Head of Engineering
Who we are:
Empower donors to maximize their impact with us. We're disrupting the political fundraising ecosystem by building a donor-first platform that surfaces under-the-radar, under-funded, winnable races up and down the ballot. We provide users with a set of data-driven recommendations based on the issues and states they care most about, all while protecting their personal information (say goodbye to spam emails & text!) and prioritizing transparency. Join us to invest in yourself, your career, and the new way of political giving.
