Sr. Software Developer

Position at Community Brands

 

Community Brands is a software company that helps organizations achieve social good. Through our technology, we help more than 100,000 associations, nonprofits, schools, faith-based organizations, and partners grow stronger and achieve their missions. Like our clients, our nearly 2,000 employees strive to improve the world in which they live, and we believe that technology plays an important role in that. We are techies and volunteers who dream big and are motivated by more than just a cool job (though that’s a great perk we offer too). The Community Brands culture is one where employees can pursue this passion as part of their profession, and we’re looking for great employees to join us!

We are looking for a Software Developer that wants to build the world’s best mobile fundraising platform.

GiveSmart has helped nonprofits raise over $300M in our 5 years of existence, but we’re not stopping there. Our new Software Developer will be tasked with developing the next generation of GiveSmart’s platform to improve the experience of giving and raise more for our charity partners.

Our agile development process is designed to help our Software Developers succeed in writing elegant code and creating automated tests that validate requirements and avoid regression.

Everyone at GiveSmart is focused on running awesome events. In that spirit, our Software Developers enjoy working one event per quarter to experience the software they work on firsthand, and see how their work has a positive impact on the great causes our charity partners support.

This is a unique opportunity to join a successful and growing tech company with a surprisingly small team of developers. Our new Software Developer will be expected to play a big role in contributing to the technology that is at the core of our company.

An Insider's view of GiveSmart by Community Brands

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work-life balance at Community Brands is a priority for productivity! While teams that work off hours (tech support and event staff) have balance time to make up for the evenings and weekends, time management and blocking off time for yourself is a must.

Amanda

Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-department meeting and collaboration is SO important to us because we all come to work with a common goal. We have strategy meetings at a high level, but also have open communication through our internal chat channels where teams bounce ideas off each other. Video chat is a must with our other offices!

Erin

Director, Client Services

What makes someone successful on your team?

The most successful team members are those who proactively find areas where we can help our clients succeed in their goals, and those who have the willingness to adapt positively to the ever-changing world, are those that in turn reach and exceed their goals.

Cara

Senior Account Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The software team at Community Brands does not believe in being shackled to our computers. We all regularly work events to get firsthand experience of our product in action. This informs our work in every way, from tiny enhancements that improve the donor experience, to big initiatives that deliver innovative solutions to our clients.

John

Principal Software Engineer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Working at Community Brands taught me that not all 9-5 jobs have to be boring! The office vibe is overall relaxed and collaborative. Different teams constantly interact with one another to work on a variety of projects which makes the environment fun, but still professional!
