Democratic National Committee is hiring a

Database Administrator


There is a critical moment—between the news events, viral videos, speeches, and debate performances that captivate America—when a college student decides to phone bank, a veteran decides to canvass, or a grandparent decides to support the future we all want for the next generation. These people turn to the DNC's website, tools, and volunteers to learn more about how they can get involved.

Our tech team needs to produce reliable systems that empower our organizers, volunteers and analysts to work efficiently, while supporting the DNC's spirit of exploration as we search for new ways to engage every voter.

The DNC uses cutting-edge technology, developed by veterans of the biggest tech-industry players, and partner it with systems that have been specially developed to support on-the-ground organizing and activism.

We deal with many backends and especially appreciate knowledge of Vertica, Postgres and distributed SQL databases.  We’re looking for candidates with extensive database administration skills who are aware of the effects of networking and hardware on reliable performance in distributed systems.  Our stack is built on AWS by former Netflix talent to be secure, scalable, and easily recoverable.
