Summary

Have you created your own mash-up or hosted your own blog? American Progress supports dozens of websites and blogs; you can help us add features, launch new projects, and get involved in creating online campaigns.

American Progress is an open-source environment that uses WordPress, ExpressionEngine, Drupal, EzPublish, and Zope as platforms and PHP, Python, and JavaScript as its primary development languages. We are looking for motivated individuals that want to get their hands dirty expanding their web development skills and getting exposed to large and high-volume websites. At a minimum, you should feel comfortable writing HTML and CSS. Your application should include a link to work you have done using HTML and CSS.

Every internship includes an important core of administrative work, including database management, report distribution, and general office support. Other duties include conducting targeted research and reporting on policy meetings, seminars, hearings, and lectures. Whenever possible, interns are encouraged to write on the subject of their choice either as a contributor to a larger final piece or as an individual author of a column for our website.

American Progress operates two separate nonprofit organizations to maximize our progressive agenda: The Center for American Progress and the Center for American Progress Action Fund. This job posting refers collectively to the two organizations under the name “American Progress.” The Center for American Progress is a non-partisan 501(c)(3) tax-exempt research and educational institute. It undertakes research, public education and a limited amount of lobbying. The Center for American Progress Action Fund is a non-partisan 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organization dedicated to achieving progress through action. It works to transform progressive ideas into policy through rapid response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing, political advocacy, and partnerships with other progressive leaders. The organizations share office space and employees.

American Progress is an equal opportunity employer; women, minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
