Have you created your own mash-up or hosted your own blog? American Progress supports dozens of websites and blogs; you can help 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. The Web Technology team is looking for motivated individuals who want to get their hands dirty expanding their web development skills and getting exposed to large, high-volume websites. At a minimum, applicants should feel comfortable writing HTML and CSS. Applications should include a link to work you have done using HTML and CSS.

Other duties may 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 the website.

American Progress operates two separate nonprofit organizations to maximize the 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 nonpartisan 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 nonpartisan 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 internships are awarded on an equal opportunity basis; women, minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
