Hi, we’re findhelp. Nice to meet you.

We’re changing the way people connect to social care programs. 

Findhelp launched 10 years ago in Austin, TX and has helped over 7 million people. We make it easy to find food, health, housing and employment programs in seconds at findhelp.org.

If our mission strikes a chord we’d love for you to keep reading. 

We are a distributed team charged with maintaining and creating the tools that power the search from beginning to end. This includes ensuring the integrity of the information people are searching for while in need, as well as making sure it is delivered in the most findable and meaningful way possible.

We are looking for a senior developer to join our team and help us take our search delivery capabilities into the future in ways that best serve our internal teams and our users looking for help.

We expect this to be a remote role and are open to hiring anywhere in the United States though a slight preference will be given to candidates in the Austin area.
