Are you a big picture systems thinker? Do you feel energized by ensuring that tech products are the highest quality possible? Do you want to learn more how to leverage tech for good, be on the cutting edge of economic justice work, have a good laugh, brainstorm a lot, get frustrated sometimes but inspired frequently, and be on the right side of history?

MAF is looking for a Software Quality Assurance Engineer who wants an opportunity to join an organization that sits at the forefront of economic justice work and leads with innovative and big ideas. From day one you’ll be challenged by exciting projects, working alongside the best and brightest, and enjoying an amicable work environment.

Our story: Mission Asset Fund (MAF) is a groundbreaking non-profit on a mission to create a fair financial marketplace for hardworking families. We’re a recognized nationwide leader in developing innovative and successful asset-building strategies. A hybrid between a tech start-up and a nonprofit, MAF is a great place to work for both nonprofit or for-profit professionals who are interested in tech for social good.

As MAF grows and expands its areas of work, we need a passionate and proactive Software QA Engineer that can help meet all of our release targets . This is a great opportunity for someone who wants not just a job, but also an opportunity to build the financial power in communities of color and be part of a community and culture that is committed to social good.  

An awesome place to work: We’re right in the Mission District in San Francisco. It’s awesome here, with diverse restaurants, bars, and shops. We’ve got great team outings (fighting zombies, putt putt and bowling to name a few). And the team is ridiculously dedicated to the mission and fun to work with. As a nonprofit and tech startup, we attract people who like to jump in with both feet and who aren’t afraid of learning how to do better. With an open office environment, collaboration and teamwork are more than just values - they’re a way of life. Hailing from many different cultural and professional backgrounds, we are drawn together by a passion for embracing technology and creativity to make the world a better place for hardworking families.
