We are looking for a creative problem solver with a ‘can do’ attitudes, people who are lifelong learners and will take the time to help and educate their teammates …. someone who loves what they do.

It’s not expected that any single candidate would check every box here. Research shows that while men and women share similarities in how they look for jobs, women may hold back if they don’t meet 100% of the criteria, while men usually apply after meeting about 60%.

If you meet just some of the requirements, but not all, we encourage you to submit your application!

We strongly encourage you to apply if you’re at all interested. Show us how your experience could improve our team and widen our perspective. Our selection process includes assessing the requirements of the role vs the individual, and how well we think they will work in the VALD team.
