MovingWorlds is a Fast Company World-Changing Idea Honoree and Escape the City’s best employer to “escape to”. Most importantly, our work is helping create a more sustainable and equitable economy by connecting people that work in social impact to the knowledge, experiences, and connections they need to scale world-changing ideas. In partnership with some of the most iconic brands of our time, we are helping social enterprises across over 100 countries grow more sustainably, and in the process, helping some of the biggest companies in the world improve their sustainability and equity. We invite you to join us!
We operate a portfolio of programs for individuals, corporations, and capacity-building organizations. While our experteering platform was launched nearly a decade ago and remains in operation, our growth is being driven through our MovingWorlds Institute Global Fellowship, our TRANSFORM Support Hub, as well as through corporate-sponsored programs with companies like Microsoft, SAP, PayPal, Kering, and more.
Help MovingWorlds accelerate its growth and impact by improving, designing, and building technology needed to deliver world-positive programs – while also serving as a core member of our engineering team.
We are looking for someone that loves building software for the web and wants to use these skills to help MovingWorlds grow, improve, and ultimately, be more impactful. Beyond engineering, we are also looking for someone that is passionate about being part of a great team, providing peer coaching, and supporting / co-leading scrum processes.
Working directly with our Head of Engineering, your primary tasks will include:
Nice to have:
In your first 100 days, you can expect to:
As time goes on, we expect this role to continue to evolve with you and the company’s growth.
We are looking for a senior full stack engineer with a proven understanding of core computer science concepts, as well as someone that can be an effective peer coach and support SCRUM processes.
Currently, MovingWorlds uses the following suite of tools. While we don’t expect you to have experience with them all, previous experience in website coding frameworks and API integration is a must:
Core platform technology
Integrated web apps/services
Workflow automation and low-code tools
Data Management and analysis
Planning and Supporting technology
Our ideal candidate will have experience with some of these (or similar) tools/frameworks. More important, however, is a strong desire to learn and to be an individual contributor in a very central/important role.
MovingWorlds is a global, virtual team with presence in the USA, UK, Brazil, and India. Ideally you will be in one of these locations, but you can work from anywhere provided you overlap with our working time zones.
We will prioritize candidates that are based in EST time zone. Our current clients are as far west as Seattle and as far East as India. Your home base should be between those locations for the optimal working hours.
Our team is international with team members working from four continents and a diverse set of skills. While we pride ourselves on supporting a very diverse community, we are also increasing our investment and education for our own team, as well as building a team that is more representative of the diverse community we serve. As of 2022, we have implemented new policies, including attempting to eliminate bias out of our hiring process. This is done with:
MovingWorlds is a small team that is funding its growth on revenues instead of raising capital in order to stay committed to its impact and keep equity for employees. MovingWorlds is committed to fair and equitable pay across its global team, and it uses a pro-rata adjustment calculator so that every team member is paid at an equal level compared to published market data for their roles, and based on the cost of living in their cities.
We are also looking for a mission-aligned person and will provide a very generous equity package, equal to 1% of the company.
Please note that we know this is a below-market salary, and our every intent is to grow to market rates. We grew 60% last year, are tracking for 60% growth again this year, and have high aspirations for next year, too. Now is a really exciting time to be joining our team and we hope to have us all to market-level salaries by 2024. All team members received a raise in 2020 and 2021 and 2022 of double-digit percent, and we expect this to continue. More information about salary, as well as the MovingWorlds approach to equal and fair pay, will be shared early in the process.
We’re growing as an organization, but we stay focused on making sure we care for ourselves and each other, too. Any of our new team members will tell you that we’re different… open, vulnerable, transparent, collaborative, very growth-minded, and a little goofy. Here are a few more tangible benefits of joining our one-of-a-kind team:
As a “social purpose corporation” (aka Benefit Corporation) we exist to create positive social and environmental impact alongside profit. We do this work to help accelerate the progress of a more impactful, global social enterprise movement that employs more people in world-positive jobs. We absolutely look for mission alignment from all our team members.
