Life, Work, and the Pursuit of Happiness

Do Good. Work Hard. Have Fun...Get Paid.
We Are Looking for a Few Great People.
Interested? Send us an email at jobs@charityblossom.org.

Life is short. You should live it to the fullest. You expect a lot from your job and career because you do great work. You are passionate about what you do and are in high demand because you are the best of the best. So, you can be picky. You want to work at a great place!

However, sometimes you want even more; a rewarding and fulfilling life where you can make an even greater impact on your local community and beyond. Is it possible to blend “doing good” with a great job? Perhaps you’ve considered working or volunteering at a nonprofit. Unfortunately, these kinds of opportunities are difficult to accept because either they don’t pay very well or the work environment (i.e. the mix of technical work and altruistic contribution) of a nonprofit just wasn’t quite right.

At Charity Blossom, we think differently. You can have it all—competitive salary, benefits, and stock options. Plus you are doing good and giving back to your community. Oh, and having fun.

And, you believe in the startup experience. A small team can do more than a large company. You want to disrupt the status quo. You want to roll up your sleeves and get stuff done. And, last but not least, you live the dream of being amply rewarded financially because you believe your stock options will be worth something (a lot!).

Come join us on our mission. We’re looking for a few great people that want to have fun, work hard, and do good. Send us an email at jobs@charityblossom.org and help change the world!

About Charity Blossom

Charity Blossom helps nonprofits. "A billion for a million" -- our goal is to help a million nonprofits raise a billion dollars a year. In the United States, we donate $300 billion to nonprofits. $100 billion is given through "micro-donations" of $5-$10,000. However, this money flows really inefficiently. Only 23 cents of every dollar make it nonprofit program services. And, only 4% of this happens on line. Further, fundraising is the #1 pain point for most nonprofits – they don’t have the time, resources, or expertise to do this effectively.

At Charity Blossom, we are out to transform the charitable giving paradigm. Utilizing the Internet, social media, and search, Charity Blossom disrupts this industry. Our focus is on the nonprofits - - we provide them with the platform to raise awareness for their cause, process donations, get new donors, and engage existing donors. We make fundraising easier and more efficient.
