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 Optimization & Insights team is responsible for helping campaigns and organizations succeed by providing frictionless, actionable insights that enable them to execute on strategic decisions about their fundraising and their supporter relationships. We’re looking for a delivery-oriented Product Manager who has experience with the needs of the campaigns and organizations who use our platform. You will work closely with engineering, design, and stakeholders across ActBlue to gather information about user needs, define and prioritize product requirements, ensure the smooth execution of the Optimization & Insights roadmap, and iterate on improvements through data-driven measurement and validation.
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
- With guidance from other product managers, prioritize and plan the product roadmap and feature discovery for the Optimization & Insights team;
- Manage the day-to-day execution, QA, and launch of roadmap features and projects;
- Research, gather, and distill key insights into product goals, requirements, and success criteria;
- Validate and measure the success of features to inform future product iterations;
- Act as a liaison for cross-departmental stakeholders to represent the needs of campaigns and organizations who use ActBlue;
- Communicate plans, status updates, and risks (plus mitigations) to all stakeholders;
- Triage and escalate urgent issues appropriately and drive them to closure;
- Collaborate and coordinate with engineering, design, and other stakeholders to build high impact user experiences that enable campaigns and organizations to make high level decisions about their digital fundraising.
WHAT YOU'LL BRING:
- 2 years of product management experience
- An interest and willingness to learn about product management best practices
- A deep understanding of the digital fundraising landscape and how progressive advocates use our platform
- A detail-oriented and data-driven mindset with an interest in developing your data skills
- Demonstrable problem-solving abilities and the perseverance to not give up when you don't know the answers right away
- Strong communication skills and empathy with a knack for explaining complicated things simply in both written and verbal communications
- Assessment and decision-making skills, especially when guiding conflicting approaches towards a common objective
- Capacity to balance big picture thinking and execution: the ability to think broadly about long term impact while balancing day-to-day needs to get things done
- Independent project management skills for technical projects: the ability to lead without authority, prioritize critical-path or high-impact activities amongst ambiguity, and keep complicated work efforts moving forward
- Competent in authoring concise, well-formed documentation
