Headquarters: Washington, DC URL:
We are GovPredict, a Y Combinator-backed startup that has a singular goal: help our clients win their public affairs campaigns.
We've taken all the tech that's used in public affairs campaigns (legislative monitoring, tech for launching grassroots campaigns, fly-in software, issue management, fundraising), built some unique tools (biggest database of campaign contributions in the world, monitoring municipal ordinances across thousands of cities), and put it all under one roof. We work with Fortune 100 companies, political action committees (PACs), Congressional offices, political campaigns, and more. Our clients include AIPAC, American Gaming Association, 21st Century Fox, and 2 of the biggest SuperPACs.
Our team of top-tier software developers is distributed around the world and our sales + business development is in Washington, DC, USA.
Our Tech Stack
Ruby on Rails, ReactJS, Python scrapers, Postgres, Mongo, Redis, Elastic Search, AWS, RabbitMQ, Terraform, and Ansible.
About the Job
As a Rails engineer, you will primarily write code on our core Rails application that power many of our products. You'll build new products we're launching as well as upgrades and maintenance on our current suite of products. You'll work in a small team of Rails and ReactJS engineers who will work together with you to build what's needed. You'll also work across teams with our data team when you are integrating a new data source into the platform. Even though we're a fast-moving startup, we still have the resources like a dedicated dev-ops team, designers, and product managers to help you focus purely on coding. That said, our engineers still have a strong influence on product direction.
More generally, as a developer at GovPredict, you will participate in many parts of the engineering organization as it grows and as you grow as a member of our team. We ask our engineers to not only write code but to help us improve the organization. You will provide feedback on engineering operations, weigh in on architecture decisions, interview new candidates, and help make GP a place you love to work at.
We are hiring all levels of developers -- from junior to manager -- so don't be shy if you think you're under or over qualified for the role. We'll tailor the interview difficulty and evaluation process to the level you self-report.
