Working With Us

- Sustainability is everything. We are a bootstrapped company that has taken $0 dollars in investment money. We make our decisions as a team and ensure only those in the trenches with us impact our future.
- Global online payments excites us. We are deeply interested in the movement of money online and the accompanying technology. Conversion funnels, donor engagement, and attrition models are things we think deeply about.
- Move fast, but don’t break things. We are aggressive with our development schedules and understand the value of being able to move quickly. However, we are processing millions of dollars for charities all over the world, so shipping bug-free software is a must.
- Cross-pollination is the key to creating productive people. We believe that in all aspects of life the more you experience and learn the better person you’ll become.
