  • 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: This role is budgeted between $125,000 - $135,000 per year plus benefits.
  • Excellent Medical/Dental/Vision benefits-- you don’t pay a monthly premium nor deductible, we cover it 100%

  • 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.
