NCCER has made significant investments in several custom applications that help set it up for a successful transition and migration into digital delivery of its curriculum, learning content, computer-based testing, credentialing, and certification services to the construction industry.

As we continue to grow into this space, adding new content and business models in 2024 and beyond, we are looking to reinforce our team with a seasoned Ruby Developer.

As a team member you will help us enhance and improve existing applications and participate in projects to develop new ones.
