NYC and DC – The Tuesday Company – Internships

I am thrilled to share that my political tech startup, The Tuesday Company, is hiring summer interns. As a Duke alum (T’17) I’d love to invite Duke I&E students to apply. These are unpaid internships, so we are hoping that students are able to get university credit or scholarships.

The Tuesday Company is a progressive, political tech startup. Our app, Team, gives advocacy groups, campaigns, and unions the infrastructure to engage, scale, and activate powerful digital communities. With Team, we can reach as many people as possible and share important information, bring more voices into the discussion, and empower our friends to take action.

Our work is rooted in the conviction that supporting progressive movements will build the future that we believe in. By lowering the barriers to civic engagement, especially for millennials, low-income folks, and communities of color, we are making that future a reality.

This summer, we’re looking for smart and motivated interns to join our NYC and DC team. See tuesdaycompany.com/jobs for more info!
