About This Job
You could be our next Editorial/Design Assistant if you:
> You know how to use WordPress: You know your way around WordPress and you like laying out blog posts, updating plug-ins, responding to comments, etc.
> You’ve got an eye for design: Rank & File branding is right up your alley and you’ve also got a design-eye yourself. Staying “on brand” is something that come easy for you, so you could curate photos for our Instagram or our blog with no problem!
> You’re a natural writer: You have a talent for writing that feels conversational, authentic and natural… with a glimpse of human here and there. Writing doesn’t take up too much of your time and you really enjoy it! Experience with proofing content for grammatical errors would be a plus, plus!
> You’re a social media junkie: Social media is really energizing for you. You love creating beautiful, engaging posts and following up on comments and likes!
> You know how to use Active Campaign: formatting newsletters could be a part of your responsibility so it’s important that the technology around it feels easy to you (or that you are happy to learn it on your own time.)
> You are up to speed on technology. It comes easy to you and you aren’t scared to learn new systems either – it’s fun for you! You are already comfortable working with Google Drive and it’s apps (docs, sheets, slides). You also can use Slack to keep up with internal communications.
> You love the purpose-driven entrepreneurship space. You are a big fan of social good companies, startups or you have been an entrepreneur yourself! You regularly follow the industry or are part of other entrepreneurship communities so you have your finger on the pulse of what’s happening.
We’re also hiring a virtual administrative assistant, and are open to hiring one person for both roles. So, make sure you let us know if you have skills for any of these items as well:
> You are organized and like managing projects. You really enjoy tracking progress and you like nerding out on keeping up with deadlines. You always think ahead and can pinpoint what needs to happen next. Experience with Asana or Clickup Project Management software is a plus.
> Emailing is your jam. You are a rock star at keeping inboxes organized and you are super great at following up and making sure that everyone is being cared for. You don’t mind managing several things at once: scheduling a meeting, answering a Rank & File member question and following up on an upcoming article for the magazine.
> Are comfortable following procedures. You like taking action when it’s your time to shine and following operational procedures to check administrative to-do items off of your list.
