Job Description:

About Blackbaud:

Leading uniquely at the intersection point of technology and social good, Blackbaud provides software, services, expertise, and data intelligence that empowers and connects people to advance the social good movement. We serve the entire social good community, which includes nonprofits, foundation, corporations, education institutions, and the individual change agents who support them. We work with over 35,000 organizations, helping them realize their goals, fund their missions, manage their operations, and develop long-lasting supporter relationships. Our customers are passionate about making the world a better place, and we---re inspired by the opportunity to help them.

About the Position:

Blackbaud/AcademicWorks is seeking a talented Software Engineer to help us keep shipping new features and entirely new products. This engineer will work most closely with our product engineering team, product management, and our CTO. Day-in and day-out, they'll be responsible for taking features from conceptualization to production (of course with design help and team feedback along the way). High-quality code, thoughtful implementation, and increasing overall team output are they key metrics of success for this role. Nearly all of your time would be spent directly implementing features from the product roadmap. That said, we believe in balancing short-term and long-term productivity, so we aim to spend about 20% of our coding time refactoring. You should find opportunities along the way to refactor existing code, implement appropriate design patterns, and leave each file better than it was when you arrived.

You're probably curious about technology!

Here are some relevant details:

  • Our application's core is built on Ruby on Rails but we are open to considering individuals with other languages and the willingness to learn Ruby.
  • We rely heavily on Postgres, Elasticsearch, Cassandra, and Redis to store our data.
  • AWS houses our entire infrastructure, which we deploy via Ansible and custom tooling, and Docker is finding its way in more often.
  • Our front-end is non-Coffeescript ES5 tested with Jasmine and styled with Sass.
  • We've recently been diving into React.
  • We focus on the right tools for the job and prefer boring technology with thoughtful abstractions whenever possible.
