About SimplyFundraisingCRM and The Biedermann Group (parent company)
We are an integrated fundraising software company that helps nonprofits save time, increase communications, and raise more money for their mission. We’ve been in business since February of 2020 and launched our flagship product platform, SimplyFundraisingCRM one year later. We’re a technology-first team dedicated to building an approachable and adaptable platform that empowers everyone at a nonprofit to use fundraising software easily, simply, and affordably.
SimplyFundraisingCRM operates in a flexible startup environment where employees can be hands-on in helping build a new company. Our company is fully remote with no physical office. We keep in touch with Slack, SimplyFundraisingCRM itself, and regular video conferences. We meet as a team once a week, and are required to connect with other staff members during standard US business hours, including remote personnel in Europe.
You can work from home, a coffee shop, the lake, the mountains, or the beach as long as the work gets done.
