TECHNOLOGY TEAM

Product Manager

We’re a Boston-based venture-backed startup disrupting how companies make purchasing decisions. Organizations ranging from the MBTA to Priceline trust us to guide their purchasing.

Fairmarkit's mission is to revolutionize how procurement tail spend is handled. Tail spend is the 20% of total spend that organizations direct towards non-strategic procurement. (For instance, think of a car company buying 10,000 screws.) Not only are companies overpaying for this but 80% of the average company’s vendors are bidding to provide its least important items, making it a management nightmare. Fairmarkit is a groundbreaking SaaS platform that automates visibility into and control of all tail spend processes. More important, Fairmarkit's unique procurement automation solution cuts spend by up to 12%.

We’re growing incredibly quickly and are looking for a rockstar to join our team. We love our jobs and you should too. Join us to be part of an amazing group of people who are transforming how buying decisions are made!
