In 2008 (after a two-year sojourn in Singapore), I was approached by Kareem Mayan to work with him as the first product manager and software developer on Chimp. Over the course of the next seven years we built the initial prototype and several additional iterations, taking it to over $100M in receipted charitable donations. I worked directly with the CEO, CTO, auditors, built a double-entry accounting system and wrote code from the back-end to the front-end. Wrote all initial code to handle importing of data from the Canada Revenue Agency to list and categorize all Canadian charities as part of our online database. My roles and responsibilities over the course of those seven years were significant and varied (I don’t want to write a novel about it, and you don’t want to read it – so let’s leave it at that). Bell Canada, Unbounce and Hootsuite (among many others) have all run fundraising campaigns using Chimp.
