You have experience working in an administrative capacity, proficiency with Microsoft Suite, strong written and verbal communication skills, and a passion for organizing things. You should be comfortable in an environment that demands problem-solving with minimal guidance and be able to react to situations quickly by switching gears at a moment’s notice in a level-headed manner. And most importantly, you should be willing to be part of a team of equals who are focussed on results, not hierarchy. “Other duties as required” is how we support one another as much as possible.

While we know we cannot compete with local industrial wages, we pride ourselves as an employer at accommodating our team as much as possible, whether that is with a comprehensive benefits package, flexible scheduling, or a hybrid work-from-home option.
