Email Intern


Email advocacy, fundraising, and production.

Want to break into email? Get your start with us! Middle Seat is a consulting agency that works with some of the biggest names in progressive politics. We work with campaigns, nonprofits, and advocacy organizations on the front lines of racial justice, climate action, immigration rights, intersectional feminism, and economic justice. We’re looking for a creative self-starter to join our email team as a paid intern.

What’s the role involve?

As an email intern at Middle Seat, you’ll work with our email team to write emails, you’ll use CRM platforms to code and produce emails, you’ll pull performance metrics and help assemble email reports, you’ll help analyze email performance, and you’ll also handle some email-related administrative tasks.


This role is for you if:

  • You’re excited to work with progressive clients
  • You’re interested in email as a tool for communication, organization, mobilization, and fundraising
  • You enjoy the idea of testing different email creative options and analyzing their performance
  • You’re technically adept and/or you can learn new tools and platforms easily

It would be nice if you:

  • Have a background in email, particularly for fundraising
  • Know the basics of HTML coding
  • Have some experience with at least one email platform (NGP/EveryAction, ActionKit, Action Network, etc.)
  • Have worked on or with political campaigns or organizations, or a nonprofit
  • Are a fantastic writer with great attention to detail

And it’s essential that you:

  • Are committed to working for progressive political candidates and causes
  • Are a team player
  • Have full-time or near full-time availability


We offer a salary of $20 per hour, as well as a commuter stipend, with the potential for post-graduate employment for the right candidates. This position is not part of the union bargaining unit.

We are committed to building a diverse and passionate team. We encourage creative-minded individuals with a strong technical aptitude to apply for this position. Women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals are encouraged to apply.

Our firm is values-driven. We are intentional with the decidedly left-of-center clients we work with — and we strive to make our work environment and benefits reflect that, including salary transparency, healthy work-life balance, and consistent employee feedback and communication. We’re happy to talk more about our company culture with prospective applicants.
