerds, digital enthusiasts, customer service champions, and lawyers. Together, we’re working to build state-of-the-art fundraising infrastructure for Democratic campaigns and progressive organizations of all sizes, from the Presidential to local city council races across the country.

We set the bar high for ourselves. ActBlue, a political non-profit, is the largest source of funds for Democrats. Every day we handle tens of thousands of contributions from small-dollar donors. That’s our mission in action. And it wouldn’t be possible without a collaborative work environment that values professional growth and innovation.

Each department uses modern best practices with a dash of elbow grease and teamwork to get the job done. Our tech team uses Rails, PostgreSQL, Redis, and Node.js combined with excellent test coverage and efficient code to develop the software that powers ActBlue.

We offer a supportive workplace filled with dedicated, razor-sharp, and creative people and all of the following benefits:

Competitive Compensation
Including a 401(k) with generous matching.

Top-Notch Medical Coverage
Fully-paid, trans-inclusive health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your dependents.

Flexible Work Schedule
We know everyone runs on different schedules, so we do our best to accommodate the working hours that suit you.

Professional Growth
Everyone gets a professional development budget to attend conferences, seminars, or trainings, enroll in courses, and/or join a professional organization.

Generous Paid Time Off
We believe in work-life balance and encourage you to use your time off. We don’t track individual vacation days.

Paid Parental Leave
3 Months of fully paid time off and one month of part time, fully paid flex time. All genders qualify equally, and the policy includes adoptions.

Commuting Options
Your choice of a monthly MBTA pass, business parking pass, commuter rail discount, or bicycle reimbursement. We also provide secure bike parking and tools for repairs on the go.

We’ve seen that a fun and relaxed environment has a direct and positive impact on our collective creativity and productivity. Plus, we really enjoy spending time together!

ActBlue believes that a diverse, inclusive staff and movement is a fundamental strength. Towards that end, we’re committed to hiring people of all races, ethnicities, religions, ages, sex, genders, sexual orientations, or gender identities. Women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, and members of other minority or marginalized groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
