Full Time
GiveCampus is the world's leading fundraising and engagement platform for non-profit educational institutions. Trusted by 1,000+ colleges, universities, and K-12 schools, our mission is to help advance the quality, the affordability, and the accessibility of education. We received a seed investment from Y Combinator in 2015 and have been profitable and cash flow positive since 2016, which has empowered us to stay laser-focused on the value we deliver to our customers. While we operate at meaningful scale (we facilitated more than $500 million in philanthropy in 2021), we’re still small relative to the commercial and social good opportunities in front of us and every GiveCampus employee has a substantial impact on our trajectory. 

Our purpose-driven team of 60+ is located across the US: team members work from anywhere they choose. We have a beautiful 12,000sf office in Washington, DC that is available for people to use whenever they want, and we regularly organize team meet-ups, events, and retreats in various locations. We're looking to expand our team with diverse and collaborative doers who believe in our mission and the transformative power of affordable, high-quality education.

At GiveCampus, we deeply understand our users and how to build products that make their lives better. We are now looking for a driven, talented, and experienced Senior Product Designer to be our Founding Design team member and play a critical role as we build products that help schools raise more dollars from more donors.
