Growth with a Purpose
ShoppingGives began in 2015 as an organization to do good and make an impact. We build products to address the expectation for change. We exist to create impact on every purchase, and we believe that micro-actions lead to macro impact. Every day we help retailers, no matter how large or small, give back to the causes that their customers are passionate about. Through everyday purchases, we get to watch the world around us become better one transaction at a time, and we think that’s pretty incredible. Our impact is enormous and why we are growing with a purpose. We know it’s best to Invest in Tomorrow, Today. That means we don’t skip any steps while planning or default to the solutions we are comfortable with - we research tomorrow's leading technologies and how they can benefit our products.
The bottom line at the top - we make the world a better place with the tools we build. Would you like to help us by making sure our customer's technology uses our technology to the fullest and create Impact every day?
- Want to use your brilliant engineering skills to implement not just good products but products that do good?
- Would you love to grow your career by creating and managing a collaborative work environment with our account team and own the technical end of sales conversations?
- Want to write solutions for hairy integration challenges and then make them repeatable?
- Do you see into the future to understand what features to build now for our yet unseen integrations?
- Serve our technology customers quicker than Taco Bell - and without the heartburn?
- Smash a bug faster than a Porsche on the Autobahn?
- Invest in tomorrow, today, by enabling our sales team to cover the basics of integrations and keep up-skilling them?
