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. 

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to enjoy coming to work everyday? Making an Impact with every keystroke? How about smacking tennis balls with Serena Williams on a Tuesday at lunch? Okay technically that third one we can't make happen but she is an early investor in ShoppingGives and two out of three isn't bad!

We are an anti-***hole impact driven organization that thrives on a collaborative, open communicative and hyper transparent environment. How many more months/years are you going to spend working for organizations that think diversity is a four letter word. At ShoppingGives we don't believe in a glass ceiling since we are a startup and we haven’t gotten around to building one yet!

The bottom line at the top - we make the world a better place with the tools we build. Would you like to join us and help by building platforms that scale and enable brands and consumers to create Impact with every action

Do you...?

  • Want to contribute and have a voice at the company that just beat Google and Adobe for “Best Emerging Technology” at the 2021 Codie Awards?
  • Desire to use your brilliant program management skills to implement not just good products but products that do good?
  • Thrive in environments where accountability is prioritized and would love to own the output for a whole team?
  • Want to work in an environment where you talk and problem solve with other teams?
  • Invest in tomorrow, today, by fixing tomorrow’s problems, yesterday?

If you answered yes to those questions - this might be the role for you. 

Let's be transparent: This job isn't for everyone.

  • Our mission drives our team to do good.
  • We work hard and deliver fast - we have lots of customers to keep on our platform.
  • Willy Wonka doesn’t work here - so we don’t sugarcoat.
  • Mistakes are forgivable, and inactivity is not. 
  • We're accountable to you because you'll be accountable to us. 
  • We understand that to grow our business. We must develop our people - so we're looking for learners, teachers, and in this instance, one talented Technical Program/Project Manager. Is that you?

An Insider's view of ShoppingGives

How does your team reward individual success?

Every Monday we give our game bull (like a game ball) to an employee who had an accomplishment and "grabbed the bull by its horns" the past week. We do this to share our triumphs and show our appreciation for our peer's dedication and hard work, and it's a great opportunity to share each other's accomplishments across the entire team.
