Here’s the scoop:

We're looking for a passionate Web Application 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.

What you’ll do:

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, functional 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. Every line of code goes through a pull request review, so everyone has the opportunity to collaborate on everything that’s going on in the company.

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 understanding of functional programming in Javascript. Currying and composition should be second nature to you. Extensive Lodash or Ramda experience may be sufficient, but you’ll get bonus points for Category Theory.

  • Be proficient with React and MobX (Redux with selectors can work too).

  • Have Production experience with NodeJS.

Bonus:

  • Contribute to our open source repos (github.com/smartprocure). We’ve hired almost everyone that’s done so and interviewed all of them.

  • Have exposure to NoSQL (Mongo, ElasticSearch, and Redis are used heavily here).

  • Bachelors of Science degree in MIS, Computer Science or similar strongly preferred. Proven work experience will be considered in lieu of degree.
