04 ABOUT WORLD VISION USA When you work at World Vision, your passions and talents come together to meet the greatest needs in the world today. We go to ends of the earth and into the margins. Where few go and the road is less traveled. Because Jesus is alive in the hardest places to be a child. We are dangerously soft-hearted. But just the right kind of dangerous. That's because we're a global Christian humanitarian organization. We partner with children, families, and their communities to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. We empower people out of poverty. For real. For good. For nearly the last 70 years. Jesus' love at the center. Always. We're Christian and follow Jesus' example to show unconditional love to the poor and oppressed. Serving every child we can regardless of faith. Are you feeling called to explore joining us? We hope so.
05 YOU BRING A Bachelor's degree or equivalent work experience (4 years) and a minimum 4 years quality assurance (QA) testing of web applications with progressively increasing level of responsibility.
07 LET YOUR WORK BE YOUR FAITH IN ACTION Together we could change more lives in more ways. We’ve already impacted the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty but our work is not finished. Every day, nearly 16,000 children under the age of 5 die from preventable causes. Our call to action is urgent. That’s why we’re looking for someone who is ready to place their giftings and talents behind helping the world’s most vulnerable children. Every design and solution crafted, line of code written, or blocker fixed can help influence whether someone chooses to help today or not. If not you, then who?
