Headquartered in El Segundo, CA, Vision Internet is a rapidly growing (double digits) national leader in website development and software solutions for city and local governments. As an employer, Vision Internet offers the rare combination of the high growth culture of a growth equity-backed company along with the stability of a twenty year track record of excellence in our industry.
With the release of our new Software as a Service / SaaS content management system (visionCMS6™) in 2013 and a substantial equity investment from a Santa Monica-based growth equity firm in 2014, Vision Internet is uniquely positioned to bring governments closer to their constituents than ever before. Our missions are to offer governments beautiful, high-functioning and easy to use web-based portals and software tools while empowering their constituents to be informed and involved whether they are in front of a computer or on a mobile device.
During this stage in our growth, opportunities are plentiful for the right people. We’re looking for motivated, knowledgeable, dynamic individuals to join our exciting team. We have a wide range of positions available in our Project Management department from entry level to senior. If you fit our requirements we’d love to hear from you.
