About Keela:
Keela is on a mission to empower every social impact organization around the world with technology. We believe that access to powerful tools will change how nonprofits fundamentally work. We build and support software that we designed specifically for the needs of non-profit organizations. We are a certified B-Corp* (read the definition below, it’s pretty awesome). Our team is passionate about diversity and inclusion — something that we believe is a source of deep strength in our growing company. We are a team of builders and leaders truly dedicated to building a globally impactful, sustainable, and ethical business.

We are a close-knit team of around 25 and are growing. Our office is in the heart of downtown Vancouver. We love to have fun, yes, but we don’t spend our days playing foosball and lounging around the office, we are passionately driven to hit targets, help customers, and reach our next milestone. We are driven by the understanding that every non-profit that adopts Keela can do more good in this world, help more people and drive more positive impact, that is what motivates us every day. We love what we do, we are supported in our efforts, and guided to reach new personal bests. Together we make up a culture defined by our empathy for others, our freedom to be creative, our mettle in the face of a challenge, and our hustle and hard work when it’s required; all if this is strengthened by our diversity in style, approach, and background. We are bringing useful, beautifully designed and feature-rich software to serve the needs of the nonprofit sector. We are enabling those dedicated to doing good… to do more good.

Oh and we have a friendly, adorable, cuddle loving office dog. So well…. Must love dogs?

*Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit.

This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good.
