- Experience writing modern single-page web applications, ideally with React and MobX (or redux).

Our Company is a nationally recognized technology company that aggregates purchase order data from local, state and federal government agencies to provide search, reporting and analysis capabilities. Our Software as a Service (SaaS) solution is offered to both government vendors and government agencies on a subscription basis.
Our mission is to help procurement professionals (government and vendors) make better decisions, cultivate collaboration and build a greater sense of community. We collect and provide access to critical purchasing data that enables the overall purchasing process to be much more efficient. Bottom line: our product does two great things at once - it saves the government millions of dollars and helps government vendors become more profitable.
