We’re looking for a senior full-stack engineer who is looking to have an effect on hundreds of Democratic campaigns.

Tech for Campaigns is scaling up to deliver more than 500 projects in 2020 and help flip as many seats as possible. We’ve already built a number of in-house systems to help us do this, but we need your help. This technology will not only have a major impact on the 2020 elections, but also on thousands of campaigns for many cycles to come.

- Develop internal tooling to power TFC's 11,000+ strong volunteer operation and scale for 2020
- Build campaign-facing software tools to help Democrats win
- Architect and administer our internal infrastructure
- Propose and implement improvements to existing technologies
- Advise our (awesome) volunteer engineering teams

WHO YOU ARE
- BS or higher in Computer Science (or related)
* Considerable professional experience working with large scale backend systems and AWS
- Expertise in systems design to build TFC core processes
- Strong communication skills, both verbal and written
- Passionate about technology and building things the right way

- Highly experienced in various web backend and database technologies (Python + Flask/Tornado, MySQL, Redis, etc.)
- Excellent project management ability (costing, task tracking, workflow, etc.)
