What is a “progressive data” job?

Loosely defined as a job where the majority of the role, department, or organization is focused on data or analytics work in the progressive space. This work may include anything from data science and software engineering to sales and staff management.

The label “progressive” encompasses a wide variety of groups and individuals that are trying to promote progressive ideas, values, laws, or candidates. Such groups are sometimes, but not always, aligned with the Democratic Party. Examples of progressive organizations include issue advocacy and civic engagement organizations, candidate campaigns, party committees, labor unions, and consulting firms.

While we do vet all postings, a posting on PDJ should not be considered an endorsement of the organization, its values or work environment. Ultimately, we choose to give job applicants the autonomy to decide what is best for them and encourage individuals to do their own vetting.

We manually approve each job before we post it. We run on volunteer capacity, so sometimes it can take us a few days to review and post job openings.

PDJ was co-founded by Lena T. & Annie W. and is an LLC. We also have support from Lara H., Temi A., Diamond A., Gretchen W., and others to maintain the site. PDJ is not associated with any other organization or company. We run this as a labor of love on our own time & dime.

We want to make it easy for people interested in particular types of work to find a job. There are many other job boards that post a host of other job types in the progressive space. Please see the resources page.

We believe strongly in salary transparency and while we urge all progressive organizations to post positions with the salary, we do not want to limit opportunities for prospective employees. 

Unfortunately, no. We do not have the capacity to respond to these requests, although we encourage you to use other resources and connections that may be available to you.

We post positions as we become aware of them; however, we do not remove closed positions unless we are notified. The position may no longer be accepting applications, but if you think the link may simply be in error, please contact us.

Yes, but we will only post them if they are paid opportunities. If we errantly post an unpaid position, please let us know.

Generally, no. While these organizations may contribute to social good, we are focused on jobs working broadly in progressive politics. We look at jobs on a case-by-case basis and evaluate organizations based on whether a majority of their work is oriented towards progressive causes. If you think we’ve misunderstood your organization’s work, please get in touch!
