Raisely powers online fundraising for ambitious charities across the world. We’re a mission-driven remote team, spread across 5 countries and 7 cities.
We’re growing rapidly, but we’re not just any high-growth startup. Here you’ll have the flexibility of working from wherever you’re happy, supported by a passionate, talented team. You’ll use your skills to help charities of all sizes raise money to fund their important work, all while building a well-balanced company that puts values first.
If you’re excited about the challenge of a high-growth startup, and want your work to have a huge impact on the world, then we hope you’ll consider working with us.
We’re Raisely! We help charities raise money online. Our platform helps charities build fundraising campaigns, run donation appeals, and nurture their supporters. We make it easy to get started and scale-up, without needing technical help.
We started Raisely because charities have been underserved by technology for too long. We set out to change that, and so far we’ve helped raise over $100m.
We’re a team of 13-turning-20 as we rapidly grow our company (and impact). With your help, we’re hoping to raise $1bn in the next few years and rapidly scale out, supporting charities small and large in countries across the world.
Oh and one more thing. We walk this impact talk. We’re a proud B-corp, and purpose is baked into our constitution. We are carbon neutral, and we’re starting our anti-racism journey to ensure we’re actively undoing centuries of systemic racism.
Raisely is a unique product with many technical hurdles. At a glance:
We can promise you a team full of engineers and designers who believe in the purpose of our work, and are always striving to improve our product, and our craft. If the scope of Raisely excites you, and you share a desire for purposeful work, we want to hear from you.

We particularly encourage Indigenous Australians, First Nations, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disability, or people without the economic advantage of higher education, to apply for our roles.*
You're passionate about solving problems with code
You have high technical competence. You're a capable engineer, you produce high quality code and consider the various permutations and edge-cases.
You're a manager-of-one
You don't need a manager to check in and direct your workflow, you'd prefer to work to broad expectations and manage your own time within that framework. You can identify when you need a hand, and won't hesitate to ask.
You see your work through to production
You finish what you start. You don't push up a PR and call it a day. You're happy to adjust that code in response to feedback, and prompt the team to help you see that code through to production.
You ship code
You understand that there's a balance between writing perfect code and actually shipping code. You can identify the right areas to persist and polish and the right areas to just get the job done.
You give a damn
You’re not comfortable with the status quo. You’re not in this for a quick dollar; you think the world needs to be better and that technology will get us there.
Plus some key requirements we'll need
You spend nearly 2000 hours of your life at work, each year. That’s a huge commitment, so we can promise that every hour you’re spending with Raisely, you’re making the world a better place. Pretty great perk, hey?
Plus, the more you help us grow, the bigger our impact gets. And by that we’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars big.
Working at Raisely is unique. If you have a great idea, we’ll help you make it happen. You’ll play a pivotal role with an awesome team at a crucial point in the history of our fast-growing company.
