Our focus in 2019 through 2021 is on a cryptography SDK for Microsoft (ElectionGuard) and a fully-featured open source and open hardware voting system demonstrator for DARPA-funded secure hardware.

    This latter system, called the BESSPIN Voting System, will be debuted at DEF CON 2020. An early version was demonstrated at DEF CON 2019. Releases leading up to DEF CON 2020 will include additional components of a full-blown traditional and End-to-End Verifiable (E2E-V) supervised voting system, including a public bulletin board, controller, electronic pollbook, and an optical scan system capable of interpreting hand-marked paper ballots.

    We regularly work with federal and state authorities, jurisdictions across the USA, and other governments to help everyone wisely use technology to make elections more trustworthy. Consequently, you won’t find us developing an Internet or mobile voting system, you won’t find us developing proprietary systems or using closed data formats, and you certainly won’t find us using or promulgating blockchain.

    About Free and Fair

    Free & Fair is a Public Benefit (Class B) corporation whose focus is research and development of technologies that help foster and realize trustworthy elections. We provide elections services and systems meeting the same reliability and security standards as the US federal government demands for national security. Our system designs and architectures are reviewed by the world’s foremost experts in academia and industry. Our products are open source, provably correct, and secure, and we provide independently verifiable evidence of their correctness and security. Our mission is to help election officials and the voting public take back control of their elections technologies, and our goal is to usher in a new era of provably secure elections.

    Our full-time development team is located in downtown Portland, Oregon. We also have a number of remote performers with specialized roles, in the USA and the EU.

    Free & Fair is an equal opportunity employer. We very much welcome all candidates. We have competitive salaries, excellent benefits including radical maternity/paternity leave, and especially welcome working parents who value flexible schedules.

    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.

    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 office.

    – Identifying and defining new process improvement opportunities

    SKILLS

    – 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)
    – Technical expertise regarding data models, database design development, data mining and segmentation techniques
    – Knowledge of statistics and experience using statistical packages for analyzing datasets (Excel, SPSS, SAS, etc.)
    – Strong analytical skills with the ability to collect, organize, analyze, and disseminate significant amounts of information with attention to detail and accuracy
    – Adept at queries, report writing, and presenting findings
    – 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.

    Free and Fair Technology

    The technology that Free & Fair creates, and the research and development that we do, is rigorous, leverages applied formal methods, uses informal and formal system specifications, and realizes a design-by-contract-via-refinement implementation methodology. Our focus in 2019 through 2021 is on a cryptography SDK for Microsoft (ElectionGuard) and a fully-featured open source and open hardware voting system demonstrator for DARPA-funded secure hardware.

    This latter system, called the BESSPIN Voting System, will be debuted at DEF CON 2020. An early version was demonstrated at DEF CON 2019. Releases leading up to DEF CON 2020 will include additional components of a full-blown traditional and End-to-End Verifiable (E2E-V) supervised voting system, including a public bulletin board, controller, electronic pollbook, and an optical scan system capable of interpreting hand-marked paper ballots.

    We regularly work with federal and state authorities, jurisdictions across the USA, and other governments to help everyone wisely use technology to make elections more trustworthy. Consequently, you won’t find us developing an Internet or mobile voting system, you won’t find us developing proprietary systems or using closed data formats, and you certainly won’t find us using or promulgating blockchain.

    About Free and Fair

    Free & Fair is a Public Benefit (Class B) corporation whose focus is research and development of technologies that help foster and realize trustworthy elections. We provide elections services and systems meeting the same reliability and security standards as the US federal government demands for national security. Our system designs and architectures are reviewed by the world’s foremost experts in academia and industry. Our products are open source, provably correct, and secure, and we provide independently verifiable evidence of their correctness and security. Our mission is to help election officials and the voting public take back control of their elections technologies, and our goal is to usher in a new era of provably secure elections.

    Our full-time development team is located in downtown Portland, Oregon. We also have a number of remote performers with specialized roles, in the USA and the EU.

    Free & Fair is an equal opportunity employer. We very much welcome all candidates. We have competitive salaries, excellent benefits including radical maternity/paternity leave, and especially welcome working parents who value flexible schedules.

    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
    Our ideal candidate can’t help but redesign the world around them in their heads. Your brain is always set to design mode, and grid systems are overlaid onto your eyeballs. A commitment to excellence, a love of art, and ambition to see things through are what set you apart. Solving visual riddles, and how to fit too much text onto a page elegantly (with style), are the kinds of problems you get excited about. You know what sets apart good photos from great photos and you are ruthless in your curation. You understand how to deliver what someone needs, not just what they asked for, and are excellent at both taking direction and initiative. You work quickly and independently.

    WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
    The Graphic & Video Designer will be part of the Campaign Accelerator team, on a mission to supercharge the cross-partisan American democracy movement by providing multi-state, multi-issue services to the most promising campaigns across the country.

    Under the direction of the Art Director, the GVD is responsible for providing in-house design support for multiple active campaigns supported by RepresentUs within a multidisciplinary team. This will be a fast-paced position that will require you to stay well organized and keep a lot of plates spinning at once. Each campaign will have its own brand, and you’ll need to slip effortlessly between all the different looks and styles. You may have competing priorities from different managers and need to satisfy them all.

