You’ll join a diverse team that includes finance, accounting, HR and office management. We love being knee-deep in spreadsheets and data but can party like rock stars, too – we help plan all the events and soirees for the company! You’ll be around folks who are uber competitive (don’t get us started on the soccer field), but also keep it fair when we need to, which happens a lot since we’re usually the commissioner for all office tourneys like the March Madness pool and our Fantasy Football league. Most of all, if you really value working closely with every department at VR and supporting their business goals, you’ll fit right in!
