At ActBlue Technical Services, we build and power the premier 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 and make giving online as easy as possible. Since 2004, campaigns and organizations across the country have raised over $3 billion using our tools, with an average contribution size of $40. Thousands of groups from presidential candidates to environmental organizations to local school board members count on our fundraising tools to fuel their organizing work.

If you’ve ever given online to a Democratic candidate or progressive organization, chances are you’ve used our software. With the 2020 elections already on the horizon, we’re busier than ever helping small-dollar donors resist Trump’s administration.

We are seeking an experienced Product Manager who knows how to define, validate, and communicate a product vision. You should have strong product instincts, as well as an appreciation for and understanding of agile and user-centered design values, principles, and practices. We offer autonomy, responsibility, and amazing colleagues talking about politics and tech all day, plus generous benefits. You could work remotely from anywhere in the U.S., our Somerville, MA HQ, or from our Portland, Oregon office.

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING:

  • Drive the product roadmap, feature discovery, and development for key areas of ActBlue’s fundraising platform
  • Research, gather, and distill key insights into well-formed product goals, requirements, and success criteria
  • Champion the voice of users and stakeholders throughout the product life cycle, adapting approach with feedback from collaborators while staying on-goal and on-strategy
  • Manage the execution, QA, and launch of roadmap features and projects
  • Communicate plans, status, and risks (plus mitigations) to all stakeholders
  • Triage and escalate urgent issues appropriately and drive them to closure
  • Facilitate product education and onboarding amongst internal staff
  • Collaborate with engineering, design, and product to learn, share, and improve upon ActBlue’s product process

WHAT YOU'LL BRING:

  • 3-5 years experience in product management, leading cross-functional teams and the growth of complex web applications, such as consumer or B2B SaaS systems
  • Strong balance of product strategy and execution: The ability to tell a story for the problems you’re solving and the vision you want to realize, balanced with the details of getting it done
  • Strong independent project management skills: The ability to lead without authority, prioritize critical-path or high-impact activities amongst ambiguity, and keep complicated work efforts moving forward
  • Strong assessment and decision-making skills, especially when guiding conflicting objectives towards a common goal
  • Strong communication skills with a team-centric and remote-reliant approach to discussion and collaboration
  • Strong analytical abilities, preferably with site conversion metrics and A/B tests
  • High-competency in authoring concise, well-formed product documentation
  • A real passion for design, usability, and detail
  • Interest in progressive politics

OUR ENGINEERING VALUES:

  • We believe that ideas are more important than technologies.
  • We understand that the tools we build have real-world consequences for millions of people and take that responsibility seriously.
  • We know that code isn’t just a set of instructions for machines, but communication with other humans; style, elegance, and respect are important.
  • We believe that an ability to balance paying off technical debt and rapidly completing a project contributes to the health of the codebase, engineering team, and organization.
  • We believe that being correct isn’t enough; respect for your colleagues and users is fundamental.

We’re a small (but growing!) team that has a big impact on the future of our country. Each and every one of us is fully committed to our mission, and we are looking for new team members who match our passion and are ready to dive in! If you're interested, send your resume to techjobs@actblue.com!
