Our mission is to help people fulfill their passion to make a difference for others. Non-profit, faith-based, and political organizations depend on Qgiv to power their fundraising through our industry leading software and growing suite of products and services. We absolutely love the work our clients do and we’re looking for someone who can help them achieve their mission through the Front-End Engineer role.
“What would you say, you do here?”
We pride ourselves on building a quality product. As a Front-End Engineer, you’ll take business requirements and leverage Voice of Customer to help us build a world-class user experience. Collaborating with other members of the Product team, you’ll implement designs and front-end code for new features and updates to our existing platform. When bugs in the system popup, you’re able to dig in, debug the issue, and find a resolution that solves the root cause - and doesn’t create new ones!
Do you love building systems and problem solving? So do we! Whether it’s overcoming a technical hurdle or finding a solution that helps users, your passion for solving problems will help you be successful in this role. On the technical side, your experience in the following will also be necessary:
- Object-Oriented Programming
- Github (or some other method of version control)
- Experience in front-end tools like Gulp would also be helpful, but not required
- Experience with PHP would also be neat
- Effective at resolving PC Load Letter issues
As a member of the Product team, you would also help us with maintaining our 2-week development cycle, keeping bugs in the system at a minimum, developing documentation for code you write, and helping us further improve and optimize our front-end framework. Members of our team are effective communicators and can self-manage their time as it relates to our team’s goals. You love it when you find an elegant solution to a problem, and you’re passionate about the code you craft.
Though our platform is easy to use, there is a lot going on under-the-hood. You will become a product expert in the first 90 days through in-house training, a little bit of experimenting, and asking lots of questions. You should be comfortable and resourceful in debugging code and troubleshooting across various browsers. Be okay with not knowing things, but strive to learn as much as possible.
What’s it like to work at Qgiv?
We are guided by our Core Values: introspection, empathy, persistence, openness, and passion. We work hard to meet deadlines and goals, but we also like to have fun. We eat cake every month to celebrate birthdays, and sharing a beer with colleagues is something you might see around the office. We strive to create a culture where individuals can grow personally and professionally, and maintain a work environment you actually look forward to every day. Most importantly, we know that at the end of the day our software helps make the world just a little bit better.
