At Give Lively, we build better fundraising tech for nonprofits and give it away for free.

As a Senior Engineer, you'll develop and iterate on products that drastically improve the online giving experience for donors and help nonprofits raise more for their cause. You'll be a core member of our engineering team, helping to evolve our product suite, collaborating on architectural decisions, assisting other engineers, and moving us forward on our journey towards a more philanthropic world.

What We Value in a Senior Engineer:

- BS or MS in Computer Science or significant practical expertise in both client-side and server-side programming
- 5+ years experience in building and deploying web-based products
- Significant experience in software architecture and patterns/abstractions for efficient and sustainable code delivery
- Experience and interest in scaling systems for growth (we're in a growth stage)
- Experience with and a proponent of agile methodologies and pair programming
- Experience working with Product Managers to deliver products in a truly agile environment
- A passion towards a philanthropic mission
- A conviction and commitment to improve your own skills and the skills of the team
- A passion for building the best products for users

What We Use To Do Our Work:

- Ruby on Rails powers our services
- ReactJS powers our frontend user experiences
- Bootstrap 4 powers those experiences so they look and work great across devices
- CloudFront, Heroku, Postgres, Git, and MacBook Pro's to help us get product delivered to the public in a timely and efficient manner

What Will You Get:

- Competitive salary: we are funded for the long-haul and compensate accordingly
- Excellent Medical/Dental/Vision benefits-- you don’t pay a monthly premium nor deductible, we cover it 100%
- 401k benefits including a 75% match of all your contributions, vested Day 1.
- Bonus potential
- PTO/Paid Sick Days/Paid Holidays
- Work/life balance, focused on a sustainable workload
- An experience you’ll love and the knowledge you're doing better for yourself and the world
- The chance to make an impact with a highly motivated, talented, and fast-growing team

What You Will Not Experience:

We are not a large corporation with a history of legacy and bureaucracy, nor a startup wondering whether it will exist beyond the next six months. We are a fully funded organization with competitive salary, medical/dental benefits, PTO, paid holidays, and more. We have a solid development process and a talented team. We do not seek profit, so you won't compromise your values to do work that means something.

Give Lively is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
