Running for office is hard work – and the outdated software that runs campaigns makes it even harder. We believe it doesn’t have to be that way. That’s why we’re building Numero, a modern financial platform that Members of Congress, Senate, and Presidential candidates rely on to manage the $4.5 billion in payment processing, donor management, and compliance for their political campaigns.
We’re a team of technologists, software engineers, and financial professionals who have founded several startups and managed a run for U.S. Congress. We’re backed by Y Combinator, Initialized Capital and angel investors including the co-founders and leaders of Instagram, Reddit, Codecademy, Netflix, and WIRED.
We’re looking for software engineers who are excited to help us build out the financial software used by some of the country's highest profile political campaigns – come join us!
Inspired by the current state of politics, there’s been a 40% increase in the number of people running for office. People from every background imaginable have stepped up to run, including our CEO, Brian, who ran for Congress last year. Our other two co-founders, Susie and Karan, led finance and technology on his campaign. They experienced the painful process of manually stitching together critical finance and compliance data using outdated campaign software – and built their own solutions for those challenges.
Every feature of Numero is built from the ground-up with deep empathy for our users. We get their pain points because they were our pain points. Our mission is to liberate hardworking candidates and campaign staff from that painful process, letting them focus on their most important work: talking with voters and representing their communities!
Our CEO, Brian, was a Senior Tech Advisor in the Obama White House, taught at MIT, and co-founded one of the largest phone companies in Nicaragua. Our CTO, Karan, oversaw the technical infrastructure of 80 campaigns last cycle and is a 3x startup CTO. Our CFO, Susie, was the Corporate VP of Finance & Accounting for AECOM, an 87,000-person company.
We believe our democracy is strongest when it’s represented by the diversity of our country. Similarly, we believe the strength of our company will come from the diversity of our employees – that's why we've worked hard to ensure that our cap table is fully diverse and that half of our angel investors are women. If you share our values and enthusiasm for strengthening our democracy, you’ll be at home at Numero!
We are a small, tight-knit, and diverse team building products that are used every day by some of our country’s most important elected leaders and their staff. In addition to offering challenging projects and rewarding work, we offer competitive salaries and generous equity.
We know that early employees like you are taking a chance on us as much as we are on you, so we compensate you accordingly! We also want to empower you to do the best work of your career. To do that, we provide the following benefits:
Most exciting of all, you’ll have the opportunity to work closely with our founding team and angel investors who have deep experience at the intersection of politics and technology.
