Focal Point Procurement Solutions Inc. Technical Implementation Specialist Atlanta, GA · Remote · Full time

Help onboard our solution at some of the largest companies in the world. Work in a fast paced and fun environment at a rapidly growing company.

Description

Company Overview:


Founded in 2020 by a 25-year veteran in the procurement vertical, Focal Point looks at end-to-end procurement through a practitioner lens. Excel and email are the still the most prevalent tools used by procurement professionals resulting in work being done off system, ad-hoc and inconsistently.


Since the initial product was launched in 2021 with two global name-brand clients Focal Point has enjoyed an average of >300% annual growth (year over year) due to attracting more than five F500 (two of which are F50) companies.


To support 2023 growth and the expected 2024 pipeline we are expanding the team that onboards and supports new clients.
