Impactive (formerly Outvote), backed by YCombinator and Higher Ground Labs, is an all-in-one hub for digital organizing. We power the organizing efforts of some of the country’s largest progressive campaigns, advocacy organizations, and unions.
We’ve worked with over 1,000 campaigns and organizations nationwide since our founding in 2017. Volunteers have used Impactive to send hundreds of millions of text messages on behalf of Biden/Harris 2020, Planned Parenthood, the DCCC, SEIU, When We All Vote, Community Change Action, and many more. Our work has been featured in The New York Times, Washington Post, POLITICO, TechCrunch, and Fast Company.
In 2022, Impactive will continue scaling our impact to new heights with the addition of our exciting broadcast texting and phone banking features. Join our team at this critical moment and dedicate your talent to fueling the progressive movement!
Impactive’s Senior Software Engineer (Rails Focused) will be responsible for owning and maintaining the entire Impactive backend. They will write code and contribute to the development process, collaborating with the CTO, Lead Engineer, and other employees and contractors on everything from planning technical requirements and design to testing and implementation.
We don’t expect individual candidates to have expertise across all of these areas—we’re looking for candidates that are particularly strong in a few areas, and are excited to learn in others.
We eagerly accept applicants with diverse backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. Impactive is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate our employees’ differences, and know that differences — of all kinds — make us infinitely stronger.
