Action Builder is an organizing CRM from Action Network, a not-for-profit technology company building infrastructure for the progressive movement. We care passionately about creating a better world, and build the tools to make that world a reality.  

The person in this role will be a crucial utility player, ensuring our AWS architecture remains stable while implementing new features on our Rails/GraphQL backend. You will join a team with a half time dev ops architect, a full time backend developer, a full time Javascript dev and a full time design technologist (design, CSS/HTML). 

The Role

Our tool entered rolling launch mode six months ago, and is being used by organizers across the US and Canada. We have two backend developers, a javascript developer, a design technologist and soon, you, a developer comfortable with optimizing AWS architecture, expertise in Rails and some familiarity with GraphQL. You should be comfortable working with an existing code base, while also creatively diving into solutions for optimizing our systems and workflows. 

  • Manage our AWS infrastructure, including monitoring for downtime, enhancing our security protocols and upgrading systems as needed.
  • Participate in key phases of the product development lifecycle, including making recommendations for approach to development, identifying and resolving bugs, and digging into our systems architecture and processes for medium term optimization. 
  • Build on our excellent documentation so the dev team can go to git and find out how things should (and do) work. 
  • Contribute to a collaborative culture by working with all members of the organization to advocate for our users.

  • Experience solving performance and scaling issues on the Ruby on Rails Stack
  • Experience with SQL Databases and Optimization
  • Experience with Javascript 


  • Experience with Elastic Search
  • Experience with Elastic Compute
  • Experience in an Agile environment
  • Experience with Angular

North America preferred, but no location requirements.

Salary & Benefits 

We believe in living our values, and creating a work culture that looks like what the future of work should be. The salary range is $95,000-$110,000 annually, with family healthcare, dental, vision and a 401(k) grant. We offer unlimited vacation (with a two week annual minimum), sick leave, paid holidays and parental leave. 

Equal Opportunity

We are an equal opportunity employer, and firmly believe that respecting all people and building diverse teams should be a cornerstone of the progressive movement. We encourage you to apply and join us!
