Company description Vote.org is a Y-Combinator backed nonprofit startup that uses technology to simplify political engagement, increase voter turnout, and strengthen American democracy. We believe that Americans want to vote, and will vote in higher numbers -- and more consistently -- as voting becomes more convenient. We launched in April of 2016, and have since helped 13 million Americans register to vote and cast ballots via a combination of best-in-class technology and innovative proactive outreach. Most recently, we ran the single largest nonpartisan GOTV (get out the vote) drive in Alabama history. Our work has the potential to change the outcome of elections by bringing millions more voters into the voting booth.
Vote.org is deeply committed to diversity. We strongly encourage women, people of color, first-generation Americans, new parents, single parents, people with disabilities, and members of the queer community to apply.
Some of the benefits of working for Vote.org:
Diverse and Inclusive Team. The Vote.org team is 70% women, and the engineering team is 75% women. Our CEO is a loud, proud, queer woman. Our board of directors is intentionally all female -- and they're also 40% women of color. Almost half of our team members have kids, and all of the kids are under 5 years old. We love both dogs and cats, although we have slightly more cats on the team.
Short commute. We all work from home and it is just the best.
Parent friendly policies. If you need to take 3-5pm off every day to get your kids from school and make after school snacks, we're totally cool with that.
Excellent medical coverage. Full health, dental and vision for employees and generous coverage for your children.
Generous time off. 3 weeks of mandatory vacation and 12 paid holidays
Retirement accounts. We offer both a 401(k) and a Roth 401(k) because we want you to retire one day.
Awesome slack channels. Including #music, #pets, #politics, and #OMG-WTF-LOL.
Fame and fortune. Obama tweeted about us once, without any warning, the site didn't melt. We're besties now.
