Data Engineer

Job description

The Democratic Data Exchange (DDx) is looking for experienced data engineers to support the development of our data exchange platform that expands the Democratic and progressive data ecosystem by facilitating the real time, blind exchange of proprietary data with organizations, parties, committees, and campaigns.

As part of the engineering team, you’ll have the opportunity to work on a fresh and wide-ranging codebase, and directly contribute to the culture and success of DDx! The Exchange, our suite of software platforms and tools, requires engineers to build out significant portions of our data integrations for partners using industry standard tools and languages as well as handle deployment and operation of the Exchange in the cloud.

At DDx, we believe:

  • Empathy is the most important part of being a good engineer

  • Inclusivity builds stronger, more supportive teams

  • Thoughtfulness is good for engineering and good for teamwork

  • Mentorship is something everyone should be involved in

  • A bias towards action is better than delaying for a perfect solution

  • Making mistakes is inevitable on the path to becoming a great engineer

About Us

Founded in 2019, the Democratic Data Exchange (DDx) is a for-profit company that facilitates a real-time, blind exchange of proprietary voter data between progressively aligned organizations, parties, committees, and campaigns.

DDx's goal is to create a long-term, sustainable infrastructure that helps campaigns and organizations gain access to the breadth and depth of voter contact program data that is being generated and collected every cycle -- empowering members to make more informed decisions.

DDx is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace -- we’re proud to be an equal opportunity and inclusive employer.

Job requirements

As a Data Engineer: 

  • Have experience building data pipelines and ETL workflows using cloud platforms like Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services
  • Have experience working day-to-day using a popular data warehouse, like Redshift, Vertica, BigQuery, or Snowflake using SQL
  • Have strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Be comfortable with a popular scripting language, such as Python or JavaScript
  • Act autonomously, thrive in a strong team environment, be excited to work in a fully remote role
  • Be able to work with, clarify, and find creative solutions for ambiguous and sometimes challenging requests

At DDx, we use things like:

  • Python and SQL

  • Snowflake Data Cloud, Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery

  • Apache Airflow, DBT, and other open-source data tooling

  • Terraform, Jenkins

  • AWS - Lambda, IAM, KMS, SQS, SNS and more

We don’t expect every applicant to know or have worked with every technology we’ve listed, or have worked with everything we’ll be working on at DDx, so we urge you to apply if you’re interested and some of the above applies to you! We’re looking for engineers with at least some professional experience, and are hiring for the people over the position above all else.
