kiva is an outstanding place to work!

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

Pros- doing good for the world
- leading edge technology pioneer
- brilliant employees
- international scope to everything that you do
- talent is rewarded & recognized

Cons- as a non profit, the salaries are a bit under market
- benefits are great if you're single, but not so much if you're married
- mission district location has its pluses & minuses

Advice to Senior Managementbe sure to focus on giving honest & direct feedback to employees. everyone wants to improve & grow, so you need to provide the details. develop a more comprehensive benefits package since many of us are starting to have families. otherwise, you guys are doing a terrific job!
