Job Requisition: Director of Accounting and Payments

Overview

AidKit, a fast-growing social impact startup that helps nonprofits and governments deliver cash with dignity, is seeking a Director of Accounting and Payments to join our team.

About AidKit

AidKit is the engine that nonprofits and governments trust to operate cash assistance programs. We replace convoluted workflows of glued-together CRMs, spreadsheets, surveys, forms, bank portals, and human tedium with one unified platform to allow organizations to operate more efficiently and get dollars directly into the hands of people who need it most.

AidKit grew out of a need to distribute funds that we raised to support undocumented workers in Colorado during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. We built efficient, scalable systems to manage programs and distribute funds with equity and dignity.

“I lost my job due to COVID and couldn’t get unemployment. I didn’t ever think I would be able to receive this kind of help. Receiving this grant made me feel seen, that I mattered. That finally, for the first time, I was recognized in this country.” - Left Behind Workers Fund grantee

Our philanthropic roots have grown into a startup and we now provide the technology backbone for some of the nation's largest direct cash programs. We specialize in serving a wide variety of populations, including:

  • Undocumented Individuals
  • Unhoused People
  • Unlicensed Child Care Providers
  • Refugees
  • Survivors of Domestic Violence
  • People with Disabilities
  • Low-Income Families

We’ve helped our partners distribute over $227M to more than 120,000 individuals and families. We are growing rapidly and the opportunity for impact ahead is immense. We are supporting the largest Guaranteed Basic Income and direct cash assistance programs in the United States and seeing new and exciting ways to support people living in poverty with dignified aid every day.
