Full-Stack Software Developer
We were founded in 2014 as a technology startup creating solutions for mid-to-large size political organizations seeking to engage their supporters and activists via mobile channels (smartphone apps and messaging tools). We are now expanding the types of clients we work with outside the political realm while continuing to focus on personal, scaleable engagement in an increasingly fragmented and distracted world. We operate on lean startup principles with a focus on strong internal communication, rapid and iterative development cycles, excellence in customer service, and a flexible, may-the-best-ideas-win approach to product design. This has helped propel rapid growth in a stimulating environment where every team member is challenged to contribute ideas and creatively solve problems to ensure our clients have the absolute best chance of success.
Our Core Values
1. Move fast and make things
2. Our goal is to be doing the best work of lives right here, every day
3. Never be afraid to share a new idea or constructive criticism, and listen back
4. Respect the processes we’ve established until we create a better way to do something
5. We prove our mettle when facing daunting tasks or trying to achieve a difficult goal
6. The company’s success is our personal success -- everyone contributes, no one is left out
7. If you need help, ask for it. If you don’t understand something, start asking questions.
8. Personal accountability: own your mistakes, and be recognized for your achievements.
