Job Description

Benefits: Alluma offers comprehensive benefits including flexible paid time off (3 week minimum for most new roles that increases with tenure), plus 13 annual holidays, 1 float day, 1 volunteer day, and a winter break to recharge at the end of the year.

How We Work:

We listen and learn from our communities to design technology solutions that put people on a path toward economic and social well-being.

We are a low-ego, humble group of people that love what we do and love bringing out the best in each other. You’ll be a great fit for this team if you foster engaged collaboration and believe it’s time to reimagine how technology can bring agency to communities and connect families and individuals to opportunity.
