It's difficult to write this job post without running the risk of offending people. But here goes...
Have you seen Iron Man? Tony Stark is this genius inventor/superhero who becomes Iron Man. He's globally respected and does things no one else can do.
Do you know how he does it?
He has Pepper Potts. She keeps his life in order, whether it's helping at his company, or buying herself a birthday present because he will probably forget.
We are looking for a Pepper Potts (male or female). We run a really fast-growing company. We have a ton of stuff to get done, and we need help with it. When we leave a meeting, we need someone to help us follow up with our employees or vendors. This means you need to listen perfectly, take diligent notes, draft great emails, and be willing to hold people accountable.
After another 80-hour work-week, our offices can get trashed. We need someone who can help organize, sort through the piles, file things (digitally and physically), and help find those items 2 days later when they’re needed. This means you need to be organized, patient, and have a memory like a bear trap.
We travel a lot for work. We need someone we can trust to get our cars inspected, feed our dogs (if we don't board them), and return the stupid things we bought on Amazon. This means you need to be able to drive a vehicle, get along with an energetic puppy, and be super-polite to the clerk at the UPS Store.
We get more emails than any human being can process in a day, and our calendars are usually jam-packed. We need someone who can get familiar with our business, our clients, our friends, our family, and the people we don't want to talk to. This means you need to be able to make decisions independently, gain an understanding of what's important to us (and how we spend our time), and act accordingly.
And during all of that, we forgot to pick up our children’s paperwork from school, we remembered a document we need that was signed 5 years ago, and we realized we need to travel to Miami in 2 weeks. We need someone who can stop by the school, follow our extremely fuzzy instructions, and book our travel plans, or just do the meeting over zoom. Plus, it's Miami, so you'll need to figure out what to do if there are no first-class flights available. And don't be offended if we swore during that entire interaction.
Are our expectations high? Yes.
Are our directions always clear? No.
Will we expect you to read our minds? Sometimes.
But you will have a ton of fun, and have an impact on our community? Absolutely.
We have, and continue to build, great policies, systems, and procedures in our business. This means you will have clear expectations and a lot of guidance on how we want things done. However, no system is perfect. We need intelligent people who can make decisions, think for themselves, and move things in the best direction.
We’ve never hired anyone for a position like this before (although we do have a fast-growing team). This is a very important position for us. We intend to hire someone who will become extremely valuable for us, our families, and our business. If you are interested, please apply on this site, but be prepared for a challenging interview process.
