Junior Survey Data Analyst

When the story of the 2020 election is told, there will be a section explaining how we won back our democracy with insight and data: that polling innovation helped thousands of candidates--from the Democratic nominee for President, to municipal candidates and everyone in between--use modern data science techniques to win.


You want to be at the center of that. You are building a career that bridges technology and politics, combining the best of both worlds to strengthen Democratic political infrastructure.  You are always working on doing things better, and you thrive in an environment that prizes a commitment to impact and accuracy in a fast-paced campaign environment.

About Us:


In 2017, we figured out a new way to quickly, affordably, and accurately measure public opinion online. We use this technology to guide forward-thinking candidates and causes and create winning strategies with them. 


We poll for Democratic candidates and progressive causes across the country and up and down the ballot. We bring together seasoned pollsters and the best data scientists and engineers in Silicon Valley to conduct fast, accurate, and affordable public opinion research online. We are expanding our Washington D.C. operations for the 2020 cycle and we want you to be a part of our team. 


Ensuring a diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other is core to our values. We invite folks with different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer. Join us.
