RAMP, Inc.

RAMP is a forward-thinking, active, complex non-profit and we are currently seeking an energetic, knowledgeable individual to serve as our full-time Human Resource Generalist.

We currently employ 34 staff from four offices, serving the counties of Winnebago, Boone, Stephenson and DeKalb.


RAMP's culture is different from other work cultures. We work in a Results Only Work Environment (ROWE) where it is all about responsibility, accountability and autonomy.
