Technical Project Manager – USAFacts

Bellevue, WA


The Organization:

At USAFacts, we believe facts deserve to be heard. We are on a mission to provide a comprehensive 

and unbiased look at our country by the numbers. Democracy thrives on serious, reasoned, and 

informed debate and we are here for it. Founded and funded by Steve Ballmer, former CEO of Microsoft, USAFacts answers questions around government spending and outcomes. While these are basic questions, finding the answers is hard. But it is also pretty exciting. We pull together data from thousands of jurisdictions, normalize, contextualize, and visualize these metrics so that it is approachable and understandable. We learn something about our country every day, how to make complex data understandable, and how to make the American people interested in the numbers. We’re a very collaborative group and are always learning from each other, too. The team is mission-driven. We have no political agenda nor commercial incentive; we do this work purely as a public service.
