The Democratic National Committee · Jun 8th 2019
The Democratic National Committee’s Tech team is hiring a UX product designer to help us build world class tools to help candidates win elections and to empower progressives across the country by providing them with access to high quality data and tools they need to win.
We need an experienced UX product designer to help us define and implement UX research and design for a suite of self service analytics tools we are building to support our growing community of data analysts and data scientists in state parties, campaigns, sister committees (like the DCCC), and vendors.
Who we are
The Tech team is a small, diverse team that provides the technology used by candidates and organizers in all 50 states and all 3,413 counties across the United States to analyze data, organize campaigns, raise money, and get out the vote on election day. But there’s more to do. So we’re hiring product managers, engineers, researchers, designers, security experts, IT professionals, and data scientists who can use user-centered design and rapid iteration to develop a rich technology ecosystem for progressives—building tools ourselves as well as partnering with other companies and organizations.
Our data warehouse and analytics platform is our product. We are deeply committed to equipping candidates and campaigns around the country with the resources they need to win, and we are seeking a UX product designer to collaborate with our product team to identify the highest value opportunities to improve users’ end to end experience with democratic data.
Our users range in technical skill and it’s our mission to build tools that help analysts and data scientists uplevel their analytics game by providing features and functions that seamlessly integrate with our data warehouse.

Nice to have..
Do you want to..
This is a freelance contract position (6 months) with potential for transition into a full-time role. We are a remote team with a concentration of folks in Washington, D.C., San Francisco Bay Area, Boston and Chicago. If you are coming from industry, however, be aware that some things are different in the world of politics: while we’ve done some budget hacking so we can be competitive when it comes to salaries we know we can’t beat Google or Facebook. On the other hand, you might legit help save the world.
