Description

In preparing for the opportunities and challenges ahead of us — through the 2016 election and beyond — MoveOn is investing even more deeply in technology that can help amplify ordinary people’s voices in our democracy, and we are hiring passionate problem solvers who will take our technology platform to the next level. Do you have great ideas and the enthusiasm to build them? Join our team! Together we will brainstorm, collaborate, design, build, and ship code that handles massive scale. Work alongside MoveOn’s core team of organizers, campaigners, data scientists, and operations and media professionals, on projects that make the world a more progressive place!

MoveOn is a community of millions of Americans from all walks of life who use innovative technology to lead, participate in, and win campaigns for progressive change. For more than 17 years, the MoveOn family of organizations have used online tools to lower the barriers to participation in our democracy, so American citizens have a voice in a political process where big money and corporate lobbyists wield too much influence.

The MoveOn team considers technology to be a core part of our DNA. MoveOn pioneered mass online petitions, some of the first mass distributed online-enabled house parties and remote phone banks, and user-generated online campaigning. MoveOn’s millions of members generate site traffic that would make most startups jealous. And MoveOn has terabytes of data that all staff have been trained to query with SQL. At MoveOn, making decisions with data is a core part of how all work gets done.

The MoveOn team also considers our distributed staffing model to be a core part of our DNA. MoveOn staff can live wherever they want in the country, giving families tremendous flexibility in where they live. MoveOn staff are embedded in the communities that make up America, and we pursue the healthy development of community and social connections outside our work lives.
