Data Engineer

Job description

What we’re doing
Did you know it takes a congressional office, on average, 45 days to respond to the most basic constituent request? We view this as a fundamental breakdown in the UX of representative democracy and we're building a platform to fix it.

Indigov is a constituent relationship management suite for modern representatives. Our platform reduces response times from weeks to minutes for 90% of inbound communication. We spent two years going through an exhaustive technical and legal review process with House of Representatives and are now live in member offices. We are expanding rapidly and need additional team members to join us in our pursuit to build the future of representative democracy across federal, state, and local governments.

Who we are
We are a group of technologists and entrepreneurs passionate about increasing the efficiency of representative democracy for both representatives and those they serve. We have been executives, technicians, and leaders at institutions such as U.S. Congress, Google, Dropbox, USDS, as well as large e-commerce, digital-first media, civic and gov-tech companies.

What you'll do
  • Data Engineer passionate about architecting and maintaining data pipelines, ingestion, optimization, collection, analysis, and normalization
  • Ability to learn the process and standards for our data ETL when working with our government partners
  • Design system architecture in AWS

About you
  • 2- 4 years of data engineering experience, ideally at a fast-growing Saas Company
  • Comfortable working in SQL and relational databases
  • Some knowledge of query optimization, data compression and streaming techniques
  • Some experience building ETL and data pipelines, e.g. Airflow, Prefect, etc.
  • General comfort developing in a well-documented service architecture
  • Strong cross-functional communication skills
  • Experience in tech startups is a plus

What makes an ideal candidate
  • Passion for meaningfully fixing a core component of our democracy
  • Accountability & ownership. In a small team of early employees it is crucial that we all own the outcome and quality of our work. The buck always stops with you!
  • Grit. Working with government can be challenging in ways that startups aren’t, but the scale and importance of the problems we are solving more than make up for it. We are looking for folks that share that mentality.

Working at Indigov
  • Competitive salary, equity, healthcare, and 401k
  • High-degree of autonomy, flexible remote work, and unlimited PTO
  • Drive technical direction of the company and help improve the efficacy of the U.S. government
  • Equal opportunity employer
