Our Mission: To connect all people in need and the programs that serve them (with dignity and ease).
Aunt Bertha picks up where Uncle Sam leaves off by making it easy to find and apply for government and charitable social service programs. By organizing the world's human service program information, we make it easy for people in need and the people who help them to find help in seconds on https://findhelp.org.
We are looking for people who are driven to make the world a drastically better place and want to join our small group of thoughtful, committed citizens because they believe, as Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Our employees are aligned around this mission. That's why it is a requirement of our application process that you include a cover letter detailing how Aunt Bertha’s mission speaks to you.
Please note: If our mission doesn't strike a chord with you that is OK. But please consider not applying. We are seeking people who come on fire after learning about what we do.
We are a rapidly growing Software Engineering organization building a platform that connects people in need, helpers, and services. Every day, people in communities across the country are searching for assistance and connecting to services using the software we build.
We are seeking an accomplished executive leader with expertise in engineering, operations, development, and startup environments. The VP of Engineering will lead the vision, design, and development of our SaaS platform that connects people in need with those that can help them. The position will report directly to our CEO and manage a growing team of developers, cloud infrastructure engineers, and Scrum Masters. The goal of the VP of Engineering is to ensure that products are developed in a timely and predictable manner in a fast-moving, entrepreneurial environment.
