The perfect person for this position must...

  • Be skilled in creating, editing, and promoting written and visual content. Writing is incredibly important to this role, from short form social support to long form blogs. 

  • Be a self-starter. Our team is small, but achieves a lot for our clients. You must be willing and able to jump in and keep projects moving forward with little direction. If you need reminders to get work done, this position is not for you. 

  • Be an excellent communicator. Our business is defined by communicating verbally and through writing. You must be confident in your communication skills to apply!

  • Provide exceptional customer service. Our client relationships are important, and maintaining excellent service, that goes above and beyond expectations, is a must!

  • Be dependable. We are counting on you to complete the tasks needed, and to take initiative to ensure a project well-done.

  • Love details. No detail is too small. Our team will depend on you to capture the details that help make our well-oiled machine continue to run like a champ.

  • Thrive when working both independently and as part of a team. 

  • Work Independently: Most of the work completed for this position will be done remotely. You must be a self-starter, who is able to complete tasks without reminders, and without someone encouraging you to get to work. 

  • Work as a Team: Though small, our team is mighty. We accomplish a lot of work, and the input of all team members is needed. Building positive team relationships is important, as our internal relationships are reflected to our clients. 

  • Enjoy learning. Our industry changes, and we must adapt and change with it. If the idea of learning new technology, tools and techniques makes you break into a sweat… this is not the position for you.

 

Additional Details:

  • This is a part-time, contract position. Initially, the position will be approximately 15+ hours per week, with the opportunity for growth in hours and responsibilities if mutually agreed upon.
