We Vote currently has an open volunteer position for a Political Data Manager. You will work remotely with our active team to help us get ready for multiple elections this year.

About We Vote.

We Vote is a nonpartisan get-out-the-vote nonprofit startup, and a celebrated Fast Forward nonprofit technology grantee. We Vote is building a movement of excellent, passionate, part-time volunteers (starting with the founders) who build mobile technologies that touch and mobilize millions of voters on Election Day. We believe that many voters are busy, distracted, and impatient. We have a goal of providing a positive voting experience that helps people decide how to vote. More information at http://www.wevote.us or on Twitter @WeVote.


What You’ll Do.

  • Conduct internet research to find voter guides and endorsements from nonprofit groups.
  • Capture candidate and ballot measure endorsements into our social networking application, using our cutting edge tools.
  • Spot-check our data in all 50 states, and research data problems reported by voters.
  • Debug software; use the site and report data or software problems as they are found to help us improve.
  • Support our volunteer marketing team with the latest news from the political data world.


Who you are: Must haves.

  • An attention to detail and passion for clean data.
  • A passion for helping voters find the information they need to make informed voting decisions.
  • We can work with as little as 6 hours per week of your time, and can accommodate someone who can volunteer up to 30-40 hours per week. We ask for a minimum 3 month commitment.
  • A willingness to work with and support other volunteers.
  • Must be in agreement with We Vote’s Core Values.


What You'll Gain.

You will have the opportunity to touch the lives of millions of Americans, and be part of a movement and product that will receive national attention. You’ll gain an opportunity to grow within the We Vote movement and meet other volunteers who are like minded and interested in building a valuable application to empower voters across the United States.
