Hillary Clinton's campaign is hiring, and for 2016, the job board is tech-heavy. Thursday night, the online application form for the Clinton campaign went live. One thing is for sure: There's a Clinton app on the way.

The application form lists the following tech-based teams: 

  • Android
  • Backend Development (Python)
  • DevOps
  • Digital
  • Frontend Development
  • iOS
  • Product Management
  • Project Management
  • Social Media
  • UX Design

A section of the app also is dedicated to an applicant's software/program proficiency. Beyond having a basic knowledge of Microsoft Office, the Clinton campaign is looking for engineers who know Python, SAS, SQL, SPSS, Ruby on Rails, GIS, Go and Hadoop.

The Clinton campaign already is backed by some of the most savvy digital strategists in political campaigning. Teddy Goff, who worked as the digital director for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign in 2012, is serving as Clinton's chief digital strategist. Former Google director of product management Stephanie Hannon was hired as the Clinton campaign's chief technology officer. 

The Huffington Post reported that Goff had sent out an email to industry contacts earlier this week to look for recruits, including those "for every kind of tech and digital position you can think of." The Clinton campaign’s director of talent acquisition, Nathaniel Koloc, has been reaching out to potential recruits via Twitter, and the reach has extended beyond the traditional hubs. 

Clinton's campaign already has proved to have a prominent online strategy. Clinton announced her presidential run via a YouTube video. The candidate also launched an online Flickr account for campaign images.
The campaign's job board reveals that the candidate is looking to continue its digital focus and will presumably launch mobile applications.
Both the Obama and the Mitt Romney campaigns released mobile apps after the candidates had received the nomination. Obama's first app for the 2012 campaign listed information on local events. A second app served as a database for registered voters and helped campaign mobilization. Romney's app provided breaking news on the candidate.
The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond for a request for comment on what function its apps could serve.
