About Your Team Leader
Your team leader, Tash, the director of DevOps, is a mission-driven technologist who joined Mercy For Animals in February 2020 after having held various technical and leadership positions in the arts and cultural nonprofit community for 13 years. She believes that a strong technology strategy and its effective implementation are vital for mission-driven organizations to maximize their impact. As a former database administrator, she is highly detailed and risk aware. As a former CRM strategist, she is always looking to the future—keeping her eye on where we want to be so we can identify opportunities and grow in the right direction.
She values a growth mindset and promotes a healthy work-life balance. And as someone who “thinks out loud,” she encourages people to voice even so-called bad ideas—because you never know where inspiration might come from. Outside the world of Mercy For Animals, your team leader enjoys creating abstract art, spending time with her six (foster fail) cats, cooking, participating in social justice causes, and watching stand-up comedy.
Compensation and Benefits
Earn an annual salary of $80,000–$89,500 (in the United States*), depending on qualifications. In addition to a collaborative and innovative work environment, you will be able to take part in our benefits package, including no- or low-cost health, vision, and dental insurance; generous paid time off and sick leave; and 401(k) retirement plan, with a dollar-to-dollar employer match of up to 3 percent of your annual earnings.
*Benefits and salary outside the United States will be shared early in the interview process.
We consider traditional and nontraditional qualifications and carefully review each application, resume, and cover letter. Feel encouraged to go outside a traditional cover letter and state how you would add to our culture; what we would gain from having you on our team; and how you align with our organizational vision, mission, and values.
