Overview

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: 

We are looking for a DevOps Engineer to join ActBlue and help us support the growth of our platform.

Our engineering and product organization is made up of 110+ people (and growing!), and we are organized into cross-functional teams of 3-6 people with clear areas of product focus. On the application side, we work with Ruby on Rails, Postgres, React, Typescript, GraphQL, etc., relying on AWS for cloud infrastructure with compute resources in EKS and utilizing CI/CD tools such as Datadog and CircleCI to help facilitate our DevOps culture.

In this role, you will be joining one of our platform engineering teams. The team you would join focuses on high-impact improvements that enable quicker feedback on the software development lifecycle for developers, using state-of-the-art tools.

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

  • Work cross-functionally with product teams to improve experience within all phases of the software delivery lifecycle.
  • Build tooling to make the development and deployment process as seamless as possible for product teams.
  • Implement enterprise-level monitoring and observability.
  • Practice and encourage a people-focused engineering mentality when working cross-functionally.
  • Engage and contribute to technical discussions around new solutions and architecture.
  • Receive support from your manager and other senior leaders to grow as an individual and increase your impact within ActBlue and for the progressive movement.
  • Be a champion for building a collaborative and inclusive team culture.

WHAT YOU BRING:

  • 2-5 years or equivalent of professional experience working with teams and delivering projects.
  • Experience contributing to the execution of small to medium-sized clearly-scoped projects involving a few engineers.
  • Experience in CI/CD best practices, as well as experience growing Monitoring and Observability practices in technical organizations.
  • A track record of effective collaboration with other engineers to improve processes that make it easy to build reliable software
  • Eagerness to explore and eliminate tech debt
  • A team player mentality. You keep the end user in mind and enjoy hearing feedback from your teammates, yet know when and how to defend your own ideas in a respectful manner.
  • An inclusive and empathetic working style in a remote and distributed work environment
  • An eagerness to learn and grow your skills
  • A passion for ActBlue’s mission to build people-powered movements

  • Tooling We Use: CircleCI, Github Actions, Datadog, Bugsnag, OpenTelemetry
  • Hosting: AWS, Heroku
  • Databases:  PostgreSQL, Redis


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.
  • Security is at the center of everything we do. We are always on the lookout for ways to further harden our platform.
  • 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.
