ActBlue is Hiring!

ActBlue is on the hunt for some kick-ass individuals to join the team and transform the Democratic Party: a communications genius, a legal mastermind, a blogger's blogger, and entry-level folks ready to learn the new tools of the trade.
If any of these sound like you, please read on. And if any of them sounds like someone you know, please send them this post and point them our way.
Since 2004 ActBlue has sent more than $30 million to over 2,000 Democratic campaigns and committees. We're laying the groundwork for aggressive targets in 2007-08: massive growth of our fundraiser network, increased outreach to thousands of state level campaigns, and raising $100 million for Democratic candidates and committees.
To reach those goals we're seeking comrades-in-arms, so to speak -- super-sharp people who share our political goals, our commitment to rock-solid dependability, our impatience with inefficiency, and our commitment to serving as an honest broker for all Democratic campaigns.
Here are our current openings -- for full descriptions and application info, see http://actblue.com/content/jobs
- Communications & Marketing Directory
- Staff Counsel
- Netroots Coordinator
- Political Associate
- Office Manager
Key qualities we're looking for in applicants for all positions:
- Serious written and oral communication skills
- Serious attention to detail
- Serious willingness to do whatever needs to be done
- Serious commitment to Democratic victory
We are extremely selective in who we hire. You'll be working with a close-knit team in a rather free-wheeling environment that rewards initiative. You'll need to learn quickly and grow comfortable making independent (and correct!) decisions. Political or campaign experience is often helpful, but not a requirement.
All positions are full-time in Boston. Come join us!
