About the Role

What we are looking for:
Charity Navigator, the world’s largest and most trusted nonprofit evaluator, seeks a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) with 15+ years experience to join its executive team and lead the technological evolution and teams for the organization. The CTO will partner with the Executive Team to create the product strategy, technological vision and strategic roadmap for the next generation of Charity Navigator’s digital products. This role requires a creative, hands-on, systems thinker able to lead teams to excel in a fast paced consumer web environment.

Why this matters:
Charity Navigator’s ratings, information, website and giving tools make impactful giving easier for all and establish a bridge of trust between donors and the charities addressing the issues they care about most. As more money goes to higher performing organizations, social outcomes improve.

Charity Navigator’s consumer facing website receives millions of visitors annually searching for known and unknown charities across a database of 1.6 million nonprofits. We currently offer ratings for just under 200,000 charities and are continuously growing both the depth and breath of these ratings. Customer success demands an intuitive user experience for both the donor and the rated charity.

The ideal candidate is experienced across a broad range of engineering tools, technologies and platforms, with deep expertise in software architecture and modern software engineering best practices. They are passionate about building complex, enterprise-class solutions at scale. They have a compelling track record for developing, maintaining, and evolving high-demand consumer environments. This leader needs to be collaborative, practical, customer obsessed, assertive and able to function and lead teams in a lean, nonprofit environment.

About the Organisation

Charity Navigator is the world’s largest and most-utilized independent charity evaluator. The organization guides informed giving by evaluating the financial health, accountability, and transparency of charities and by providing data about 1.7 million nonprofits, accessed more than 10 million times annually. Charity Navigator does not charge the organizations it evaluates, ensuring unbiased evaluations, nor does it charge the public for this trusted data. As a result, Charity Navigator, a 501(c)(3) public charity itself, depends on support from individuals, corporations, and foundations that believe it provides a much-needed service to America's charitable givers.
