Description

There’s an abundance of valuable public data out there, but it’s buried in siloed, balkanized government databases where it lies largely unusable. Vigilant is a platform for public records data search and monitoring. We unlock that information, make it actionable, and help our customers leverage it to make critical decisions. 

Our customers span financial services, politics, public affairs, and media. Our product suite includes a universal search layer for public data and sophisticated monitoring systems.

Our team is a mix of engineers, open data geeks, and political researchers. We’re looking for candidates comfortable in a high-growth, fast-paced environment. We value tenacity, a commitment to learning, collaboration and direct communication, diverse opinions, and a deep-seated belief in the power of data to inform and improve how things get done.
