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 Software Engineer role.
“What would you say, you do here?”
We pride ourselves on building a quality product. As a Software 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 gather requirements and implement the back-end infrastructure of 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. You strive to write simple and elegant code, and look for ways to build scalable, easy-to-maintain systems. Do you appreciate well-organized and beautiful data visualization? This role will be focused on making sure the data that comes out of our system is accurate, well-represented, and easy-to-understand. On the technical side, your experience in the following will also be necessary:
- PHP and MySQL
- Object-Oriented Programming
- RESTful APIs
- Ability to integrate with 3rd party APIs – we use SendGrid and Twilio to name a couple
- Github (or some other method of version control)
- 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 framework. Members of our team are effective communicators and can self-manage their time as it relates to our team’s goals.
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.
