There's a reason that The NonProfit Times has named KaBOOM! one of the 50 best nonprofits to work for in the United States -- two years in a row! After all, how many offices have a tire swing in the lobby? Hopscotch in the hallways? Bottomless supplies of PB&J in the kitchen?
At KaBOOM!, our motto is “serious fun.” Playgrounds don’t build themselves, and we have our work cut out for us to realize our ambitious vision of a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America. But in our offices, “work” and “fun” go hand in hand. Click here to see the Top 10 reasons we love working for KaBOOM!.
