Imagine yourself here!

OpenGov is a mission driven fast-growth, Series D, venture backed startup (includes Andreessen Horowitz, Formation 8, and Emerson Collective). Our Board of Directors includes iconic Silicon Valley executives John Chambers (former Cisco Chairman and CEO) and Marc Andreessen (Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world).

About the role

We are looking for multiple talented and passionate software engineers to join us on our mission to empower more effective government procurement through automation, collaboration, and data analytics.

What we are seeking

Must be ready to tackle a challenge, wear multiple hats, and do whatever it takes to win.
A high level of dedication and eagerness to take ownership of your work.

Strong desire to make a large impact on a fast-moving team that is dedicated to building a more efficient society.
You love being part of a career family that looks out for each other!

Ideal candidates will have
