Careers at Applecart

We are a team of best-in-class strategists, statisticians, machine learning experts, engineers, and operations pros. We utilize our unique combination of political, business, and technical experience to build scalable, data-driven solutions to address the toughest problems facing the nation’s largest political, nonprofit, and corporate organizations.

A "social network" is far more than an online communication platform - it is the foundation upon which every consequential decision gets made. That's why we've made it our mission to map every real-world relationship between two people, and to leverage the totality of those human relationships to achieve path-breaking results.

Up for a challenge? Want to make real-world impact a part of your daily routine? We want the brightest minds to join the Applecart team.

The Applecart Story

“Their story reads like a film treatment: Three college students—all politics junkies—meet through their involvement in campus politics and hit it off.

What Our Team Has to Say

"At Applecart, no two problems are the same. As data scientists, this means we take inspiration from cutting-edge research, prototype minimum viable solutions, and design custom implementations that are performant at scale. Our culture is incredibly collaborative and strongly encourages growth, so we’re always trading ideas with and receiving constructive criticism from other data scientists and engineers."

Danny Vilela Data Scientist

"At Applecart, I get to work every day right at the intersection of data engineering and data science: architecting and coding scalable data pipelines while making dozens of data-driven decisions around data schemas, feature engineering, entity resolution and more. Coming from Google, I appreciate the dynamic, fast-paced startup culture and the high level of autonomy & ownership I have over my work."

D. Clay Hambrick, PhD Senior Software Engineer & Architect

"Applecart pairs the ingenuity of a San Francisco technology startup with the shrewdness of a Washington public affairs firm. The team of data scientists, political strategists, and engineers that I work with every day are some of the most compelling folks I’ve ever met. Applecart’s company culture encourages collaboration, innovation, and fun. Because of all this, no project ever seems too hard or idea too crazy."
