Rally
Rally is a women-owned, early stage political technology company building a suite of tools that enable progressive political campaigns and advocacy organizations to run successful, data-driven relational organizing programs. The founding team has run organizing programs for Jon Ossoff, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg, and built consumer-facing civic tech products from the ground up.

Relational organizing is the simple, proven concept that people talking to their friends and family is more effective than strangers talking to strangers. Relational organizing isn’t new—but many progressive campaigns and organizations have yet to meaningfully build programs around asking people to disseminate messaging to their friends, persuade their family members, and mobilize their networks.

We are just getting started on our mission of building progressive political power through the strength of human relationships. During the 2022 midterm elections, we powered scaled relational programs across 6 battleground states—and in the Georgia runoff election, we mobilized 1481 Community Ambassadors to reach out to 67,648 people in their communities to vote for Warnock. 

We have ambitious goals to bring an integrated relational organizing platform to life for the 2023-2024 election cycle, empowering people to drive change in their communities and enabling campaign organizers to understand the impact of their programs. 

If this sounds exciting to you, we’d love to hear from you!

The role
We’re looking for a senior software engineer who is excited to work across the stack, deliver on our product roadmap, and contribute to Rally’s engineering foundations. This role will report into the Head of Engineering.

We are a small and mighty team who enjoy working collaboratively and creatively to solve hard problems. As we look towards the 2023-2024 election cycle, we will be building zero to one products and further productionizing our MVP to support relational programs running across all 50 states.

  • You own projects from inception through production, iterating and shipping incrementally

    • Experience working on a distributed team
    • Familiarity with public cloud platforms, like GCP or AWS

Tell us about the interview process for this job

We strive to make our interview process as representative to the job as possible. After a resume review, there is a 1 hr conversation with Nick to tell you more about Rally, get to know you a bit better and learn about your experiences, have a high-level (no code!) technical discussion, and provide space for you to ask questions. After that, there is a 2 hour take-home project so that you can time + space to think about the problem as if you were working on a feature followed by a 1 hour take-home review with Nora and Nick so that we can learn more about your thought process and ask questions of each other. If a candidate continues through, there is a 1 hour with Nora to learn more about you, how you collaborate with product and design, how you show up as a leader, and more. The final stage is 30 minutes with Davis, Rally's CEO, to learn more about each other.

Tell us about your diversity and inclusion efforts

Rally is a woman-led team of technologists, organizers, designers, engineers, artists, and advocates. We are looking to build an organization that is as diverse as our voting population so that we continue building products that drive progressive change in our society. We are new company, and it's important to us that we invest in equitable hiring processes from the beginning--which is what led us to Techqueria!
