Why join us?

  • The problem: 76% of voters are concerned about hacked elections; most states use voting machines that are 10+ years old; voting machines are proprietary, opaque and 10x the price of similar off-the-shelf hardware; 8 million blind and 32 million illiterate people are expected to vote on separate and unequal equipment that is antiquated and rarely used.

  • Work with Ben Adida (@benadida), long time voting security expert, formerly at Clever (VP Eng), Square (Dir. Eng), Mozilla (Dir. Eng).

  • We're using off the shelf hardware and open source software to build better, more secure machines at a much lower cost.

Working at VotingWorks

We're a mission driven flat organization, building a remote culture from the ground up (so for example we take documentation really seriously). We build towards customer-facing milestones (for example we're supporting our first US political elections this summer!) We value simplicity, iteration, explicit prioritization, and questioning assumptions - what we refer to as trust but verify. We also value sustainability. Securing election tech is a long term, hard problem and we want our team to stick together for the long term as well.

Perks & benefits
  • Company Retreats

    We prioritize meeting in person quarterly either with customers or at offsites.

  • Generous Vacation
  • Maternal/Paternal Leave

    We value families and many of us are parents. We'll create a generous maternity/paternity leave plan as soon as the need arises.

  • Health Insurance

    We will be providing full medical coverage

  • Work from Home

    We're remote so your primary office will be at home.
