Paid Internships (remote work)

Anywhere in the United States. Part-time Allows remote

Are you a college or graduate student looking for a paid internship? If so then Vote.org is looking for you!

Vote.org is a fiercely nonpartisan nonprofit startup that uses technology to simplify political engagement, increase voter turnout, and strengthen American democracy. We believe that Americans want to vote, and will vote in higher numbers -- and more consistently -- as voting becomes more convenient. We launched in April of 2016, and have since helped millions of Americans register to vote and cast ballots via a combination of best-in-class technology, and innovative proactive outreach. Most recently, we ran the single largest nonpartisan Get Out The Vote (GOTV) drive in Alabama history.  Our work has the potential to change the outcome of elections by bringing millions more voters into the voting booth.

 

We are especially keen on the following skills/majors:

  • Computer science: we write code, and it's nice if you do as well!
  • Political science: some real world experience to go along with your degree!
  • American studies: this is America, after all.
  • Humanities/liberal arts/any of the soft sciences: the real world is a soft science, promise.

 

Projects you might work on:

  • Building slick front-ends on top of existing APIs, like the Google Civic API or the Ballotpedia API.
  • Research: election rules change constantly, and we need to keep up on them. If you think you might enjoy reading election code (and who wouldn't?), you should apply
  • Fundraising: want to help our fundraising director raise millions of dollars?  Of course you do!

 

Salary:

The pay for this internship is $25 an hour for undergrad students, $45 an hour for graduate students. 

 

To Apply:

Submit at application via Recruiterbox. You’ll need a resume and the ability to answer a handful of short questions in lieu of a cover letter.  Applications are processed on a rolling basis.

Vote.org is deeply committed to diversity. We strongly encourage women, people of color, first-generation Americans, new parents, single parents, people with disabilities, and members of the queer community to apply.
