ActBlue is the leading source of online funds for the Democratic Party and an innovator in the field of grassroots politics. We build tools that are used by hundreds of thousands of people to change the country everyday. We're an established player (eight years strong!) gearing up to make a huge impact on the 2012 election season....and we need you for our team.
Don't be misled by our "so-2006" look (goes along with being one of the oldest rails sites), we don’t mess around. We use best in class tools (rails, postgresql, resque/redis, memcached, jquery, chef) and methods (github, extensive automated testing, continuous integration, deployment, cloud hosting) to deliver the best technology in politics. We are collaborative. We are nimble. We are experts.
You'll be an essential contributor to a small team of
opinionated bearded cyclists professionals in our Harvard Square office. You'll have significant responsibility right out of the gate and a voice in designing our architecture and the features we build. You’ll have plenty of leeway to choose the best tools and technologies to implement those features.
We offer autonomy, responsibility, an amazing workplace (full of people geeking out about politics and tech all day), competitive salary, and a benefits package that includes 401k, health, dental, vision, transportation subsidies, and the opportunity to have an outsized impact on politics. Join us.
