Back End Developer

| Colorado Springs

A lot of places will use the quote "work hard, play hard" but here at Church Community Builder we really believe the best life is one that has balance. We are going to challenge you to take the bull by the horns each and every day as demonstrated in the work you create, as well as, the play you choose to join in. That’s why we do things like staff retreats, company meals, and many other opportunities to build lasting relationships. Want to know what the CEO is thinking? You can ask him in a weekly Q&A. When you need a break from, or inspiration for, creating exciting software and providing wickedly mind-blowing support, you can challenge a team member at ping pong or foosball, or rally a group to participate in a smashing game of Spike Ball. We work hard to create the culture that feeds innovation with expectations of high-performance through meaningful work. We are very serious about our software because of the lives we believe it could impact. Oh, and profit sharing is really nice too. This is why we look for people who love solving problems, love to engage in possibilities, and are hungry for results. If you have these qualities and are passionate about changing the world, we'd love to meet you!

An Insider's view of Church Community Builder

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We strive for work-life harmony by challenging ourselves to give it our ALL whether creating product, interacting with customers, or designing new campaigns. We also want people to go home for dinner, use their PTO, and take time to minister to others in need. We desire that everyone be fulfilled in all that they are, do, and aspire to be.

Sondra

Head of People Operations

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

This company is full of great people and opportunity! I started on the facilities/operations team, moved into software development, and now work on the Software and Technology Leadership Team. This is a great place to work!

Ken

Software and Technology Leadership Team

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We give our developers time every week for self-directed learning. That's time to sharpen skills on tools we use or to reach out beyond our stack and learn new frameworks, languages, tools, and technologies. Not only does that keep developers learning, but it gives us more tools in our toolbox as we come up with customer solutions.
