What We Do

Our goal is to raise lots of money for awesome causes and make giving back so fun that people want to do more of it.

CrowdRise is the largest online platform dedicated to raising money for charities and amazing causes. Our goal is to continue to create the most innovative, modern crowdfunding platform and to make giving back addicting and fun. We call it CrowdRising and so does she.

The CrowdRise culture, brand, customer service, and staff needs to be so good that customers feel compelled to tell all their friends about CrowdRise. We were named a Top 25 Global Philanthropist by Barrons and we're growing ridiculously fast.

There’s no better time to join CrowdRise than right now and we’re not just saying it.

How We Work

To work at CrowdRise, you’ve gotta have a decent sense of humor, a lot of passion, and it’d be nice if you enjoy saving the world.

We're looking for amazing people to join our squad who are passionate about charity, are ready to be in the grind and help wherever they can, and want to have more fun than they've ever had at a real job. The only rules are no sorries, no yawning and you are required to have fun.

The work environment gets no better and we're big believers that the culture creates the brand and that amazing service leads to success. We're actually not sure what that last sentence meant so if you get the job, feel free to let us know.
