My name is Zac Bookman, and I’m the Co-Founder and CEO of OpenGov. I want to personally thank you for your interest in working at OpenGov. 

OpenGov is a mission-driven company that is changing the world by powering more effective and accountable government. We’ve come a long way since several of us co-founded the company in 2012, while I was living in half a shipping container in Kabul, Afghanistan.  Today, we have over 200 employees in 5 offices across the US, over 2,000 governments using The OpenGov Cloud™, and $140M in funding from market-leading investors like Andreessen Horowitz, 8VC, the Emerson Collective, and Weatherford Capital. We also have the industry’s leading multi-tenant cloud solution for Budgeting, Performance, Reporting, and Communications.

To become the leader in cloud-based solutions for government, we have been committed to hiring the best and brightest in every job function -- engineering, product management, sales, marketing, customer success, finance, and technical support.  OpenGov employees have a collective 300 years of experience in government service, including more than 100 years in finance and multi-fund accounting. We are also assembling a world-class leadership team of top executives and managers who have helped grow companies to IPO scale.  As everyone knows, companies succeed or fail based on the quality of their people. We intend to assemble the premier team in this important industry and ensure we stay aligned as a company -- always focused on our people, our customers, and our mission.


With the enterprise-grade talent, experience, expertise, and smarts of all of these new people, we have significantly expanded and matured our solutions.  We are now the leading public sector Budgeting and Performance solution in the market, powering over 2,000 governments and counting. We are bringing on new customers every week as the word spreads about the benefits for our nation’s public administration.


But it doesn’t stop there! For OpenGov to continue its transformation, we need star talent like you. Please check out our open positions here, and apply for the role(s) you are best fit for. 

Thanks again for your interest in OpenGov and your support as we bring change to the most important industry!

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OpenGov in October 2016.


    First Skyped with a recruiter and we spoke about my experience and the nature of OpenGov and their stack/what they were looking for. She actually gave me credentials to log in to a demo implementation of their product to play with. I then had a technical phone/coding interview with a developer, who asked fairly normal moderate/easy coding questions
