What it is like to work here
Each day is unlike any other; working from home, working with others of a like mind, on projects that make a difference in the lives of our communities. If you want to work in an atmosphere that is positive, encouraging, inclusive, and open minded then Freeform is the place for you. We work from home, if you haven’t done so before check out our helpful hints from our team.
If working in the sector, with open source technology, from the comfort of your own home isn’t enough to persuade you to work for Freeform; we asked our team to provide a few more thoughts (rather than make it up) on why they choose to work for Freeform:
- “I work with people I am happy to call my friends”,
- “Our clients are great”
- “The lunch options are great, once you get used to making whatever you want”.
- “I learn new things every day, I love that about my work at Freeform. If you can think of a better way to do something, it is welcomed. There is a real commitment to learning”
- “The commitment to the nonprofit sector is key; helping organizations use technology to do important work is satisfying.”
Passionate about working in the intersection of technology and the nonprofit sectors.
- A volunteer in your spare time and passionately support causes.
We are always looking for strong individuals who share our desire to help the sector, whether it be full stack developers, support and maintenance specialists, project managers.
Some of the technology we work with:
Among the key open-source web applications we work with are Drupal, CiviCRM, WordPress, and Backdrop.
While we typically work with open-source solutions for our clients, we also take into account the best solution for them that reflects the tradeoff between cost, functionality and timeliness.
Some of the perks of working with us
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is key to our strength
At Freeform you are welcome regardless of your race, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability. Diversity is key to our strength. Because we all work from home offices, people with disabilities are not faced with any additional obstacles or barriers to working.
We offer comprehensive benefits
...including health insurance (dental, prescription drugs, etc), long term disability insurance, and life insurance.
We support a healthy work life balance
Your commitment to Freeform is for a number of hours each week. We ask that you attend during core hours so you can communicate with your team and clients, but if you are an early bird or a night owl, leverage your own natural rhythms: ”I can pick my kids up from school, or take them to an appointment — I save a lot of time and money not having to commute."
We have an “open door” policy to encourage innovation and transparency.
A flat organizational structure means you can comfortably provide feedback at any time. We have an “open door” policy to encourage innovation and transparency, however, given that we don’t really have an office or any real doors, it actually means that if you want to talk to someone, talk to them. “There are opportunities to take initiative — if you can think of a better way to do something, it is welcomed.”
