Are you passionate about designing and coding easy-to-use websites? Do you thrive in an environment where you can deploy code to production every day? Do you want to work on a site that actually makes an impact on people's lives?
GlobalGiving.org, an online marketplace for international grassroots charities, is looking for a Software Engineer for Good to join our small team of developers.
You will be responsible for coding, designing, and maintaining features on our site that inform, inspire, thrill, and connect our users. You'll take charge of new projects and features and see them all the way from a few loosely defined requirements to interface design, implementation, launch, and maintenance.
Although we're small, we've got our fingers in a lot of cookie jars. You'll have the opportunity to work with a lot of cutting edge technologies and make your great ideas a reality. Day-to-day tasks include Java and web programming, user interface design, being awesome, project management, bug fixing and website hygene, web analytics, customer service, and some limited server/database/back office administration.
You'll be expected to bring your "A game" and help us improve ours. We're a team that thrives on peer learning. We hope that you'll share your creative passion with the team and spread it over the nooks and crannies that is the English muffin of GlobalGiving.
Benefits include flexible work hours, a family-friendly culture, telecommuting one day a week, a fully loaded MacBook Pro with secondary monitor, a convenient downtown DC location, and a meaningful job where you can go home at night and say, "Today, my work helped rescue 97 girls from bonded labor in Nepal." (One of many true stories.) And don't worry - we've also got the usual benefits like health care, dental/vision, commuter benefits, 401K, and paid vacation.
This is a full time position in Washington, D.C. Salary range will depend on skill and experience. Candidates must be eligible to work in the United States.
