The Opportunity
The DNC is investing in an unprecedented scale of in-house national voter contact programs, online engagement and mobilization, and centralized support of on-the-ground state efforts through the 2022 cycle. 

In order to efficiently support these programs, and ensure we have an ability to measure what’s working and optimize outreach over time, we are investing in building out the technological infrastructure & analytics capabilities to keep pace with these scaling volunteer engagement & voter contact efforts.

This role sits within the tech team and requires deep cross functional collaboration within Tech and across other departments at the DNC, most notably, our political and distributed organizing teams.
