The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to not just develop software, but to build a system that will increase efficiencies for universities receiving grant funding? As a full-stack developer, you can solve a problem with a complete end-to-end solution in a fast-paced, agile environment. We’re looking for a developer with the skills needed to build major enhancements for an existing grants management system from vision to production-ready system.

This role is more than just coding. We need a full-stack developer who will use their passion to learn new tools and techniques and identify and implement system improvements. Using Agile life cycle development, you’ll work with the development team to build new features for a Ruby on Rails application.

Join us as we build systems to change agricultural grant research for the better.

Empower change with us.
