Job description

Here’s the scoop:

We're looking for a passionate Full-Stack Developer to help us build the next generation of GovSpend, a well-funded civic startup disrupting government procurement by aggregating, indexing, analyzing, and otherwise transforming government purchasing data. We're a Code for America Accelerator company and have an incredible team of seasoned executives and engineers. We work hard but maintain a casual work environment with a strong culture as a tech startup. As a new member of the GovSpend family, you'll work closely with our senior team members to implement critical pieces of our modern, forward-thinking architecture – learning many new technologies as you touch every part of the application’s source code.

You’ll build new features and products in our web app, from the UI components in the browser to the node services and database structure behind them in modern (ES6+) javascript. The area you focus in is largely up to you - some of our developers end up more focused on GUI, others on services, but everyone is good at both.

We are looking for someone who…

  • Is passionate about web development and related technologies.
  • Has the curiosity to research and learn new technologies and skills.
  • Demonstrates determination in tackling complex projects and finding solutions.
  • Employs positive thinking and is able to work constructively in a team setting.

What You’ll Need:

  • Bachelor’s degree in MIS, Computer Science or similar strongly preferred. Proven work experience will be considered in lieu of degree.
  • Strong core modern javascript skills.
  • Experience writing modern single-page web applications, ideally with React and MobX (or redux).
  • Understanding of functional programming (solid lodash or ramda experience may be sufficient, real Category Theory for bonus points).
  • Experience with NodeJS.


  • Exposure to NoSQL (Mongo, ElasticSearch, and/or Redis Preferred).

About GovSpend

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.

We do real-time search and analytics on over 700 million records from almost 15,000 data sources in a multi-terabyte index from a modern full stack JavaScript single page web app.

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.
