  • Ability to build and develop a strong team of developers working to maximize the impact of social good organizations through technology
  • Entrepreneurial thinking and the ability to act effectively with only high-level direction.
  • Hustling skills - a lot of great connections and opportunities are discovered simply by getting out and talking to people. This is something you should be able to do well.

What?

  • Create technical content for publication on our blog, marketing campaigns, and other channels to show developers in nonprofits how to implement specific solutions or use new technologies.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
