Our mission

Hi, future teammate!

We are a dedicated group of data nerds inspired by the extraordinary things that can happen when people come together as a community.

We partner with organizations that see community building as a core part of their work. Alongside them we build customized (and beautiful) data tools and strategies to make their work easier and more impactful.

Technological change can be nerve-wracking and that’s why we prioritize the people, culture and long-term success of our community builders. We love to dive deep into new technologies and we surface the best to share with our people.

Your role

We tried to make the title as literal as possible. You will engineer solutions for our clients - both reactively and proactively.

  • Build A+ features and fixes in Salesforce for our clients, delivered on time and with long-term viability in mind.
  • Craft creative solutions to help clients increase their impact and efficiency.
  • Respond to client support requests with grace and speed. For some clients on a support retainer contract, you will be their first point of contact when they need something. For others, you'll be tasked specific needs as they arise for other teammates.
  • Train client staff on the Salesforce features you build, both in person and virtually.
  • Collaborate with teammates to configure Salesforce to meet (and exceed) client needs.
  • Integrate Salesforce with third-party tools, including email marketing tools, online forms, and payment processors.
  • Fuel your professional development by constantly learning more about the software we use, the nonprofit field, and yourself on a personal level. We'll make sure you have the resources to advance on all three of those levels.

Your experience

  • 1+ years experience with Salesforce or a similar relational database.
  • 1+ years experience with nonprofits, either on a professional or volunteer level.
  • Ability (and excitement) to travel to client offices (mostly in NYC, sometimes a train or plane flight away).
  • Ability (and excitement) to work out of our WeWork office in Brooklyn or Denver, or remotely via frequent video conferencing.
