Software Engineer

Edmond, OK /
Digital Technology – Open Network /
The Software Engineer will develop software and services to equip churches and ministries worldwide with tools and resources that accelerate their ministry impact.

You’ve got skills. You’re motivated. You’ve got a passion to see people come to know Christ. All you’ve been missing is a place to put all of it together. God brings people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences here, but He does it because we all have one thing in common: We won’t stop until every person on this Earth knows the love of Jesus. Ministry might not have been the first stop on your career road map, but if you’ve been praying to put your skills to work alongside a team of Kingdom-minded, sold-out, on-fire believers, we’ve got good news. You’re on the right path.

The Life.Church Open Network Team is looking for a Software Engineer to help develop software and services that equip churches worldwide with free resources to help them accelerate their ministry impact. The ideal candidate is creative and ready to help forge new paths as part of a team focused on serving the global Church with excellent, modern digital tools and resources. Do you want to use your coding skills on products which every month directly benefit thousands of churches, and millions of people? Then keep reading to see if this role is a perfect fit for you!
