Open Positions

Operations Manager (Posted March 1, 2018)

Are you a highly organized multi-tasker who feels that no task is too large or too small?

Your responsibilities would be an eclectic mix where the overarching theme is that you will happily do whatever it takes to keep the office running smoothly and to move tasks off senior managements’ plates – from reviewing contracts to onboarding new employees to planning the annual holiday party.
