Our philosophy is people-first, whether we're supporting team members in their careers or prioritizing our clients with a best-in-class customer success program. 

As a Fullstack Software Engineer, you will join the Legislative Product Development team, a product-oriented squad led by an Engineering Manager. You'll be responsible for owning, maintaining and developing new and existing features and innovating across US Federal, State and Local product suites of Quorum. You'll work across the stack using React/Redux, Django, PostgreSQL, React Native, AWS and much more. You'll also have an opportunity to contribute and shape the technical architecture.

What You'll Do

  • First Week: You'll ship new code to production
  • First Month: You'll write code at several levels of the stack, from infrastructure to the API to the UI
  • First Six Months: You'll take ownership of an entire set of features and make decisions that impact many clients
  • First Year: You'll help guide our team as we make broad technical decisions impacting our stack, our products, and the growth of the entire company

About You

  • 1+ years of work experience at a company that produces software for end users as it primary function
  • You care deeply about the code you write and either have significant technical skills solving real-world problems or the drive to quickly develop them
  • You're a highly-motivated self-starter who wants to make valuable contributions to a team from day 1
  • You're an engaged learner—you want to expand your skills, get your hands dirty, and find solutions to challenging problems that require tradeoffs
  • You want to work in a fun environment where you can form real friendships with other professionals and where you have a strong sense of belonging at a growing startup
  • You're excited to pitch in where ever needed, from helping in recruiting to supporting customers
  • You are looking to join a dynamic team immediately 

About the Software Development Team

  • We're a fast-growing team that is dedicated to improving our people, processes, and platform. The team is primarily structured in product-oriented squads.
  • We support many different products but internally think of them as one system with a single unified codebase. Our goal is to build centralized systems that handle complex problems for multiple features and products.
  • We’re focused on doing the important things the right way -- we write solid documentation, test our code well, design for scale, and follow defined software development processes.
  • We follow best-in-class security practices to safeguard our data and application against bad actors. We regularly test and update processes and technology to fight complacency, because we know good security is a continuous effort.
  • We curate high-quality datasets that are essential for effective mapping and tracking of the government and public affairs spaces. Our datasets underpin our promise to give users the information necessary to make smart decisions that influence policy.
  • We set rigorous quality standards and monitor them with a mix of programmatic and manual verifications to ensure users maintain a high degree of trust in our systems.
  • We’re very close as a team and invest not only in each others’ skills and careers but also in building real relationships with one another: product development is a team sport and we believe that it’s better (and more fun) to work on a team of people that you know well and care about.

Our Work Environment

We are a hybrid team with flexible work options: work remotely or you may choose to come into our vibrant, sunlit space in our modern, open concept office in Washington DC.
