Job Description

The YouVersion Software Engineer (Generosity and Spiritual Support) will help develop and build backend services that lead to increased engagement and growth through the Bible App across the globe. 


You’ve got skills. You’re motivated. You’ve got a passion to see people come to know Christ. All you’ve been missing is a place to put all of it together. The YouVersion Team could be that place. God brings people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences here, but He does it because we all have one thing in common: we won’t stop until every person on this Earth knows the love of Jesus. Ministry might not have been the first stop on your road map, but if you’ve been praying to put your skills to work alongside a team of Kingdom-minded, sold-out, on-fire believers, we’ve got good news. You’re on the right path.


The YouVersion team is looking for a unique individual to serve as a Software Engineer on our product team focused on Generosity and Spiritual Support. With more than 450 million installs of the Bible App and 60 million installs of the Bible App for Kids, the YouVersion team continues to grow and evolve in an effort to appropriately steward the opportunities brought our way.
