Named a top D.C. startup to watch in 2016, 2017, and 2018, Quorum is software built for public affairs, providing one place for stakeholder engagement, legislative tracking, and grassroots advocacy. Thousands of public affairs professionals use Quorum for their work in Congress, all 50 state legislatures, major U.S. cities, and the European Union. Quorum remains entirely bootstrapped, having never raised venture capital funding, and works with organizations like Coca-Cola, the United Nations Foundation, Sierra Club, General Motors, Lyft, and the U.S. Travel Association.
Founded in 2014, Quorum is headquartered in Washington, D.C. with an international office in Brussels. Called
The Moneyball Effect on K Street by the Washington Post and
Google for Congress by the Huffington Post, Quorum has been featured in over 50 news outlets and is used by Walmart, Coca-Cola, Apple, the United Nations, and many other companies, trade associations, and advocacy groups.
We're a small team that works fast. Iterating and shipping code quickly is in our DNA. Done is better than perfect, but we do our best to build systems that let us move quickly without breaking too many things.
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 the hard stuff for multiple features and products.
We live on the cutting edge of software engineering in both our frontend and backend. We rely heavily on open source tools but aren't afraid to dig in and make something better ourselves.
We're very close as a team — we work together, hang out together, eat together, and some of us even live together. Previously, The Washingtonian described us as
DC's nerdiest group house... shaking up Washington’s oldest trade.
We trust our team to make good decisions when it comes to how and when they want to work. We don’t limit you to a particular number of days off or require you to be in the office—do what you need to be successful and productive.
In our early startup days we lived together in a house and ate dinner together as a team every night. We’ve kept that culture alive as we’ve grown and provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner (plus lots of snacks!) at the office.
When it’s easier to stay fit it’s easier to stay healthy. Our office has a fully-stocked gym + showers, and, if you’re feeling ambitious, our biweekly “Quorum Fit” squad will have you out of breath in no time.
We believe that strong teams take the time to plan and communicate, which is why we bring the whole team together quarterly to talk about our goals, the state of the company, and of course eat together (because what would a Quorum event be without food?) In addition, the Dev Team also has a yearly offsite retreat where we do zero work and take a few days to just spend time together.
Career growth is important at Quorum. In addition to active mentorship and intentional system to help engineers grow, we encourage our engineers to attend conferences and workshops and have a professional development budget to help make that happen.
We know that family is important. So, we support our team members’ goals of growing their families by offering generous paid maternity, paternity, adoption, and fostering leave.
Trampoline dodgeball? Check. Apple picking in the fall? That too. Open-air double decker bus tours of DC with commentary provided by team members? A Quorum tradition. We believe that our team works together better because we have fun together.
