It's crazy over here at Idealware world headquarters -- the projects just keeping coming in. As everyone tells me, that's a great problem to have, but our current team alone can't do it all. Want to join the Idealware team? We're hiring! I may be a bit biased, but I think it's a great place to work -- really smart people, the ability to really dig in and understand software, the opportunity to talk to tons of smart nonprofit people all over the country, and the ability to hang out with Jelly, the office dog. And, as of ;ast month, unlimited amounts of free coffee -- yes, we finally bought a real coffee maker.
The Intern position is located here in Portland, MAINE, but we're open to remote candidates for the others. But hey, Portland is a terrific city -- it's currently about 65 and sunny, and I was thinking of hopping out to the beach after work. Or maybe to go to one of our strangely numerous James Beard award winning restaurants. So I'd say living in Portland is a big perk of the job!
