Software Engineer



Our client is an events management and volunteer recruitment platform that connects mission-driven organizations and their supporters. 

In just 2 years, their platform has helped nearly 2,000 advocacy organizations and political campaigns (including Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the Human Rights Campaign, and 20 Presidential campaigns) sign up one million supporters for volunteer action and events.


Their team comes from Airbnb, Bain & Company, Condé Nast, Facebook, Hustle, McKinsey, Medium, Mixpanel, The New York Times, Quora, and various political campaigns and governmental organizations.


We are committed to building a workplace that reflects the diversity of volunteers and organizations that we exist to serve.


About the role

As a Software Engineer on a small team, you’ll immediately have significant ownership over product direction and engineering architecture, working closely with design and product on both ideas and execution.


You will

  • Lead the design and development of multiple new product areas that help campaigns and advocacy groups recruit and activate more volunteers 
  • 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 campaigns and organizations to control their data
  • Write high-quality, sustainable code that maintains engineering standards and architecture across the organization
  • Think up a growth experiment or five, and plan prototypes to test them in the lightest way possible

Who you are

  • You’re an eager and fast learner, undaunted by tackling a project in a totally new technology or part of the stack
  • You’ve shipped quality products end-to-end, and aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty with whatever a product needs to roll out
  • You care deeply about empowering ordinary people for progressive causes. We’re a mission-driven company, and everything we do is guided by political impact. At the end of the day, we’re here to help progressive candidates and causes win elections.
  • You have some professional work experience, ideally in startups where you’ve seen things scale (and break)
  • You’re not afraid of uncertainty and aim to fail fast. We bring an ethos of experimentation to everything we build—you know it’s better to ship something early and learn than architect the perfect solution.



  • Competitive compensation and equity package
  • Full medical coverage including dental benefits
  • Unlimited vacation policy
  • 401K benefits


This position is based in New York City, so candidates should be here or willing to relocate.
