    ABOUT REPRESENTUS
    RepresentUs is the nation’s leading right-left anti-corruption organization. We bring together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to secure crucial victories that are defending our Republic and fixing America’s corrupt political system.

    But what it means for you, potential coworker, is that you feel what we feel when you wake up every day: a strong sense of purpose that binds you to the spirit of this nation, and an overwhelming sense that you should do something about it. And you want to work with people who feel the same.

    RepresentUs is a carefully curated mix of seasoned political campaigners, policy wonks, advertising experts, designers, and engineers. We’re not a startup, but we’ve got startup DNA: we’re nimble, constantly learning and iterating, and we push ourselves to push the envelope—to ignore “industry standards” and set a new standard.

    We’re looking for enthusiastic new minds to help us grow, move faster, and achieve more. We believe our political system should reflect the varied voices of our nation, and so should our team. That’s why we’re an Equal Opportunity Employer; people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

    In 2018, we helped pass 23 anti-corruption measures—a historic year for the movement.

    We’re headquartered in Northampton, MA and also have staff around the country. Come win with us!

    ABOUT YOU
    You’re an experienced digital campaign strategist and team director with proven chops at leading multi-channel issue or political campaign messaging. You’ve worked in an advocacy organization before, and you know how to take creative digital campaigns from concept through execution. You’re an excellent writer who knows what gets people riled up, and you’re an expert at talking to different audiences in different formats. You have a knack for knowing what’s going to resonate on social media, and you love telling big narratives over time.

    You’re a skilled project and people manager, but you also have an analytical side: you know the tools of the trade and how to analyze data.

    You’re adept at anticipating needs, comfortable taking initiative and direction, and are an effective problem solver and communicator.

    And, you’re ready to do it all on a full-time basis from our headquarters in Northampton, MA or our office in San Francisco, CA.

    ABOUT THE ROLE
    Reporting to the Movement Director, the Digital Director (DD) manages, maintains, and grows RepresentUs’ online presence to strengthen our brand, recruit members, and convert members into volunteers.

    – At least 2 years experience managing an email list of over 100,000 people
    – Excellent writing and editing skills: you know when anything is misspelled, and you always win a fight about grammar

    RepresentUs is the nation’s leading right-left anti-corruption organization. We bring together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to secure crucial victories that are defending our Republic and fixing America’s corrupt political system.

    But what it means for you, potential coworker, is that you feel what we feel when you wake up every day: a strong sense of purpose that binds you to the spirit of this nation, and an overwhelming sense that you should do something about it. And you want to work with people who feel the same.

    RepresentUs is a carefully curated mix of seasoned political campaigners, policy wonks, advertising experts, designers, and engineers. We’re not a startup, but we’ve got startup DNA: we’re nimble, constantly learning and iterating, and we push ourselves to push the envelope—to ignore “industry standards” and set a new standard.

    We’re looking for enthusiastic new minds to help us grow, move faster, and achieve more. We believe our political system should reflect the varied voices of our nation, and so should our team. That’s why we’re an Equal Opportunity Employer; people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

    In 2018, we helped pass 23 anti-corruption measures—a historic year for the movement.

    We’re headquartered in Northampton, MA and also have staff around the country. Come win with us!

    ABOUT YOU
    You’re a data person. You’d describe yourself as a problem-solver and detective: you’re someone who loves to get to the bottom of things. You know what questions to ask to lead you in the right direction, and you enjoy answering questions that don’t have an obvious solution. You love nerding out over a spreadsheet, but you’re also able to communicate with people who don’t speak data. You can query the database, look through thousands of rows of dirty data, clean it up, and find the one metric that we need to hear to act on it. You’re critical (you don’t get fooled by vanity metrics), but you’re a realist (you can separate the signal from the noise). When you see a problem, you’re quick to come up with possible solutions. And you’re excited to put your skills to work full-time for the anti-corruption movement, in our San Francisco, CA or Northampton, MA offices.

    WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
    Under the direction of the Digital Director, the Marketing Analyst will provide reporting and analysis to the entire team.

    Your responsibilities will include:

    – Building and maintaining ongoing reports and dashboards to track performance across the organization
    – Leveraging a broad and diverse suite of analytical tools to measure progress toward organizational goals
    – Working with colleagues from all departments to identify and define metrics that will help track progress toward organizational goals
    – Analyzing data to challenge assumptions and uncover new growth and member engagement opportunities
    – Clearly communicating insights to stakeholders so that they can be acted upon
    – Developing and implementing databases, data collection systems, data analytics, and other strategies that optimize statistical efficiency and quality
    – Acquiring data from primary or secondary data sources and maintaining databases/data systems
    – Identifying and defining new process improvement opportunities

    SKILLS
    – Proven working experience as a data analyst
    – Strong knowledge of database design, construction, and querying. Interaction with SQL or similar database platform will be a daily task.
    – Expert knowledge of Google Analytics and CRM systems like NationBuilder, ActionKit, or similar
    – Strong knowledge of and experience with reporting packages (e.g. Business Objects), databases (e.g. SQL), and programming (e.g. XML, Javascript, or ETL frameworks)
    – Experience with data reporting and visualization. Adept at queries, report writing, and presenting findings.
    – Technical expertise regarding data models, database design development, data mining and segmentation techniques
    – Knowledge of statistics and experience using statistical packages for analyzing datasets (Python, R, SPSS, or similar platforms)
    – Strong analytical skills with the ability to collect, organize, analyze, and disseminate significant amounts of information with attention to detail and accuracy
    – BS in Mathematics, Economics, Computer Science, Information Management or Statistics, or equivalent demonstrable work experience a plus.

    COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS
    We’re committed to bringing in top talent from all sectors. Accordingly, we offer competitive salaries and pretty awesome benefits, including health and dental insurance, a health reimbursement account, wellness perks, a dependent care account, and a retirement benefit. Plus employer-funded short-term disability and life insurance.

    Oh, and we have this wild idea that we’ll do better work if we have time to see our friends and families, so we get four weeks of paid vacation a year, plus personal and sick time.

    Salary Range: Junior to mid: $90K – $110K annually (depending on location and experience)
    Mid to senior: $110K-$130K annually (depending on location and experience)
    Benefits: Vision, dental, & medical insurance; 403(b) retirement savings plan; generous vacation policy; long-term disability; employee assistance program
    Level: Multiple levels, junior through senior

    Organizational overview

    At Democracy Works, we believe voting should fit the way we live. To that end, we build technology for both voters and election administrators that simplifies the process, and ensures that no voter should ever have to miss an election.

    TurboVote, our first service, helps voters register, stay registered, and cast a ballot in every election, from municipal to national. We’ve signed up more than seven million voters for by building the largest college, nonprofit, and corporate voter engagement coalition in the country, including more than 300 campuses, nonprofits like Headcount, the Sierra Club, Climate Strikes, and the Hispanic Federation, companies like Starbucks, Univision, Facebook, Google, Snap, and dozens more. We also helped (basically) everyone find their polling place through the Voting Information Project. Its data had 123 million impressions in 2016, and over 11 million voters looked up where to vote on GetToThePolls.com. Ballot Scout helps election administrators track absentee ballots through the mail, providing transparency in the vote-by-mail process and making it easier to follow up when things go awry. And in 2018, we became the organizational home of the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED).

    We are currently looking for developers for all our projects, at a variety of levels. Experience with the technologies listed below is helpful, but not necessary; we hope you’ll bring excitement to learn what you haven’t seen yet. We support junior team members by explicitly setting aside time for learning, and providing training from a more experienced developer.

    In addition to full-time hires, we’re also looking for two senior, temporary hires for the Voter Engagement team to work with us until the end of 2020 as we prepare for the November general election.

    Candidates joining our Voter Engagement team will work on TurboVote and the Democracy Works API. You’ll join eight other software developers and an engineering manager to collaborate with the product and partnership teams in building software that helps voters and future voters. The technology that underpins this work is mostly microservices written in Clojure running in Docker containers on Kubernetes hosted on AWS. These services communicate over RabbitMQ and store their data in Datomic. The web front-ends are written in ClojureScript backed by React.

    Candidates joining the Election Administration team will be working on either the Voting Information Project (VIP), or Ballot Scout. For VIP, you’ll join two other software developers to collaborate with the product and data collection teams in building software that helps collect, validate, QA, and publish data about elections, which in turn service millions of queries in major election years. For Ballot Scout, you’ll join a team of two that enables seamless tracking of ballots through the United States Postal Service and allows both voters and election administration officials to monitor progress of the ballots to and from election offices. The technologies that underlay these systems are written in Clojure, Clojurescript, Javascript, Python, and Go, with an emphasis in moving active development towards Clojure and Clojurescript. Infrastructure is hosted on AWS, and developers are beginning the process of migrating to a Kubernetes based deployment.

    You will:

    – Write code
    – Participate in processes to build our products
    – Report progress and roadblocks to the team
    – Help others
    – Work on professional development
    – Take the lead when a leader is needed
    – Communicate in documentation, PRs/tickets/stories, PR review, standups, and with non-technical stakeholders
    – Make compromises

    You are:

    – Detail-oriented and thorough in your work
    – Excited to learn about the voter engagement process and fixing our voting infrastructure
    – Empathetic
    – Curious

    You have experience:

    – Writing and shipping code
    – Working within a team of developers
    – Making tradeoffs in your work

    Physical demands: This position requires regular, daily use of a computer to conduct work and communicate with colleagues.

    Social expectations: You will have regular 1:1s with an Engineering Manager and regular meetings with the developers and product managers you work with.

    Time and travel expectations: Democracy Works’s regular operating hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Eastern time. Two times per year, all full-time staff members participate in a five day retreat in our Brooklyn offices. All staff is held each year in May and November.
