Change.org is the world’s largest petition platform, empowering more than 75 million users to win incredible and inspiring victories on the issues they care about. We’re an innovative business – a certified “B Corp” – combining the structure of a business with a powerful sense of mission that drives our work. Over 25 million users have signed winning petitions, including strengthening hate crimes legislation in South Africa; fighting corruption in Indonesia, Italy, and Brazil; ending the ban on gay Boy Scouts in the United States, and big wins for women’s rights in India. And we’re just getting started. We love serving our incredible users, and we love our staff too. We show it with very competitive salaries, five weeks of vacation, robust maternity and parental leave, an amazing culture, free language training (if you want it), and a high impact, low-ego team that can’t wait to learn from you and teach you what they know.


Here's what you'll do as part of our team:

  • be part of a small, close-knit team

  • develop in a Mac OS X environment
  • work in an agile environment (TDD, pairing, short release cycles)
  • work closely with our designers to implement their interaction designs in code, in a fast-feedback, iterative fashion
  • contribute to our bottom line through rigorous analytics and A/B testing
  • proactively refactor the codebase to improve its quality and performance
  • use your skills to make the world better

And here are the skills & experience we hope you have:

  • deep experience of frontend technologies (JavaScript, HTML, CSS, templating systems, Node.js, Backbone) in the context of a large consumer-facing web sites
  • write test-driven JavaScript using industry-standard tools and frameworks
  • rewritten code to help yourself sleep better at night
  • ability to navigate and grok an existing, large code base
  • proficiency with Git and Unix command line
