    Employer: Democracy Works
    Location: Brooklyn, NY
    Category: Fellowship

    Location: Brooklyn, NY or remote within the US
    Target Start/End Dates: August 11th, 2020 to November 10th, 2020 (this is a 13-week temporary position)
    Schedule: Full time; 10:00 am to 6:00 pm EST, Monday through Friday
    Salary Range: $13,000 for 13 week fellowship (paid in semi-monthly installments)
    Level: Entry

    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 voting process and ensures that no voter ever has 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 TurboVote 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, and companies like Starbucks, Univision, Facebook, Google, Snap, and dozens more. We also help (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).
    The Research team collects and standardizes information on how voting works—how to register, how to vote, and when and where elections are happening. Streamlining democracy in this way requires quite a bit of knowledge: what form you use to register to vote in Wyoming, to whom you mail your absentee ballot application in Maine, and whether there’s an election taking place in Oklahoma RIGHT NOW (there probably is!). This information is used by various consumers, both internal and external. The Voting Information Project (VIP) coordinates with state election offices to publish nationally standardized information about where and how to vote—data that powers everything from Google’s polling place search to our text and email reminders to TurboVote users.
    As a part of the team, you will work with the Data Project Manager and Director of Election Research to conduct research outreach for the Voting Information Project, contacting thousands of state and local election officials.

    Specifically:

    You will:
    Conduct phone and email outreach to local election administrators to get accurate, up-to-date information on elections
    Compile the election information into a detailed spreadsheet
    Perform quality assurance checks on the information to assure accuracy and completeness of the data
    Research user-reported errors
    Assist the election research team with other tasks, as they arise

    You are:
    Extremely attentive to details
    Excellent at communicating, particularly by telephone
    Able to organize non-centralized, non-standard information into a coherent format
    Skilled at managing multiple priorities
    Knowledgeable on a basic level of American politics, elections, and/or election administration, or interested in learning

    You have experience:
    Conducting concise, clear phone and email outreach with a specific ask
    Communicating across different areas of expertise and working in teams
    Working on tight deadlines and quickly turning around deliverables
    Working with spreadsheets (such as Google Sheets or Excel)

    Physical demands:
    This position requires regular, daily use of a computer to conduct work and communicate with colleagues. For those working out of our Brooklyn office (upon its reopening, TBD), the F train stops closest to our office, but exiting the station requires the use of four flights of stairs. Our office has an elevator available at street level. Streets and buildings nearby are currently under construction, which can disrupt sidewalks and results in varying levels of construction noise audible from the office. Our offices share a set of gendered bathrooms with other offices on our floor, and there are no gender neutral bathrooms in the building at this time.

    Social expectations:
    In this role, you will be required to have significant daily interaction via Slack, email, phone, and video call with colleagues and with many external stakeholders.

    Time and travel expectations:
    Democracy Works’s regular operating hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Eastern Time. There are no travel expectations for this position.

    Application Instructions:
    To apply, please send a resume and respond to the following questions (instead of a cover letter) using the form below.
    In your responses, please include only the following information:
    How did you find this job listing?
    In one sentence, what makes you interested in Democracy Works?
    In one sentence, what makes you interested in this role?
    Would you be available to start by August 11, 2020?
    Are you willing to work at a non-partisan organization?

    As part of our application, you’ll see an optional form used to collect EEOC demographic information. The data collected in this form is useful in our EEOC reporting and in our assessment of our recruitment practices. However, please keep in mind that the standardized EEOC language used in this form does not reflect the values of Democracy Works–for example, we don’t view gender as binary. We also encourage all applicants to state their pronouns when applying for any job opening at Democracy Works.
    Democracy Works is committed to diversity and inclusion in everything we do and aspires to have a team that’s representative of the voters we serve. When hiring, we practice proactive outreach to top talent that’s underrepresented in our sector. We conduct an anonymized skills evaluation, to reduce implicit bias and resume-dependency in our process. We’re a woman- and gay-founded nonprofit, and promote an inclusive culture that stands against racism, sexism, homophobia, and ableism (to name a few). To be explicit, we strongly encourage applicants of all races, ethnicities, political party associations, religions (or lack thereof), national origins, sexual orientations, genders, sexes, ages, abilities, and branches of military service.

  • Voting Information Project Senior Data Fellow
    Employer: Democracy Works
    Location: Brooklyn, NY
    Category: Fellowship

    Location: Brooklyn, NY (upon office reopening) or remote within the US
    Fellowship dates: July 21, 2020 – November 6, 2020
    Stipend: $22,400 for 16 week fellowship (paid in semi-monthly installments)
    Level: Junior

    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 TurboVote 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).
    The Voting Information Project (VIP) coordinates with state election offices to publish nationally standardized information about where and how to vote—data that powers everything from Google’s polling place search, to our text and email reminders to TurboVote users. VIP’s dataset has served millions (and hundreds of millions) of voters since 2008.

    You will:
    Work with Democracy Works technical staff to write, run, and debug Python scripts to parse data
    Assist with standardizing & sanitizing datasets
    Perform quality assurance checks on the information to ensure accuracy and completeness of the data
    Research and respond to user-reported errors
    Write and update technical documentation so that other members of the team can recreate processes

    You are:
    Extremely attentive to details
    Comfortable writing scripts and wrangling data
    Able to organize non-centralized, non-standard information into a coherent format
    Skilled at managing competing priorities
    Happy to pitch in wherever help is needed

    You have experience:
    Creating, modifying, and running scripts in Python, R, SQL, SAS, or a similar language
    Communicating across different areas of expertise and working in teams
    Working on tight deadlines and quickly turning around deliverables

    Physical demands:
    This position requires regular, daily use of a computer to conduct work and communicate with colleagues. Our Brooklyn office is currently closed, and all staff members are working remotely from their homes. For those working out of our Brooklyn office upon its reopening, the F train stops closest to our office, but exiting the station requires the use of four flights of stairs. Our office has an elevator available at street level. Streets and buildings nearby are currently under construction, which can disrupt sidewalks and results in varying levels of construction noise audible from the office. Our offices share a set of gendered bathrooms with other offices on our floor, and there are no gender neutral bathrooms in the building at this time.

    Social expectations:
    This position requires regular check-ins with colleagues and occasional external-facing meetings.
    Time and travel expectations
    Democracy Works’s regular operating hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Eastern Time. No travel is expected for this role.

    Application Instructions:
    To apply, please send a resume and respond to the following questions (instead of a cover letter) using the form below.
    In your responses, please include only the following information:
