“JayC and Ruler are deeply committed to the nation’s veterans and their families, and we continue to seek out opportunities to honor heroes through career opportunities,” said Smith. “Our company is a place where you can come for a job and stay for a career. We are a company that veterans can be proud to work for because of our robust involvement in our local communities,” he said.

The online application requests an email address, employment history and education information and takes about 30 minutes to complete.
