WHO WE ARE:

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. We're excited to grow this team and get ready to take on even bigger challenges as we look toward 2020 and beyond.

They will surface campaign needs within ActBlue and closely support campaigns as we teach them about our fundraising platform, all while making sure users are getting the most out of our tools. We’re looking for someone with digital fundraising experience for this role.

ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
  • Serve as a primary point of contact for federal campaign staff to ActBlue from onboarding to ongoing trainings.
  • Actively build and maintain relationships with decision makers on federal campaigns on and off the platform.
  • Develop tools and resources to help campaigns get the most out of ActBlue and build their digital capacity. Manage the production and distribution of best practices.

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills. You understand that details can make or break a successful project and always get the messaging right.
  • Enthusiasm about building strong, ongoing relationships with campaigns and partners.
  • Experience working independently. While you’ll be collaborating and strategizing as part of a team, lots of your day-to-day work and project management will be independently driven and organized.
