What We Look For
VFA team members come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, but they do have a few things in common. They are all smart, energetic team players passionate about empowering recent college grads to revitalize American cities through entrepreneurship.
We expect each team member to contribute, add value, and be an asset to the organization. We value strong communicators, highly motivated relationship builders, and proactive doers, ready to roll up their sleeves and solve problems big & small.
As a VFA team member, you’ll immediately be given lots of autonomy, work on a wide range of projects and be trusted to strategize and execute new paths for growth. If you thrive in a fast-paced, highly productive environment, you will fit right in.
Why Work at VFA
We know that people do their best at work when they’re happy outside of it. To that end, we offer competitive salaries with health, dental, and vision benefits. We also offer generous perks, including professional development, wellness & tech stipends, weekly gym mornings, and flexible paid time off policy.
You’ll work alongside a dynamic team of professionals who also really like each other. From bike rides and workouts to communal playlists and murder mystery dinner parties, Team VFA believes in getting out of the office and having fun together. We’re not just coworkers, we’re a community.
“At VFA, I am surrounded but some of the sharpest, hardest working folks I have ever known. Everyone is always eager to lend a hand on big projects or help craft innovative solutions to the problems we are solving.”– Amy Nelson, Managing Director
