In this role, there will always be a variety of tasks and projects for you to work on. We’re looking for someone who is extremely organized and detail-oriented - nothing can slip through the cracks!

This entry-level role is ideal for a recent graduate looking to get their feet wet and learn a whole bunch about startups, small businesses, technology and education while contributing to a team that really cares about what we do every day. It could also be a great fit for someone with experience in sales, retail or hospitality – office experience not required, nor do we care about things like degrees or diplomas. We care about finding great people to join our team, and then helping them to reach their full potential!
