Job description

We are looking for a versatile assistant to help our group of about 10 engineers with various tasks. Our engineering team consists of bright, young, talented individuals who together oversee nearly every aspect of our business. This job does not necessarily require technical knowledge (though that would be plus), but it does require critical thinking skills and attention to detail. An ideal candidate would be one who is quick (physically and mentally), is able to jump from task to task and not forget about what needs to get done, loves to interact with people, is not afraid to ask questions, is an excellent communicator, and can’t help but organize the world around them.

This position is for on-site work at our Las Vegas location because organizing stuff remotely would be difficult…unless you are a wizard, and then that would be cool.

Primary duties and responsibilities include:

Required skills:

Required traits:

Other desirable skills, traits, experience:

We are open to part time if you can be available at least 20 hours per week, but we would want you here daily. Compensation depends on your skills and is likely to go up as the company grows, but we are generally imagining something in the $12-18 per hour range or $27-38k for full-time salary.

How to apply
