Quorum

Come join the Quorum development team next summer! Named the top D.C. startup to watch in 2016, Quorum has been called the “Google for Congress” by the Huffington Post and described as the “Moneyball Effect on K Street” by the Washington Post. Summer interns will build features to improve the understanding and accessibility of the legislative process that will be used by the House Majority Leader, House Democratic Whip, The United Nations Foundation, Toyota, General Motors, The First Focus Campaign for Children, Esty, and the Club for Growth. Applicants should have taken at least CS50/CS51/CS124 or equivalent by the start of the internship. Having completed previous  internships in tech and having experience with either Django or the Reach front-end ecosystem is a plus. Quorum was founded in 2013 by two Harvard roommates and won the Harvard Innovation Challenge and the IOP’s Gov 2.0 grant.

2017 Intern Reflection:

Intering at Quorum is an amazingly rewarding experience; its unique start-up culture allows you to interact closely with extremely knowledgeable co-workers both on and off work, and to see your code have a definite impact on the product. Through this internship, I am learning about not only the technical skills such as working with databases, data scraping/management, and pythonic programming, but also leading a successful start-up as well as the structure and processes within congress and the political sphere in DC. It truly is the perfect opportunity to take the technical skills from school and apply it in a more practical setting, on top of meeting many brilliant people and exploring the city. I came into the job not quite knowing what to expect, but I have quickly realized that working at Quorum will be one of the most fulfilling summer experiences I will ever have.
