About Momentum

We build SaaS donation pages that help nonprofits get a higher volume of subscription giving, by tying donations to events in your life. For example, every time you buy gas you can give to carbon offsets, or every time there's a police shooting you can donate to BLM. We recently turned Trump tweets into $5m to stop his election.

Company Culture

We're trying to create a culture where we move quickly, everyone feels empowered to do their job, and everyone is passionate about what we're doing. You should be excited to come to work each morning and should work in an environment that makes that easy. To that end, we have a set of core values to foster this culture:

Impact: We're not here to make fidget spinners, we're here to make a difference. That permeates everything we do, giving it a sense of purpose. At Momentum you can wake up proud each morning knowing that you are saving lives every day.

Ownership: We don't like hierarchy, so don't do something just because you were told to. We try to understand the why behind a task, which lets you find creative solutions and empowers you to take risks.

Collaboration: We also don't want isolated autonomy. We think of ourselves like a sports team, working towards a shared goal, leaning on each of our strengths to get there together.

Idea meritocracy: No matter how an idea comes to the table or who it comes from, we give it equal weight in consideration. And we believe in testing our ideas to learn the right answer! It’s okay to be wrong and it’s okay to make mistakes.

Honesty: we value transparency and being straightforward, whether in brainstorming ideas, speaking up, or giving feedback. We deeply value a growth mindset and try to use that to facilitate greater honesty.

Psychological safety: To truly feel comfortable speaking up and being honest requires a high level of trust. You should feel comfortable bringing your entire self to work and feel safe expressing who you are and what you think.

Extraordinary results: together these values create an environment where we can work productively and passionately. We each put in an incredible effort to succeed and expect ourselves to achieve extraordinary things.
