The mission: help build a better world

This is not just another job. If you want to use your skills to fight injustice, support refugees, make humanitarian aid more effective, build tools for human rights defenders, and generally just change the world for the better then DEV might be the right home for you.

We are a not for profit co-op working with some of the biggest and most impactful NGOs and charities in the world. We work on solving fascinating problems with inspiring people and we are committed to empowering each other at the same time.

We believe that great people want to do meaningful and challenging work. If you are an amazing designer, developer, campaigner, fundraiser, project manager, or you think you have other skills that our NGO partners could benefit from then we would love to hear from you.

Paul Evans

Creative Director

In life, there aren't many chances to make a meaningful difference in the world. We get those chances every day.

Dan Pink's illustrated talk at the RSA reveals the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.

We believe we should work hard in order to be happy, but could we be thinking about things backwards? In this fast-moving and very funny talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that, actually, happiness inspires us to be more productive.

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi asks, "What makes a life worth living?" Noting that money cannot make us happy, he looks to those who find pleasure and lasting satisfaction in activities that bring about a state of "flow."

Pay that is meaningful

  • We've put a lot of time into researching and discussing the best pay structures for our unique not for profit co-op tech shape. You can read more about the thinking that shapes our salary structure in our Pay Principles and see the specific details on how a salary is determined in How We Do Salaries.

A positive place for everyone

  • We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity in our team. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status and we actively encourage and welcome applications from under-represented groups. For a more in-depth read on the importance of diversity in organisations, see this great piece from our friends at The Engine Room.
  • Do you consider yourself to have a learning difficulty and/or hidden disability such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD or an Autistic Spectrum Disorder that you may need additional support with during the recruitment process? Please note that this will not negatively impact your application in any way! If you have concerns regarding disclosure or form filling, feel free to contact our partnership specialists Exceptional Individuals prior to application or interview for impartial advice.
  • We work hard to create a positive, equal, and welcoming environment for everyone but we recognise this is an ongoing process of improvement. If you have any thoughts or suggestions on things we can do better, please get in touch with us at studio@dev.ngo.
