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.
Our security team is growing, and we are looking for a number of skilled cloud security professionals to join us. As a cloud-native organization, our stack resides entirely within AWS, and we want to ensure that we are doing everything possible to keep our platform, infrastructure, and data secure.

- Identify and implement best practice hardening standards for our infrastructure and the services we rely on.
- Conduct regular threat hunting to identify and remediate any malicious activity.
- Automate security detection and response capabilities.
- Evaluate and recommend new and emerging security products and technologies.
- Provide security consulting to infrastructure teams to ensure initiatives are always following best practice standards.
WHAT YOU BRING:
- Experience working with and securing AWS and its services such as EC2, EKS, GuardDuty, ELB, ECS, IAM, S3, RDS, CloudTrail, CloudFront and AWS Config
- Experience with a programming or scripting language such as Ruby, Go, or Python
- Experience performing incident response in the cloud
- Knowledge of network-based, system-level, and application layer attacks and mitigation methods
- Understanding of identity federation, authentication, and authorization controls
- Experience in reviewing or developing infrastructure-as-a-code using Terraform, ansible, CloudFormation or similar
- Experience securing applications deployed within Amazon Web Services (AWS)
- Consistent track record working on mitigating infrastructure security risks
- Proven experience building security infrastructure tools and products
