Small business purchasing ... doesn't sound that sexy at first, right? Well, consider that there are over 4.7 million SMBs in the US alone, purchasing over $2.2 trillion in equipment and physical goods. Most of these businesses handle their purchasing as if they're stuck in the 1970s - paper trade directories, flipping through the yellow pages, waiting for suppliers to cold-call them. At Kinnek we are bringing SMB purchasing into the 21st century. Our singular aim is to become THE platform where SMBs manage all their purchases and supplier relationships. It's a massive opportunity to fundamentally change the way businesses interact.
You will be helping us solve the complex problem of efficiently and accurately mapping purchasing demand from SMBs with our ever-expanding network of suppliers. This is not your typical rinky-dink e-Commerce or social media website. Each SMB purchase request and quote is extremely customized with individualized specifications and nuanced constraints. To cater to this need, we've built a robust B2B ecosystem, which includes a pioneering marketplace, a few crazy algorithms and some pretty innovative interfaces. We need your help to not only iterate on existing features but also develop massive new parts of our platform, while ensuring that our business is capable of scaling fast.
