We’re hiring developers

If you’re a software developer and you’d like to join an innovative social impact company with a proven track record and big ambitions, this is the opportunity for you! We’re looking for a Senior Full Stack Developer, an Intermediate Full Stack / Back-End Developer and a Front-End Developer.

We have built a technology platform that connects people who want to make a difference to the Causes that need their help. Our dream is to reinvent the social impact space by helping corporates leverage their human capital to create change. This platform is used by 18 major brands. We have more than 50,000 users whose actions and donations have had a big impact on society.

Our SaaS product allows big corporates to create, scale and measure employee volunteering programmes, a critical piece of the employee engagement ecosystem. We’re proudly ‘for profit’, believing in making money through purpose-driven business.

Who we are

We’re a small company of eleven dedicated people who are all about taking responsibilityclose-collaboration, teamwork and frequent communication. We make most decisions together – from long-term strategy to day-to-day implementation choices. Being part of a small team, we have the opportunity to get involved in other areas of the business as well (great environment for personal and career growth).

Where you come in

Our primary focus is on the people we serve, and the product we provide to achieve this. We’re conservative about changing technologies and have a stable codebase. We deploy code anywhere from several times a week to several times a day.

We use ‘ordinary’ technologies (listed below) and all of us work on the entire stack. We don’t expect you to have experience with all of the technology we use, or even to have used all of them before. What we do expect from you is to do your best and to learn our tools, codebase and way of working. You’ll be working with our CTO and two other intermediate to senior developers.

The tech stack and tools we use includes C#, .Net, React, Ionic, Typescript, Azure, Postgresql, Visual Studio, VSCode & Git.

What’s next

Our hiring process is based on alignment of values, cultural addition, style of working and the ability to solve problems and deliver working software. We’re less interested in whether you have a degree and more interested in what experience you’ve gathered. We’re looking for a Senior Full Stack Developer with a minimum of 8 years experience, an Intermediate Full Stack or Back-End Developer with at least 4 years experience and a Front-End Developer who’s been coding for at least 3 years.

  • Send your CV
  • Casual (remote) coffee with our CTO
  • Pair coding session with our CTO
  • Team Interview to check for culture addition
  • Offer of employment
