We are a product company currently building products for the political campaigning market. We are currently operational only in USA and Canada. We started this company after Sangeeth Peruri (one of the founders) ran for a school board election in California and used a unique friend-to-friend outreach strategy to win the election (Sangeeth had 1/10th the budget compared to his opponent). Post this election, Sangeeth got together with two other founders Joseph Towne and Vivek Katta to productize the same friend-to-friend outreach strategy that he used manually. The United States alone conducts upwards of half a million elections per four-year election cycle. That is a massive market, which has not seen any innovation in this decade. VoterCircle is headquartered in Los Altos, California. All sales, marketing and support is run out of the United States. The entire engineering is run out of our Bangalore office. We currently have 12 engineers. We are a small, funded startup (latest funding round closing in Jan, 2018) with some high profile investors and advisors. We are currently generating revenue and serving hundreds of campaigns. You get to work with some extremely smart people and work on really interesting problems. You are expected to have a dynamic, can-do attitude and typically wear multiple hats.
