We are a social network designed specifically for volunteers and nonprofit organizations. For volunteers, Givegab is a great way to connect with groups and causes that match your skills and passions, to volunteer with friends and make new friends with similar interests, and to create volunteer portfolios that celebrate your individual and group contributions. For nonprofit groups, Givegab can help you recruit the volunteers with the abilities and commitment you’re looking for, to manage current volunteers, events, and ongoing programs, and to automatically recognize, reward and track accomplishments.
We are a small and rapidly growing tech startup that is looking to make a difference in the world in the social technology market. We take great pride in developing awesome software that meets the needs of our customers and are looking for ambitious software engineer interns to join our team! To succeed at GiveGab, you should be willing to work hard and have fun at the same time. We are an agile shop – building, deploying, breaking, and fixing at a rapid pace. We use lightweight, yet structurally disciplined software development methodologies and average a new production release once every 1-2 weeks.
We need your creativity and intelligence to continue making our vision successful!
