Senior Software Engineer

Job Description

As a Senior Software Engineer on a small team, you’ll immediately have significant ownership over product direction and engineering architecture, working closely with our Director of Engineering on product strategy and execution.

You will:

  • Work closely with product managers and designers to design and build great products that help campaigns, advocacy groups, and non-profits mobilize volunteers
  • Develop high quality software and architecture that balances maintainability with execution speed
  • Prepare our platform for the exponential scale that is unique to the electoral space — we must be able to handle going from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of users with little notice
  • Build out our internal platform and APIs such that we can nimbly introduce more ways for our partners to to work with their data
  • Drive high-quality engineering standards and architecture across the organization, and help up-level junior engineers to meet those standards
  • Think up a growth experiment or five, and plan prototypes to test them in the lightest way possible
  • Learn about the workflows and needs of our partners and find ways to help them achieve their goals


  • Telecommuting is OK
  • No Agencies Please


You care deeply about empowering ordinary people for progressive causes. We’re a mission-driven company, and everything we do is guided by impact. At the end of the day, we’re here to make a difference

  • You likely have four+ years of professional work experience, ideally in startups where you’ve seen things scale (and break). Note: this is not a requirement, it’s intended to give a rough expectation
  • You have strong technical skills, including the ability to reason through different approaches, write high quality code in a reasonable timeframe, explain tradeoffs, debug your and others’ code, and adjust to changing requirements
  • You’re flexible and able to anticipate change
  • You’re a team player. You’re not afraid to pick up whitespace work that’s needed for a project to succeed
  • You take initiative to raise and solve problems to make the team stronger going forward
  • You’re an eager and fast learner, undaunted by tackling a project in a totally new technology or part of the stack
