About Us

We Vote is a nonpartisan get-out-the-vote nonprofit startup, and a celebrated Fast Forward nonprofit technology grantee. We Vote is a movement of 14 passionate volunteers (starting with the founders) who build open source 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 complete voting experience in 8 minutes, including the download of our app ("We Vote 2018 Ballot"). More information is at https://WeVote.US. See Twitter @WeVote. We Vote has built a deep API server that has full control of national ballot data (in it's third year of development).


What You’ll Do.


Who you are: Must haves.

  • You want to work with an established and successful team. You have a passion for the latest technology, and are committed to strengthening American Democracy.
  • You are striving for personal excellence.
  • At least 20 hours per week during our core team hours M-F 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
  • A willingness to work with and support other volunteers.


Not required, but nice to have.

  • We hold our face-to-face meetings in Oakland and San Francisco CA, and would love to be able to have meetings in person.
  • An academic degree or work experience in engineering.


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. You’ll also gain valuable technical skills, have opportunities for leadership development, and expand your personal and professional network.
