About OpenGov

We were founded in 2012, when California was in the middle of a budget crisis and municipal revenues were drying up. We discovered that dedicated public servants were struggling against outdated technology that prevented them from accessing timely spending information and communicating their priorities to citizens and elected officials. So we developed an easy-to-use, integrated Smart Government Cloud™ that features robust solutions for Budgeting, Operational Performance, and Citizen Engagement.

Job Description

OpenGov is a mission driven fast-growth, Series D, venture backed startup (includes Andreessen Horowitz, Formation 8, and Emerson Collective).

EngOps is a group of talented engineers passionate about building highly scalable and secure solutions on public cloud using open source and other industry-standard software components (see EngOps Tech Stack), in a setting that is fast-paced and agile. Our customers are internal to the organization. We make architectural decisions in close collaboration with them and then iterate quickly to provide high quality platforms and solutions.
