We are looking for a an experienced full stack Senior Ruby on Rails developer to join our team. Read more about the VC Lab tech team here:

The ideal dev is self-motivated with real-world experience and there is no question in your mind that you could take an idea and turn it into a functional and usable product. You don’t need a fancy degree, a certain number of years of coding experience, or big tech experience -- but you do need to be a nice person and a good communicator.

Basic requirements:
- You'll be expected to complete a coding challenge as part of the interview process (everybody on the team has done well on it).
- You must live and work within a few time zones of Pacific (California) time. We are on zoom and slack a lot.
- You must be able to own a project and work directly with people who will use your tools.

If you're motivated to be more, and better, than you are today, if you're not afraid to work with proven, highly skilled people who will ask for your best, to advance a worthy cause, in a fast-paced environment, with a lot of growth opportunity -- then you're a good fit for VC Lab. 

And we want to work with you too!
