Vidaloop is changing the way Americans understand the political landscape and how it relates to them.

Why do you want to work at Vidaloop?

* Make an impact. So many Americans don’t exercise their right to vote because it’s difficult to get unbiased information on candidates and exhausting to track if their vote is truly making a difference. Vidaloop is aiming to solve this problem and increase voter turnout through our civic engagement platform, Voterly.

* Work with a modern tech stack. Microservices, Serverless, Typescript, and NoSQL aren’t just buzzwords. At Vidaloop, we’ve leveraged modern technologies on top of AWS to build a robust decoupled architecture that can grow with us. Constant integration and automated deployments ensure that we spend our time building products instead of checking for regressions or fiddling with AWS configurations. We provide a technologically advanced environment with new Macbooks, ergonomic keyboards, and electronic height-adjustable desks.

* Culture of freedom and responsibility. We hire motivated and intelligent people who are excited about the problems we’re solving and do great work. This means you won’t be micromanaged and you can choose the hours you work.

* Shape the company, grow with us. Get in on the ground floor of a rapidly-growing startup. We’re looking for talented, well-rounded people to help us shape our company culture and blaze a trail in the civic tech space.
