Civitech works to create a more reflective democracy by developing technology and data products that help Democratic candidates run for office and win, empower progressive causes, and increase civic participation. We aim to make data and technology radically more available in service of strengthening our democracy. Since our founding in 2019 our technology has empowered voter registration efforts led by political campaigns and advocacy organizations to register over 1M voters, and we’ve supported organizations across the progressive political ecosystem.

The QA Manager will guide application testing to ensure that Civitech applications perform according to design, ultimately empowering our clients to win their campaigns and meet their outreach objectives. 

It is important that our team reflects the diversity of the organizations we seek to serve. We strongly encourage women, people of color, people who identify as LGBTQ, and others otherwise underrepresented in the technology sector to apply.

  • Monitor all stages of software development to ensure quality standards
  • Stay up-to-date with new testing tools and test strategies
  • Participate in all the Agile ceremonies

About You:
