What You Could Be Working On

The Web Experience

Our website is the perfect marriage between form and function. As a front end developer, you will work on our fully responsive, resolution independent, global website of its caliber. It represents where the web is headed and where our customers are headed as well. We are presented with the challenge of maintaining consistency across multiple browsers, devices and resolutions. Our team is mindful of these evolutions, and we continue to think progressively as the web changes.

Raise Multi Device

Our product team continually expands and improves how people buy, sell, and manage their gift cards on their phones and tablets to deliver a big experience on even the smallest screen.

Expanding Our Reach

We think Raise is pretty easy to love. Who doesn’t love discounted money? Our developers channel this enthusiasm into features for a range of devices (for web, mobile, and email) that tell the Raise story in ways that are just as clean, compelling, and dynamic as the product itself.
