WHO WE ARE:

ActBlue is a nonprofit that builds tech and infrastructure for Democratic campaigns, progressive-aligned causes, and people trying to make an impact in order to fuel long-term, people-powered change. If you’ve ever given online to a Democrat or progressive organization, chances are you’ve used our powerful online fundraising platform.

We put power in the hands of small-dollar donors and help thousands of groups — from presidential candidates to environmental organizations — build grassroots movements. We envision a democracy where everyone looking to make progressive people-powered change can easily and effectively deploy their resources, energy, and creativity to shape our country and futures. 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.

THE OPPORTUNITY:

The assistant will support ActBlue’s expanded Movement, Issue, & Charitable Organizations (MICO) Department which works to support nonprofit organizations that use ActBlue for digital fundraising and organizing. This role will report directly to the MICO Director and utilize a unique skill set to help move department priorities forward. Primary responsibilities will include scheduling, providing administrative support, and creating systems across the MICO Department to align benchmarks and other departmental coordination. 

Areas of Responsibility: 

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

Calendaring & Administrative Support

  • Manage the MICO Director’s daily and weekly calendar, including but not limited to scheduling internal recurring MICO Team, Outreach Team, and one-on-one meetings.

  • Build and maintain a program calendar with deadlines for various teams within MICO.

  • Proactively manage the MICO Director’s monthly and quarterly calendars so they are synced to the organization’s broader strategic priorities.

  • Prepare the MICO Director for weekly commitments and meetings, and ensure they have relevant materials, IT-enabled equipment, and logistics support. 

 

Meeting Support (Internal & External) 

  • Drive and own operational and technical logistics for department meetings including team and off-site meetings and external events. 

  • Help prepare the MICO Director for upcoming meetings and events by assisting with presentations, talking points, and other necessary materials.

  • Plan and book the MICO Director's work-related domestic travel arrangements, including managing costs and expense reimbursement actions.

  • Perform other administrative projects and specific duties as requested.

 

Project Management Support 

  • Provide project management support from introduction to completion on a multitude of projects, including executing against deadlines, tracking progress, communicating with stakeholders, clarifying deliverables, and editing final projects.

  • Help track information that assists MICO teams in gauging progress toward goals.

  • Create, update, and track information for staff within the Outreach Department. 

  • Support Outreach hiring managers by communicating throughout the Outreach hiring process, scheduling interviews, communicating with candidates, tracking hiring progress, and reporting any updates to the MICO Director weekly. 

  • Coordinate with the other Outreach Department assistants on various projects and participate in weekly assistant meetings.

Skills/Experience: 

WHAT YOU BRING:

  • One to two years of experience working in a professional environment.

  • A self-starter mentality: capable of working independently, but motivated by contributing to ActBlue’s goals and mission. 

  • Problem-solver approach: can identify problems and figure out the best solution to work through them with limited guidance.
