Yes-for-purpose Jobs: March 2016

This is a collection of tech jobs in companies with strong purposes, other than accumulating profit. They don't need to have non-profit status to be on this list but, perhaps not surprisingly, a lot of them have.

How we spend our working time is, in the end, how we spend our lives. Working towards a purpose we deeply care about can be an incredibly liberating experience.

PS: Know of a job that should be on this or next month's list? Just send me an email.
