Know Your Politician

An online platform aimed at educating voters in the US about their elected officials and candidates.



KYP, a small startup, sought to develop an MVP portal that would educate US voters about their elected officials. The portal needed to enable voters to identify their candidates for upcoming elections by entering their addresses. Additionally, voters should be able to learn about each candidate’s position on various topics, including housing, abortion, and more. The system was also required to provide an admin with the ability to track business KPIs using a data reporting tool.

Know Your Politician


We assisted KYP in the development of their portal, which was constructed using a microservices-based architecture. This involved separating functions into REST APIs, CSV file processing, image processing, and data reporting tool. Additionally, the portal offered a comprehensive administration panel to manage the data source. To provide an aggregated KPI dashboard for analytics and reporting, we built the data reporting tool on AWS QuickSight.

The team was very transparent. Whenever we discussed how requirements were being interpreted, they listened, understood, and fit those requirements into the necessary Sprint without causing much pushback, which was critical for helping us complete our MVP in a timely manner.
