Why Zeffy

Zeffy is a start-up that is revolutionizing the social economy. Our web tools save thousands of dollars every day for more than 4,000 charities. ✊
We are growing rapidly. From 2020 to 2022, we multiplied our volume by 10, and this is just the beginning!
✨ In 2019, our first round of funding (SEED) allowed us to develop the Canadian market and achieve high growth rates; doubling the number of organizations using our tools every three months. Less than 2 years later in September 2021, we raised our Series A and we are now quickly growing in the United States. Beyond social impact, we need a team of passionate people to take on the new growth challenges that await us. πŸš€

We like to work with

  • A passionate and curious person who is not afraid to learn and try new things
  • Someone who is looking to have a positive impact on society
  • Someone ambitious and who wants to create something big and change the landscape of charities across North America
  • Someone who knows how to prioritize between what needs to be done perfectly and what needs to be done quickly
  • Someone who comes up with simple solutions to complex problems
  • Someone who hates long meetings and inefficiency
  • Someone who knows when to take a break and enjoy lunch with colleagues
