I am the CEO and Co-Founder of a Qatar-based startup and we're working on some really awesome stuff.
It's not a sure bet yet, but we've gained some great momentum.
One of the things I am struggling with right now is making the best use of my time so we can grow to overcome the challenges we set on a mission to win.
That's why I'm looking to hire someone eager to grow by helping us grow.
I've worked with VAs before but never for my own company and the role basically involves offloading me with admin work, coordinating with the rest of the team, organizing my life (yes, the startup has been my life), documenting processes we discover, and etc.
How the role would work : I would like someone to partner with : someone I can fully trust to manage my email, calendar, appointments, communications.
Basically, your mission would be to make sure everything runs on time.
Sometimes, I tend to be so concerned about tiny details that don't really matter to the big picture.
I try hard to be nice, but I know our startup needs to face its most stressful moments in order for us to grow.
That's why I am hoping to work with someone who is more 3x more calm and 10x more organized than I am.
Some responsibilities you'll have : - managing my agenda - helping out with lead qualification - setting appointments with prospects -
coordinating with the team and new hires - setting the tone for our remote team by organizing our SOPs, Google Drive, team calendars, collaterals, deliverables, and weekly / periodic hangouts We will communicate daily and you'll help me make decisions that I need to have on deadlines we will set together.
You will conduct interviews and other discussions on my behalf when my schedule won't permit me to.
I will never yell or swear, but I like to be brutally honest in giving feedback so I will tell you what I like and don't like as we go along.
You will need to be able to help me be picky about how I and the very small team spend our time on.
Currently, we have a mission and a set of objectives for the year and I am not interested in anything that won't contribute to achieving those goals.
In the long term, I want you to grow in terms we will agree on later.
Other than being trustworthy, extremely organized and a good communicator, I am looking for someone who understands the inbound marketing, tourism, and advertising industries.
