JavaScript Job Details

Outcomes. Delivered.

GCOM develops technology that helps state and local governments improve outcomes for the people they serve.

For example, our technology:

  • Ensures that mothers can buy healthy food for their children through the WIC program
  • Helps first responders decrease opioid overdoses in their neighborhoods
  • Tracks trends in human trafficking so local law enforcement can identify traffickers and better support victims
  • Gives teachers the insights they need to spot students who need extra support
  • Helps state tax agencies process returns 99% faster so taxpayers get their refunds right away

We’re more than a technology company -- we’re an outcomes company.

We encourage our employees to think differently, ask tough questions, and relentlessly pursue what’s best for our customers and the residents they serve.

We believe that the value of technology is defined by its human impact. If you agree, you’ve come to the right place.
