Staff Engineer

We’re looking for a senior full-stack engineer who is looking to have an effect on hundreds of Democratic campaigns.

Tech for Campaigns is scaling up to deliver more than 500 projects in 2020 and help flip as many seats as possible. We’ve already built a number of in-house systems to help us do this, but we need your help. This technology will not only have a major impact on the 2020 elections, but also on thousands of campaigns for many cycles to come.
