About Us & Why We're Hiring

We're changing the way people connect to social care programs.

Findhelp launched over 10 years ago in Austin, TX and has helped over 7 million people find food, health, housing, and employment programs in seconds at findhelp.org

We're powered by tech, driven to do good, and looking for passionate people to join our team. Our mission is to connect all people in need and the programs that serve them (with dignity and ease).

If our mission strikes a chord, we'd love for you to keep reading.

The Team
We are a distributed team charged with maintaining and developing new features to serve our community of individuals and healthcare and social work professionals.

We are looking for multiple senior developers to help grow our platform into the fabric that stitches together our fabric of social-services nationwide.

This is a remote role and open to anyone within the United States (all work must be done in the US), though a slight preference will be given to candidates in the Austin area.

Requirements

    • 5+ years working as a professional software developer 
    • We realize that years of experience are not everything. Still, we need someone who has substantial experience with a range of products and working conditions for this role.
    • Comfortable working independently in a complex Python codebase 
    • You should not have any issues taking ownership of code and working toward its gradual improvement.
    • Excellent technical writing and communication skills 
    • We are a distributed team which makes technical writing extra important. We work on improving our technical writing and how it can best communicate complex concepts and workflows. You should be able to join the discussion out of the gate.
    • Demonstrated history working on a team
    • You will never have to go off & work by yourself for a sprint. Talking about your preferences and experiences with pair programming, code reviews, mentoring, and relationship building within a technical team should come naturally.

Strongly Preferred Skills

    • Experience transitioning applications to high test coverage
    • An interest in mentoring and fostering individual growth
    • Good understanding of SQL and non-relational databases
    • Experience designing cloud-first services, ideally on GCP

Nice-to-Have

    • Strong Javascript and ReactJs experience
    • Understanding of functional programming techniques
    • Experience checking and improving application security
    • Understanding of web performance strategies and metrics
    • Experience working with Elasticsearch
    • Experience with moving to microservices
    • Solid understanding of user experience and accessibility concerns
    • Experience working on applications that take extra steps to protect PHI and PII
We value being together 
We believe being together enables stronger relationships, collaboration, and culture.
You can expect to be in-office if you’re applying in cities we currently have offices (Austin, TX and Denver, CO). 

We’re building a diverse, inclusive team
 
You’re welcome here. We want to help connect everyone to the help they need. So we want to build a company that represents your community.
 
But talk is cheap. We like action. Here are a few things that show we mean business.
