You’ve been seething since Nov. 8, 2016. You’ve been calling your member of Congress and pleaded with your friends to do the same, even though deep down you’re not sure it makes that much of a difference. You’ll vote for the forward-thinking candidate this year, but you just wish there was something else you could do. There is.

In early 2017, we were in your shoes. But then we figured out how we could quickly, affordably, and accurately measure public opinion online — and we knew we could bring it to forward-thinking candidates and causes and help them win.

We’re working on some really interesting problems with data, social science, and politics. And by solving them, we hope to make our democracy better.

We are currently accepting applications for a full-time software engineer in our Palo Alto office (or remote).

About the role:  

As a software engineer, you will build the infrastructure to allow us to help hundreds of great candidates and organizations.

In this role, you will help Change Research: 

  • Build out a robust data pipeline that runs from raw survey data to insightful reports
  • Design and build elegant, scalable data pipelines that make it easy to turn raw survey response data into insightful reports
  • Grow as a technology company. We’re currently working in Python, but are flexible and happy to work with the best technology for the problem we are trying to solve.
  • Do a little bit of everything, from administering AWS to weighing in on non-technical decisions. This is an early stage startup so we all do many different things!

Compensation and work environment:  

We offer a workplace that is both casual and professional, and a culture that is committed to learning, fun, and excellence. We offer paid PTO and health insurance plus dental and vision coverage. 

How to apply:  

Please send your resume or LinkedIn profile and a note about why you’re interested in this role to jobs@changeresearch.com with the subject line “[Your Name] / Software Engineer”. No phone calls, please.

All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply, including women, people of color, gays and lesbians, transgender people, veterans and people with disabilities.
