Change.org is the world's largest technology platform for social change. Our goal is to empower people everywhere to start campaigns around the issues they care about, mobilize others, and work with decision makers to drive solutions. We’re also an innovative business – a "social enterprise” and a certified B Corporation, with a business model designed to support positive social impact (more about B Corps: www.bcorporation.net). Over 30 million users have signed winning petitions, including strengthening hate crime 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. Here’s a small snapshot of what was changed last year: www.change.org/2014 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.

  • work for a profitable company that is making the world better
  • build and scale our core services used by people all over the world
  • work in all layers of the web stack, from javascript to linux configuration
  • create tools that turn abstract ideas into something visual

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

  • properly size-up a situation to understand the potential risk versus gain
  • put in place tools to ensure the reliability, availability and serviceability of a service
  • identify and analyze issues across the entire stack
  • be able to learn new skills quickly as the need arises
