Are you a self-starting, critical-thinking, proactively communicative Superstar VA?
Are you looking for an exciting, 100% remote opportunity at a rocketship start-up where no two days will be the same?
Do you want to learn a sh*t tonne, be an integral part of a small but growing team and contribute to a meaningful cause while having fun?
If so, then watch this video :)
What's In It for You:
100% Remote Job. You get to pick your hours and work from home in your pajamas or anywhere in the world.
Huge Professional Growth. As my right hand (wo)man, so any promotions, salary increases or special projects will offered to you first. As we grow, your role will also grow.
Training Provided. This is an entry-level position, so don't worry if you haven't done all of the things listed below (Though you should know some of it…)
Full Autonomy. I'm here for guidance and direction, not handholding. I expect you to take the task as far as you can, then come back to me with where you're at, what your roadblocks are, and a few options you think you can proceed with.
No One Looking Over Your Shoulder. Think of this opportunity as more of a partnership than a manager-employee relationship. I don't actually want to manage you - we're all adults, you can manage yourself.
Start Up Experience. We're a small but mighty team trying to transform the world for the better. We're a purpose-driven agency that help heart-led companies grow. Come join us!
Technical: WordPress, Elementor, Email Platforms, Canva, Loom, Discord, Google Drive, Airtable, HTML & CSS would be helpful
Research: Use your detective-level investigation skills to find out everything you can about a topic and present that information in an easy-to-understand format
Writing: Document SOPs, light copy and content writing, draft emails
Design: Using your eye for design (especially UX!) and understanding of the color wheel to fix up or create designs on Canva (or other software)
Project Management: Be the shepherd and move projects along according to time, budget and quality
Video Editing: Just the basics is fine, as long as you can emulate the style of our videos. You can use any software of your choice (I use iMovie)
Proactive Communication: Like any relationship, proactive, open communication is key. This means if you can't meet a deadline, tell me in advance. If you're roadblocked, tell me how I can help. Let's keep the feedback loop open!
Quality of Workvs Speed: Projects should be executed on quickly, but not if it compromises quality. Quality doesn't just mean double (or even triple!) checking your work to catch mistakes, it also means full completion of the task.
An Eye For Detail: Granularity, specificity, thoroughness in the work you produce.
Self-Starter, Self-Learner: If you haven't used Discord before, then turn to Google or YouTube and download it to familiarize yourself. It's always OK to do something you haven't done before, but always come at it with a curious, critical thinking, 'I'll figure it out' attitude.
Customer Service: You'll be in regular contact with clients, vendors and other team members, so infectious positivity is ideal!

Quiz & Video. It's your turn to make a video now :)
