Protect Democracy is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to protecting US democracy. Our project utilizes machine learning and data science to analyze changes to voter registration files and ensure the integrity of US elections. We are seeking a contract for a full-time front-end developer for 3 months, with the potential to extend. Office is located in NYC, but we can accommodate the right remote candidate if necessary. Compensation is competitive, and commensurate with experience.
Our culture principles emphasize that there is strength in diversity as we believe diverse teams are more innovative, creative, and productive. Even if you aren’t sure if you meet all required skills, we encourage you to apply. We encourage applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, disability, and veteran status.
