Everybody Votes Campaign (EVC) is a national non-partisan, not-for-profit hiring staff for a large-scale coordinated civic engagement campaign active through the 2024 election cycle. The campaign aims to create a more representative democracy by registering millions of underrepresented voters across the country. This effort focuses on voter registration in a targeted fashion by conducting at-scale, effective, efficient, metrics-driven registration work. Through this work, we seek to fundamentally change the make-up of the electorate and to increase the political power of traditionally underrepresented communities in our democracy.

We directly fund organizations who execute voter registration and run quality control operations. We are dedicated to being active participants with the organizations to ensure their programs are effective and promote an investment in the future of emerging communities.


EVC seeks a Data Engineer to implement, maintain, and optimize voter registration data pipelines. The Data Engineer will be responsible for large scale reporting automation with a particular focus on standardizing complicated voter registration data across multiple databases, working closely on a multidisciplinary team of engineers, analysts, project managers, and field practitioners. This individual will be at the forefront of the campaign’s effort to develop advanced voter registration dashboards and pipeline solutions, working closely with partner organizations. The Data Engineer will report to the Director of Data Products.


  • Centralize data from disparate sources across multiple databases and use innovative hygiene solutions to clean up traditionally complicated voter registration data

  • Optimize and automate the campaign’s voter registration data pipeline, integrate new external data sources, and help our data team automate and streamline manual reporting processes

  • Set best practices for data standardization and refinement

  • Participate in maintaining a well-documented, consistent codebase

  • Work as a team: pair-program, review code, co-design and plan, develop a shared vision for and an understanding of the work, document progress in JIRA and Confluence

This is a great opportunity for someone who:

  • Enjoys coming up with creative solutions to big questions through collaboration, and is able to use immediate challenges as windows into future opportunities.

  • Notices and fixes errors that others might overlook. Acknowledges mistakes and turns them into learning opportunities. Has a track record of leaving things better than they found them – simplified pipelines, strong documentation, code sharing discipline.

  • Plans ahead and finds alternative paths, when needed, to get to the finish line. Bounces back from setbacks and rejections. Holds a high bar when things are hectic.

  • Brings civic engagement experience working for or with groups that serve communities of color.

  • Stays ahead of the curve in an ever-changing technology environment.

  • Identifies decisions, policies, or practices that have disparate impacts based on identity. Is driven to make changes in systems and practices to operationalize equity.


  • Growth mindset: demonstrated ability to take and receive feedback with professionalism and grace from peers and staff as well as supervisors

  • Relentlessly goal-oriented: enjoys working toward and achieving ambitious goals; willing to go over, under, around, or through any obstacle that gets in the way of meeting goals with a proven track record of creating and executing/managing comprehensive strategic goals

  • Cultural competency: able to build relationships and collaborate with colleagues, partners, and stakeholders across multiple lines of identity difference

  • Keeps Calm in Stressful Situations: demonstrated capacity and willingness to work long hours during peak season, rolling up their sleeves and getting the work done


  • Proficiency and experience using APIs to push and pull data

  • Strong knowledge of SQL and management of relational databases (in particular, Redshift and PostgreSQL)

  • Experience working with messy data, and creating and maintaining data pipelines

  • Strong proficiency in programming (preference for Python)

  • Experience writing and editing clear, clean code and a willingness to use version control systems like git and Github

  • Interest in being a member of a diverse, multidisciplinary team that communicates technical concepts to non-technical audiences

Helpful but not required:

  • Previous experience working in the field of voter registration or voting rights

  • Familiar with cloud infrastructure (e.g. AWS, GCP)

  • Understanding of Terminal and the command line interface

  • Experience creating reports using data visualization & business intelligence tools (e.g. Tableau, PowerBI, Periscope, Google Data Studio)
