Meet the EveryAction Team

February 28, 2018  |  EveryAction Team

At EveryAction we’re on a mission to provide nonprofits with best-in-class fundraising, engagement, and advocacy tools, but we like to think that we’re a pretty fun place to work, too.

We strive to promote a healthy work life balance. That’s why our team hosts things like social fridays, team yoga classes, company wide bake-offs, and other activities to de-stress. Sure, sometimes there’s a crunch to release something, or a customer support ticket that requires extra attention — but those cases are few and far between. Even email is kept to a minimum after-hours. And if you need to work from home from time to time, that’s encouraged too.

In fact, recently we were named one of Inc.'s Best Workplaces! But don’t just take it from me. Here are what some members of our Sales Team had to say about working at EveryAction. And if you're interested in joining our team, check out our current openings.
