We're Hiring!

GiveCampus is revolutionizing the way that schools raise money and engage their constituents. Our mission is to ensure that schools have the resources they need to deliver the highest-quality education possible, and that education is affordable and accessible to everyone. We’re backed by some of the world’s top investors, including Y Combinator, and we’ve achieved 5X growth over the last six months. 1-2 new schools join our network every day, and we’re expanding our team to support their efforts and continue innovating. (You can read more about what we do, and how we do it, in The Washington Post.)
We’re a small company, so we’re looking for people who are hungry and want to have a huge impact. Hustlers who are willing to learn new things and who demonstrate extraordinary resourcefulness--who don’t believe in “impossible.” Problem solvers who take initiative, challenge assumptions, and think outside the box. Team players who take responsibility and never blame others.
We’re currently searching for rock stars* to fill the positions described below. If any sound like you, please send your resume and a quick note to careers@givecampus.com. We’re also always looking to hire amazing people, so if you’re interested in what we’re building and want to be a part of it and make big things happen, please send us a note even if none of the positions below are a perfect fit.
All positions are based in either Washington, DC, or San Francisco, CA. Compensation includes competitive salary, health insurance, and a generous equity package.
*A ‘rock star’is someone with an extraordinary track record. Someone known for rolling up their sleeves and getting results--regardless of the domain, the industry, or the subject matter.
