GoodParty.org is looking for a Data Engineer with JavaScript or Python and experience building ETL pipelines who’s based in the U.S. to join us in our mission of making people matter more than money in our democracy. 

 

About GoodParty.org:

 

GoodParty/org is a tech platform and movement powering the mission to make people matter more than money in our democracy. 

 

GoodParty.org is founded and fully-funded by serial entrepreneur, Farhad Mohit, with over $1B in exits — including Flipagram (now TikTok), Shopzilla, and BizRate.

 

Why?

Americans – especially young people – are losing faith in democracy. The rigged, two party system has turned “Independent” into a dirty word. Voters are trapped between choosing the lesser of two evils or sitting out elections altogether.

A majority of eligible voters (over 130M Americans), including more than half of Millennials and Gen Z, say that neither Republicans, nor Democrats represent them. But they keep getting re-elected! Whether you’re concerned about the environment, healthcare costs, wars, inequality, or our individual freedoms, many great solutions are held back by the dark doom-loop of dysfunctional partisan politics. 

 

While mainstream media and the two major parties focus on federal elections (e.g. Congress and President), GoodParty.org is building from the bottom up.  With over 500,000 elected offices in the United States, 70% of which are uncontested, we are powering a grassroots revolution to take back our communities from career politicians by helping real people run and win local and state level campaigns all across the country.

 

How?

GoodParty.org’s solution is to make it simple to run, win and serve. We offer free AI powered tools to help real people run and win elections, independent of partisan support or big money.  We train people to run for office and support candidates who take our pledge so they don’t have to sell out to the Democrats or Republicans, raise big money, or cow-tow to special interests. Our free AI Campaign Manager and team with 50+ years of campaign experience make running, winning and serving as an independent, people-powered anti-corruption candidate possible.

 

We’re also building a movement of bright, caring Americans who are ready to end this country's two-party political dysfunction. Our community’s collective power is being harnessed to elect the most promising independents around the country. By leveraging social media and creators, we’re making our mission to make people matter more than money mainstream.

 

What you’ll do: 

  • Build systems that collect, manage, and convert raw data into usable information that powers the product our candidates are using to run for office as well as inform GoodParty.org’s team to help candidates win.

  • Implement methods to improve data reliability, security, and quality.

  • Combine raw information from different sources to create consistent and machine-readable formats. 

  • Develop and test architectures that enable data extraction and transformation for predictive or prescriptive modeling.

  • Create unique data infrastructure, run tests, and keep systems updated using big data technologies and databases.

  • Collaborate with our lean, agile team using CI/CD and Kanban methodologies.

  • Work directly with Product, Design, and QA on your projects. Also partner closely with Data Analytics Lead on backend for data projects that power team KPIs and product performance. 

  • Report to the CTO, join a team of senior developers as the first Data Engineer hire.

 

Who we’re looking for:

  • You’re up for the audacious challenge of re-coding our democracy for Good.

  • You’ve got strong scripting skills with JavaScript or Python and you can do data exploration in SQL.

  • You have experience with data modeling, warehousing, and building ETL pipelines that process millions of records.

  • You’re a proven A-player with 8+ years of relevant full-time work experience, ideally within a fast-paced 0-to-1 environment. We care more about talent and trajectory than years of experience. 

  • You’ve got experience with big data technologies such as Hadoop, Hive, Spark, or EMR

  • You’re actively interested in using AI, LLMs, and automation of tasks through AI and have done previous work or personal projects in this area.

  • You have advanced technical and analytical skills to diagnose, isolate, and resolve problems..

  • You’re able to work independently and collaborate with others when needed to iteratively solve problems in real-time. Our solution is desperately needed and the issues of our time are all bottlenecked by our corrupted democracy.

Bonus if:

  • You have experience studying, working, or volunteering in politics, political activism, or democracy reform.

  • You’re sick of sitting on the sidelines watching our democracy fail to meet its potential.

 

Why you should work at GoodParty.org:

  • Join us in solving the biggest problem of our time – fixing our democracy – so all other problems can be solved

  • We’re a Public Benefit Corporation that prioritizes social impact over profit

  • Work where and how you like on a fully remote team spread across the country

  • Work when you work best with flexible work hours. We aim to limit meetings and ensure they’re useful. 

  • Join a passionate team with diverse political views focused on one mission

  • 100% coverage of health, dental, and vision benefits for you and your dependents

  • We encourage you to take time off to recharge and have an unlimited PTO (sick and vacation) policy. This is a marathon, not a sprint. We believe a work-life balance is needed to get there. 

  • We’ll make sure you’ve got what you need to work remotely through our workspace setup stipend

  • If you work from home, we give $50/month to help with your internet and other expenses. If you prefer co-working, that’s an option we can discuss too. 

  • Fully funded for our mission. No stressing over whether the next round of funding will come through. Focus on making an impact. That’s what matters here.

The salary range is $150,000 to $200,000 for this remote, full-time position with excellent benefits. Title will also be commensurate with experience. This range reflects the range of possible compensation for this role at the time of this posting. We may ultimately pay more or less than the posted range. An employee’s position within the salary range will be based on several factors including, but not limited to, relevant experience, skills, seniority, education, qualifications, certifications, and organizational needs. We reserve the right to modify this pay range at any time. 

Ready to learn more or apply?

This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing organization dedicated to making people matter more than money in our democracy. If you are excited about GoodParty.org, we hope you'll apply!

Stay connected with our mission by signing up atGoodParty.org. If you know anyone else who may be interested, please share this job posting – thanks!
