Operations Manager

The person we hire must have experience managing 10 or more staff members, be well-versed in HR & employment laws, as well have a general understanding of financial management, marketing and sales. While we are growing fast, we are still small enough to appreciate the contributions of each team member.

If the following describes you, you may be the rock star we’re looking for!

  • You get excited about opportunities to grow personally and professionally
  • You are self-motivated and goal-oriented
  • You see opportunities where others see a problem
  • Organization is your middle name
  • You enjoy managing people and projects
  • You prefer inspiration to dictatorship, but aren’t afraid to issue discipline when needed
  • You know how to do basic bookkeeping, invoicing and collections
  • You have some experience with marketing and sales
  • You learn new computer software and systems quickly
  • You bring order to chaos and are a natural at conflict resolution
  • You have a positive “can-do” attitude
