Executive Assistant

We're reinventing the way companies learn and build knowledge across their organization, and we want you to join us!

Helpified is an online curation platform for teaching and learning. Our users build new skills by following curated, crowd-sourced learning paths made from existing web resources, and can teach others by creating their own learning paths. 

Join a growing, distributed team and help us change the world by making learning from the web faster, more efficient, and more accessible to everyone.

The offering  

We are looking for an executive assistant to help perform day-to-day tasks and aid in supporting our user base. You will report directly to the CEO. This is a full time position, and you will work from the Bradford, PA office or remote. 

As part of Helpified, you will:

  • Answer phone calls and emails
  • Manage schedules, meetings, and appointments
  • Assist in site-wide support for Helpified.com users  
  • Assist in marketing and lead generation tasks 
  • Learn new skills on the fly and work with new technology 

The requirements:

  • Have excellent writing and oral skills
  • Be organized, reliable and punctual 
  • Be likable, hard-working, and independent 

Where you'll be working 

We want you to work in the place that inspires you and makes you the happiest. Whether that's in our office, or anywhere in the world, we want to leave that up to you. You will work on a daily basis with team members, users and companies scattered around the globe, and we want our company and platform to be representative of that. Work is becoming less of a place that you go, and more of something you do. We want you to be the most effective at what you do from wherever you work best. 

Why is a remote, distributed workforce important to us?

  • We think this is the way of the future. Our daily workplace is Hipchat, Asana, and some Google Hangouts. This is no different than sitting next to each other in an office wearing headphones, and a little more fun! 
  • You have better, faster access to the world's best teammates undetermined by a given location. 
  • It's more productive and results-driven. Work is about getting things done, setting goals, and accomplishing milestones. Being miles away from each other helps us focus on what's important. 
  • It gives you more freedom. We want you to have a better work/life balance instead of commuting. Want to work from a coffee shop or on your porch? We want 
  • Timezones make us better. We have users to support 24 hours a day. Having team members in different time zones allows us to manage that more effectively. 
  • It forces us to find ways to form deeper bonds, shared values, and trust in you and with each other. 

Our learning culture 

Learning is of utmost importance for us and inside of any organization, hence why we exist. Being an online learning company, we're heavily steeped in eating our own lunch. We use Helpified to pick up new skills, to brush up on existing ones, and to have a better understanding of our changing world. As a team member, having an in-depth understanding of our product is an absolutely must. In using the product, you're improving your own life by learning the things that will help you move forward. We couldn't be more passionate about helping you build the skills you need for your future, and a good deal of your work life at Helpified is making sure that happens. 

Our values

Communication, transparency, patience, and open-mindedness are just a few of our cultural values at Helpified. Being a remote staff, your ability to communicate, express yourself, and work autonomously are imperative to our company's success. 

What we look for

we want to work with passionate, hard working people dedicated to building world-class products that enrich the lives of real people. Most importantly, we like to work with nice people who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty, work hard, and make mistakes. Your GPA, school prestige and past accomplishments matter far less to us than your ability to integrate yourself with our team and make things happen. Despite the benefits of working remotely, it takes a special person to succeed with this type of work. Trust is a given, and you have to be able to find the balance between working independently and your willingness to reach out for help.
