We're building technology to improve outcomes for public servants, businesses, and taxpayers across the country.
Apply startup methodologies to public sector challenges. Move quickly and iterate on solutions that address problems of great consequence for our communities.
We're a tiny team with huge ambitions to change how local governments spend $1T+ of public funds each year. We'll trust you to bring this vision to life with high-impact, creative work.
Work with mission-driven teammates, innovative public servants from across the country, and top-tier investors including Leadout Capital and Neo.
What we value
We strive to achieve better public outcomes, period.
We disagree, but then align to row in the same direction. We communicate clearly and frequently to make sure we’re all working towards a clear, shared goal.
We take pride in our work, learn from our failures, embrace our differences, and celebrate our successes. We, like our product, are constant works in progress.
We’re unafraid to be sincere, passionate, and occasionally total goofballs. We enjoy showing our respect and affection for each other in weird, quirky ways.
