THUMBWAR is a creative technical consulting company based in Los Angeles. We work with high-end brands such as CBS, E!, Turner Sports, Estee Lauder, and Fox Sports.
We are looking to hire an Executive Assistant.
The Executive Assistant’s main responsibility is supporting the needs of our CEO and CFO, and keeping our office and our projects moving forward in an organized and efficient manner. This typically involves organizing and collecting items for shipping, tracking shipments and calendars, reviewing budgets and spreadsheets, depositing checks, organizing expense reports, facilitating and starting conference calls, booking travel, and coordinating pickups & deliveries. You’ll also be doing general office admin & assistant tasks, such as ordering lunches, keeping supplies on hand, in-town errands, and making sure the office is running smoothly.
The ideal candidate must be highly organized, self motivated and possess a strong desire to discover and learn new technologies and concepts. The ideal candidate is personable and works well with others and finds challenges like plans that change at the last minute exciting. We’re always ready, but our clients are always changing the plan at the last minute.
That’s the job, but who are you?
-You make stuff happen. In fact, you’re probably already thinking of a way to set yourself apart and get this job.
-You’re organized. We’re talking next-level alphabetizing your spices and Rainman-like recall abilities to remember where you’ve put things - organized. It’s a huge part of this job.
-You’re creative and a self-starter. You enjoy learning and discovering better ways to do things.
-People always ask you to help because when you say you’re going to do something, you do it. Every time. Without fail.
Compensation will be based on experience with a competitive pay package, full benefits after a probationary period and generous a time off allowance. This position has potential for future advancement.
