We can't stay on the sidelines.
This is an extraordinary time in our history. We believe it's a moment where we need to use our professional abilities to change things—we can't wait for others to do it for us. We are urgently compelled to make a difference, and we're looking for colleagues that want to have immediate impact to help change America's direction.
The New Data Project (NDP) is a new, non-profit organization that is building software to increase civic engagement while serving as an advanced technology research lab for progressives. One of our first products is VoteWithMe, a new mobile app that uses a person’s personal network to help them get out the vote.
We’re building a team of world-class engineers, data scientists, organizers, and user researchers to ensure that the issues that matter have the talent and tools to succeed now and in the future.
Do you feel compelled to act? Do you thrive in a dynamic team that innovates quickly based on real-world data? Do you want to move our country in a positive direction? If so, we would love to talk to you about joining The New Data Project and making it easy for people to participate in civic engagement.
