ABOUT THE LUKENS COMPANY:

Are you looking to join an established (but growing) political marketing agency serving right-leaning PACs, candidates, party committees, and grassroots lobbying organizations? Are you interested in fundraising, membership, political advocacy and/or voter contact? Is it important to you to work with energetic, motivated, knowledgeable teammates who believe in our clients and in each other?

You’ll find all that and then some at The Lukens Company, where we are seeking interns to join our Political Division and manage direct mail and multi-channel marketing campaigns for our growing list of clients across the Republican spectrum.

Working from our corporate headquarters in Arlington, VA, you will spend your time helping congressional candidates raise money, strengthening the membership bases of organizations fighting for free markets and limited government, coming up with killer hooks for voter contact mail that moves the needle in our clients’ direction, and strategizing video ads for viral distribution, sometimes all in the same day (kidding! sort of). And you’ll be doing it all alongside the best team in politics.

Our culture is dynamic, fast-paced, and fun!
