This is a full-time role with the opportunity for flexible, hybrid work but MUST be located in the Portland, OR area and willing to work from Marmoset HQ one day per week.
Basics: Detail-oriented should be your middle name. You’re known for your organization and curiosity that keeps you learning and developing new systems and processes. You enjoy connecting with new people and maintaining relationships.
Personality: You’re driven by an inherent desire to help others, solve problems and maintain harmony. You welcome criticism and often seek critical feedback. A self-starter with a contagious “can-do” attitude. Able to stay calm, manage stress, and multitask while under pressure and deadlines. Managing microscopic details sounds like a fun challenge.
Abilities: Strong attention to detail, fast learner, excellent communicator. You are able to take a stacked to-do list and quickly and efficiently whittle it down. You’re a master of spreadsheets and numbers. You hold efficiency in high esteem and can develop and execute better processes when needed.

You’ve worked on a team where your strong attention to detail and highly organized attributes made an impact. Proficient in Excel. Experience with Intacct or Sage products would be great (but not required).
Passion + Purpose: You thrive in community and collaboration. You aspire to make a positive impact in the world. You love the arts and music.
Pay: This is an entry- to early career-level role with pay commensurate.
