Special Projects Engineer

Data for Progress | Remote | Short-term

Position Summary

Data for Progress is bringing on a contractor for special full-stack software engineering projects to help expand our mission to empower movements using data. This role will be responsible for working with our engineering, operations, and polling teams in areas related to survey operations and polling visualization. Even if you have no strong political background, this is a great way to get exposure to political data and communications. You’ll be building on a product that is already hugely impactful, with a world-class engineering team including early employees of Airbnb and Biden for President.

This is an opportunity to work as a software engineer and influence the country’s major policy decision-making. For example, DFP polls have been cited by Press Secretary Psaki, White House press releases, and lawmakers like Sens. Gillibrand, Warren, and Schumer and Reps. Bush and Jayapal. Our engineering team and our technical infrastructure is what makes this possible and engineers are included from beginning to end of projects.

AS A SPECIAL PROJECTS ENGINEER CONTRACTOR, YOU WILL…

  • Collaborate closely with teammates in the DFP Tech Team and across DFP to build on our technical foundation for polling and operations.

    Design, execute, and take ownership of analysis of polling operations and parts of our polling methodology and visualization workflows.

    Write clean and testable Python, SQL, HTML, Javascript.

    Create visualizations of data for non-technical audiences.

    Publish and share deliverables for internal and external stakeholders on your work.

FOR EXAMPLE, YOU MIGHT

  • We have a cool internal survey analysis webapp, Webapp for Progress, that already makes sharp charts automatically from our polling results; build on top of this novel visualizations, like of “highlighter” questions where respondents are asked to highlight the parts of a message that resonate with them.

  • Webapp for Progress also already automatically handles importing our surveys when they finish fielding; our polling and operations teams would absolutely love you if you made it so Webapp for Progress automatically updated our contracts platform when new surveys are imported, so we don’t have to manually update that information in multiple places.

  • We encourage all staff and contractors to write questions about personal curiosities or favorite policy areas on our national omnibus surveys and to write up and present their findings in internal meetings or on the DFP blog.

If you are unsure if you meet the qualifications for this role but are still interested, applying is highly encouraged.

The Special Projects Engineer position is a contract, remote position and reports to the CTO.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY
