Administrative Assistant

Emberex is looking for a full-time administrative assistant to join our team in downtown Eugene, OR.

We are a software company specializing in the development of web and mobile applications. We’re looking for someone who can fit in with our unique blend of personalities, while acting as the professional face of our company when interacting with clients, visitors, and a steady stream of telemarketers and robo-calls.

When you’re not politely guarding our team from unwanted phone calls, you’ll be involved in a bunch of other activities. Here’s what you need to know:

  • You’ll need to do some stuff on a computer - Google Docs, MS Excel, and more. You may have some things to learn, but you need to be comfortable with technology.
  • You must have reliable transportation - part of your job will be buying lots of snacks for our team and running other errands.
  • We like to have fun company events - wine tours, ski/snowboard trips, happy hours, tailgates, and more. You’ll help with the planning and organizing, and we hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do.
  • Somebody has to keep our office in good enough shape that we’re not embarrassed to show our parents where we work - and that person is you. There are already people who take out the garbage and vacuum the floors and stuff like that, but we’ll want you to help us make sure nobody mistakes our office for a dorm room.

If this sounds like the right job for you, the next step is to convince us that you’re the right person for the job. We’d like to see a cover letter and a resume, and we encourage you to send us good ones. PDFs are great, links to video resumes are not.

Don’t just tell us you’re a good communicator, show us in your cover letter. Give us a glimpse into your personality, tell us why you want the job, and explain some of the big questions we might have about your resume - things like, “why does this applicant have a three year gap in his or her employment history

And please, please, please organize your resume so we can read it quickly. We’re looking through a lot of them, and if we’re confused or just spending too much time - we’re moving on to the next one
If we hire you, your starting wage will be $16/hr, and we’ll expect you to work weekdays from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. We’ll provide a fun office full of smart, creative people and sometimes a dog, excellent health, vision, and dental insurance for you and your family, a matching 401k plan, paid time off, in-office massages, and more.
