ActBlue builds and maintains a powerful online fundraising platform for Democratic campaigns, progressive organizations, and nonprofits working to create a better future. We put power in the hands of small-dollar donors by making it easier for grassroots supporters to make their voices heard and by helping thousands of groups — from presidential candidates to environmental organizations — build people-powered movements.

We’re a nonprofit organization, and our team has a big impact on the future of our country. 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.

Job title: Copywriter

Reports to: Email Director

The Communications and Marketing Team is looking for an exceptional copywriter to join ActBlue’s Email Team. The Email Team does more than just write fundraising and marketing emails. It’s a group of hardworking and fun people who reward creativity, exploration, and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. We seek out talented individuals who can grow, think, create, and achieve while having a good sense of humor.

As an email storytelling lead in a cross-functional marketing squad, the copywriter will have a rare opportunity to learn and evolve ActBlue’s voice and branding within the email marketing program. Reporting to the Email Director, you will be responsible for pitching creative ideas, working alongside designers and data scientists to create a seamless experience for subscribers, and writing copy that surprises, delights, and converts. This is not a fundraising job, so you will not be responsible for writing fundraising emails.

The ideal candidate is a strategic wordsmith and knows how to connect with people. They find joy in bringing concepts to life and working with others to create the absolute best content possible for our subscribers. The right person for the job is authentic, engaging, smart, and writes email copy to match! And of course, a passion for empowering small-dollar donors and building grassroots movements is a must.


  • Push ActBlue’s email marketing content forward with exceptionally creative ideas, collaborative skills, and strategic thinking.
  • Learn and internalize ActBlue’s branding and voice.
  • Incorporate strategy into your storytelling by taking findings from past emails and applying them to your copy.
  • Collaborate with data, design, and content teams to create incredible marketing emails that connect people to our brand.
  • Constantly improve and innovate. There should be a “Wow” factor in every single piece of copy you write.
  • Continually help shape and guide the email marketing team’s content.


  • Minimum 2+ years of experience writing effective and engaging content for email marketing programs.
  • Ability to pair creative writing with design, data, and analytics.
  • Portfolio that demonstrates exceptional writing and conceptual thinking.
  • Experience working alongside designers and data scientists.
  • Attention to detail — you have an eagle eye for typos and errors.
  • Problem solver — you enjoy a challenge.
  • Find joy in geeking out over everything email.
  • Desire to empower small-dollar donors and help build grassroots movements.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience working for a leading brand, creative, or advertising agency.
  • Basic political knowledge or experience is a plus.
