Our products are proven, our customer references are superb, and when we enter a state, our market share quickly exceeds 50%. While our roots are in Boston, we have a diverse team with staff in Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Maryland, and British Columbia.  

We bring a fresh approach to the election industry with professionals of different backgrounds paired with leading election industry veterans who have all joined Clear Ballot to harness technology to advance the future of elections. Our product development teams create high-quality elections software and hardware systems that bring a new level of transparency to the market.

Key Responsibilities:

Clear Ballot is seeking a Senior Full Stack Software Engineer who be a key contributor to our voting system products, including the ClearVote™ suite. In this role, you’ll:

Desired Skills and Experience:

Our ideal Senior Full Stack Software Engineer will have: 

  • 5+ years of hands-on experience writing maintainable, testable software, and writing unit tests for that software.

  • 2+ years of experience with relational databases. 
  • 2+ years of experience using git, modern issue tracking systems (e.g. Jira), and CI/CD and code repository tools (e.g. Jenkins, Travis, GitLab).
  • A career spent working in collaborative, agile software development teams.  
  • A track record as a collaborative, communicative teammate, and an excellent mentor to other engineers.
