MoveOn’s millions of members generate site traffic that would make most startups jealous. We have terabytes of data that drive ambitious analytics, fundraising, and engagement programs. At MoveOn, making decisions with data is a core part of how all work gets done. Like many nonprofit tech teams, we're a small, scrappy team, wear many hats, and work across the software stack.
While we often split up who is working on which projects, everyone on the team works on all parts of our systems. We have ~10 production systems—and two systems running at significant scale—getting thousands of requests a minute during spikes of member energy. We believe in choosing the best language, platform, and tool for the job and are not language zealots, but we also recognize the switching cost of straddling too many languages.
Note: “Senior” doesn’t = a particular number of years. We understand everyone gets to a senior engineer level at different rates and through different experiences. The skills list below is intended to encapsulate what it would take to be successful in a senior engineering role at MoveOn.
