\nLong Distance Voter (longdistancevoter.org) is one of the most frequently visited sites on the internet for all things voting related. We’ve had over 4 million visitors to our site since launch, and reached another 30+ million via a 2014 partnership with Google. Two weeks ago we bought Vote.org and are getting ready to launch our most ambitious project to date. Our user-facing site will be the defacto online hub of all things voting. Our partner portal will provide critical infrastructure to every other group in civic engagement. Our R&D efforts will rapidly prototype and test ways to apply established technologies in innovative civic applications with proven potential for impact.  \n\nWe’re on a mission to use technology to drastically increase voter turnout and we’re building the  team to get us there.  We’re looking for a talented engineer with a heart of gold and rock solid judgement to come on as full-time engineer #1.  Think this might be you? Keep reading.\n\nYour coworkers would describe you as:\n\n\n* Ships working software as quickly as possible without sacrificing stability, privacy, or security.\n\n* Can translate a long term product vision into discrete shippable features.\n\n* Knows how important it is to build software that is usable and accessible by anyone, regardless of browser or device\n\n* Communicates pragmatic solutions clearly and can understand where engineering tasks fit within the big picture.\n\n* Is comfortable communicating with non-engineers, including county election officials, politicians, and field, and other staff – in a way that is respectful and supportive.\n\n* Knows how to pick the right tools for the job.\n\n* Prefers to do load testing and capacity planning over firefighting.\n\n\n\n\nYou’d describe yourself as someone who:\n\n\n* Loves the idea of working at a small, flexible, mission-driven nonprofit organization.\n\n* Finds the idea of a non-negotiable, hard deadlines exciting\n\n* Enjoys using your skills to help solve very large problems (like low voter turnout).\n\n* Is more motivated by impact than money at this point in your career. If you want an intro to an exec at Uber, we’re happy to make one (we know them), but we can’t pay you as much as Uber can.\n\n* Genuinely enjoys being part of a small yet mighty team\n\n\n\n\nYour day-to-day job responsibilities will involve:\n\n\n* Building web applications help millions of people vote in the 2016 election and beyond.  \n\n* Keeping everything running smoothly. You own everything from DNS to bare metal (metaphorically speaking, we currently run on Heroku and AWS).\n\n* Leading technical design of our products, with an eye toward rapid scale, stability, and managing bursty traffic.\n\n* Seeing and articulating the big picture for the CEO, volunteers, and other stakeholders.\n\n* Growing and leading a team of in-house or contract software engineers and designers.\n\n* Important to note: You’re inheriting a vote-by-mail application, a registration verification app, a partner portal. Your first brand new product will be a simple voter registration tool that will be used 500,000 times in 2016 alone. The wireframes are ready for you.\n\n\n\n\nYou possess the following technical skills: \n\n\n* 5+ years of professional experience shipping user-facing software while meeting hard deadlines\n\n* Expert knowledge of SQL (PostgreSQL), and scripting languages like Ruby (or Python, PHP, etc)\n\n* Experience with Rails, Node.js, or other frameworks\n\n* Fluent in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (Angular is a bonus)\n\n* Experience deploying (Heroku), managing, and debugging servers\n\n* Experience using git\n\n* A working knowledge of web security best practices\n\n\n\n\nHuge bonus points for:\n\n\n* Experience working on a political campaign, or for a civic engagement org.\n\n* An abiding love for the emerging US Web Design Standards (https://playbook.cio.gov/designstandards/)\n\n* Interest for public speaking. You’ll be building Vote.org! Conferences will want to hear from you!\n\n\n\n\nApplication Deadline: January 30, 2016.  If you’re even *thinking* about applying, go ahead and apply. There’s no such thing as imposter syndrome around here.\n\n\n* Apply via our RecruiterBox posting. We’re really excited to hear from you. https://longdistancevoter.recruiterbox.com/jobs/fk0h5t9\n\n\n\n\nAlso, if you are physically based in SF, you will work from the office. If you are based somewhere else, you can work from home (or we'll get you an office)
