Description

Across the United States, local governments provide critical services for millions of Americans. At CoProcure, we’re building purchasing technology that helps local governments more efficiently, effectively, and collaboratively deliver public services. We’re looking for technical interns for the spring and summer to help us as we pilot our product with 120+ local governments and beyond. Join us as we improve public purchasing to reinvest billions of dollars into our local communities. 

About CoProcure
CoProcure is an early stage startup on a mission to fix public procurement. Each year, local U.S. governments waste $300B of taxpayer dollars on purchasing inefficiencies. Regulations require that governments make purchases only after conducting a competitive bidding process. CoProcure helps governments find and share contracts generated by competitive bids in other jurisdictions — a legal and underutilized practice. CoProcure saves government employees time, taxpayers money, and helps vendors increase sales to local governments while shortening sales cycles. 

About the Internship
We’re looking for students or self-taught individuals who want to build experience while working on a problem with huge potential for social impact. As a small, close knit team, we promise to challenge you, pitch in when problems arise, and give feedback that will help you grow. 

As a technical intern on our small, close-knit team, you’ll work 10-20 hours each week to shape a product that will save taxpayer dollars and improve one of the most inefficient, frustrating processes in the public sector. Specifically, you’ll work closely with our Chief Technology Officer on tools that aggregate and organize public purchasing data for governments. We care more about your ability to learn and your passion for service over your resume. We hope you’ll be:
  • Familiar with basic web development. You’ve built a webpage on your own (this could be a personal project, experiment on codepen, or class assignment). You have entry-level experience with programming in Javascript or another language. 
  • Able to learn quickly and comfortable working with ambiguity (even better if you prefer it!).
  • Passionate about making government work better.
  • Excited to dig into the data behind problems and embrace an analytical approach.
  • Looking for significant impact at an (extremely) early technology startup.

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace committed to building a team culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion.