    The GVD will create compelling, accessible, and beautiful design assets to complement and accentuate materials crafted for a variety of audiences. The GVD will:

    – Design graphics, videos, and animation for multiple high-priority campaigns
    – Create engaging, timely, & relevant graphics for social media, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter on a regular basis
    – Edit footage and add subtitles to create videos
    – Organize layout for informational materials
    – Concept and contribute to videos, graphics, and campaigns
    – Provide design and digital support for all teams at RepresentUs as needed

    SKILLS & EXPERIENCE
    – Robust design, typography, and layout skills
    – 3+ years of working design or agency experience (preferred)
    – Proficiency with Illustrator, Photoshop, and Indesign
    – Attention to detail
    – Ability to take a project from concept through completion
    – Familiarity with web and mobile UI/UX best practices
    – Familiarity with social media best practices
    – Ability to make complex ideas simple
    – Basic competency in HTML & CSS, WordPress backend

    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.

    The annual salary range for the Graphic & Video Designer position varies by location. We currently have staff in Massachusetts, North Carolina, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, California, New York, and Alabama. Example ranges: $50-$60K in Northampton, MA, $65-$75K in San Francisco, CA.

  • VP of Engineering
    Employer: Free & Fair
    Location: Portland, OR
    Category: Engineering

    Role Description

    Free & Fair (F&F) seeks an experienced systems engineering development leader—an executive who can step in and build a dynamic, distributed engineering team, deliver solutions to the market, and execute challenging development activities focused on national critical infrastructure.

    The VP of Engineering at F&F will be responsible for executing on the Company’s overall technology vision and driving its development execution. This person will recruit world-class talent, manage and evolve development processes and methodologies, and foster an organizational structure to help our high-performing development team deliver applications to the market. This person will keep abreast of and influence research and technology trends, standards, and stakeholders. This person will have the ability to bridge technology with business acumen, will bring experience in developing state-of-the-art customer-facing applications, and will develop and sustain a culture of passion, hard work, and innovation.

    Free & Fair Technology

    The technology that Free & Fair creates, and the research and development that we do, is rigorous, leverages applied formal methods, uses informal and formal system specifications, and realizes a design-by-contract-via-refinement implementation methodology. Our focus in 2019 through 2021 is on a cryptography SDK for Microsoft (ElectionGuard) and a fully-featured open source and open hardware voting system demonstrator for DARPA-funded secure hardware.

    This latter system, called the BESSPIN Voting System, will be debuted at DEF CON 2020. An early version was demonstrated at DEF CON 2019. Releases leading up to DEF CON 2020 will include additional components of a full-blown traditional and End-to-End Verifiable (E2E-V) supervised voting system, including a public bulletin board, controller, electronic pollbook, and an optical scan system capable of interpreting hand-marked paper ballots.

    We regularly work with federal and state authorities, jurisdictions across the USA, and other governments to help everyone wisely use technology to make elections more trustworthy. Consequently, you won’t find us developing an Internet or mobile voting system, you won’t find us developing proprietary systems or using closed data formats, and you certainly won’t find us using or promulgating blockchain.

    Responsibilities

    This role has a core responsibility for the overall engineering effort within F&F—building an open source high-assurance voting system running on novel hardware. Key responsibilities include:

    Strategic planning for all engineering efforts
    Overseeing all activities of the engineering team
    Supporting the development of the product roadmap
    Leading and defining our engineering methodology for the design, development, validation, verification, and release of our products and features
    Establishing goals, objectives, and operating procedures for the engineering team
    Defining and communicating plans, policies, and standards for the engineering organization
    Recruiting, managing, and continuously developing a world-class team of technology professionals viewed as the global R&D leader in the secure voting system space.
    Participating in the strategic business and product planning process
    Being actively engaged in technology standards boards and organizations that may impact F&F and its offerings
    Being an active spokesperson and evangelist both internally and externally by communicating and promoting F&F’s technology vision and solutions
    Evaluating new technologies and solutions in the market and being responsible for keeping abreast of trends that may impact F&F
    Developing engineering best practices and monitoring technical standards to ensure adherence to them
    Being directly responsible for establishing and managing the operating development budget
    Moderate travel (circa 20 nights per year) is expected for participating in occasional elections conferences, visits to collaborators or clients, and trips to Washington D.C. to interact with federal authorities

    Qualifications

    Previous senior leadership roles in product or application development and rigorous engineering for high-growth companies
    Proven leadership of distributed software teams that have delivered great products on deadline
    Proven ability to recruit the best and brightest developers in the world and provide them with a vision and working environment to develop world-class applications, while instituting compelling performance measurements that continually drive transparency and improved performance
    Excellent communication skills, strong team player, and the ability to work cross-functionally in a fast-paced, high-productivity startup environment
    Experience with globally distributed teams and business partners
    Experience in managing both mainstream development and R&D activities
    Experience in development with open source technologies
    M.S. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related engineering field
    10+ years of product engineering experience

    Preference will be given to candidates with:

    Experience in formal methods and software assurance
    Experience with rigorous engineering methodologies, especially those based upon applied formal methods such as formal specification and verification, design-by-contract, and refinement-based design methods
    Familiarity with cryptographic protocols, especially end-to-end verifiable (E2E-V) protocols
    Deep understanding of voting system requirements and E2E-V architecture
    A love of democracy and a concern with the world’s elections infrastructure
