Operations Associate

What we do:
Procurated is a ratings and reviews platform for the public sector. We strive to make public sector procurement more efficient, and in turn, improve the lives of the citizens served.
We have created an online environment and a workplace (whether in person or remotely) where everyone is set up for success. We are extremely proud of the platform and team we have built so far. We work hard, think big, and solve serious problems but don’t take ourselves too seriously.  

The Opportunity: 
We need your help making Procurated run. We’re looking to grow our team by more than half in the remainder of 2020. You’ll be working hand in glove with the senior members of Procreated to help recruit the next wave of A Players to our team. The Operations Associate is a creative problem-solver who is eager to jump in and make an impact to help us to improve our business. You’re not afraid to get into the weeds to make sure every detail of a project is done right. 

We’re a small team. You’ll be one of the first dozen employees at the company. We’re looking for someone who enjoys working independently. We’ll expect you to develop and execute a strategy. We’re looking for a team player who is comfortable as an army of one. As you develop and find success, we’d love to give you the opportunity to develop professionally. Your success is our success.

What you might do on any given day: 
  • Create and document best practices and procedures 
  • Handle and organize administrative projects 
  • Work to improve experience of employees, government users, and suppliers 
  • Assist with recruiting and onboarding new employees 
  • Work with all teams to help company-wide initiatives come together 

About you: 
  • You live anywhere in the US (read about our remote work environment here)
  • You’ve been working for a year or so 
  • You sweat the small stuff and like to figure out the nitty gritty details 
  • You would help someone who dropped their groceries on the sidewalk 
  • You love coming up with creative ways to solve a problem 
  • You care about how things work, and want to make them work better 
  • You’re tech-savvy and open-minded 
  • You’re resilient -- You know the value of having a process in place, but you’re ready for the bumps too 
  • You are open to constructive conversations—whether it’s listening to a new point of view, using feedback to improve your own work, or starting something over from scratch because it’s just not working 

Things you might have done before joining the team: 
  • Talent recruiting for a company or organization 
  • Worked with government, a tech-company, or in a start-up environment 
  • Played on a team or been a member of a tight-knit group 
  • Spent the weekend organizing your drawers

The Procurated Story: 
 Founded in 2019, Procurated provides a way for state and local government, educational, healthcare and non-profit purchasers to write reviews of suppliers they have worked with. These reviews help other procurement professionals make more informed decisions when selecting their next supplier. We work closely with suppliers to help them understand the needs of the public sector and improve performance. In serving two sides of the marketplace, we help to simplify and streamline procurement. 
Procurated is an early-stage startup backed financially by Limerick Hill LLC and MayFive Holdings, Inc. The company’s founder and CEO served as Deputy Secretary for Procurement of the Pennsylvania Department of General Services and brings valuable experience having sat in the chair of a public procurement professional.
