Do you want to work for a groundbreaking company that is working to make a positive difference in the world?
Avisare believes that together, we can use technology to level the playing field for small and medium businesses to contend for the billions of dollars in government contracts that far too often go to the same few companies who know how to play the RFP/Bid game well. Wouldn’t things be better if we could streamline that process to make things easier for everyone? What if in the process of doing that we could also increase the diversity of the businesses bidding on those contracts?
We are an early stage startup, so we are looking for someone who is comfortable wearing many hats and pitching in where needed, which means the phrase “not my job” should not be in your vocabulary. We want a developer who is passionate about building simple, elegant user experiences driven by technical complexity that is hidden to the end user. Moving that complexity of a business process into the system rather than passing it off to the user should be part of your DNA.
We want to bring cutting edge but proven technology and data science to an industry where it can be transformative without having to reinvent the wheel. If you are a person who is fascinated by the ways others have solved technical problems and with a desire to apply those solutions in unique ways, this is a position where you can shine.

Architect and Develop (preferably full stack) a web application to link vendors and government agencies through advanced matching technology
