Celebrate With Us
on Nov 9, 2012 | hide
On Wednesday of this week, the Amicus (YC S12) team was celebrating. Why? Because Amicus was used to power pro-equality outreach efforts in all four states that had marriage equality measures on the ballot. Amicus enabled tens of thousands of conversations between supporters of equality and their friends, and at the end of the night this helped carry the day.

We believe that if you empower people to organize around causes they care about, you can fundamentally reshape civil society.

We love what we do both because we're tackling a huge market opportunity (nonprofits spent $60B on fundraising last year) and because we get to make a tangible difference in the lives of millions.

We're looking to hire a full-stack engineer.

Things we're looking for:

+ Experience working with systems at scale (bonus points for AWS)

+ Experience with service oriented architectures

+ Passion for working with large datasets in realtime

+ Deep desire to use your powers to create social good

What Amicus offers:

+ Competitive salary and significant equity in a well-funded company

+ A passionate, brilliant engineering team that laughs out loud together multiple times a day

+ Excellent benefits -- gym membership, health, dental, unlimited amazon budget

+ A chance to feel great about what you do

To apply, send us an email at jobs@amicushq.com. Send one or more of: your resume, github, linkedin, stack overflow, side projects, etc. The more the merrier.

Our current stack includes Mongo, Rails, JRuby, and Backbone. We're based in New York City. You must be local or willing to relocate.
