Who are we?
Qgiv is a fast-growing technology company with a history of delivering innovative solutions that empower nonprofit organizations and their fundraising programs. Qgivers are active learners and collaborators, motivated by the work our customers do and the impact they’re making on the world.
We’re guided by our core values: empathy, introspection, honesty + integrity, persistence, openness, respect, and passion. We work hard to meet deadlines and goals, but we also take time to celebrate and have fun! In the office, we enjoy game nights, potlucks, costumes, office decorating competitions, a monthly birthday cake, and more free snacks and beverages than should be allowed. For those remote, we stay connected through video and Slack, weekly coffee talks, and virtual Town Hall meetings.
By joining the team, you’ll have the support and encouragement to do remarkable things every day. We face challenges together and we win together. And together, we deliver world-class solutions that transform the way our nonprofit customers fundraise so that they can have a greater impact on the world around us.
About the Opportunity:
As a Software Engineer on the Fundraising team, you’ll take business requirements and leverage Voice of Customer to help us build a world-class user experience.
Is a redesign of one of our systems on deck? You’ll be working with a team of Back-end and Front-end engineers to devise API endpoints that the front-end code can fetch and post data to. You will also be taking business requirements and turning them into intricately crafted back-end code. You will be able to provide your input and ideas on how to architect and structure the new system so that it becomes clean, scalable, and maintainable code.
Did a bug pop in the system? You will be able to dig in, debug the issue, and find a resolution that solves the root cause - and doesn’t create new ones!
Are we building a new feature or adding an enhancement for an existing product? You will help us scope the task in order to translate it into technical requirements. You will then provide a code solution that meets such requirements and stays within scope. You are able to work within already established systems/architecture, trace existing code and follow code and naming conventions. When working with co-workers outside of your department on a specific task, you are able to explain complex technical concepts in a non-technical way that they can understand.
Is new back-end code ready to be merged into the codebase? You will help code review your peer’s back-end code. You will be looking for clean, readable, and scalable code and providing any necessary suggestions to ensure that the code is top quality and meets all established standards.
What does success look like? * Being able to quickly learn the system, structure, and framework.
