Want to break into digital? Get your start with us. Middle Seat is a full-service firm for progressive causes and candidates. We work with campaigns, nonprofits, advocacy organizations, and causes on the front lines of racial justice, climate action, privacy and tech policy, immigration rights, and economic justice.

We’re looking for a creative self-starter to join our team as a paid digital advertising intern for Summer 2024 (June – August 2024).


What does the role involve?

As an advertising intern at Middle Seat, you’ll work with the advertising team by trafficking ads, writing ad copy and petitions, pulling together reports, analyzing ads performance, handling some administrative tasks, and other responsibilities as requested.

This role is available either remote or in-person at our Washington, DC office.

This role is for you if:

  • You’re excited by the idea of working for left-wing and Democratic clients doing great work on the ground
  • You enjoy the idea of testing different creative options and analyzing performance data of each testing variant
  • You’re technically adept and pick up new tools easily
  • You’re detail-oriented and organized
  • You’re a senior, in your last year of an undergraduate program, or a recent grad

It would be nice if you:

  • Have a background in social media management or digital advertising
  • Have worked on a political campaign, advocacy organization, or nonprofit
  • Have some experience in Facebook Business Manager and Google Ads
  • Are a fantastic writer

And it’s essential that you:

  • Are committed to working for progressive political campaigns
  • Are a team player
  • Follow along with the news of the day and have a solid understanding of the U.S. political system, political campaigns, and key progressive issues (i.e. abortion, racial justice, labor, climate change, etc.)
  • Can commit to full-time (40-hour work week) or near full-time availability, with consistent hours each week (our hours are Monday to Friday, 9 AM – 6 PM ET)
  • Are based in the United States


We offer a salary of $20 per hour. 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 strongly encouraged to apply.

Our firm is values-driven. We are intentional with the progressive 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.
