We’re looking for a full-time administrative assistant. Your duties would be primarily marketing support and general office management. This includes mailings to schools, maintaining mailing lists, updating our social media sites and responding to routine correspondence. You’ll also assist with expense reports and travel arrangements.
Since we are a game company, you’ll be doing game testing and reporting bugs and maintaining documentation on the company wiki. You’ll also occasionally be making flash drives for game distribution to schools and after-school programs.
The ideal candidate will be very familiar with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel as well as Google Apps. We use both Mac and Windows so we are looking for someone very experienced with one operating system and with at least some familiarity with the other. Knowledge of a graphics program, e.g., Photoshop, is desirable but not required.
The three biggest qualifications for this job:
- You must be reliable. Our office is in Santa Monica. If you cannot make it into the office five days a week during normal business hours, please don’t apply.
- Have initiative. We don’t know what you don’t know. If you don’t know how to do an animation in PowerPoint, ask and we’ll be happy to teach you.
- Be interested in learning new stuff. We’ll be happy to teach you (didn’t I just say that) anything from version control to HTML5 to word macros to … well, anything we do, You’ll learn a lot of new applications on this job, especially for graphics, video and sound editing.
We are a growing start-up and there is a lot of room for you to grow with us.
