Join CoProcure as our First Recruiter

San Francisco, CA | Full-Time

The market for government spending is huge — $1.9 trillion at the state and local levels in the US — but remains inefficient and largely offline. A public employee has better online tools to hire a babysitter or buy a new outfit than to make an essential purchase on behalf of the public. By aggregating and organizing procurement information, CoProcure expedites the purchasing process for governments from 6+ months to a few weeks. We're bringing the ease and efficiency of online shopping to public procurement.

CoProcure has $465M GMV in annualized search value and that number is growing 35% quarter over quarter. If you’re looking to grow at the speed of a startup and achieve impact at the scale of government, apply to join our small team that's making a huge difference.

About this role

As CoProcure’s first Recruiter, you will own the hiring process end to end. You'll work closely with the founders for every role to develop a hiring strategy and determine requirements, especially on non-technical roles.

This is a full-time role based in San Francisco, CA. We support a hybrid work environment: most of our team members spend 3 days in the office and the other days working from home or remotely.
