Administration/research assistant

February 16, 2017


Headquarters: Canada (role is remote but is open only to Canadians)
URL: http://prospress.bamboohr.com/jobs/

Seigur (seigur.co) is a small business management consulting company living the dream in beautiful Whistler, BC. Our primary contract is to deliver an exciting and ever-changing range of consulting services to a globally distributed software company (prospress.com).

Seigur is seeking an administration/research assistant to work with and learn directly from Ali, the principal consultant. You will also work with and learn alongside everyone on the Prospress team.

This is a dynamic and varied role that could see you engaged in anything from booking travel for company retreats, to researching information for blog posts, to arranging interviews for a recruiting campaign (and almost anything in between). The role is remote but is only open to Canadians (citizens or permanent residents). 

You can work from home or from your favourite cafe, and you can also mostly work flexible hours, so you can shred the slopes or go hiking in the mornings - or just sleep in if that’s what you like!

The only non-negotiable time commitments we have are weekly team meetings, and weekly one-on-one calls (1.5 hours of video calls in total). You will also need to be available for international travel to conferences and team retreats approximately once every 6 to 9 months. 

About you

You are a kind hearted and good natured person, who is comfortable with self-directed work yet also happy to do that work as part of a team. If you are an extrovert, you will need to at least understand and have empathy for introverts, as the majority of people you will work with are introverts.

Ideally, you have a business or similar degree, or you have equivalent work experience. Fluency in two or more languages (one of those being English), is also a highly desirable trait as our customers are located all over the world (but it’s not a requirement of the job).

You will need superior written communication skills, organisational wizardry, flexibility, task adaptability, and a love of attention to detail. Your capacity for problem solving and your ability to prioritise and manage competing tasks will be crucial to your success in this role.

You must be computer savvy, and comfortable with using and learning a range of browsers, web applications, and programs. Experience with WordPress or even WooCommerce would be an advantage, but it is not a requirement. The right person will be able to rapidly acquire the necessary skills because we will provide lots of coaching and training.

You have a positive mindset, and take pride in your work as you are committed to consistently doing the best possible job you can. You seek out opportunities for self-improvement as a path to both personal and professional development. 

You also are comfortable with bad puns or at least with people who attempt to use them haha ;)

While the role is technically remote/distributed (and you can live anywhere in Canada), this position is offered by a Canadian company and we seek applications from Canadian citizens and permanent residents. We are not able to sponsor work authorisations for this position.

About us

Seigur Ltd is a consulting and research company based in Whistler BC. The main contract is delivering management consulting services to a small but rapidly growing software company based in San Francisco (prospress.com). Prospress has a globally distributed team across four countries and three continents. As Prospress grows, so does the workload for Seigur. Therefore our roles will continue to expand, giving you increasing opportunities to learn a range of skills.

 We have some pretty neat offerings, like:

  • a sliding leave policy (you will start with four weeks paid leave and it grows to five weeks after you’ve been with us for five years)

  • your own Professional Development fund to cover the cost of self-guided learning

  • fair pay and recognition 

  • autonomy and flexibility

About the process
Please apply through the Prospress jobs board. Although we will manage the recruitment process through Prospress, you will be employed by Seigur which is a Canadian company.
