The Democratic Data Exchange (DDx) is looking for engineers at all levels to support the development of a new data exchange platform that expands the Democratic and progressive data ecosystem. The DDx is a remote-first organization of about a dozen individuals spread across the country. Many of us work out of our DC office but we provide both equipment and coworking space reimbursement. Our benefits also include company-provided medical, dental and vision plans and unlimited PTO.

As part of the engineering team you’ll have the opportunity to work on a modern codebase and directly contribute to the culture and success of the DDx! The Exchange, our software platform, will require engineers to build out significant portions of our data pipeline using industry standard tools and languages as well as handle deployment and operation of the Exchange in the cloud.

At DDx we believe…

  • Empathy is the most important part of being a good engineer
  • Inclusivity builds stronger, more supportive teams
  • Thoughtfulness is good for engineering and good for teamwork
  • Mentorship is something everyone should be involved in
  • A bias towards action is better than delaying for a perfect solution
  • Making mistakes is inevitable on the path to becoming a great engineer

We don’t expect every applicant to know or have worked with every technology we’ve listed, or have worked with everything we’ll be working on at the DDx so we urge you to apply if you’re interested and some of the above applies to you! We’re looking for engineers of all levels and hiring for the people over the position above all else.
