Join Andrew Yang and the fight to put Humanity First as he runs for president in 2020!

One of the most exciting and unique candidates in the 2020 election, Andrew Yang is an entrepreneur running for President as a Democrat in 2020. In 2011, he founded Venture for America, a national entrepreneurship fellowship, and spent helped create 2,500 jobs in cities like Cleveland, Detroit, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh. When Andrew realized that new technology like artificial intelligence threatened to eliminate one-third of all American jobs, he knew he had to do something. In The War on Normal People (2018), he explains the mounting crisis and makes the case for implementing a universal basic income: $1,000 a month for every American adult, no strings attached.

Every campaign claims to be data driven. After working for us, you'll realize everyone else is just fooling themselves.

Yang2020 is able to attract world-class talent from diverse sources outside of the political sphere. One place where we need help is with politics-specific technology. We're looking for experts in VAN, the DNC Voter File, Phoenix/Vertica, ActionKit, and other political platforms.

This is a great opportunity for someone with previous political experience to get on the fast track to a higher position. If you're a VAN guru on the average campaign you're a face in the crowd; here you'd be a valued subject matter expert.

We would prefer to hire people in NY or who can relocate, but we're open to remote work for the right candidate.

Skills:

    • Producing lists of people to contact by querying databases
    • Coordinating list production with state teams
    • Creating reports on the state of the campaign and our tools
    • Doing cost/benefit analysis on our current programs and providing strategic advice
    • Expertise in at least one piece of political technology and prior campaign experience
Working for the data team is a chance to use your craft to make a major impact on Yang2020 and the world. You are not going to find a campaign that is more receptive to data-based feedback.
