Casting Call: Executive Assistant / Operations Generalist

^

You?

Are you a high-positive-energy, empathetic, and creative non-technical problem-solver, who loves contributing to a powerful mission through a supporting role?

Would you find it exciting rather than exhausting to be the primary support for a CEO / Founder who regularly appears in national newspapers, and who runs an intense schedule that can crisscross the world in a week?

Do you want to join a winning team while it is still small, and contribute to its growth to global impact?

Would you like to work in a company which has the rare freedom to pursue social impact while also generating profit?

We

We're a unique team which has the flexibility and size of a startup, but with the financial stability that comes with creating the world’s best live-streamed classes which teach kids to fall in love with thinking. We are inventors. We're the first in the history of education to put a professional actor in every online classroom, bridging the worlds of math and drama. We make math class actually fun, and as engaging as Twitch and TikTok.

See full experience

At the same time, our classes have the unique feature that they also teach empathy and kindness. Our mission is to build a more thoughtful world, one where people develop incredible skills and use them to help others. This will help to save humanity from the civilization-disrupting rise of AI.

Founder Po-Shen Loh is the Carnegie Mellon math professor whose inventions and escapades have been covered in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and many other international newspapers. He also served a 10-year term as the National Coach of the USA International Math Olympiad team. He gives around 200 public speeches each year (the most of any math professor in the world), and has co-created or appeared in videos totaling over 20 million YouTube views.

A rare job opportunity has opened, for the Executive Assistant primarily responsible for supporting him. This role is high-intensity, because you will have to keep up with him. You can get an idea of his personality by searching him up online, because he has been in the public eye for over a decade.

You would also spend part of your time assisting with other general business operations tasks. We run a global operation, with unique access to a dedicated offshore team which helps us conduct routine operations. You would be able to use their help as well, and so you would mostly be responsible for the non-routine tasks.
