TL;DR: Funded, remote friendly startup with product/market fit is looking for a senior frontend engineer - react frontend, .NET backend, running on Azure - to be an early member of a rapidly growing engineering team.
Longer version: DemandStar is looking to hire our first Senior Frontend Engineer.
DemandStar is an eProcurement platform and supplier network for city, county, and municipal governments. We already have >500 governments and >100k vendors actively using our platform.
Governments post their bids on our platform (for free!), and we alert our network of vendors. Vendors win because they no longer have to check 30 different town government websites every week for bid opportunities, and governments win by getting on average 3x more responses to every bid, which means more competition and lower prices.
It's a small team of 10, but unlike most startups this size we're significantly de-risked. The company is cashflow positive and we recently closed a $2M fundraising round (led by Version One) to fuel more growth. We already have product/market fit, we already have a huge customer base, and we already know (more or less) what we need to do to turn the dials on growth.
We have a heavy contingent in the Pacific Northwest, but we are building a remote-first culture and actively growing outside the PNW. And unlike some startups, we’re big believers in not pulling 60-80 hour weeks. Many on the team have young families that they like to spend time with.
You'll be an early member of a rapidly growing, product-oriented engineering team.
If the idea of making the procurement process smoother for small and medium-sized governments, or you love the idea of directly and quantifiably saving taxpayer money... I'd love to chat. Send me an email (in my profile) and lets talk.
