We tackle hard problems that can only be solved with creative minds and diverse thinking.



Thresher is an exciting, growing startup. We’re profitable and have been from day one. We are a fully-remote team with current employees in DC, LA, and Boston. Our team is creative, clever, dedicated, and tightly connected. Join us to work with people who have diverse experiences in data science, social science, engineering, international relations, and life. Together we’ll work on challenging technical and data problems in the government and commercial sectors.


Medical benefits

Thresher offers medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and their families. All employees are eligible for 20 vacation days, 9 holidays, and 9 sick days. (We know that a healthy employee is a happy employee. We all work hard but have real lives too.) We offer a SIMPLE IRA with an employer match, and we provide maternity and paternity leave.

Work remotely

We've designed our culture and our tools to foster a team that is integrated across time zones and work styles. We focus on delivering and measuring results. We work hard to be good communicators. This means we can support flexible schedules... so you can have time for your life interests, whether they be kids, pets, or your superstar kickball league.

Career enhancement

Our team regularly engages with local organizations to give and get input that makes us better contributors. We are active participants in Mission Link, Dcode42, WIT, Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network, Women Who Code, Lesbians Who Tech, General Assembly, data science meetups, and events at think-tanks and many universities.

Diversity promise
