Want to help make an impact in the world of special needs?
We're looking for an experienced Executive Assistant to help with 15 to 20 hours of work per week.
You would be working directly with Casey Ames, the founder, and CEO of Harkla.
Applicants must be located in the Boise / Treasure Valley area but will be working from home most days, as Harkla is a remote company.
If you are unfamiliar with Harkla, please read about our company, mission, and core values below:
Harkla has one mission: Help families raise happy and healthy children with special needs.
This mission is at the core of everything we do. Every decision is centered around the question of "how does this help our customers?"
The way we differentiate ourselves from our competition is by always asking, how can we be more helpful? In customer service, our blog, or post-purchase information, we want to be more helpful.
Harkla's Core Principles:
Make sure to look through our product catalog so you are familiar with our company.
While the majority of this role will be helping with Harkla tasks, anything that saves Casey time will also be a part of this role. This can include personal travel, real estate tasks, and other businesses that Casey owns.
Tasks That You Will Help Casey With at Harkla:
Tasks Outside of Harkla that Casey May Need:
Software to be Comfortable With or Learn Quickly:
We need someone who is a detail-oriented perfectionist. Casey often times does not pay attention to details, so he needs someone who can counter that.
We need someone who is confident to learn how Casey would answer emails, and would be comfortable making decisions on which emails Casey should see, which ones can be ignored, and which ones could be answered by you.
Open ended problem solving must be a strength of yours. Being given a general topic to research, and coming back with answers well organized in a report will be a typical task required.
You must have 2+ years of assistant experience and be located in the Treasure Valley area.
Most days of the month would be remote based. Tasks that require leaving the house would be the minority of tasks you are working on. Since this is a mostly virtual position, you must be a self-starter, self-motivated, and able to work independently with minimal oversight.
While this role starts at 15 to 20 hours a week, there is room for growth as needed. As the company grows, the hours for this job will grow with it.
For all our hiring processes at Harkla, we follow this same protocol:
Application (below) that requires a 60 second video recording
Quick case study related to the position (this will be paid)
Video or in person interview (depending on where we are with COVID)
