We are a funded start up with an experienced founding team who is looking to add to our team. We exist because we believe millions of people are "leaning forward" asking how they can do more to change the world... a pent up demand to do more. We believe giving is personal, and we want to connect with our good.
You feel the same way. You most likely already have a job and are busy, but are looking for a bigger challenge and want to make a bigger difference via the work you do. You want to influence the world.
We are creating a social platform, with all the attributes of any scalable, social, digital consumer platform, and we believe we can apply social design to influence a new generation of philanthropy.
You will own technical design and development of our product. You will be responsible for leading the company's technology from a development, quality, and operations perspective.
